NYKB: Wall Color Ideas

Narielle Living
A crisp, updated room will not only look better but can increase the value of your home. Instead of white, consider various color ideas for your bathroom walls for your next renovation. Whether bold or subtle, you can make the room look great and coordinate your colors with the rest of the home.

NYKB Small Spaces
Neutral colors work best in small spaces.

If your space is small, the best approach is the simple approach. Natural, earth tones or subtle colors on the wall will lighten the space and make it feel more open. Khaki, sage, celery, dove gray, pale blue, light peach or faint pink will work nicely. Woodwork and molding paint can be a complementary shade that is a slightly lighter color. Remember to keep accessories to a minimum and try to maintain consistency with your colors.

NYKB Large Spaces
With a larger space it is easier to be more daring in your color choice.

Deeper hues such as burgundy, forest green, navy blue or even sharp orange are colors you can try. Consider using two different wall colors to make the space more interesting. You might have three of your walls painted sage, with the accent wall painted dark green. Or, if you want to break the monotony of the walls, you can paint the upper half sage and the lower half dark green, or whatever you choose for a color combination.

The best way to choose a color for your space is to bring paint chips home from the store and look at them in your space. The light in that room is probably different from the light in the rest of your house, so you will need to see exactly how a particular shade will look before making a decision. Another way to try a new color is to buy a sample of the color and put it on the wall. This will help you to see how this color works in your room and whether or not you can live with it. Paint samples usually only cost a few dollars and will save you time and money in the long run. Its fun to experiment with these samples and it will help you feel more confident about your choice.
