Many people decide against using dark paint colors in their home year after year for fear that it won’t look right. On the contrary — dark colors can add a dramatic emphasis to any room that immediately increases interior appeal.

At Nolan Painting, it’s important to us that you’re happy with the paint job on the inside and outside of your home, so we offer a list of tips for painting with dark colors and information about our company so you can make the right home improvement decision.

Tips for Painting With Dark Colors

The following are four of the top tips we would give any homeowner thinking of using dark colors on their walls:

  1. Keep design in mind before painting with dark colors. Make sure the furniture you plan to have in the room will match the color and overall room theme.
  2. Don’t worry about a color making the room look smaller. Done right, dark to medium shades can actually make rooms seem larger, so don’t let size keep you from the interior you want.
  3. Apply accents throughout the space to add dimension once the walls are dark.
  4. Make sure a quality professional company like Nolan Painting is applying your dark paint colors. Poorly painted walls, especially when the color is bold, are immediately noticeable and take away from the rest of your home.
