Relying on Just Tiny Paint Swatches
Always test out the paint directly on the wall and do not rely on just a tiny paint swatch. The texture of the wall, the way natural light hits or doesn’t hit the wall, and the type of lighting in the space, all should be factored in when deciding the paint color.
Only White Walls for Small Rooms
Many people think that the easiest solution to making a small room appear bigger is to paint the walls white. It might be true in some cases, but you have to consider the natural light and the other types of lighting that will be in the space, because a small white room can easily look boring, dirty, and depressing.
