What is the best paint color for a dark basement?


Answer by  mangosteen (272)

Use anything light, even white. In addition try adding a bunch of mirrors to lighten the room even more. A basement without or with few windows needs as much help as possible to be bright. Use a lot of compact fluorescent bulbs too, to make it light.

You really need to use a light color of paint for doing a dark basement. A light color will most certainly aide in increasing the relative brightness of the basement.

I think salmon pink is kind nice, and giving warmth in a room. But green is good and bright too. How about clean lime green and saturated yellow? It can be used as stripes.

The best paint color for a dark basement is white, or any other light color. Light colors often open up a dark room and make it bigger and brighter. I would suggest a light color.
