What flooring and trim goes nice with white walls?





Im remodeling my apartment and my roommate chose white to paint the walls in our entry way and living room? i get to choose the carpet or flooring (hardwood, etc) and color of the trim, does anyone know what color of trim, and what type of floor would go nicely with the white walls?

    A light wood trim would look nice–don’t go too dark or it will make your walls look super white. The carpet depends on your lifestyle. White is only for super clean people. A nice neutral color is always good (a little darker if you tend to make messes).

    Lucky you! I’d rather be allowed to choose flooring and trim any day! That’s a keeper whereas paint can be changed.

    As for what matched white walls, basically everything! White is not a color in decorating, but the absense of all color and that is why you can match it with anything.

    So, you can buy whatever pleases you! Do keep in mind that the lighter the floor color, the larger the room will appear and the darker the floor color, the smaller the room will appear. Also, lint, dust, etc., shows up more on dark floors.

    What you choose to use as material for the floor really depends on your budget. Hardwood floors are definitely the best for getting a return on your money. If you can’t afford that, then consider these types of flooring:
    - laminate wood floor
    - vinyl soft floor covering
    - bamboo flooring (my favorite, by the way!)
    - ceramic tile (did you know that you can get ceramic tile that looks soooo much lilke wood, you have to touch it to know the difference? It’s better than hardwood since it doesn’t scratch and is very resistant!)

    Will you be painting the trim or using natural wood? If using natural wood, it is advisable to match the floor.

    Enjoy!

    Wow. The possibilities are endless. Everything goes with white. Wood floors are in right now. You can save $$ by going with a laminate. Then you’ll mos def wanna get an area rug to add color & texture into the room:

    As for the trim, if you just want a *slight* change from the white, I would choose Sherwin Williams’ “creamy.” If you’re looking for something to make it stand out, then I would recommend “connected gray.” Both will coordinate with whatever accents & furnishings you have.
