Using Paint to Enhance the Size of your rooms

by Lynn Ganster, PA 09/11/2018

Paint colors can drastically affect the feeling of a room. It can make it enjoyable to be in, or leave you feeling uncomfortable. It can alter the perception of the room's shape and size and add to, or take away from, the atmosphere you're trying to portray in your space. The paint you use in your house can make or break its aesthetics.

COLOR TIPS

Dark Colors:
~ Add coziness to a room.
~ Used to make a large room feel smaller.
~ Advance the color in the room.

Light Colors:
~ Used to make small rooms feel bigger.
~ Recedes the color in a room.
~ Light colors help a space feel more airy.

Lighter colors tend to recede, which makes it appear farther away, therefore making the room feel bigger. Darker colors tend to advance, which makes them seem closer, in turn making the room feel smaller. You can use colors to completely modify the size of a room by perception. You can use this concept to minimize unattractive features in your house or highlight focal points.

If your room is too large and doesn't make the space feel cozy, you can paint your ceiling a darker color than the walls, to help them feel a little lower. Conversely, if your ceilings are too low and makes you feel claustrophibic, you can paint them a lighter shade to help them feel higher.  

 

About the Author

It all began when I was 18 years old and my soon to be husband and I were searching for our first home. I loved the idea that I could be part of someones life experience but I had a life to live before acting on that idea! I never knew much about the industry, but after seeing the process firsthand of a difficult transaction my husband and I were involved in and how important each part of the ordeal was for both my husband, myself, and the owner, I knew it was something that I wanted to be a part of. Of course, I didn’t pursue real estate until I was finally able to dive in back in 2004, but it’s been a passion for as long as I can remember.

I can sit here and tell you that I have strong negotiating skills, local market knowledge, and so forth – and of course, I do – but one thing I want to share with you, the thing that is the most important tool I can provide you in your home sale or purchase is my passion. I didn’t get into the industry to make money. I got into the industry because I fell in love with it. I fell in love with homes, the character each one had, and the beautiful people I got to help transition from one home to another. I fell in love with hearing people's stories, really getting to know their needs for their futures, and focusing on ensuring that they found a home that actually met those future goals.

Real estate can be a stressful thing, moving out of a home you’ve known for years can be hard, and it can be harder if you don’t have someone to partner with who doesn’t take the time to understand that. My business goes beyond the professionalism I can bring to the table, my years of knowledge about our local market and communities, and past the number of sales I’ve made thus far. Instead, it prioritizes you. How much can you afford? What motivates your move? What do you HAVE to have to make this big transition in your life?

You need a real estate agent who understands that, and seeks to know the answer to those questions, and all of the other important ones that make buying and selling a reality for you. Let’s grab coffee or lunch, on me, and we’ll talk about your real estate goals. I’ll get to know your needs, I’ll share the amazing experience I can provide, and we’ll make sure your next move is in the right direction. You need more than a computer to find your dream home, you need a professional partner who has your best interest at heart from the moment you call to even after we close. I’m doing more than just selling houses in Florida, I’m helping you bring your dream home to life.
