Best Paint Colors for Small Rooms Guide 2022

Content Table

    Small spaces can leave us stumped, desperately hunting for ways to make the room look larger and more welcoming. While some people swear that the best wall color for small spaces is a light, bright, and often white shade, others promise that a deeper, darker shade will add just the dose of depth your room needs.

    Whether you want to go deep and dark, or light and bright, you can’t go wrong. That being said, we know there are endless amounts of colors to choose from, so our home painting experts at Oahu Pro Painters gathered the best colors for small rooms that are sure to make your space feel larger and more inviting to perfectly refresh your tiny space.

    Dark Blue

    Many believe that the best paint color for small spaces is bright and light, but a dark blue can give your small space a fun pop to differentiate from the rest of the house. For this color choice, we recommend Behr in “Restless Sea” - the perfect deep blue for your small space. This is a great choice for a living room, providing a dose of rich color. If you’re not ready to paint the entire room a dark color, dark blue is also one of the best accent wall colors for small spaces, so you can take a risk on just one wall and paint the rest a more subtle, light color.

    Off White

    A key way to make a small space feel bigger and brighter is with a light shade. Off white is one of the best colors for small rooms - whether it be a living room, bedroom, or small office. One of our favorite off white shades is Sherwin Williams “Arcade White” as this white hue has a bit of warmth to avoid that super white finish.

    Bright Yellow

    Want to make your space feel instantly happier? Go with bright yellow. A yellow shade is not just one of the best colors for small apartments but also makes for a great pop of color for cabinets in a small kitchen or as an accent wall. For this paint color, we recommend Sherwin Williams “Venetian Yellow” for just the right yellow hint that is bright, without overwhelming your small space.

    Muted Purple

    Whether you’re updating the paint of a small powder room or looking to totally redo your small bedroom, a muted purple is a fun twist everyone will love. Purple can be risky, but a more muted version of this bold berry hue is just what a small space needs. A muted purple adds a sophisticated twist on the classic purple shade, and we love Sherwin Williams “Berry Frappe” to achieve this look - it’s one of the best interior colors for a small house that no one saw coming.
