The Differences in Painting Smaller and Larger Rooms

Did you know that you can change the feeling of a room just by the paint color you use? With the proper colors, you can transform a room by making a smaller room appear larger and a larger room appear smaller. It is all in the magic of paint!

Smaller Rooms

If you want to transform smaller rooms such as kitchens or bathrooms to appear larger, you will want to use light colors, as these colors tend to recede. When you paint a smaller room a light color such as a light green or neutral tan, your eyes travel continuously around the room so that it appears more spacious. Also, you can paint the ceiling a lighter color to raise the apparent height of the ceiling.

Still, want to add a little color to your room? Paint just one wall a darker color to add some flair without making the room seem even smaller!

Looking to add some personality to your outdoor porch? Paint your porch a soft blue to resemble the sky!

Larger Rooms

For larger rooms to be cozier, paint the walls with darker colors. For an even more personal feeling, paint the ceiling a darker color. This is because a darker color trim doesn’t stand out and makes the room appear smaller. This is great for large bedrooms and living rooms. Deep blues, rich reds and dark browns are great colors to use!

When painting larger rooms these dark colors, the color combinations are endless, making it very easy to decorate with.
