Updated on September 23, 2010

Bedroom color schemes

What colors should i use in my bedroom to help me relax and sleep better? That is a question that many of us ask ourselves at one point or another. After all the bedroom is the room of our dreams and thus the most important room of the house so you need to give it proper attention, think well of the atmosphere you want to achieve in that room and the activities you are going to undergo there. Once you have decided you can easily pick one of the following bedroom color schemes and create a perfect match to your personality and goals.

Popular bedroom paint colors and their meanings

1. Blue and green - both are very relaxing colors that remind you of nature: green vegetation, blue sky, water. These are truly relaxing colors that help you chill out after a hard day's work. No wonder we find these bedroom color schemes in adult people's bedrooms so often.

2. Black and white - black gives the impression of a tight space, making the room feel smaller, which may seem depressing as it doesn't do well for the light in the room. White on the other hand has the opposite effect, making the room seem bigger and brighter. Some people might not like colors so much and try to achieve a balance through the use of black and white, which can also have a yin and yang meaning.

3. Bright purple - As the color of lavender, purple calms you while you at the same time takes you away to the realm of imagination. Bright purple is a great color for summer. You can also use scented lavender candles or real flowers to help you have a deep and restful sleep.

4. Red and yellow - both are lively, active colors. These are well suited for rooms where you spend most of your time or participate in most of your activities. They aren't recommended for a bedroom because they won't allow for such a good night's rest. Of course you can combine both yellow and red with other colors and create bedroom color schemes than can liven up your room. Or better yet buy red or yellow bed sheets to give the bedroom that spot of color and energy it sometimes needs.

5. Turquoise - it can help you calm down enough when you're stressed to be able to sleep, it's a non-aggressive color that will make you sleep better and hopefully only dream about the sea, ocean or sky.

6. Orange and Brown - orange and brown in your bedroom color schemes will give you all the energy required for an entire day. A bedroom using paint of these two colors will be very dynamic and will give you all the adrenaline you need. These two particular colors also won't hinder your sleep that much, at least not as much as red and yellow, so you will still be able to get a good night's rest.
