In pretty much every home, there is a dark space that doesn’t allow for much natural light. You might think just painting that area the brightest white is your best option, but our house painters in Phoenix, Buckeye, and Litchfield Park, have some other great ideas for you.
The reason bright white is so bright, is because it reflects natural light so well. Therefore, if there’s not enough natural light in a space, then that bright white is wasted. Sometimes, instead of opening up the area, white could actually make it seem darker. One general thing our house painters in Phoenix, Buckeye and Litchfield Park will recommend is: if you have to turn a light on in the room during the day, then white is simply not your best option.
Some of the best options for the dark spaces of your home in Phoenix, Buckeye, or Litchfield Park are warm toned- neutral colors. Our house painters suggest these are the best options to help brighten and make a space feel bigger.
You will need to choose a color that is more saturated, since there is little to no natural light for the color to reflect. And our house painters in Phoenix, Buckeye and Litchfield Park will remind you that light colors aren’t necessarily a must, but what you should focus on are bright colors.
Remember that the type of space our house painters in Phoenix, Buckeye and Litchfield Park are going to paint for you, will also affect your color choice. Bathrooms with no windows will allow for much bolder colors than a that dark hallway you’d like to make seem a bit less narrow.
Here are some favorite colors our house painters in Phoenix, Buckeye, and Litchfield Park like to use for dark rooms:
It’s warm tones add brightness to dark areas. There are many shades, so finding the perfect one that suits you best is easy.
