You shouldn’t choose the colors of paint for a bedroom on a whim. The average person spends about 33 years of their life in bed. While one paint job won’t last that long, it’s likely that your next paint job will last for a while. Because you’ll spend so much time in your bedroom, it will affect how you fall asleep at night, how you talk to your partner, how you feel when you wake up, and so much more.
Make your bedroom a place that makes you feel better instead of a place that makes you feel worse. Choose colors that will give the room the mood and feel you want.
Think about the mood
Experts will have many different ideas about what colors you should use in your bedroom, but you shouldn’t let those ideas get in the way of who you are and what you need. How do you want your bedroom to make you feel? Do you want to be comfortable? Relaxed? Energized? Clean? Fresh? The paint color should show how you want to feel at the end of a busy day and at the start of a new one.
A calm, soft mood
Think about pastel colors if you want your bedroom to be a calm place to rest. When you use a color story of soft pastels, you make a calm place where people can think and relax. Purple is a strong color, but it can be turned into light pastels that make you feel welcome.
Make the most of a small space
Even though it seems strange to put black on your bedroom wall, dark colors can make small rooms look bigger and can help if you don’t have much natural light. Don’t get too lost in darkness, though. Light bedding and accessories can be used to balance out a dark wall.
Cool and Peaceful
It’s cozy and comfortable to curl up in a pile of blankets, but it’s less comfortable when the room is too hot. In fact, experts on sleep hygiene say that for the best sleep, the room should be cool, between 60 and 67 degrees. Choosing a cool color tone will go with the cool weather and help you get ready for a restful night’s sleep.
Energy and balance, and even a little bit of chilling out
Green is a good color for the bedroom because it can make you feel both energized and calm. It’s a beautiful color that will make the rest of your room look good, no matter what style you like. It looks good in both traditional and modern styles. Green makes you think of nature and makes you feel grounded, which is great for sleep.
Just a Smidgen
If you can’t decide on a color or think you might feel too much of a certain color in your bedroom, but you still want it there, think about how you can add it in small amounts.
A red accent wall won’t take over the whole room, but it might give it the energy you want. Add paneling to the bottom part of your wall and paint it a different color than the rest of the wall. Put up a chair rail and paint the bottom a different color from the top.
