The image in this post is there to make a point. Yes I know this post is about bathroom remodeling and that is a picture of a dining room, but it makes the point well.
How do you feel when you leisurely watch a sunset? I can guarantee you part of how you feel is “spacious” because by definition you’re looking far into the horizon.
What is the color scheme of a sunset? Red/orange/yellow.
When you paint your walls in those colors, you mimic that look which helps to mimic that feeling.
Another color scheme that helps is the colors of standing outside in a meadow. Dark flooring (brown), light blue walls, and a white ceiling.
Another “trick” you can use is the use of stripes, which is nothing more than lines of different colors. If your room is especially long or wide and you wish to accentuate the shorter dimension, run stripes in the direction of the shorter dimension. This fools us into believing the length of that shorter dimension is longer than it really is.
