Tips for choosing bedroom colors

The bedrooms are the most personal rooms of the home, where we rest, relax, enjoy our moments of intimacy, etc. Therefore, it is important that they are to our liking and favor our well-being.

Here, beyond the furniture, lighting or mattress, we must give great importance to the colors of the rooms , since, although at first glance it may seem something merely aesthetic, the truth is that they are much more important than what seem, directly influencing our mood.

If you are thinking of changing the color of the walls of your room , pay attention and take note, because this interests you.

Aspects to consider when choosing bedroom colors

Room size

The size of the room directly influences the choice of color, since the tone you choose can completely change the perception of the room.

For example, if it is a small bedroom, white and light tones will be your best allies, since they will make it appear much larger, spacious and brighter.

On the other hand, in a large bedroom you can opt for darker colors , such as olive green or navy blue, as it will make it more cozy.

The lighting

You should also take into account the lighting when choosing the colors of your bedroom , since if a lot of sun enters during the day , you can allow yourself to opt for darker and colder colors , since the light can counteract the impact of the color.

If instead you have a bedroom with little light , we recommend opting for warmer colors that take advantage of and reflect as much light as possible.


The ceiling is also important, since you can leave it blank or, if you prefer and are looking for something more original, combine two different colors, one for the walls and one for the ceiling . In this way, you will get the room to visually change depending on the tone you choose.

By using a dark ceiling color , you can visually widen a tall, narrow room.

If, on the other hand, you want it to appear taller , you should paint the ceiling in bright, neutral tones .

The decoration

Of course, the decoration and the color of the walls should go hand in hand . Therefore, in case you want to paint the walls but keep the furniture, you should choose a color that combines well with the furniture.

Use of the room

The use that is given to the room is also key, since each type of room needs different shades depending on what we use it for.

For example, warmer colors are recommended for bedrooms , since it is a place that we use to sleep and relax, and these colors will give a feeling of warmth, calm and tranquility that will favor your well-being and help you fall asleep.

On the other hand, in a room where activity is required, such as the office or the kitchen, brighter colors would be used, which give you energy and positivity.

Try before painting the bedroom colors

You may see a color that you love at first glance, and then once you've applied it to the walls, you realize that you don't like it as much as you thought. Therefore, before deciding on a color, do tests on the wall , to make sure that it will fit with the idea you had in mind, that it will combine well with the rest of the decoration and, in short, you will love how it looks.
