Dark colors in small rooms are becoming more commonplace and more sought after than ever before. There was a time when interior design experts would tell you to avoid dark colors in small rooms at all costs. The idea was that dark colors will make the room seem smaller than it actually is. Today dark colors are seen in so many small homes, it has basically become a trend among rebel designers and brave homeowners.

While white and lighter paint colors can make a small room seem larger, dark colors can do the same thing, just in a different way. “Instead of reflecting more light, it reflects less, and though this difference may seem misleading, the depth of its color and shadows — and the fact that it’s not so clearly defined by the light — blurs the edges of the room. By absorbing the light, the walls of the room are less clearly marked and can give an illusion of more space.” – Kevin Francis O’Gara

People are becoming more and more comfortable with using bold colors in their homes, no matter the size.
