Painting a small room a dark color and I have a lot of trim and doors which will be painted light.

Irene asked 4 years ago

I am not sure how it will look if I paint a small room a dark color when one wall has three doors -the entry door plus two closet. The trim and doors I plan to paint a cream color. There is a small section which will be painted the dark color. I was wondering if we should paint the whole wall cream?

The trim and doors will be the main dominate color while the walls will be the accent. You don't mention the ceiling; this could be painted the same wall color. With the ceiling painted the dark color the room should look good with well defined trim and doors.

My concern for a small room painted dark colours is always the size. The darker the colour the smaller the room will seem. I disagree strongly with the suggestion to paint the ceiling dark as well since that will make the room appear even smaller. If you do continue down the path of dark I do agree that the one wall with three doors will be accented quite nicely with a darker wall colour. The final decision is yours, so paint to your taste. Good luck.
