What type of paint colour is Cyberspace? Is it a real navy blue?

Cyberspace is a WICKED navy blue. And while there are BRIGHTER navy blue paint colours available, Cyberspace is a great way to get a strong look, without going over the top.

Is Cyberspace a warm or cool paint colour?

Cyberspace is a cool paint colour (literally AND figuratively), however, you might find that dark colours can give the ILLUSION of warmth or coziness via their added DEPTH (compared to light versions).

What’s the LRV of Cyberspace?

Cyberspace has a VERY dark LRV of 6. This low LRV means it’s WELL into the dark range.

Not sure what LRV is? It could save your paint lovin’ life – read all about it HERE.

What are the undertones & general colour profile of Cyberspace? Will it look black?

Cyberspace is definitely navy blue, however, it’s TEMPERED by a bit of a gray. This gray calms it down so it’s not as strong as say, Benjamin Moore Hale Navy or Sherwin Williams Naval.

If you have a DARK room, Cyberspace can look a bit blackish, but its GLORIOUS colour will rise up if you hit it with some interior lighting!

What’s the best way to sample Cyberspace?

Like with every paint colour, I highly recommend using SAMPLIZE. Samplize is a peel & stick paint sample that you can easily move around your room for over HALF THE COST of traditional sample pots – and they deliver right to your front door!

Is Cyberspace a good colour for the exterior of my home? 

If you’re thinking of Cyberspace for your front door or shutters, I would say YES (as long as it suits the other features of your home). If you’re thinking of it for your WHOLE home, just make sure you know what you’re getting into as it’s a super dark colour and may fade faster with south-facing or afternoon western sunshine.

5 Tips to Choosing an Exterior Paint Colour

Is Cyberspace a popular navy blue paint colour?

Absolutely. I DO think it’s under-utilized due to its placement in the fan deck (it’s not with the other blues, likely due to the degree of gray in it).

  1. I have sw cyberspace on front door and shutters! We live in a small ranch home but my front porch is recessed! Love cyberspace but dark for recessed porch! Any suggestions on a change of color for front door? And do I need to paint shutters?

      Hi Deborah! Well, it can depend on your home and the products on it, but USUALLY the best choice with navy blue shutters would be a black front door (which wouldn’t help you much with your dark situation, although I find that sometimes the clean CONTRAST of a sharp black can be nice in a darker area). Some people do red, but not every home can support a red front door!

  2. I picked out Cyberspace for my kitchen island! I’m a little afraid to do something so crazy but I’m going to give it a shot. What do you think about a Cyberspace island with White Dove cabinets and Edgecomb Gray walls? Thanks for your help!

      Hi Emily, I think that sounds LOVELY as long as White Dove suits your countertop/backsplash! If not, check out SW Pure White too 🙂

  3. I’m considering doing Cyberspace or Peppercorn for lower cabinets and white uppers. Any thoughts on which color to pick and which white would look best? I was thinking Alabaster, but would a more stark white look better?

      Exterior? Yes, as long as it suits the roof and any brick/stone. The entire interior? Nope :). I’m going to assume you mean the exterior ;). BM Deep Space can look pretty wicked too!

  4. Do you think cyberspace kitchen/bathroom cabinets with pure white walls and trim would look good together? We are doing the walls and trim in different sheens. Any opinion would be great!! We are remodeling our home and need all the help we can get!

  5. Hi Kylie, thank you for all your help with paint colors always, I watch many of your videos. I am really torn. We are are looking to paint the exterior of our home and we compared it to a home in our neighborhood that used egret white as the main house color and cyberspace for their roof (yes they painted the barrell tile, which we will too) and their front and garage doors. Although it looks nice, it looks a little too contemporary for our taste but I love cyberspace. My question is can I do cyberspace on the roof and front door but use natural tan by Sherwin Williams or Dover white instead of egret white? I am trying to not go for such a stark contemporary feel. more of a warm feel for the house color? What do you think? thank you so much.

  6. Im planning on doing a TV accent wall with some board and batten in my basement (walk-out but otherwise 3000k recessed lights). I’m deciding between BM Mysterious and SW Cyberspace. How do they compare? The “everywhere else color else color” is currently between BM Pale Oak, SW Egret White, and SW Natural tan. Trim/cabinetry is BM White Dove.

    I’ve watched your videos and read your blogs about those undertones and drab grieges in the basements. Will any of these paint colors or combos bring that “wow” effect?
