White colour has a mysterious effect on the room, making it appear as if bigger than its actual size. However, everyone will not be comfortable with white colour as it casts a dull appearance. So go for other light and bright colours like bright pink shade, sea green, peach, lavender, blue, etc. Beyond this, special techniques are to be employed while using light colours for small rooms:
- Use only one colour for one room. Don’t embed the room with many colours.
- The accessories and furniture used in small rooms should be complimenting to the colour used in the walls, which will give it a big appearance. Using contrasting colours for the accessories and furniture of the room will give it a small appearance

- Lighting has a significant role to play in making the room look bigger. Using artificial lighting in important places in the room make the room appear bigger.
- Using mirrors, which reflects light, which is artificially designed into the room make it bigger in size. A long mirror in a horizontal direction, if attached to the wall of a small room will make the room appear bigger in size.
