Have you ever thought that color is one of the most important aspects to consider when decorating to maximize space in a small bedroom? How to choose colors for the bedroom is one of the common questions we always ask ourselves, the influence of colors on the psyche is a widely discussed topic and the psychology of colors has shown that perceptions, thoughts, and how we react are influenced by the colors around us.
Colors and their meanings have evolved over the centuries and all of us have noticed that when you are in a room, the colors of the walls and objects affect us. Our moods can change from one shade to another. Whether it is a classic design or a modern furnished bedroom, color plays an important role and is more about the personal preferences of each of us, it reflects our style and mood. We choose a certain color because we like the color, we saw another room decorated with the same color scheme, or because there are trends in interior decoration. Some people have a hard time choosing interior colors because they don’t know where to start.
Interior designers tend to use color psychology to provide different styles of rooms, and colors that create the desired mood. The bedroom is a room where a person wants to spend quality time or to be alone and rest at the end of the day. For example, designers choose certain colors and suitable bed frames for the bedroom to ensure a calm, relaxed and peaceful sleep.
Choosing the right shades for your bedroom depends on the mood you want to induce. Before deciding on a certain combination of colors in the bedroom, keep this in mind:
Neutral colors have become a real trend in bedroom decoration in recent years. Light or matte shades of cream, beige, and brown are very popular. Neutral colors are a good choice for bedrooms especially because they can be successfully combined with almost any other color.
The best wall colors for the bedroom are because they make the room feel: blue, lavender, green tones, or even pink tones for children’s rooms if you want to create a relaxing and peaceful environment. Green means energy, peace, balance, security, stability, and nature.
Blue creates a sense of calm, loyalty, balance, authority, protection, and contemplation, stimulates thinking, delays hunger, and prevents nightmares. Purple is associated with fertility, happiness, and creativity, but you must use it in combination with other colors because it is a hard color.
Using such colors can make small bedrooms appear larger. You can combine them with some pastel colors to cheer up the room. For example, if you are looking to create a calm and peaceful yet classic environment, use aquamarine green mixed with mocha or dusty rose combined with light gray.
It is recommended to avoid shades of dark gray in the bedroom, as they can induce states of sadness and depressive stress.
Although not always recommended for the bedroom, you can also choose orange, yellow, or red tones, but be aware that you should use lighter shades of these colors, as using darker or brighter shades will make your bedroom look too overwhelming. Do not use such colors in small bedrooms, as they will make them smaller. If you really want to use these colors, for example, choose a neutral base color for the decoration of one wall. You can also use them in all sorts of combinations depending on the mood you want to create. For example, to give your room a fresh yet uplifting feel, choose sunny yellows with warm grays or light corals with crisp neutrals. A combination of warm shades such as gold, burgundy, slate brown, and turquoise helps to make the room feel pleasant and relaxing at the same time.
Use accessories such as plants, decorative pillows, and chairs to enhance the color scheme you have chosen.
White can be a perfect choice for bedrooms, especially if you are on a tighter budget. Don’t forget to use some accessories in pastel colors to cheer up the white bedroom.
The color of the bedroom walls should also complement the color of the bedroom furniture.
The bedroom color should also complement the exterior style of your home.
