Paint can completely transform any space in your home. From the look, feel, and even size, paint is the best way to add a new touch of color and style. If you are looking to make a room look and feel bigger than it actually is, you should consider repainting it! Here are some tips for how to paint a room to make it look larger:
Paint All Rooms The Same Color
Painting all the rooms in your home the same color may seem like a strange idea, especially if you want diversity in your space. But if you are really trying to create a bigger space, this is a great way to do it. It will give your home a seamless look while brightening up the space. Looking around your house and having the same color everywhere will make it look bigger.
Add an Accent Wall
Accent walls act as an optical illusion. It becomes a focal point in a room and can make there seem like there is more space. Another way of using accent walls is to paint the two longest walls in the room the same color, usually a darker color than the other two walls. Emphasizing the longer walls can give an illusion of a larger space.
Choosing a Paint Finish
There are different paint finishes that you can choose from when picking out paint. What finish is right for trying to make a room feel bigger? Some paint finishes include glossy, matte, satin, and eggshell. To make a room feel and look bigger, it’s best to go for either eggshell or satin finish. These finishes can reflect light well, making a space look more open.
Choose The Right Undertone
Undertone is basically the color underneath the paint color. Undertones will determine the color that shows up when the paint is dry on a surface. These undertones can be pink, green, taupe, gray, or violet. To make a room look bigger, you want to aim for one that matches your room’s elements. This could be one that matches your furniture, light fixtures, or any other aspects of the space.
Painting a Room Completely Dark
Many people believe that a darker room may make it look closed in. In reality, it can make the space look endless! Lighter colors can give a more boring look, and when you have a smaller room like a den or office, you want to make it look exciting and inviting. Consider using darker greys or blues to open up the space.
