3 Tips To Help Small Spaces Feel Bigger

April 14, 2017 at 2:49 pm | No comment | Category: Blog

With the right paint, you can create any type of space you want.  This goes for small spaces, too.  If you’re wondering what to do with the small or narrow room in your home, use our tips to choose paints that will open the space up and make it inviting and deceptively spacious.

  • White with accents – A room always looks largest when it’s painted white.  Plus, white rooms are extremely versatile.  They allow you to use nearly any item in decorating, and create a sort of “blank canvas” for incorporating any type of furniture, art, and other decor.  Start with an entirely white room and add a colorful accent wall.  Your accent wall could be a solid color, perhaps in a jewel tone or other bold color, or have high contrast stripes, or a faux finish technique.  As long as three of the four walls are white, the space will feel open.   
  • Light tones with intriguing contrast – Even if you don’t like the concept of white walls, you can still use the same concept of the white room with an accent wall.  Instead of white, however, choose a pale pastel or neutral, and then choose a clever contrast for the accent wall.  For example, you could paint three walls in a pale beige, and then choose a navy blue, emerald green, or warm brown for the accent wall.  Since the lighter the color is the larger the room will feel, when using this technique you’ll want your neutral or pastel walls to be quite pale.
  • Grays and blues  – Blues, grays, aquas, and other sea tones can fool the eye into thinking a room is more expansive than it actually is.  With the right sea tone – such as “Stone Lion” by Sherwin-Williams, “Coastal Fog” by Benjamin Moore, or “Skylight” by Farrow & Ball – you can paint both the walls and the trim the same color (or stick with standard white trim) and create a seemingly vast space.

It’s amazing what you can do with the right paint colors or combinations.  Take one of our tips and get creative with your tiny room — chances are it’ll feel more spacious and inviting than you knew it could!  If you’re still on the fence about which interior paint colors to use in your small space – or in any room of the house – call on the best professional painting company in your area and let the professional color consultants help you find your way!
