From social media to your favorite home decor magazine, we’ve seen the lustrous all white floor look. It’s simply pure and chic. Have you been considering stepping outside the box and jumping on the all-white floor bandwagon? Before you make the final decision, you’ll have to consider the bad, the good and the ugly. There are some things you should know about an all-white flooring scheme.

Is It Ideal for Your Home?
Before visiting Century Tile, you’ll have to first determine whether all white floors are ideal for your living space. It largely depends on your lifestyle. If you have children and pets then a white flooring scheme can a be a challenge to maintain. White flooring requires regular maintenance to keep looking glossy and new. If you live in a household with children and pets than the maintenance process may be more intensive. Can you handle it?

Glossy white floors can make a small space look bigger than what it actually is. It reflects natural light, casting the glow all around the room which can really make the space appear dreamy.

Keeping White Floors Clean
Of course, the biggest challenge that comes with having white floors is keeping them clean. The type of flooring material is a big factor in the maintenance process. Laminate and tile white flooring can be easily cleaned with a general cleaning agent. White carpet will be more of a challenge with stains.

Daily vacuuming or sweeping is necessary especially if you have kids or pets. You’ll also have to make an investment in quality cleaning tools. You can consider implementing a “no shoes in the house” policy to keep mud from being tracked indoors. In addition, area rugs will help minimize the dirt as well.
