The bedroom is the room where we seek to feel more comfortable, the place that offers more privacy than anywhere else in the house. And painting, as well as decoration or distribution, has a lot to say when it comes to creating comfortable environments that invite relaxation, tranquility, and rest.
In any room, the painting of the walls is a decorative element capable of marking its own style (we have already seen how the choice of color to paint in the living room could influence ). In the case of the bedroom, it is especially important considering that, with complete certainty, it will be the last thing you see before falling asleep and the first visual impression that your eyes capture when you wake up.
The tones and colors, as well as their distribution and composition, will influence when it comes to creating that harmonious environment that makes your bedroom the place where you can feel most comfortable and the one that best reflects your own personality.
The Best Options To Paint A Bedroom
As a general idea, the walls of a room designed for rest ask for soft tones, although you have very different options that also admit bright and cheerful colors that, well combined, can achieve the aesthetic balance that a bedroom needs.
In addition to your tastes and your way of being, when choosing the colors of the rooms you have to take into account two important details: the size and space available and, also, the natural light that enters the room every morning.
For small rooms and interior rooms with little light, white is always a wise choice. It will give you a feeling of greater space and light and will go well with any type of furniture you choose. In addition, it will give prominence to fundamental decorative details in a bedroom such as textiles: bedspreads, duvet covers, cushions… they will stand out more with white walls.
In larger rooms, the white color can also serve as a perfect base to combine with other shades, allowing you to create very personal spaces. For example, for a room with marine air, playing with white and blue is a good choice and by making your composition in white and green tones, you will have a fresh, cozy space with a nice natural touch.
If you prefer dark colors, they are also a possible option, as long as you have a large bedroom and combine them in a way that does not create a “gloomy” effect. Dark olive green in the headboard area, in contrast to softer tones, such as the fashionable mint, on the rest of the walls, can be very elegant and welcoming, just like a similar combination, but playing with a dark blue velvety effect and less dense and deep shades.
Neutral Tones, A Safe Choice
If you don’t want to get too complicated, there are colors for the bedroom that are always right. There are some ‘wildcard’ colors and shades that look great in any bedroom.
Soft grays are one of the most elegant ranges you can bet on. Gray is a pure trend this season and has also reached the rooms. In pearl finishes, together with white, it gives a fantastic result and if you want, you can also create combinations with darker tones along with lighter ones, a perfect idea for a modern bedroom with a minimalist air.
Beige, sand and nude are the most relaxing. They are colors that also combine perfectly with the style you prefer. Soft browns are great, for example, for a bedroom with a wooden floor and, on the other hand, a nude with pink or mauve nuances are perfect for giving a cozy touch to a room with a ceramic floor.
Another successful possibility is pastel tones: light blue, pink, yellow, or soft violets… they create warm environments, ideal for rest, and also add a romantic point, ideal for a rustic-style bedroom or for a room that is not too large but is very luminous.
Some Original Ideas To Inspire You
As you can see, there are many possibilities when it comes to giving color to the bedrooms of your home. Plan the painting of the rooms trying to imagine the final result. In your mind, dare to try some new combinations.
One of the most current decorative trends when it comes to painting the walls of the bedroom consists of clearly differentiating the cloth where the headboard is located. It is very nice to place a stronger tone in this part of the room, which stands out from the rest of the walls. For example, you can try painting the walls in cozy soft sand tones and, in contrast, the wall of the headboard in a powerful terracotta. You can even paint the entire room plain and opt for decorative wallpaper just in the area of the bed, to thus have a totally modern mural effect.
Another of the newest options is to include bright tones at certain points to give a bedroom its own personality. Imagine a guest room or a children’s room painted in pale yellows, but including in a column or as a frame for a built-in wardrobe, a wonderful mustard or orange tone… what looks great?
As the last suggestion, you also have “unfinished” effect paintings that are very original and are ideal for a room where you want a practical, modern, and “urban” style.
These are just some ideas for painting to help you make your bedroom that cozy space that you have a hard time leaving.
