Choosing a color of paint for your bedroom is a very important decision. Think about it, your bedroom is the place where you both start and end your day. Sleep is arguably the most important part of your day. It affects how you feel and think. The color of your room isn’t just an aesthetic choice, it has a real impact.
For this reason, most people prefer a nice, cool, relaxing and calm color scheme for their room. Something that makes you want to drift off at night.
Choose a Paint Color Family
Blues are probably one of the most common paint color families for bedrooms. It is often thought to be the coolest, calmest color to paint your bedroom.
A coat of light blue or aqua paint is perfect to come home to and relax at the end of a hard day’s work.
- Soft oranges and yellows:
Orange isn’t a color people often think of as calm or relaxing. I actually wasn’t sure how I felt about it myself until my parents chose a beautiful burnt orange with white and dark wood accents. When they said they were painting their room orange I thought it was going to be very ugly. I was wrong, it’s great. Very warm yet calm vibe.
Greens, blue-green, grey-green, all great colors to paint your room. Green is a nice cool and calm color quite similar to blue but a little bit more unique. I’d choose a greenish color if you want something a little different to add some character to your room.
Add some character to your bedrooms paint scheme
A technique I personally love to make your bedroom’s paint job a little more interesting is to paint an accent wall. Just paint one wall a separate, but complementary color to the others. For example, if you have 3 light blue walls, paint the fourth wall with a darker blue for a trendy calming monochrome vibe.
Another option is to simply paint the ceiling a different color or pattern. a light grey ceiling with blue walls can help shake things up a bit. You can also do a different pattern or texture with the same base color. When I was a kid I had light blue walls and used sponges to paint the ceiling blue and white, creating a cloud-like effect.
