Enhance Small Spaces with Paint Color
A common misconception about the design of small spaces is that an all-white color palette can enhance the size. The reality is that the best way to overcome a diminutive space is to create an inviting atmosphere using more adventurous paint colors. Design experts say that there are really no rules to transforming a small interior living space with a new paint color. The possibilities of what you can do with color are endless.
Paint an Accent Wall
Choose a bold color for one of the walls in your petite space. A darker color could create the illusion that the wall is receding, which will also make the room seem more spacious. The transformation created by painting an accent wall can be amazing, changing a space from awkward to awesome. Using a color wheel is a foolproof way to ensure that the color of your accent wall complements the other walls.
Choose Bright Colors
The paint colors available to choose from vary greatly from dull shades to sharp, bright colors. Clear, vivid colors are excellent for expanding a small space. If you paint one wall a sharp color and use negative space between the wall and other décor that ties into the same color scheme, the clarity and openness of the space will be enhanced.
An exciting way to add depth to a tiny room is to paint various splashes of color. For example, paint the inside of a bookshelf, a windowsill, or a radiator with an unexpected color. Another type of surprising color accent that can open up crowded spaces is to transition from a dark color, such as in the hallway, to a lighter wall shade.
Paint a Bodacious Bathroom
Amp up the look of your bathroom by going with bold shades of your favorite colors. You may enjoy a luscious chocolate brown or a palette of peachy pinks. Create major effect with your choice of paint color.
Dramatic Office Space
Your home office may not take up much square footage of your home, but that doesn’t mean it can’t have big impact. Place your desk against an accent wall painted in the dramatic color of your choice and surround it with lighter shades of trim. Bring a similar complementary shade into a chair or other décor, for maximum effect.
Tie in your ceiling to a truly unique design that will expand the look of your cozy space. Paint the ceiling a dark shade and extend the color down in stripes either a couple of feet or to a chair rail with a lighter color below.
Spice Up the Kitchen
Kitchen design experts say that small kitchens are great places for eye-catching paint colors. Glam up your kitchen with a trendy tint. You can’t go wrong with a red shade, such as Benjamin Moore’s Berry-Red (2084-30) or Milano Red (1313).
