Almost every person’s favorite place in the house is the bedroom. After a long day at work or school, don’t you just want to lay down in the comfort of your room?

While you might already have the most comfortable bed, the softest pillows, and the warmest blanket, sometimes these aren’t enough. Why? Because your bedroom itself may not exhibit the kind of ambiance, your mind and body need to rest well. Sometimes, the amount of sleep you get and the energy you gain when you wake up depend on your walls’ color.

Yes, that’s right! Wall colors play a big part in your bedroom’s overall look and feel. The color you choose will change the whole atmosphere. So, keep reading to find out how colors transform your room to set any mood.

White For Calmness

A basic yet effective color, white is perfect for those who want things simple. Or, if you don’t want to risk choosing a bold and bright color, white is your best bet. Dominantly white bedroom colors often evoke a feeling of peace and cleanliness. Try choosing white paint in warm tones like off-white or shades with yellow, green, or beige undertones. These colors can make your room cozier and perfect for a peaceful night’s sleep.

The color white also makes small bedrooms look larger. White paint will reflect all the natural and artificial light entering your room, making walls recede. This optical illusion deceives your eyes into thinking you’re in a much bigger space.

Blue For Serenity

If you’re not a fan of the plainness of white, you can still turn your bedroom into a serene haven with blue paint. Blue is still a popular color choice for bedroom walls. The dreaminess of light blue shades like sky blue and pastel blue is soothing for the eyes. You’ll fall asleep in no time as you take in the serenity of your wall’s blue hue.

Blue is also an excellent choice for those who want more color in their room yet are too wary of bolder colors like reds and yellows. Go for a saturated dark blue to pair with wall decorations in contrasting colors. Darker blues imitate the night sky, so even if you’ve got all the lights on, you’ll be in dreamland as soon as your head hits the pillow.

Gray For Security

Gray is a neutral, no-nonsense color that pairs well with other colors. Like its fellow neutral color cousins, white and black, gray is excellent for people who want their bedrooms to look sophisticated. It gives an air of stability as if nothing and no one can bring you down after waking up from the best sleep you’ve ever had.

If you enjoy decorating your room with furniture and knick-knacks than painting it, then you’re in luck! Most pieces work well in gray-colored rooms. Hang up some art deco frames on a gray wall and watch the colors pop. Did you know that bedroom lighting also affects how you sleep? Choose light sources that complement gray with warm undertones to get even better sleep. A dimmer or lamp with warm-hued light along with the warmth of the gray walls of your bedroom can help your body relax faster.

Green For Vigor

There’s a reason why people feel revitalized after a hike or a camping trip out in the forest. If you find blue or white a little too intense for cool colors, then green can take their role. The color green is easier on the eyes and is believed to diffuse anxiety and protect against other mood disorders. Paint your walls a soft or vibrant shade of green to bring the magic of nature into your room and ease your senses. If your bedroom is next to a tree or garden, green walls can make the space feel like an extension.

Red And Orange For Liveliness

Finding yourself exhausted even after eight total hours of sleep? Try painting your bedroom in a bright and vivid warm color like orange or red. Once you wake up, you’ll stay up! 

Orange can rejuvenate and give you more enthusiasm to begin every new day. Red, on the other hand, inspires excitement. If you share a bedroom with your lover, the color red can amplify feelings of love and passion. Red also symbolizes luck and happiness in Chinese culture. So, if you’re yearning for a bit more luck in life and love, why not paint the walls red? It’s not enough that you have your bedroom walls in a bright color. Add in as many accessories as you want to make your room the best room in the house. Check out this list of accessories every bedroom needs. You’ll create a space that fits your tastes and gives you the best sleep and ample amounts of energy to face any challenge.

Color Your World

Bedrooms are meant to be private safe spaces for people to rest and recharge. When your room isn’t the most comfortable to sleep in, you’ll end up having a hard time sleeping or waking up tired.  While good-quality mattresses and pillows are essential, you should also consider the color of your bedroom walls. The right color can improve your restless nights and turn your simple bedroom into one of heaven’s clouds.
