  • The Psychology Behind Colour Schemes for Bedrooms

    loft beds with desk

    Throughout society, colours have various connotations: red for danger or stop, green means go and so on. Most people will have a favourite colour and that is generally indicative of their personality; blue might suggest a steady, methodical person whereas yellow is a lively, sunny disposition. Colour does impact our mood and thoughts, so it deserves careful consideration when it comes to decorating your home. Specialist retailer, Clever Clicker provide their expert opinion to help ensure you create a space that is both physically and psychologically friendly.

     

    Getting the colour right

     

    Of course, it’s your home and it ought to reflect your personality, but there are colours that are better suited to some rooms than others, and there are lots of differences in tones and hues. Colour can affect your well-being, so spending a little time thinking about it and how to use it in your home can set up your day. As your bedroom is the place where you wake up every day and the last room you see at night, it’s arguably the most important to get right.

     

    For most people, the bedroom needs to be relaxing and tranquil. You need to be able to sleep easily, so the colour scheme should promote restfulness and serenity. Avoid bright shades of any colour in large quantities - accents such as cushions or flowers are fine - and instead take it down a tone or two, and already the room will feel calmer. Adding different textures as well as colours can make the whole scheme more interesting.

     

    Using the right colours in the right rooms

     

    Reds, oranges and yellows are all vibrant, lively colours that are much harder to make work in a bedroom. They promote energy, which makes them better suited to social spaces such as living or dining rooms.

     

    The most flexible way to decorate is to go neutral. Think creams, whites and taupes and then add personal touches with colour in blankets, pictures and other accessories. With a blank canvas such as this, it’s not difficult to update with the season.

     

    Creating a calm environment

     

    If you prefer a more permanent scheme, don’t underestimate the power of green. Said to be the most restful colour, it mixes cheery yellow with refreshing blue and has a calming effect that is perfect for the bedroom and allows you to unwind.

     

    Blue too can be calming, especially when used as the main colour in a scheme, which is why it is often picked for bathrooms, though it can be quite cold so choose the hue with caution. Go too dark and you risk sparking sadness in the brain, but too light might be chilly. Lilacs or lavenders are a safe bet to balance the warmth and relaxation.
