Like most painting projects, you shouldn’t pick the color for your bedroom on a whim. In total, we spend an average of 33 years in our bed. So, chances are, the colors you pick will be with you for quite some time. Since we spend so much in our rooms, especially if you’ve converted space into a work-from-home office, the color you choose will influence how you work and sleep. Here are some tips to consider when picking a paint color for your bedroom.
Choose the Mood
It’s not surprising that color can impact our mood. Certain tones bring out different emotions. If you’re looking to transform your bedroom into a peaceful oasis, try implementing softer colors. Pastels, light neutral tones, and a soft creme or eggshell will do the trick. Greens can help bring energy and balance to your bedroom, whereas blues and other cool tones can bring a soothing ambiance to any space.
Small Space? Amplify it!
A small bedroom can be transformed through paint and decorating to make it appear larger. While traditionally white and other light colors have been used to make space appear larger, that doesn’t mean it’s the only method of doing so. Create an accent wall with a dark color and decorate the room with contrasting lighter tones to make it appear larger than it is. Balancing dark and light will be key to mastering this artful transformation. Consider creating a color palette for your bedroom for further inspiration!
Your bedroom should be a place of retreat and relaxation. If yours could use a pick-me-up, it might be time for a fresh coat of paint.
