How to Choose Colors for Your Bedroom
Many variables contribute to our quality of sleep, like stress-levels and whether or not we exercise. A less obvious factor is, what bedroom colors we choose to design or paint with. A bedroom is meant to offer solace to its inhabitant. The paint color you choose for your bedroom should make the space seem well-coordinated and comfortable. The best bedroom paint colors typically create a soothing ambiance, but you can also opt for hues and shades.
While warm colors appear more active and create a stimulating effect, whereas cool colors—the hues from blue green through blue violet, most grays included—tend to recede, producing a more calming and relaxing effect. That said, there’s a lot of variation on the cool color spectrum; a bright green and a pale blue can create spaces with drastically different vibes.
Here are some tips which can help us while selecting the perfect color that would suit our bedroom.
Color Scheme Based on the Furniture
Pick colors from your dominant pieces in the room – such as floor rugs, chairs, and bedspreads, and choose paint colors that match these hues. If you introduce an entirely new color, you may pick something that clashes, or you may make your bedroom look too busy by having too many colors.
Complementary Color Scheme to Draw Out the Richness of Your Paint
This can be done by choosing a subtle hue of one color and pair it with a dominant hue of its complement. You can accomplish this with paint alone, or you can rely on a combination of paint and other decorations.
Keep Things Mellow with Monochromatic and Related Colors
Related colors are found next to each other on the color wheel, and monochromatic colors are colors of the same hue but different tones. Both of these color schemes have stylish, uniform appeal.
Consider the Size of the Bedroom and the Atmosphere You Want to Create
Generally a light color will make the space look larger while a darker or warmer color will make it feel a bit smaller and cozier.
Now you know things to consider before choosing bedroom paint colors. However, before getting started, the first and foremost thing is to shortlist the painting contractor. This can be an easier job if you know things to ask before hiring the contractor. Regular wall painting of your home will keep your walls healthy and safe, as it’s the simplest way to protect your home.
