Light & White Coloured Paint
Colour can make all the difference to a room. It can create shadows making a room look like a cramped box or it can create a mirror effect, opening up a room to appear bigger. Dark colours enhance shadows, thus often making a room appear smaller than it is. Whites and other light, pale colours are great to use to brighten up any room of your granny flat.
Try and keep the paintwork simple. Adding too many colours or by adding bold colours can limit your creativity when it comes to furniture and decor. Having 1-2 main colours such as, white, cream or pale yellow allows you to add brightness with easier and changeable methods. Furniture and decor is easy to swap and change to suit different styles when you want to re-decorate, instead of having to repaint an entire room or feature wall.
Mirrors, like light coloured paints, also help give the illusion of space. When large mirrors are placed in small corners or on blank walls, it can magnify the effects of light and make the room appear bigger and brighter. This is excellent to bring a little bit of sunshine indoors.
Mirrors can come in all shapes, styles and sizes so you can be sure to find the right mirror to suit any room.
