Best Living Room Colors For Small Rooms

Darryl Carter isn’t opposed to a dark hue in a small space, but it depends on which room you’re painting. “If it’s a library or personal space, a dark color can create a wonderfully inviting sanctuary,” the designer says. In this living space, though, Carter opted for a lighter shade: Benjamin Moore’s Huntington White in a flat finish. Glossy, almost-black doors in Darryl Carter Colors by Benjamin Moore Marbury Brown punctuate the space. Remember, Carter adds, no matter which colors you choose, plan your colors based on how rooms lead into one another, not separately. “There should be cohesion between rooms that give way or are open to one another,” he says.

The right paint color can accomplish a lot — it can flatter everyone in the room, help bring good energy to a space, and even keep you from getting sick. And luckily for small space dwellers, a well-chosen wall hue can also make a room feel much bigger than it is. (Yes, you can paint small rooms colors other than white.)

Forget the old adage that small rooms need to be painted a light color. When you paint a small room a really dark color, the corners seem to disappear, so you can’t see the boundaries of the space anymore. Plus, dark rooms can be really cozy. And at the end of the day, is it more important that a space feel big or feel inviting?

“Contrary to popular belief, light colors do not make teeny rooms feel spacious,” says Jessica Geller, co-principal, ID 810 Design Group in New York, NY. “Instead, embrace the small square footage and go for deep that create intimate and cozy cocoonlike rooms.”

I agree completely with SuperJdynamite — a low platform-style bed is a great way to make the room feel larger. I have a TINY urban “studiette” apartment. (“Studio” sounds deceivingly large, with that big “O” sound at the end.) By using a platform bed, modern furniture with low, clean lines, and short, exposed legs (i.e. open underneath — no dust ruffle), the apt feels much larger than it is. Guests frequently compliment me on how comfortable the apt is, especially given its size.As always, lighting was *extremely* important in making the room seem larger. Dark corners make a room look smaller, as does a brightly-lit ceiling, or a single central down-light (think interrogation chamber!). Instead, I used ambient light in the corners to eliminate the shadows (one lamp is sculptural, the other was a ’60s-mod child’s tracing table that works perfectly as a nightstand), and then bright, directed halogen task lighting pointing down above the desk, behind the TV, and softened reading lights above the bed. I also have uplights on a fabric screen (see below).A nice way to create space, without making the room look busy, are the seemingly supportless shelves from Ikea, called “Lack”. They use a steel bracket that is bolted to the wall, then a lightweight wood cover slides on. Following Ikea’s lead, the halogen downlights I mentioned above are affixed underneath, which eliminates the shelf’s shadow, making it seem to float, and really opening up the space underneath.Also key for studio living was deciding upon key living functions, like “sleep”, “work/study”, “entertain/eat” (I faced the fact that, for me, a dining table would just collect junk — I eat in front of the TV anyway), and carefully planning those as focal areas so that when spending time on each, I feel like I’m in a separate space. The spaces face away from each other, and I hung a very straight, clean-lined, sheer fabric blind between the sleep space and the entertain space. You can see through the fabric, but it divides the room mentally without dividing it visually. In the evening, I can uplight the fabric, which gives a dramatic look, plus somewhat masks the bed from my guests view by making the fabric seem more opaque.

Light colors and neutrals are always a classic option for small spaces, but that doesn’t mean you have to forgo bold colors when you want to make a room seem bigger. Just take a cue from designer Anne Miller of Miller House Interiors in Charlotte, NC, and pick softer tones for your accessories and furnishings. “I love a saturated paint color and encourage clients not to be scared of using one,” she says. “The key is to remember to balance out that color with softer neutrals so that the room is not overwhelming.”

It is a generally known fact that light colors make a room look bigger and brighter. Light and bright walls are more reflective, making a space feel open and airy, which helps maximize the effect created by natural light. Dark colors, on the other hand, tend to absorb light, making a room look smaller.

“Skylight is also an amazing color; a clean, light gray-blue,” adds Juneja. “On a whole, cool colors are fresher and brighter than warm. Warm colors evoke intimacy and softness. Cool colors make me think of bright days and breezes and a sharpness that you can only capture with blues and greens.”

Just as different wall colors can divide your apartment into different work areas, different shades of the same color can unite all the rooms, as can a pattern that’s repeated. “In a small space, in particular, these little touches — the pillow that matches the lampshade fabric, the style of the mirror that echoes a side table — can all add up to a cohesive space,” McCauley says.

When decorating a small room, create a focal point — one area or feature that will draw the eye. In the dining room, this will probably be the table. In the bedroom, it will most likely be the bed. Make that focal point the star of the room. Arrange the furniture so that focus is drawn to that area, and keep the décor in the rest of the room to a minimum (limit the number of accessories).

Whatever colors you choose for your small space, add one object that is black, says designer McCauley. “The black item — say, in a torchere lamp or a frame — will help ground the space and clarify the other colors. Try it, it works!”

For an optimum effect, select soft tones of off-white, blue and green, and always remember that brighter rooms look bigger and more inviting. Try painting your wall trim and moldings in a lighter color than your walls. By doing so, the walls will appear farther back, making your living room seem bigger.

One of the best ways to expand a space is with very clear colors, says designer Mark McCauley, ASID, author of Interior Design for Idiots. “Choose a palette of sharper colors as opposed to duller ones. Sharp as in bright chintzes mixed with colorful plaids or really hot reds and electric blues, yellows and greens (with plenty of air between the pieces). Color combinations with negative space in between will enhance the space’s clarity and openness.”

“Paint ceilings white and use lighter colors to make a room appear larger,” suggests Dan Schaeffer, owner of Five Star Painting in Austin, TX. “Think light grays, blues, and other neutral colors. You can also use an eggshell or satin finish to help reflect light.”
