When it comes to basements, they typically are dark and lack vivid color. Depending upon the use of your basement, the house wall colors that you choose you for walls will vary. House wall colors radiate different moods and feelings. Perhaps your basement consists of a theater room or possibly a child’s bedroom. The color of your basement walls could affect everyone’s mood. For instance, a pure, bright white suits a work area. You aren’t worried about aesthetics too much as you iron or do some soldering. And the bright white will reflect maximum light, so you can see those fine details. Bright white coupled with fluorescent tube lights can be a little harsh, so consider tempering it with halogen or incandescent light. Or you can go with deep red basement house wall colors. A deep red adds some powerful personality to a room. For a utility area, it’s a bit much. For a party room, den or bar-like feel, though, red is super. It accompanies wood perfectly and is a fine match for a fireplace. Try some swatches on a few square feet of wall before committing to a paint purchase. You may find the darkest reds are too oppressive. Another option is a single red wall. This will add punch without overpowering the space.
