    Hi,

    We stay in a rented apartment here. One of the walls in the living and bed rooms has been painted with a different color a darker shade - say brown, while the rest are white. I always wondered why this kind of painting :confused:

    The recently I got to read in a magazine few tips about home decoration. It was mentioned painting one of the walls with a different darker color will make even tiny rooms to look bigger.

    now a days we do like this in our country also. all the major paint dealers
    provide us with the most perfect and beautiful combinations of colours.
    rooms of children can be made more attractive too.i have tried contrasting combinations in the rooms of my daughters and it worked well:)

    regards..........

    Never knew about this actually! Nevertheless its always good to know things like these. Soon we are also going to move into a new apartment and I will try and experiment with what you said. Looks like this is something thats required to be seen to be believed, else it does not make easy understanding why a darker color would make a room look bigger.

    Good information. I always used to think why this concept of painting 3 walls in 1 colour and one wall in a darker shade..
    thanx..

    Using mirrors on one wall or cupboards also seems to make the room seem bigger.
    Another idea is if you have a good 3D Painter they paint a 3D picture of may be a landscape or pillars etc and it gives the room a bigger look.
