Choosing a color to paint your bedroom is tough decision. Not only does the color of your room say a lot about the type of person you are, but it affects you in other ways as well. Your bedroom walls, and the color(s) you choose to paint them, are the first thing you see when you wake up and the last thing you see before you nod off for the night.
We know that the colors of a room can have a definite impact on your mood and even raise your blood pressure. So, with that being said, what color should you choose to paint your bedroom?
The obvious answer, and a long-time trend, is a cool color like blue or gray. This is because these colors promote a relaxing and calming mood. While these colors make sense for young children and those of us who have trouble sleeping, there are benefits that come from using other colors to paint your bedroom.
The Benefits of a Warm-Colored Bedroom
If you find it hard to wake up in the morning or you spend a lot of time in your room either studying or working, you might find a warm color like yellow or red to be a refreshing change.
Studies have shown us that warmer colors can provide a boost in energy, creativity and passion. Depending how often you spend time in your bedroom and what activities you try to accomplish there, a warm-colored bedroom could be exactly what you’re looking for.
If you work from home or have a hobby that requires your full attention that you often find yourself falling asleep during, it might be time to nix the dreary cool color you painted your bedroom years ago and try something new.
Not only do warmer, brighter colors help bring some energy to your room, they also provide a little more freedom for you to express yourself.
If you’ve always wanted to paint your bedroom your favorite color but hesitated because it’s not a color commonly associated with bedrooms, we’re telling you to reconsider.
While you might want to avoid choosing the brightest shade of that color for obvious reasons, there are plenty of lighter shades of reds, yellows and greens that we believe are being completely ignored for outdated reasons.
