If your home has a formal entry, choose a color color that is one to two shades darker than the next room. A darker color in the entryway can make the room feel inviting, like a warm hug.
If your home has an open floor plan, without a defined entry area, use paint to create one. Try a bold paint on the wall around the front door and an adjacent wall as visual boundaries for input.

How to choose a color for the small bathroom? Look around your house for patches of color, the crop up in your art or curtains. For example, a living room, mostly in beige with blue accent pieces to coordinate as well as with a bathroom painted the same shade of blue.
The dark colors have also been trend analysis with homeowners I’ve been working with lately. Offset the dark nature of the color that we normally recommend, the other design details, such as the floors and sink, light, make sure that the room still feels open and bright.
Worried a color will overwhelm you the small space? Consider installing a chair rail as a natural divider. Then paint the lower part of the wall in a statement color, with the wall surface over a neutral tone.

3. Bookshelf. Whether you are installing the shelves in your home or freestanding, you can easily create style with the color. Remove the shelves from the surround and paint the back wall of the case. Do not be afraid to go boldly with your paint, because if the shelves and the items on the shelves are in your color choice seem more subtle. They become an instant pop of color without being in your face.
With a large walk-in closet, consider using a color that complements the attached rooms.
For shelves, use an oil-based paint for long life from scratches and abrasion.

5th hallway. Corridors are usually long and narrow and depending on the lighting can also be dark. When choosing a color color for the hallway, look at the colors in connecting rooms and then get one or two shades lighter. The colors complement each other and coordinate the home in the overall picture. Plus, a slight shade brighten the passage.

If the space is limited, I always encourage owners to go fat and use colors, offset the space of the functions. For example, in a kitchen with white cabinets and natural stone countertops, choose a hunter green or dark blue. In large quantities, these dark shades can make the feeling overwhelming, but in small quantities, they give the room a strong dimension.
