How do you pick colors for a bedroom?

Your bedroom is where you spend most of your time, even if most of that time is asleep. It is your santuary and where you perform the important work of recharging your batteries. Color selection isn't much different for chosing a color for a bedroom versus any other room in the house, but in this entry we will outline a couple of guidelines. There are no hard and fast rules to picking a bedroom color. Just look for a color that makes you happy, and be open to experimenting. Color influences us more than we realize, and your bedroom is the most occupied space in your house. Personalize and really make it yours.1. Consider using warm colors.

Your bedroom is where you spend most of your time, even if most of that time is asleep. It is your santuary and where you perform the important work of recharging your batteries. Color selection isn't much different for chosing a color for a bedroom versus any other room in the house, but in this entry we will outline a couple of guidelines. There are no hard and fast rules to picking a bedroom color. Just look for a color that makes you happy, and be open to experimenting. Color influences us more than we realize, and your bedroom is the most occupied space in your house. Personalize and really make it yours.


1. Consider using warm colors.

 

Popular wisdom says stay with a warm color, like yellows, reds, oranges, tans, purples, etc. I like this idea because I think it’s ok to feel enveloped in your bedroom, like it’s a warm and cozy place. I also like picking a color from a favorite rug or bedspread, even if it’s the smallest thread. Let’s say you are not fond of the warm color palate, that’s fine, just pick something cheerful. You do not want a blue gray that will bum you out everyday. Go for a white based blue that has some spunk. And let’s just say you have lots of red accents in your room and you want gray walls, that can look pretty sharp.

 

2. Samples are key.

 

I think if you go with a yellow or red, you should do samples and keep in mind that you will be dealing with multiple coats. I just painted a bedroom a lovely pale yellow and it took five coats with a primer to achieve the color. Another consideration for coverage is flat paint covers better than eggshell, satin and semi-gloss. You can discover how well the color covers with a sample board. Most paint stores have cheaper versions of sample quarts, and they are worth the money. It is not always easy to see how a color will look from a tiny sample. And some colors writ large will just vibrate, which might be too much for you to fall asleep in.


3. Don't worry about what other people think.

 

Dining rooms and living rooms are designed to be public spaces; bedrooms are not. Once past the teenage years of sulking in the bedroom, very few people allow anyone but the most intimate friends into their bedrooms. Don't worry aboutwhat other people will think of the coral you love, or the Danish blue, or the aubergine.  It is your space, the theatre of your dreams. You choose the set colors.
