It’s unfortunate when people learn the hard way that color is a big part of interior design. Specific colors work well with certain themes and some colors work better together than others. There are also some colors that make a bedroom look more festive than relaxing. While this works for some people, it’s important to decide beforehand if this fits your needs.
Are you doing a full redesign of your bedroom or just repainting the walls? If you plan to keep the floors, rugs, bed linens, curtains and furniture, consider what paint colors work with them before making a choice. Pay special attention to the things that would be costly to remove, such as your carpet, tiled floors or expensive bedroom set.
Are you going for a specific look in your bedroom? Interior painting might either clash with that theme or complement it. This is one of the many reasons Pinterest and Instagram have become so popular among people who want to update their homes. Go through pictures of completed designs to see what colors work best together for the theme you have in mind. This can help you to avoid costly — and potentially ugly — mistakes.
How large is your bedroom? If it is large, then you might be able to pull off darker colors. Darker colors are not a bad idea if you only sleep inside the bedroom. They absorb the light and can help you to get a better quality of sleep. This is especially helpful for people who work nights. If you spend a lot of time in your bedroom or it is much smaller, consider lighter colors to open up the space.
Your bedroom is one of the most important rooms in the home as it affects your quality of sleep. Consider this when making interior painting decisions so that you can feel confident in the final product.
