The idea of a white room is increasingly popular in Australia, but a new survey finds many Australians are still sceptical.
The survey of 2,200 people found more than two-thirds of Australians thought a white bedroom was the right place to be for the right people, with about a third saying they did not feel they were ready for the change.
“If you have a white bed, you’re probably going to be a white person,” said Dr Julie Wilson, from the University of Melbourne’s School of Social Work.
“You’re probably a white woman or a white man.”
Ms Wilson said it was also important to look at the “chosen place” of people.
“People can have preferences, so you need to look for that right balance, and you need people who fit into that,” she said.
“White people, white women, white men.
I think you can use a white space, but not for everybody.”
I think it’s a really important point that people talk about, that you need space to make yourself comfortable.
“What’s in a white house?
White rooms are often thought of as a way to create privacy, and in some ways, they are.
But Dr Wilson said there were advantages and disadvantages to a white area.”
The white bedroom, the bedroom that you have, is a lot more private,” she told the ABC.”
It has more furniture and more space and it’s just a lot of things that you might have in a traditional room, where you’d be looking out, you wouldn’t see the room that you’re looking in.
“She said that was not necessarily the case when people lived in homes that were more open, like those in the US, where people might move into a white home.”
A lot of people are living in white spaces, but it’s not necessarily because of the privacy,” she explained.”
They might just have a little more privacy in their home because it’s more open.”‘
A white room isn’t necessarily the right choice’Dr Wilson said she had a few tips for people to consider before deciding to buy a white-coloured home.
But the survey showed some of the biggest factors were the type of room, the space and the furniture.”
You can get the white space if you have an open-plan bedroom,” she advised.”
Or if you don’t have a big space, or if you want to do it in a different room.
“In the meantime, you might be better off just buying a new white room and putting in a new mattress, bed and chair.”
For a lot people, they just want to buy the white bedroom and it doesn’t matter what else is in there,” Dr Wilson advised.
