Designer suggestions to paint a small bedroom

Small bedrooms can feel cozy and comfortable when they are decorated with its size in mind. To help a small bedroom to look brighter, use lighter and cooler colors with glitter, and choose decorations, bedding and furniture with little contrast. Make sure the furniture scale correctly with the room, opting for smaller furniture and choose only the needed one.


Cool colors visually recede, while warm colors advance. To the eye, where a wall looks back, looks away, therefore, the room looks bigger. Cool colors reflect light, while warm colors absorb it. Use these tricks, using cool colors on the walls to bounce the light around, such as blue, green or cool white. Avoid warm colors like red, orange or yellow to make the walls seem farther and bigger room.


Lighter and less saturated colors reflect natural light, and the more light bounces around the room, brighter and bigger sounds. If you choose a dark color like deep red or dark brown, light is absorbed by the paint colors, which makes it look like the walls recede.


Do not forget the ceiling when you’re thinking about the color of the paint. Lighter colors make the ceiling paint brighter and seem to be farther and higher, while dark colors make the ceiling feel closer and can make you feel a little claustrophobic. Choose white, cream or light blue aerated for your roof to help make the room appear larger.


Consider to choose gloss paint. Most indoor paints are available in a variety of highlights, from flat to high. High gloss paints help bounce light around the room, while the flat paint makes the walls look less bright. However, flat paint hidden the walls defects, so if your room is with imperfect walls, choose a brightness level. Many of the bedrooms are painted with an eggshell finish, so if the walls are in relatively good condition, choose a semi-gloss or satin.
