The Best Paint Colors for Dark Rooms

Post by: McKenzie on Jul 22nd 2019

Many people have dreams of an airy white fantasy to brighten up their dark room, but in reality, it might not be the best choice. Rooms that get little to no natural light (whether because they face north or they have no windows to let sunlight in) can easily come off as cramped and dreary with a dark color on the walls adding to the space’s lack of light. And while painting the room a bright white seems like an easy solution, a picture-perfect white room probably isn’t possible in a naturally dim room. White is bright when it has natural light to reflect. When it only has artificial light to work with, it will end up looking flat and darkened... likely the opposite effect of what you’re going for. But don’t be disappointed; there are plenty of beautiful shades that will help your space look bigger and brighter. Here are a few of the best paint colors for dark rooms, brought to you by our interior painting professionals.
