There are plenty of ways to use colour that makes a small room feel larger and brighter. Cool colours can make a room recede and spacious. It is recommended to paint all walls in the same light colour but keep floors a dark colour resulting in your floor feeling longer or larger.
In addition, consider painting trims and doors in a quarter or half strength. This will make the room feel larger as the colours blend together.
Paint low ceilings in a lighter shade than the walls or alternately paint mouldings in a darker shade than the ceiling. Painting the ceiling in the lightest shade and use the deepest tone of colour near the floor will result in the feeling of more space.
Other factors that can make a small room appear bigger are how you use lighting and the size and colour your furniture.
Using a similar wall colour as the furniture colour will make the room feel large. Other ways to make a room feel larger is using a glass coffee table in your lounge room or using a mirror. Using a mirror will create a greater sense of openness and reflect light.
Natural daylight shows colours at their best, but this varies pending on the time of day. Natural light will make the room feel larger especially if you have access to large doors or windows that open to the outdoor area. In addition, I suggest choosing a warm colour for a north facing room that feels cold or a cool colour to soften the strong sunlight in a room.
