Funcolors-can I ask you a paint question?

12 years ago

In your experience, does a dark color tend to really shrink a room or is this a myth? I have my family room which is about 14 1/2 ft. X 20 ft. And am considering painting it a barn red color. Currently I have the barn red color on an accent wall. The other walls are painted guesthouse by bm and looks off against my deep caramel/ walnut colored sofa. I really like deep warm colors but wonder if it will make the room appear smaller. I appreciate your help with this.
