Whether you are renovating an old apartment or building a new house, selecting the colors that will suit the different rooms in your house is a decision that you will have to face.
You will think that this is a very easy process but you are wrong. With so many hues to choose from and a wide range of factors to take into consideration, the process of selecting paints colors for bedrooms can be quite daunting.
But not to worry too much, this post will help to simplify the process. So let’s dive right in
Consider Natural Lighting
Lighting is a very important factor when it comes to selecting bedroom paint colors. You might think that blue paint is just “blue paint.” But you will be surprised to see that the shade you get when exposed to natural light is quite different from what you observed on paper.
To choose a color that you will be happy with, consider the amount of natural light that your room gets. To be on the safer side, get a sample and paint a square on the wall. Then observe how the color changes in different light conditions throughout the day.
The Size of the Room
The color of your bedroom can create an illusion of more or less space. So you can either use it to make the room appear to be larger or otherwise, depending on your objective.
For a normal sized room, white or offwhite colors can create a sense of airiness. If you have a smaller than normal room and wish to make it visually expanded, dark colors can help to blend the edges. This will hide the dimensions of the room, make it invisible for the eye to spot the real size of the room.
On the other hand, if you have an overly large room and wish to draw the room in, choosing darker colors can help to make the room look a bit smaller and less airy or open.
The Color of Your Furnishings
If it’s a new home and you have plans to purchase brand new furniture items, then you can go ahead and choose the colors of your choice. Then you can buy furnishings that suit the color of your walls.
However, if you are renovating, chances are you already have furniture items that you have been using. In this is the case, then you should consider how the colors you are choosing will match the furnishings you have. But be careful to avoid over-matching the colors.
