Most people don’t spend too much time in their bedroom. Well, wait, that’s not true at all. Most people don’t spend too much time awake in their bedroom. We all spend a lot of time in our bedrooms, but most of it is with our eyes closed and our brains shut off.
But the time we do spend awake and alert in the bedroom is important. Your bedroom is the last thing you see before you fall asleep, and it’s the first thing you see when you wake up. In other words, it sets the mood for your day, and for your sleep. Those are both important things.
So it’s crucial that your bedroom be painted the right color and that it gives you the right energy, vibes, and aesthetic. Painting any room in your home is a great way to spruce up your place and have it feel nicer, and your bedroom is no exception. But you need to pick a good color. Read on to find some of the best paint colors for bedrooms.
1. Silver or gray
Silver and gray are common bedroom color decisions, and for a good reason. They look modern and simplistic, but in a very good way. They keep your bedroom from looking cramped, overly energetic, or chaotic.
If you have a modern bedroom, silver or gray will match it perfectly. Or if your bedroom is just simple, and doesn’t have a lot of aesthetic choices, then silver and gray can be the perfect backdrop to make sure that you fall asleep peacefully and start your day on the right foot.
There are few colors as aesthetically pleasing as taupe. It’s simply a color that’s easy on the eyes, and nice to look at. So it shouldn’t be particularly surprising that it’s a top paint color for a bedroom.
Taupe is one of the few colors that manages to be relaxing while also full of life. As such, it works perfectly to help you calm down as you’re falling asleep, and gain energy and happiness as you’re waking up. It’s also one of the most versatile colors that you can put in your bedroom. It works with almost any design style or bedroom aesthetic, as well as any type of lighting. When in doubt, taupe is not only a nice choice, but a safe one as well.
3. Soft, light blue
Light blue is a classic bedroom choice. You don’t want something too bright, but instead a light blue that is a beach house color. That adds brightness and cheer to your bedroom, without being aggressively colorful. It’s the perfect color to wake up to, especially if you have some white accenting or trim, or even just some white furniture in your bedroom.
4. Apricot orange
A lot of people shy away from color on their bedroom walls. And if you don’t feel like a color is right for you, then that’s fine. It’s not for everyone. But there’s no need to be scared or dismissive of colorful bedrooms. A pop of color on the walls of your bedroom can add some energy and joy, and make your bedroom feel larger than it actually is. Especially if you have some good natural light, an apricot orange makes for a tremendous bedroom.
5. Light forest green
Light forest green is similar to apricot orange. It’s energetic and fun, but not overly vibrant. It’s not for everyone (you have to want a pop of color in your bedroom) but it can be perfect for the right person. It plays well with natural light, and fits with most design aesthetics. The key is to not have a green that’s too bright and in your face, but also not too dark and dreary.
