If you’re like most people, you want your home to be a relaxing haven where you can unwind at the end of each day – and your bedroom is front-and-center in that role. But what if your bedroom isn’t the most relaxing place in the house because of its paint color?
That’s where the Pinehurst painting experts come in.
Color Psychology: Choosing the Right Paint Color for the Master Bedroom
Picking the right paint color for your bedroom isn’t terribly difficult, but it does require a little detective work in color psychology.
If you’re painting your bedroom to sell, none of this applies to you. Your Realtor® will probably advise you to paint your bedroom a neutral color, not something personalized, so that it’ll appeal to the widest possible range of buyers. If you are selling your home, choose a beige, light gray or another very pale pastel – and talk to your agent about what’s selling in your area before you decide.
5 Colors for a Relaxing, Calming Bedroom
Even if you have no trouble sleeping, picking the right colors for your bedroom is important. You want to create a relaxing ambiance, and some of the most soothing colors include dark gray-blue, soft gray, neutral green, lavender and ice blue.
Blending neutral gray and sky blue, this shade inspires serenity and helps people relax. Blue is also associated with safety and tranquility, which means it’s a great way to lull yourself to sleep.
Because soft gray is so neutral and pairs well with nearly any décor, it’s the ideal shade for the bedroom. It’s not exciting or vibrant, which means you’ll be able to relax your mind and drift off peacefully beside gray walls.
Green is lively, but if it’s a neutral shade, it’s not going to keep you up at night. It’s commonly associated with balance, calm and harmony (just like in nature), as well as renewal and growth – and that makes it ideal for the place where you need all those things.
Lavender isn’t just another shade of purple. In fact, it’s a perfect blend of exotic and elegant – and it’s soothing. Light purple inspires daydreams and calm, and it’s associated with luxury and royalty.
While light blue is most often used in creative spaces, it’s ice blue that creates a cool, calming effect. Think of the sky on a clear, crisp day; that’s ice blue. Its association with water lends it to tranquility, and because it’s not too vibrant, it’s great for a bedroom with neutral décor.
