A dark wall changes the room proportions

Letโ€™s start with the most common and obvious thing when we think of apply dark colors in our home interiors. The statement that dark colors are not a good choice for small rooms.

In my opinion you shouldnโ€™t be afraid by that. More importantly you need to be aware that with a dark color can change the room’s proportions feeling.

For example, if you have a spacious room, a dark color on the walls makes the room feel smaller. But if you choose a dark nuance of a color, such orange, yellow, or red to paint the walls, the living space will certainly also feel smaller but warm and cozier.

However, if you are you opt for a dark, but cold color on the walls  such as blue, purple, or green the living space will feel larger than if you choose a dark and warm color. Interesting, isnโ€™t it?

If you have a high ceiling, a dark color makes the ceiling height appear lower.

Therefore, sometimes is a great idea to cozy up your home interior to by choosing a dark color on all the room walls. In this way you will create a real “wow feeling” and add coziness and character to your home interior.
