A color expert's guide to painting small spaces

So, you have a room in your house that seems too small to improve. A walk-in closet, a storeroom, even the garage, some places just feel like a total design chore. Sure, we get it, but we wouldn’t be here if we agreed with you.

A lick of paint is all it takes to make the most out of what you’ve got. When that space is small, it is important to use color wisely to make the most of it. Rule number one: if there is natural light, then you better use it. We all know that painting a small space in a light color makes it appear larger, but you don’t have to commit yourself to a bland palette. If you have natural light, you can make a space pop, but don’t push it too far.

Finding the right shade for that room in your house can be transformative. Especially when it comes to painting your bathroom, remember that your bathroom is your sanctuary. It is the place where you will spend time just for yourself. So, choose something that feels like you.
