There is a rule known as 60/30/10 which is essential when choosing the colors of the walls. This rule is to be aware that a tone will be the predominant and, therefore, which cover 60% of the room, there will be an important second color cover 30% and finally, color that will bring the finishing touch will be 10% of the space. Always follow this rule in the case of wanting to combine several colors.

Light colors for small spaces
As mentioned before, the lighting is a staple when opt for one or the other tones. If the light is natural or artificial, you can change the hue of choice and not be the same way. If it is a room in which there will be too much light, it is best to choose clear and neutral colors, white would be ideal to give a sense of spaciousness.
