In addition to shades of cream and eggshell, colors found in nature can also help to open up a sunny room. If you have a view of water or expansive blue skies, shades of that color work well on the walls. Shades of green are lovely if you have palm trees and other types of trees outside of the windows. Consider using cool toned shades of very light green and blue. In addition to making a room feel larger, these paint colors make the room look airy. If you would still like to open up a small room but want to make it a bit more cozy, consider using light shades of warm colors, such as light gold.
Another option is to paint the ceiling in a light color. High-gloss white gloss will make the light bounce off of the ceiling. No matter the color of the rest of the room, painting the ceiling in a lighter color can also make the room look larger.
Painting stripes on the wall can also make a room look larger. This idea works best in a bedroom or bathroom. Just as a horizontal striped shirt can make you look wider and a shirt with horizontal strips make you look taller, stripes have that same effect on the walls. For best results use shades of taupe, cream and white. If you are painting stripes on the walls, do not paint them on the ceiling.
