Dark walls change visually the room’s proportions
Let’s start with the most used statement that dark colors are not a good choice for small rooms. In a way it is a true statement, but it shouldn’t be a general rule.
Of course, you need to be aware that darker colors change the visually feeling of the room’s proportions.
If you have a large living space, a dark wall color makes the room feel smaller.
However, if you choose a dark, but warm color such as red, orange, or yellow on the room walls, the room still feels smaller but comfortable and cozier.
If you choose a dark and cool color on the walls such as green, blue, or purple, the home interior will feel larger than when choose a warm and dark color.
More than that if you want to change the experience of the ceiling height, a dark color makes the ceiling height appear lower.
