Using Colour in Small Spaces

Small spaces can be tricky to style, especially when it comes to colour. We’ve compiled a list of top tips for working with colour in limited space to get you started and on your way to a bold and beautiful home.


Experiment With Colour

Before you commit to a bold colour scheme, always do some experimenting. Colour tester pots are a great way to sample bold hues before you go all in. Test out your chosen colour on a 1 by 2 m wall space to give yourself a fair idea of how it will look in your space.

Connect Spaces With Shades of Colour

Where contrasting colours have the power to divide up different areas in your home; similar shades can bring them together and give your home one cohesive look. Picking a statement colour for your entire home can be a stunning and daring look that is easy to achieve, simply focus your choice of accessories and furnishings to one particular colour palate and you’re on your way to a brilliantly bold look!











Add Colour That Travels

If you don’t want to go all out with painting your walls, another great way to dress you rooms in colour is to opt for colourful accessories. Large, bright canvases, wall hangings and statement furniture pieces are perfect for adding pops of colour without overdoing it; this option is also perfect for renters who are unable to make more permanent changes to their residences.


Create a Focal Wall

While some interiors experts argue that feature walls are dated, they are the perfect option for smaller spaces. Painting one wall a darker colour than the rest of the room can create the illusion of more space, so don’t be afraid of deep, bold tones.
