Our lower level family room is dingy due to the main level deck overhead blocking light that can get in. I originally painted dark paneling a cream color and it still feels too dim without lots of lights on and I've been wondering what to do. White it is! Thanks for this article!

Any recommendations on what white paint does best. Should you avoid yellow undertones for example?
