We are limited in how much space we can make in our homes, other than tearing down walls. You might be surprised to learn that the paint colors you choose can make your home seem larger.
Sometimes, we feel confined by the architecture and the way we live in our homes.
Wall colours lighter than your walls can help you expand your space visually and make it feel more spacious.
Abbe Fenimore, the interior designer at Studio Ten 25, explained to Well+Good that bright and light colours could make a space reflect more light, maximizing any natural sunlight in the room. Bright colors can also create the illusion of larger spaces. Use bright and light colors for trim and doors to keep the walls feeling bigger.
Painting a room is the fastest and most cost-effective way to transform a space. These colours will instantly increase the size of your room. Here are some tips and tricks for getting the job done.
Warmer greys that transition into “greige” continue to be used in interior spaces. They keep spaces bright and light without being as cool as traditional greys.
This tiny bathroom uses tiling up to the ceiling to maximize the space.
Aqua is as calm and serene as the ocean. It blends seamlessly into the background, blending in like waves without taking over the space.
These can be paired with natural textures and light colours in soft furnishings. You can also add bolder colours to a cushion or lamp by adding metallics or other metallics.
Pink can add warmth without being too strong, especially in the Millennial Pink shades.
Instead of painting a room or wall, highlight architectural details like those shown here. This will add interest and complement the white base.
BLACK AND WHITE
In any interior style, black and white look chic. Black adds style to a space by adding details and accessories. You can use matte black to add patina, high-gloss, glass, or ceramic for a touch of glamour.
