Many variables contribute to how well you sleep at night, like your stress levels and what time you go to bed. A less obvious factor that impacts your nightly sleep is the color and ambiance of your bedroom. To create a serene, calming atmosphere, here are a few tips for picking a color for your upcoming interior painting job:
- Consider the mood — Do you want a bedroom that’s serene and peaceful, or one that’s timeless and classic? For a bedroom that’s calming and happy, choose interior painting colors like duck egg blue, champagne, and other soft color combinations. If you’d rather a bedroom that’s calming and classic, go with beige, off-white, and lighter blues.
- Think about accents –– The color you pick for your bedroom can offset the other accents in your room. Don’t be afraid to go bold, but at the same time, stick to lighter, less impactful colors if you want to highlight other accents in the room.
- Complement the furniture — If you have antique furniture in your bedroom, you might not want to go with a trendy, bright color, like burnt orange. Think about what type and style of furniture in your bedroom and choose paint before your interior painting job based on this.
- Go with what you like — The most important tip we can give you for choosing paint is to go with what you like. Stick to your instincts as you choose a new color for your bedroom, and don’t be afraid to go with a color on the strict basis that you like it.
