What wall paint colors should I use to make a room look brighter?

Choosing wall paint colors to make a room look brighter is a very easy task. To make the room appear brighter , choose white or a variation of white. White and light colors reflect light, giving a bright feeling. A very pale pastel color will also make a room feel brighter, since it registers with the eye just as white does. If a room is large and has windows, any bright color, such as yellow or orange, will also brighten a room. Paint the ceiling a shade lighter than walls, to make the room appear brighter.
