Many people think white makes areas feel bigger, but in this post, we show dark colors that make your room look bigger. Here are a few paint color families to try.
Navy Blues color scheme
“Using a single dark color assists the walls recede in a small space,” says Kari McIntosh, who especially loves blues in rooms with lots of millwork. For this butler’s pantry, the girl had an Abnormals Unknown wallpaper customized to match the actual cabinet paint.
Scarlet Reds colors that make your room look bigger
Especially when painted within high gloss-which bounces lighting around and fools the attention in to believing a room is actually larger than it is-dark red-colored walls have tons of level, says Dennis Brackeen. In order to supercharge this sitting area, he used Fine Chemicals of Europe’s Hollandac Excellent 98 finish (a so-shiny-it-looks-wet oil paint).
Charcoal Grays color
“For a small place with bright southern side, there’s nothing I love greater than a bold black,” states Elaine Griffin. “It assumes the flavor of whatever you coating on top.” But stay away from ultra-flat finishes if you proceed this route, she advises-otherwise you’ll see every finger-print.
