The color and decor of the bedroom is an important contributor to the relaxed feeling and the ambience. Here is how to pick the perfect paint colors for your bedroom. Incorporate these ideas and you'll never want to leave your bedroom again.
Remember that using a single color in a bedroom is not only boring, it also looks very unappealing. So, always use a combination of colors, even if it is just for a single wall or a stripe on each wall.
For small bedrooms, light and slightly mild pastel shades are the way to go. They give an enlarging effect to the room and make it look more spacious. For larger rooms, a combination of dark shades (preferably for the ceiling or a single wall) and light ones will be a good option. They will give the room a very cozy and warm appearance.
Also, the color of the drapes is an important factor you need to keep in mind. When it comes to drapes and walls, the cardinal rule is to follow a principle of contrast. So, if the wall with the window has light colored drapes, then you can experiment a bit, and have the wall painted in a dark color and vice versa.
Make sure that the paint colors that you pick for your bedroom complement the color of the furniture. Complement does not necessarily mean match. The overall aesthetic value of the room must remain intact even if you choose to use mismatched furniture.
If the room receives moderate sunlight, go for more sober shades like perhaps a very light shade of olive or blue-gray and use bright white lighting. This way, you're using the availability and the lack of the light to your advantage, by making sure that the room looks welcoming and has adequate lighting, natural or artificial.
While you finalize paint colors for your kids' bedrooms, convince them about the best color, after considering the points mentioned earlier. If one is not comfortable with the color the bedroom is painted with, it definitely affects the mood and overall behavior. So, know that everyone's opinions should be considered while finalizing the color.
Well, no one said it was easy to pick a paint color for your bedroom. All you have to do is keep these points in mind, go through the colors and patterns that you think will be most suitable, shortlist them, and finalize the winning combination. Happy painting!
