For instance, if you have a small living room painting all of your walls black may make your living room even smaller and less inviting. Small living rooms benefit from lighter colors on the walls, but you could always paint a black accent wall or add plenty of black accents.
You can also put a lighter color on the top half of the wall and black on the bottom half to create the illusion of more space.
