Colours can affect your mood, so it is important to choose a bedroom colour scheme based on colours you like but also depending on what suits you personally.
For example, you might not be a fan of blue (especially if you are a girl), but blue can be a very calming and tranquil colour, so it might be more of a preferred option if you want somewhere that is truly relaxing and will make you feel at ease.
Pinks and reds on the other hand are more fun, playful and romantic. Along with yellows and oranges, they are warm and inviting colours.
Neutral colours – such as whites and creams – are not only more suitable for guest bedrooms, rather than choosing a colour that some guests may dislike, but they are restful and soothing colours as well.
Choosing a colour based on the size of the bedroom
For smaller bedrooms, it is wise to opt for a lighter colour, which will reflect more light and therefore give the illusion that the room is much larger than it actually is. Mirrors can also help to open a small space and make it appear larger – someone with a small bedroom might want to have a few small mirrors dotted around or one large mirror in the room for this reason.
Alternatively, for larger bedrooms, darker colours can make the room appear smaller. Although this may not sound that great, it should help to close in the space and therefore give the feel of a cosy, snug and intimate bedroom.
Try before you buy (lots of pots)
Most importantly, think about using tester pots before buying your decided colour in bulk, just in case you find that it is not what you wanted or it doesn’t go with the room how you originally envisaged. Try different colours out and get an idea of what will be the best depending on the size of the room, the space and generally just what you like best.
