Default Painting advice!!! Help!

I'm painting a Basement a charcoal grey color. Should I leave the back wall white as an accent where I'm going to mount a 65 inch tv or should I paint the whole basement the dark charcoal grey color? Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Having a white accent wall where your TV is doesn't seem like a great idea. Seems like it would reflect more light and take away from the TV. If anything, I would paint it black.

I agree that the white wall could definitely put the light off for the television - have you considered a more neutral color that's not quite white? I've painted a lot of rooms where 3 walls would be one color, and I'd have that one different just to open the space up a bit.
