has the ability to make a room appear larger or smaller. The right colors can make even the smallest rooms seem bright and airy. By pairing bright hues with contrasting darker shades, you can instantly add space to your room.
White With Accents
White rooms are easy to work with because they look good with any accent color. You can pair it with dark and dramatic colors. You can paint a white accent wall without making your room look tiny.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with color. Try a black-and-white checkerboard wall. Paint coral and turquoise for that touch of beach flavor or paint an entire wall fire-engine red or cobalt blue. As long as the other three walls are bright white, your room will look large and spacious.
Sunny Cheery Colors
Yellow and orange are great additions to small rooms. The best shades to use are soft yellow, pale yellow, butter, lemon, or banana. When it comes to orange, use sherbet or pastel orange. It’s better to use these colors with dark tones if your room is narrow.
Paint your wall with vertical stripes. This will create the illusion of a longer room. Add some fun color elements with lime green and sorbet orange.
Under The Sea
This next idea is great for a children’s bedroom. Sea foam green, light blues, and soft greens are relaxing colors that enlarge your space. Plus, you can mix them with reds, corals, blues, whites, and other colors. Paint your accent wall emerald green or forest green for that pop of color.
Blue is another color that helps widen a room. It looks great with white walls and light carpeting. Keep your window treatments and trimmings white to add more space to an already small room.
Easter Egg Colors
Pastel colors aren’t reserved for spring and kids. These hues can make any space appear bigger. Use touches of lavender, lilac, soft pink, baby blue, mint green, and peach. Break up the colors by painting your walls beige, tan, or cream. Paint your door and window frames in similar neutral tones.
Add accents to your room with darker shades in the same spectrum. Some fashionable accents include rugs, blankets, and throw pillows.
That’s not all. Use plenty of natural light and mirrors to help open up the space in your room. Don’t want to do yourself? University Painters have years of expertise when it comes to interior painting. Call us today to add a fresh coat of paint to a space in your home.
