To create an impact, it is necessary to go with the colors that fit rightly within the space and exhibits the homeowner's personality as well. Hence, instead of choosing colors randomly try out these brilliant tips to change the look of your home.
LIGHT COLOR vs DARK COLOR - THE LINK BETWEEN SIZE AND COLOR
Change begins when the key elements of interior designing are being implemented rightly on the project. As designing has got a lot to do with creating illusions, the first step to be worked on is the size of the rooms.
Low light paint colors can make a room look open and airy, which in result can make a small room look larger and a large room look vast. Whereas, if the darker color palette is being used in a small room, it creates a feeling of crampedness and on the other hand, a large room will look perfectly balanced with the right flow of colors from the tints to the shades! (Tints are basically created by the blending of color white to create the lightness whereas shades are created by blending of the color black, to create just the opposite effect.)

HOW MUCH BOLD IS GOOD
Always play safe, when it comes to painting a small home. Going way too bold while choosing colors can create an imbalanced aura. Yes, it is in trend to add in a bold style statement. But in reality, a vibrant touch can keep the excitement alive just for a week or two. With time, it gets tiresome to match and consider the boldly painted wall each time before purchasing a furniture or a decorative accent! Therefore, stick to one single color family or opt for contrast colors in the lightest forms. For instance, a combination of dusty beige and green!
