One of the neat things that painting can do for a house’s interior is to grant an optimal illusion that the place is bigger than they really are. Some of the techniques commonly applied by professionals to achieve this are:
Light Colors: Light colors give the residents of the house a calming and spacious feeling. Cream colors and or cerulean blue colors are some of the colors that are recommended to be used to give such an illusion and feeling. Add natural light to it which reflects the light colors throughout the interior of the room and you have the best recipe for an effect of having a big room.
Complement: Use colors that will complement the furniture in your home. If you have a lot of brownish furniture then use paint that will complement this color and at the same time, a color that is light to the eyes. Doing so will have an optical effect that makes the furniture blend along with the walls giving you and people in the room the feeling that the size of the furniture and the space they occupy not that big.
Painting: Paint a horizontal stripe around the room because by painting this kind of detail can potentially make a room appear bigger than it actually is. Another technique is also to extend your wall to the ceiling of your room or home by extending the paint on the wall to the ceiling. Keep it mind though that you have to refrain from painting the whole ceiling because it will have the opposite effect. Painting borders with the same color also works and gives an impression that the walls are taller than they really are.
