Colorful Storage Spaces

Want to take a small step in painting a room in a dark color? We've been thinking about it lately and think we may take our first step with a storage space. Here are a few to help give you an idea of what we're talking about...

Some things that concern us:

  • Will clothing colors be affected when choosing them from a high-color closet?
  • Will food storage appear as organized and appealing in a colored pantry as in a neutral one?
  • Will closets be darker, requiring us to install a light fixture in order to find anything?

Do any of you guys have dark-painted storage spaces? If so, how do you like them?
