How to select a bedroom color | Best Painters Westchester

At the end of a long day, your bedroom should be your sanctuary. A peaceful, private retreat where you can relax, unwind and catch those Zzzs.

If you’re thinking of updating your bedroom color, the choices may seem endless.  How do you know which colors will work in your bedroom so that it not only looks beautiful, but it also makes your room an inviting and calming oasis?  This guide will help you select the best bedroom paint colors so you can retreat in style!

Decide on a Mood

Before painting any room in your home, you’ll want to consider the environment you’re trying to create. Different colors have different meanings and feelings, which can create a psychological effect.  Lighter shades make your bedroom feel more spacious while dark shades make it feel slightly smaller and warmer.

Red, for example, can be associated with negative emotions such as restless, aggression or anger.  Blue and green are casual, more relaxing colors.

The key is to choose the best bedroom color scheme that will encourage the feelings and mood you want to create! So what colors are best?  Most people prefer soft, neutral shades, but if you want color, choose it from the fabrics in your room.  For neutral color choices use the whites and beiges in the fabrics.

It doesn’t have to match perfectly, but it should compliment the flow and style of your bedroom.  For a tranquil space, try soft colors in muted palettes. If you’re interested in colors beyond white, grey and beige, you can give blue, green and even yellow a try. 

A light blue is a versatile choice that works well with almost any furniture and décor, yet it exudes a feeling of complete relaxation. 

Even a subtle sunny yellow can work as a bedroom color. It encourages feelings of happiness to fight off doldrums and depression.

Think About the Light

Remember to consider how much natural light there is in your room because it will affect the way your paint color looks. 

The goal of your bedroom color is to find something that will invoke feelings of relaxation and total calm so you can drift off to sleep easily. Your bedroom isn’t confined to one single color scheme. If you want to give it a bolder touch, bring in some color with accessories and your bedding. The accents you choose will really help to spruce things up, and they’re much easier to change than paint color
