White Bathroom Ideas with Wood Accents

White is a popular color among modern farmhouses and tiny homes alike thanks to its minimal feel, neutrality, and fresh aesthetic. As of late, we’re particularly head over heels for white bathrooms with wood accents.

Sprinkling a handful of wood accents into a white bathroom is a winning combo for creating a captivating design decor brimming with texture and warmth. Plus, wooden accents can be added with any budget, while being curated to your décor taste.

The Truth About Using One Flooring Type in an Entire House

The word of the decade is simplification, and that is precisely what is happening within interior design. Where walls once separated every room in our homes, we now have open floorplans that showcase unobstructed spaces and bright light. This is possible because of how contractors and designers have encouraged the selection of one flooring type to extend through the entire house. https://upgradedhome.com/should-flooring-be-the-same-throughout-the-house/ The obvious benefits include better resale value, cohesiveness, and seamless transitions, but where there are positives, there will always be negatives to consider.
