9 Homes That Nail the All-White Look for a Stylish and Timeless Finish

November 29, 2022

And when we’re done, you’ll want one too.

If there were a renovation cheat for a home with an interior that’s as bright and spacious as it is timeless, we think the answer would be “use white”. But would you take the next step to go “all-white” with your interior?

After all, there’s the risk of your house looking too dull or clinical with nearly everything in white – but as these homes prove, it can have fantastic (and very stylish) results when done right!

Having an all-white home doesn’t mean it’ll end up looking the same wherever you look, without any variations. Case in point: the home above, whch pulls off the look with various textures that create visual interest.

The wainscoting along the recessed wall creates an air of elegance while the high gloss floor tiles break up the single shade of paint used in the living room.

To round it off and create a warm and inviting vibe, the homeowners have used a variety of soft furnishings in off-whites and muted tones.

Meanwhile, shaker cabinets and a textured backsplash are used in the kitchen to add depth to a space that could otherwise look flat.

You don’t have to limit yourself to plain white tiles for your bathroom – this bathroom exudes luxurious vibes with its white marble walls with gold veins.


2. A 5-room resale HDB flat at Punggol Drive

While it’s no secret that white helps to make a room look more spacious, this 5-room HDB flat looks even bigger than its 112 square metres. That’s thanks to the minimalist approach the homeowners have chosen to go with, like in the living room with a single sofa and a big rug that emphasise the space.

The built-ins with wainscoting details stretch up to the ceiling, adding a visual weight that draws attention away from the ceiling to make the room look taller than it actually is.

Keeping to the minimalist theme, this thin-framed mirror blends in seamlessly and softens the look of the space along with the throw pillows.

Consistency in design, like these wainscoting details of the kitchen island, helps to create a seamless visual flow in this open-concept space.

Instead of using a partition/door to separate the shower area from the rest of the bathroom, the homeowners chose to have a low-level area with a drop instead for a more spacious feel.

And not to forget the console sink which doesn’t have any storage underneath, creating more ‘empty’ space visually.


3. A 2-bedroom condo at Parc Riviera

We love the understated luxury of this 2-bedroom condo with its cool-toned interior. The floor-to-ceiling built-ins emphasise the height and the full-length mirrors amplify this effect while adding to the elegance of the space.

If you’re struggling to find ways to make your home look bigger visually, mirrors are one clever way to ‘open’ the space.

And, as you can see in this home, the owners have made actual space with a dining table that can be put away when not in use.


4. A 4-room BTO at Northshore Drive

Here’s another all-white home that minimalist enthusiasts will adore! Part of what gives it such a relaxing and inviting atmosphere are the curves that break harsh lines throughout the home.

The warm lighting also creates a cosy atmosphere and makes the different spaces feel less clinical.

In the living room, the homeowners opted for custom carpentry that curves to conceal the household shelter instead of following the original rectangular shape.

You can find these curves in the pendant light hanging over the dining table and even the furniture, like this armchair next to the frosted ‘window’ looking into the kitchen.

As the saying goes, home is where the heart is – and cliché as it sounds, what’s your home without pieces that show off your personality, or keepsakes that you treasure?

An all-white home could end up looking and feeling too clean and detached, so you can add a personal touch with decor around the house, like the owners of this home did.

They put up paintings in the dining area and various other ornaments/items in a recessed wall niche, while the kitchen counter and the bedroom have small spaces set aside for books.

If you’re a bookworm and you don’t have enough space for a dedicated bookshelf or a home library, that’s a neat way to have your favourite reads within reach wherever you are!

Choosing ‘white’ for your interior can be mind-boggling since there are hundreds of shades to choose from (no, we’re not pulling your leg). Maybe you want a warm white with yellow undertones, like in this home, or a cool white with purple undertones.

With help from your ID, you could even choose to layer multiple shades of white to create contrast.

The elevated wainscoting frames in the living room are filled with a subtle and textured wallpaper that contrasts the warm white walls, while the ceiling is a pure white.

Painting doesn’t have to be limited to walls – take a look at how these doors are painted a different white from the ceilings for a clear and charming contrast.

Similarly, the built-in study and wardrobes in this bedroom are a different shade from the warm-toned wall for a pleasing contrast.

An all-white home is the perfect blank canvas to help make everything else stand out. You’ll find yourself noticing the different textures, fabrics and materials used, like this home’s black and chrome furniture and fittings.

If you want a walk-in wardrobe that’s different from the rest, we think this one hits the mark; simple black frames and shelves are used to separate the segments for a more airy look, with white as a backdrop that helps to emphasise these lines.


8. A 5-room BTO at Senja Valley

With the flip of a (literal) switch, this home gets warmer and cosier. In an all-white home that could end up feeling bare or dull, warm lighting can make a huge difference.

The pendant lighting in the dining area here visually ‘pulls’ the ceiling down and grounds the space, and of course adds the ‘oomph’ factor.

In the bedroom, let your impressive collection of bags or accessories in your walk-in wardrobe steal the show with backlighting.

If you’re more inclined to have cool lighting, but still want some warmth and cosiness, using natural materials like in this home could be your answer.

From the wooden flooring around the home, to furniture like the rattan console and nested coffee table in the living room, the owners of this home have made choices that add character to their home.
