If you have a small room in your home, are you looking for ways to make it bigger? Have you considered that painting it in a certain way might be able to make it appear bigger? Believe it or not, this can be done with the right painting techniques and strategy. Read on to learn 7 ways interior paint can help make your small room look bigger.

7 Ways to Make a Small Room Look Bigger

Here are seven tips to make a small room look bigger with paint:

  1. Use Light Colors

As you might suspect, light colors are the best when it comes to painting small rooms. Darker, bold colors can cramp the room and make it feel smaller, which you don’t want to do.

  1. Offset with Accessories

If you need color, feel free to use accessories to bring that color back in. Pops of colors will help accent your gorgeously light colors that are helping the room feel bigger.

  1. Don’t Forget the Ceiling

Painting the ceiling (again, a lighter color) is also helpful to ensure you are opening up the space. It is also helpful to paint the ceiling the same color as the walls if you can to open it up even further.

  1. Ask a Professional

If you’re not sure about your paint choice, consulting a professional is always a good idea. They have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly of paint color choices. Let the mistakes of others work for you.

  1. Do the Baseboards

Don’t forget the baseboards! Making these a consistent color with the walls can also help the space feel larger, as it will add height to the room visually.

  1. Test Your Color

Be sure to test your color to see if you like it. If you think it might be too dark, you’re likely better off going a bit lighter, as colors tend to appear darker once you have them completely up and painted.

  1. Make it Consistent

Another strategy to ensure your home’s small room looks bigger is to use the same color or different hues of it across rooms that connect. This will help give the space an open, larger feel.
