Colors have special meanings and some colors may be best for one occasion but can be tacky or inappropriate for another event. Even in simple tasks such as signing your name, most people will not use a red pen for their signature. So for special events like weddings or birthdays, your choice of wedding colors or birthday colors should be appropriate. The color black may be best for a formal business occasion, but that color is considered inappropriate for a joyful celebration such as a wedding or a birthday.

For rooms, especially if you have a small room, you can create the appearance of a larger space also with the use of the right color. There are indeed colors that can make your room feel even smaller, but there are colors as well that can make your room appear bigger.

The use of light colors, pastel colors, or natural hues is best for small rooms. Light colors such as light blue, soft yellow, or light green can make your room appear bigger than it really is. This is because these colors are naturally associated with nature, and when people think of nature, they first and foremost think about wide open space, and the same illusion happens to your room. Light colors will open up you space and a white ceiling can improve the visual height of your room. Same with the concept of opening up the room, a white ceiling can make your ceiling appear that it is farther than it really is.

Monochrome is also suggested because the use of two or more colors in your room can make the walls look small. They can see the exact size of each area (because of the division) and it lets them see the real size of your room.

For a flowing look, use the same shade as that of the walls if you are to paint your floors as well. This can make your room feel as one and the division or partitions between them will be invisible. What will be obvious is that there is only one color present and the lightness of this color creates an illusion of more space.

The use of the right color can make you achieve great results without having to tear down your bedroom wall. This is a great way to make your room bigger and at the same time the pastel, light, or natural tones can make you feel relaxed inside your own bedroom.
