Making the most of your space

Cleverly using paint can help make the most of small or cramped spaces in your home.

For starters a simple and well known rule is to use light and more neutral colours to add the illusion of space. Key neutral colours from Crown’s latest emulsion colours such as Clay White and Grey Putty work really well together in a small space and help make the most of natural light as you can see below.

A key tip is to use paint to draw the eye upwards, as this will automatically make the room feel larger. This can be done in a number of ways; by only painting your wall colour 3 quarters of the way up the wall then starting on the ceiling colour it will draw the eye upwards, making the ceiling appear higher and the room larger you can see this done here using Cloud Burst and Botanical Extract.

Another way to draw the eye upwards is to incorporate a small and simple pattern into the top section of the room where the wall meets the ceiling. The pattern will blend the sections together and trick the eye into thinking the walls go on for much longer than they actually do, you can see this done here with Slate Grey  and a simple chevron pattern.
