Attic remodeling paint

nbethNovember 19, 2010

I need help picking paint colors for an attic remodel. I have fabrics picked and think I want to use a mix of brown/neutrals. I am having a hard time figuring out how to make the room flow. It has knee walls. I am trying to figure out how to post pics so you guys can see the room and the fabrics.

Thanks for your help.

I prefer dark colors on the knee walls and lighter colors up higher. Light colors up high push the ceiling up, dark colors up high bring the ceiling down. So it depends on what you want to do from the visual mumbo-jumbo perspective.

To post photos, first upload them to a third-party site like photobucket, flickr, etc. That website will assign each photo a URL, or a web address. Right click and copy that address.

Then come back here and after writing the HTML code below, paste the photo's URL between the quotation marks in the HTML code:

<IMG SRC="" WIDTH=500>

The number following WIDTH= defines how wide the photo will display in pixels. You can change it from 500 to something else, 300, 400, 600, etc. But that allows you to define how large the photo will display instead of ending up with a tiny photo or one so large that you have to scroll left and right to take it all in.
