Paint colors can drastically affect the feeling of a room. It can make it enjoyable to be in, or leave you feeling uncomfortable. It can alter the perception of the room's shape and size and add to (or take away from) the atmosphere you're trying to portray in your space. The paint you use in your house can really modify its aesthetics. 

Dark Colors:
+ Add coziness to a room
+ Used to make a large room feel smaller
+ Advance the color in the room

Light Colors:
+ Used to make small rooms feel bigger
+ Recedes the color in a room
+ Help a space feel more airy

Lighter colors tend to recede - making the room feel bigger. Darker colors tend to advance, which makes them seem closer, in turn making the room feel smaller. You can use colors to completely modify the size of a room by perception. This concept can be used to minimize unattractive features in your house or highlight focal points. 

If you want to make a large space feel cozier, you can paint the ceiling a darker color than the walls, to help them feel a little lower. Conversely, if the ceilings are too low, making you feel claustrophobic, you can paint them a lighter shade to help them feel higher.
