Painting Ideas to Give Your Bedroom a Lift!
When it comes to setting the right mood, color is the king. Even more so in the bedroom, which by the way, is considered among the most simply designed places in your home. If you look around your space, you will notice that your kitchen is filled with utensils, the living room is occupied with furniture and entertainment appliances, even your bathroom is designed with function and space efficiency in mind. Your bedroom, most likely sparse, is the one place that is begging for the right mood setting color.
“Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve. Thoughts are things! And powerful things at that, when mixed with definiteness of purpose, and burning desire, can be translated into riches.” ~ Napoleon Hill
Here are a few ideas to consider when taking the time to choose the right colors for your bedroom walls, floors, ceiling, and accessories:
Light Colors Make Small Spaces Look Bigger:
You may be aware that light colors make smaller spaces seem larger; this does not mean that you need to choose white or tan. You can use many different soft tones to create an open and airy space. If you are among those who like color, then go for pastels or muted shades of colors like orange, blue, green, or yellow. Choosing soft colors like silver, gray, and light brown will give your bedroom a sophisticated look and you can bring in color with different accessories.
Use Natural Color to Give Your Bedroom a Relaxing Look:
Your bedroom should be a place where all your worries fall away. If you are looking to give your bedroom that somber and peaceful look then choose soft shades that are abundantly found in nature. For instance, instead of choosing plain white choose a shade of creamy eggshell. This would make your bedroom a relaxing space without all the anxieties of the day. If you like more color then go for hushed shades of blue, orange, or green.
Give it a Dramatic Look by Adding an Accent Wall:
If you want to give your bedroom a dramatic look then use a bright shade, but only on one wall. Shades of red, black, chocolate, green, or purple against the backdrop of gray or other neutral colors will definitely increase the dramatic mood of your bedroom.
