Most Popular Bedroom Paint Colors
Most of us tend to spend a lot of time in the bedroom. According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), the average person spends about 1/3 of the day sleeping. Studies have shown that a comfortable bedroom can promote better sleep and the paint colors you select can also influence mood and sleep patterns. When choosing the right boudoir décor for the bedroom, it boils down to personal preference in the end – after all, it’s your personal space. Fortunately, updating your bedroom into a dreamy oasis is made easy with these popular paint colors.
For the past several years, gray has been among the hottest color among neutral paint colors, and its popularity is yet to fade. Top designers have described it as having more depth than white, not to mention its sophistication and versatility. The timeless neutral gray tones in Mossy Gray by Valspar will bring a soothing effect to your bedroom making it easier to fall asleep. You could try a metallic shade like Silver Gray (Behr®) to add some originality to your bedroom space or a darker shade like Peppercorn (Sherwin Williams) to promote relaxation for a more satisfying slumber.
Blue is one of the most popular bedroom paint colors. Blue facilitates organization and cleanliness – it’s also associated with calmness and comfort. There are a variety of blue shades, each with its unique vibe. For example, Steel Blue (PPG Paints) with subdued lavender undertones is an ideal choice for creating a relaxing respite. Also, Ice Blue by Benjamin Moore® is a soothing and softer shade of blue, adding a delicate, dreamy atmosphere to your space, which makes it an ideal choice for any bedroom.
Painting bedroom walls in a calming shade of green can help promote deep relaxation and comfort. When paired with the right accessories, green can provide a calming effect and a sense of wellbeing. For a bright and uplifting mood, Aloe Vera by Benjamin Moore® is an elegant choice. If you’re in the mood for something softer and more soothing, New Mint Green (Glidden) can work wonders. Sage Garden by Behr® is calming, chic, and when paired with other complementary shades like Park Bench or Garden Cucumber, it can help capture that coveted outdoor feeling right inside your bedroom.
Purple works like magic, helping furnishings in the room to stand out perfectly chic. Like French Lilac by Benjamin Moore®, lighter shades of purple are subtle, engaging, and uplifting, without overpowering the bedroom. For those who enjoy layering, combine it with shades of white (Oxford White) and gray (Nimbus Gray) to create a luxurious master bedroom retreat.
At the end of the day, the bedroom is your personal space. Whether you want to create a bright and chic vibe, or a calm and soothing space, picking the perfect bedroom paint colors is the first step to a restful night.
