Your bedroom is your sanctuary. It is a place for rest, relaxation, and calmness. The question is – can our decoration choices help create the right atmosphere to promote better sleep?
Colour psychology demonstrates that colours affect our mood and behaviour in various ways. This means that we can use a specific colour palette to create the perfect ambiance for every room, in line with the intended use. When it comes to bedrooms, it is important to note that colours can affect sleep in various ways. This guide explores the best bedroom colours according to the principles of colour psychology.
Blue is deemed to be the best colour choice when it comes to promoting better sleep. Light shades of blue are particularly conducive to sleep; and create a calm, light-hearted look that promotes feelings of peacefulness. You may also opt for darker colours such as marine or navy shades if you are looking to create a cosy, luxurious look. Whichever shade you choose, it will result in a soothing bedroom vibe.
Grey is a highly versatile colour that can be mixed with a wide variety of other colours. You can, therefore, add some colourful touches along with your grey theme. A lighter, pastel shade of grey is recommended and more favourable for promoting feelings of calmness and relaxation. Using a bedroom colour palette incorporating various hues of grey can also create a luxurious, hotel-like vibe. All you need to do is make sure the lighter shades are dominant for a subtle, clean, and calm atmosphere.
Bedroom interiors can sometimes feel monotonous and lacking striking colours. Using a shade of green can help you incorporate some brightness and playfulness while giving an invigorating, grounding vibe to your bedroom. There are many shades of green available. If you’re worried about overpowering the space, however, opt for a feature wall.
Looking for a clean, crisp, and calm look? White is the perfect colour to create a haven of serenity. Bright shades of white are great for a contemporary, minimalistic design. Many luxurious hotel bedrooms favour white walls and bedsheets in order to promote feelings of comfort and cleanliness. We recommend adding a few colourful finishing touches to really boost a serene yet energising vibe.
Are you looking for a colour that will make you feel energised and bounce out of bed in the morning? Blush pink is a tried and tested colour when it comes to promoting energy and making us feel refreshed. As it is a subtle and versatile colour, you can choose to use it sparsely or bountifully depending on your taste. Simply make sure you opt for lighter, blush pink shades as opposed to dark or bright hues of pink which can disturb your sleeping pattern.
