The Truth About Dark Walls In Small Rooms
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.
