Your bedroom should be such, that the moment you step in, you are refreshed instantly. This happens only when it is painted with candid colors, blending perfectly with its interior decor. Various types of color trends emerging in the year 2018, will take the conventional styles to a whole new level. Although each color has its own character, color blending is undoubtedly a unique way of painting interiors. When you have a beautiful bedroom to live in, you can easily enjoy the comfort and luxury that it endows.

Colors are broadly categorized into two groups, viz, light and dark shades. A word of advice for those who are selecting the dark shades for bedroom, your room must be illuminated with adequate light as dark shades tend to make the space seem smaller and shadowy.

You may choose to paint just one wall of your room in a dark shade and the rest in a lighter one (same or contrast colors) to add vibrancy and jazz to your bedroom. You may also choose to paint three walls and have a customized wallpaper on one of them, that will complement the paint. You can have various design patterns on the wall that are painted differently using spray paintings, textured paintings etc.
The Concept of Light Shades

Light colors are capable of giving a spacious look to your room. Opt for these shades specifically if you are staying in a studio apartment or if your bedroom is considerably small. You can hypothetically analyze how your bedroom will look with the color you have chosen for it before actually applying it on the walls. Pink, mauve, pale green, sea green, and off white are the best suited colors for compact bedrooms.
  1. The color yellow appears utterly fresh when the bright rays of the sun fall on its walls. Jazz up your room with golden curtains or decorate with upholstery having a bright yellow touch in them.

A red-colored bedroom
There are a lot of classy themes that are possible using different shades of red color. Using the subtle shades of red is most recommended as they look more classy. White, ivory, and cream colors balance the brightness of these shades. So if you are fond of the brighter shades, don't forget to use these colors with them.
The problem with colors like red is, it is very difficult to choose the perfect shade. So an advice would be to get in touch with an interior decorator before you get your bedroom painted and decide the right shade.

You have to be sure that the shade which you choose should compliment colors of other rooms and increase the overall aesthetic value of your place. Make sure that the shades chosen are elegant. Overdoing the paintings on the walls could affect the ambiance and make it look shabby instead of attractive.

  2. When painted in lighter shades, even the smaller rooms look more spacious and self containing.

  4. Ensure that there is enough lighting for a spacious room which is colored in darker shades.
  5. Also, the living room should be painted in a more darker shade than the bedroom to bring an elegant look to your place.
  6. Try to analyze the effects that various intensities of lights have on the appearance of paints used.
  7. While choosing shades of any color, go for a shade that is one tone lighter than the one you like, as the paint looks darker when it dries up.
