Tips To Choose A Bedroom Colour Scheme

When you’re decorating your home, you want the colour scheme to not only reflect your character, but also make you feel a certain way.

The bedroom is arguably the most important room of the house. You always want to make sure that it’s a room you enjoy time in because you feel the most at home and comfortable there. At Decor Blinds, we dedicate our expert time to helping you make the most out of your intimate space.

Below are some tips on how to choose a colour scheme for your bedroom.

Incorporate Colour Psychology

Colour psychology is, by definition, the study of how certain hues affect a human emotion or situation. Each colour can give off a positive or negative feeling, depending on the type of person and what is going on in their lives.


Effects of the Colour Red

Red is a physical colour. Positively, it can induce feelings of physical courage, strength, warmth and excitement. Negatively, it can represent anger or rage, defiance and strain. It is a bold colour for a bedroom, but if used right, and sparingly, can be incredibly striking.

Effects of the Colour Blue

Blue is an intellectual colour that can positively convey emotions of serenity, trust and communication – perfect feelings for a bedroom. On the flipside, it can also negatively represent coldness or aloofness, so think about the tones of blue you want to use, and the feeling you wish to invoke.

Effects of the Colour Yellow

An emotional colour, yellow has just as much of a chance of making you feel creative, friendly and optimistic as it can make you feel depressed, anxious and irrational, so consider your yellow tones carefully and pay attention to how they make you feel.

Effects of the Colour Green

Negatively, green can make you feel bored or stagnant, but the positives are worth it. Balance, harmony, universal love and restoration, it’s an utterly soothing colour, and that’s why green is the colour for the heart chakra.

If you want to induce real tranquillity, it is also a good idea to include the colours that relax you the most in your blinds or curtains. Roller blinds are stylish and versatile, and they can come in a broad range of colours, while not taking up too much space.

What to do if you have a small room

If you have a small bedroom, here are a couple of tips to make your intimate space not quite so intimate:

Dark colours low, light colours high

Never paint the walls of a small room with dark colours. You will instantly feel suffocated and like the walls are closing in on you. It’s best to keep the darkest colours as a rug or carpet and leave the walls a lighter hue. Even the curtains or blinds should be minimal in depth of colour.

Utilise the windows

Allowing natural light into your room will make all the difference. If you have a small room, using blinds instead of curtains is a great way to create the illusion of space. Roller blinds offer the same amount of coverage as thick curtains, and Venetian blinds are perfect for a simple light barrier that won’t take up too much space.
