Creative Bedroom Paint Ideas

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 0 1

In considering bedroom paint ideas, you should also be conscious of the power of color as a decorating tool. You must go back to your pre-school art basics and re-learn color concepts to guide you in your paint and furniture choice.

We all know that color choice has its own psychology. There is a matching emotional response when we see a certain color. Red somehow connotes passion and fiery emotions. It gives energy to a room. But to others, it can be too overpowering.

Blue and green are cool colors that give a relaxed and restful feeling. Yellow walls give a bright and sunny feel and are perfect for children's rooms.

Purple is said to be the favorite of artists because of its darkness and rebelliousness.

You must also consider the tint and shade of a color. A color or hue, when added with white becomes a tint. Pink is a tint of red. A tint, when added with black becomes a shade. Dusty rose is a shade of pink.

In considering bedroom paint ideas, there are also warm colors and cool colors. Warm colors are those that are light and bright like reds, oranges, yellows and light blue or yellow greens.

Cool colors are dark hues and shades. Warm wall paint makes the room feel sunny and full of light. Using warm colors is also a good trick to make your room or walls look bigger and longer.

Using dark colors for the walls make rooms feel cool and smaller. A combination of dark and warm colors can be used to capture your intended proportion for your room.

You can use a color wheel to guide you in matching the paint colors of different rooms. Colors that complement each other for bedroom paint ideas are monochromatic colors (different shades of one color), analogous colors (an adventurous combination of colors right next to each other in the color wheel) and contrasting colors (colors opposite each other in the color wheel).
