Effect of wall colors in blue

Blue-gray, pigeon blue, dark blue or light blue? Discover the diversity of the wall color blue! If you want to paint your own four walls blue, you have a large selection. In addition, blue is a timeless classic among wall colors. Rooms that are painted in one or more shades of blue have a calming effect on the atmosphere in the room and on your mood. They create a feeling of pleasant coolness and freshness, but without appearing cold. The effect can be very different depending on the shade.

The light tones of the color blue give a feeling of space, as they are reminiscent of the blue of the sky and can be easily painted over large areas. Smaller rooms in particular benefit from this. These are opened optically by a light blue and appear larger. You can intensify this effect by, for example, leaving a slightly wider edge to the ceiling white and painting the ceiling white as well. Conversely, you can optically reduce rooms with high ceilings by only painting the ceiling a dark blue, but leaving the walls light.
