It may not seem like something important, but the colors and the way we choose to paint the walls greatly alter the feeling of space. In addition to analyzing the tones and the way they transform the environment, it is essential to think about the position of the paintings. A dark ceiling and light walls, for example, give the feeling of a lower place.
So, do you want to find out how it works? Some of the tricks can even “increase” or “decrease” the space. You can be sure that the tips I’m going to give you now will make your home (or office) even more beautiful 😉

Do you have a small environment and want to make it look bigger? So bet on neutral colors! The use of lighter tones makes the environment much brighter. That way, you can enjoy using more colorful furniture and decor. The contrast is beautiful, leaving the environment super charming. Dark floors, as opposed to light walls, also give that same effect!

Dark colors in the entire environment, including the ceiling, give the opposite effect of neutral colors. This type of painting is suitable for larger places that do not have that cozy atmosphere, you know? In small spaces, it ends up giving the impression that the place is even smaller. However, it is great to make the room cozy.
Since there are no rules and these are just suggestions, be sure to use your creativity. Bathrooms, for example, look beautiful with dark colors in the decor. In fact, by clicking here you can be inspired by several bathrooms all Black. They’re all wonderful!

Painting one of the walls of a room with a dark color means shortening it. While all the others are painted in neutral colors, the darker one brings flatness! If you intend to do the opposite, and paint all the walls in dark tones with the exception of one, which will be light, it will be the highlight of the room.
Another interesting effect is produced when only the side walls are painted with closed tones. The feeling will be that the space is narrower and longer!

For the problem of very narrow spaces, there is also a solution. It is recommended that you paint the back wall of the room and the ceiling in the same color – preferably using a vibrant tone. For the desired effect to happen, be sure to paint the larger walls (which are usually the sides) with lighter colors. Lighter floors are a great addition to this type of painting 🙂

Stretches

Is there a way to make the space look more elongated and with higher walls? Yes! To achieve this result, just paint the dark tones walls and the ceiling with a neutral color. This color contrast is responsible for the effect of stretching and “lifting” the space. If you are really looking for the opposite, just paint the ceiling with a more closed tone and neutral walls. Thus, you will have the feeling that the right foot of the room has “decreased”.
