One of the ways to change the visual aspect of your living room is to work with the paint on the walls. This technique is the most common because it has a much lower cost and is more practical than changing the furniture or doing a complete renovation. The biggest question is: what color should be used on the wall and which color should be painted, maintaining harmony with the existing decoration.
Before leaving to paint your room, it is good to observe the environment by analyzing the tone of the furniture, position of the walls, its extension and what point you want to highlight. Remember that each color conveys a sensation and creates a different look.
Light colors such as yellow, beige, split and gray always give the impression of breadth. One of the advantages of light tones is that they match easily with other colors. In addition, they are great for composing with decorative objects of vibrant colors such as: cushions, rugs, lamps and curtains.
For a rectangular living room, choose to paint the smaller wall with darker shades. This creates a shortening effect on the environment. Therefore, two strong color tones should be used with care, the vibrant colors end up making the environment uncomfortable. Already for square environments the ideal is to stretch - it is advisable to paint two opposing walls with darker shades.
