Colours for healthy bedrooms

The bedroom is a sanctuary for relaxation and regeneration. Low-emission, healthy-living paints should be the fundamental choice for the bedroom so that its colour scheme can reveal its full capacity as a calm, relaxing place. Thus also ensuring that you can sleep better.

Every colour affects us differently so that it is a good idea to take a closer look at the effect of individual colour shades particularly when designing the bedroom and its walls. After all, the colours chosen for the bedroom walls make a considerable contribution to creating a calm, relaxing and recuperative setting.

Important questions to ask before choosing the colour scheme could be:

  • How do the colours affect the quality of your sleep?
  • Which colours promote a healthy sleep?

Which paints are suitable for the bedroom walls?

Choosing the colour scheme for your bedroom depends on your personal needs and often also takes account of the colours of your furniture and the bed. There is a huge selection of different colours available for your bedroom so that you can make your loveliest ideas come true. It is worth taking note of a few basic colour concepts that may help to achieve certain aspects, for example, if your bedroom should be somewhere to relax, calm down or be creative.

If you just sleep in your bedroom, you should opt for subtle, soothing colours. Pastels or light beige shades are ideal. On the other hand, dark colours with a warm hue can also be used depending on the size of the room and how the furniture is arranged.

For example, in a large room, dark red walls can set the scene for a cosy atmosphere. Many people also use the bedroom as their home office, so this also needs consideration when selecting the colour scheme. Colours such as blue or green are best for concentrating on work. If you would like more serenity at the same time, you should choose a lighter colour such as white or beige. Creative minds searching for new ideas may find a stimulating red or orange to be the right colour.
Selecting the right colour for bedroom walls is also influenced by other factors such as the room’s orientation and whether your bedroom is on the ground floor or the top floor in the building. If your bedroom is full of natural light, dark colours might be better on the walls to reduce the brightness a little. The same applies in reverse: if your room is already dark, you should opt for light colours for the walls such as traditional white or light beige shades to brighten the room.
