Maybe you think white floors are reserved for sleek, modern, sparse interiors. Not so! There are so many different types and styles of white floors that they can work no matter what your style goals. Here's the proof.

Glossy

In an all-white room like this one above, the glossy floors provide a nice, shiny highlight that perks up the room without adding any color.

Rustic

White doesn't have to mean stuffy — these floors show their wear. They look lived-in and it works perfectly with the rest of the rustic, antique white in this hallway.

Textured

If you're worried about keeping white floors clean, adding in some (dirt hiding) texture or using an unexpected material (here: concrete) makes them light in color without feeling too precious and high maintenance.

Painted wood

Beaten up wood that's past its prime can get a new life with a white paint. The light color hides the bad but keeps the texture and grain.

Matte

In a space with a lot of glossy surfaces already, matte floors might be the way to go. It keeps the overall look monochrome and the flashy elements grounded.

Convinced? Would you go white?
