A Few More on Bedroom Wall Accents
Warm Colors Make A Small Appear Smaller
Warm colors such as orange and yellow normally pull the wall towards the eye. This makes the space look smaller. What does this mean?
If you’re looking to use any warm color on your bedroom accent wall, consider choosing a wall that can survive being foreshortened. For instance, you can paint the end wall of a long, narrow bedroom to make the space feel more balanced.
Cool Colors Create an Illusion of Space
By pulling the wall from the eye, cool colors such as green and blue makes a small space look bigger. You can use a cool color on a side wall in your bedroom. This will make the room look bigger. Likewise, by painting a low ceiling a cool color, it will appear higher than it actually is.
Choose a Wall the Stands Out
A wall that stands out in your bedroom will make the best accent wall. It’s the wall that greets your eye when you enter the room. This should be a wall at the head of the bed.
That doesn’t mean that you can’t use a different wall. You can always find another wall that stands out. You can ask someone to walk into the room and help you identify the wall that seems to catch their eye.
