If you are afraid whether you will find it interesting or not on the wall, you may try it first on your laundry room. If you think that a certain neutral color is not great, you may pick the lighter or darker shades. Don’t forget to paint the ceiling with the basic color. If you want to play safe, I suggest you to pick the lighter shade for the ceiling, while the wall is a bit darker. The contrasting effect is great as the basic color choices. If you like to repaint the porch room, I recommend you to select the wall and ceiling in light green. It will make you like spending time in the fresh forest.

Some people are afraid to apply the basic color of black in the room. Black is one of the great colors that you can pick as the accent. You can pain a little section of the room using this color. It can make your small room look larger. Don’t forget to apply striking and shining artistic pieces like framed painting or gold mirror on the black wall. You may need to try to make the room look shining by applying the suitable basic color. For example, you may pick the high gloss basic color to replace the light. If you love eggshell, you may try to keep that paint for the future.
