10 Things To Keep In Mind When Choosing A Colour Scheme For Your Bedroom

Your bedroom walls are the first thing you see in the morning and the last thing you see at night, so choosing the right colour scheme could go a long way in influencing your daily mood.

  1. Use lighter colours on your ceiling to make it feel and appear higher than it really is.
  2. Use neutral and light colours in a small room as dark shades will make a space feel smaller and more cramped.
  3. Greens are very soothing tones that make a great choice for a bedroom. However, don’t choose anything darker than a mid-green to keep the finished look light and bright.
  4. Combining a nature-inspired colour scheme with natural textures, such as bamboo and aged wood, will make the room look less structured and formal.
  5. Create a calm and relaxing ambience using shades of coastal blue and white paint for the feature wall, behind the bed.
  6. Create a cosy bedroom using dusky shades of purple, heather and grey. These shades will instantly emit a warm and relaxing feel.
  7. To achieve the luxurious yet rustic feel, try incorporating a vintage-style floral print. Bear in mind not to overuse it or the effect will be too garish and tacky.
  8. Want to enjoy spring all year round? Try a zesty yellow and grey combination. Yellow brings out the cheerful personality of the room while the chic shades of grey tones the whole scheme down and prevents the bright yellow from become too overpowering.
  9. Turn your bedroom into a luxurious retreat with a sophisticated palette of pewter and platinum. The key is to ensure consistency in tones used throughout the room by mixing shades and tints of the same colour, from dull pewter to a polished platinum.
  10.  Use light, space-enhancing pastels to create a modern and spacious room. This colour scheme works best when teamed up with fluorescents, large prints and vintage finds.
