I updated my tiny utility room by painting it an unusual colour – trolls said it would look tiny, the opposite’s true | The Sun

DO you have a boring utility space that doesn’t spark any joy in your home?

A homeowner showed how they transformed their tiny, bland room instantly by painting it black.

Taking to Reddit, they shared their striking before and after shots and people were amazed.

And while dark colours can often make a room feel smaller, they shared how the opposite was true with their DIY transformation. 

They added: “before & after. black doesn’t have to make a room feel smaller.”

Many people were quick to praise the paint job, and say it made their home look more expensive.

As well as painting the room, they also added a hanging rail to the wall for shirts and a wooden shelf for large bags of clothes.
