I want to choose more neutral colours such as light beige, eggshell, etc.
However, I want to make the basement brighter, mature and not look lived in by a teenager.
Any suggestions what colours to paint the wall so it will look classy? Should I also paint the baseboards a complimentary colour other than white? Should the ceiling remain white?
Well, since basement is the darkest area in your room, I suggest color white for your wall, as well as with your ceiling. This will allow the light to bounce about your room making the fullest use of lighting possible. And to add a classy look, you can choose the shade of white that have a hint of green, yellow, blue or pink.
