Use wall paint to create balanced interior spaces and to compensate for deficiencies. 


"Color" has long been regarded as one of the most potent tools in the art of interior design and house decoration, capable of transforming a room into an immersive environment. Color is one of the most effective methods to improve a space that has many flaws. Here are some typical problems that you can solve by using color creatively on both the walls and the ceiling.

Problem 1: the ceiling is too low.
Solution: Low ceilings can make a place feel claustrophobic. To assist with this issue, paint the ceiling a lighter color than the walls. This will almost definitely give the impression of height. Another excellent trick is to paint vertical stripes on the wall or to use striped wallpaper.

Problem 2: The ceiling is too high, and the room is cold.
Solution: For the roof, choose a color that is darker than the color of the walls. Another option is to add horizontal bands to the walls. Another trick is to paint the lower two-thirds of the walls a darker color and the top third a lighter color.

Problem 3: How to paint the walls on a narrow corridor?
Solution: To make a corridor more vibrant and modern, paint the walls with deep red, glowing blue or lustrous chocolate. For added effect, use vertical stripes of the same color on both walls.

Problem 4: There are no windows in the room. The rooms seems to dark and unpleasant.
Solution: If a room doesn't have any windows, it needs good lighting and a view. You can substitute for natural light by painting the walls, such as light yellow, bright orange and ochre. A yellow color palette can subconsciously remind people of a sunny day. If you have little outside lighting, you could either put up large paintings or hang a big mirror in an exposed spot. Apart from looking like real windows, mirrors also reflect and amplify the light from the sun so that your space is brightened up considerably.

Problem 5: The room doesn't have anything special, and it seems quite boring.
Solution: This is a great opportunity to choose a modern, vivid and "exotic" color such as tropical blue, glowing red or deep chocolate. While you can paint many things with this color, it's important to keep in mind that these colors will clash if you apply them on the walls excessively. So just pick one wall to paint with this color. Otherwise the overall result could be overwhelming.


Problem 6: the sun light that enters through the windows is very intense.
Solution: Paint the walls and the ceiling with light cool tones such as light blue or pastel colors. The room will feel fresher and more cool.

Problem 7: It seems like the space is divided, without a clear connection between individual objects.
Solution: If your space is feeling unconnected, the best choice is to paint all surfaces with the same color. You can also highlight a particular wall by painting it with a darker tone. Add also a decorative element, such as a vase or a pendant with a high-contrast color.
