Is White the Optimal Color for Your Spaces?

Is White the Optimal Color for Your Spaces?

How do you feel about the color white? Do you think it’s a little...meh? What if I told you the color white isn’t all it’s cracked up to be? It is aesthetically presentable, yes, but the color white is also symbolic of many things. White can be a lovely, and even useful tool for your spaces!

Let’s start here: white isn’t really a color—or rather, white is a color with an implied asterisk. You can’t mix any colors naturally and end up with white, which would make it not a color. A white light shown through a prism of some sort reflects the entire color spectrum, though, which would make it every color.

You’re probably wondering what this has got to do with your spaces. Well, because white contains all colors on the visible spectrum, it also contains all wavelengths on the visible spectrum. That allows light to be reflected most easily in white spaces than in non-white spaces, which creates the illusion that white spaces are larger than spaces that are not white. You can use the color white to make a space feel less cramped and less stressful.

A 2013 study saw that people prefer white building interiors. The same study found that people choose white rooms for quietness and focus. White spaces can literally help you achieve your goals!

White has symbolized cleanliness since around the 17th century in Europe and during the Civil War era in early America. People thought white undergarments had cleansing power, and stains on the garments were their proof. In the 19th and 20th centuries, white’s association with cleanliness and hygiene extended to hospitals and other places like that. By 1925, the color white came to be used in the home to show personal cleanliness.

White symbolizes freshness and new birth. Because you can’t mix colors to create it, it is pure like new things. White is a symbol of opulence and status, as well. Richer people treasured white linens and things simply because they were difficult to clean and easy for them to get.

Besides the implicit meanings and the science of white spaces, the truth is the color white will always look good. White plays well with every color because it is every color. You can never go wrong with the color white for your spaces; it is a safe bet.
