I have a very long room, 15×50, with hardwood floors. The room comes off the kitchen where the dining room is and then the living room. It is, essentially, one open room. We want to repaint, (only the dining/living room) but I am having trouble deciding on colors! I am thinking the long walls a cream color and a dark color on the end wall….or should it be a bright color? Right now it is a very dark brown on the end wall and the long walls are kind-of a light mud color~yuck! Any suggestions?!
I would suggest a medium tone color on the long walls, and a light tone on the end walls. If you were to use a darker color it would make the room seem smaller. Try to pick a paint color that will complement your hardwood floors, as those are not changeable!
