Complimentary colors to expand your space


Miracles can happen with paint. Color that’s been carefully chosen can create the feeling of extra space in a small apartment. And we’re not just talking about walls - painting the floor and ceilings with different shades can truly create the feeling of a room within a room.

“I really like mixing strong highlights in the furniture and accessories. It always works well with softer wall shades.”

IKEA Ideas - Complimentary colors to expand your space

For this room, Agnes mixed together the two shades that cover walls, ceiling and floor. We really like how this not only gives you the feel of a bigger space, but frees you to be creative with other colours among your furniture and accessories. Even the bird on the left can’t help but feel the awesomeness.

“Creating borders with colours is such a simple concept! I think it’s something we should definitely use more.”
