How to Choose a Color Scheme
for a Bedroom

Whether you’re redecorating your bedroom or want to introduce some theme, choosing the right color scheme is essential. After all, what kind of impression do you want to create? What images and feelings will it bring forth?


What Kind of Atmosphere Do You Want to Create in Your Bedroom?

When it comes to picking the right color scheme for your bedroom, you need to be mindful of how it will create the right atmosphere. The color of your walls and flooring can play a big role in setting the mood in your room. However, you can also choose to add some color accents around the room such as throw pillows, pillows, bed sheets, and wall decals. Another important thing to take note of is the lighting in your room.

Choosing a color for your walls that works well against the light of the day does not necessarily mean the same thing when it’s dark outside.

Also, be mindful of the lighting in your room as you don’t want to create an environment that’s too dark or too bright. It’s best to strike a good balance between the two.

Decide on the Primary Color for the Walls

The primary color for the walls in your bedroom should be related to the colors in the rest of the room. To create the right atmosphere, the wall color should reflect the same mood as the rest of the room whether it’s a happy or moody atmosphere.

This can be tricky when you have a variety of décor in your room. For instance, if your bedroom has colorful wall décor such as prints, paintings, and blankets, you can choose a wall color that complements the same colors.

Alternatively, if your room has a darker décor, then you can choose a wall color that complements the room without making it feel too overwhelming. When deciding on the primary color for your walls, you can pick a single color or a mix of colors.

It’s best to go for a single color if your room has a lighter décor as this will create a more homogeneous look. You can also go for a mix of two or three colors if you want a more eclectic look. Adding an accent wall can add some interest and depth to your space.

Remember, however, that a color scheme that’s too diverse could end up looking messy. It’s best to go for a color scheme that’s not too complex and has a cohesive look and feel.

Choose Accent Colors for Furniture and Accessories

Furniture such as beds, tables, chairs, wardrobes, and bookcases should complement the color scheme in your room. Since you’re choosing the wall color, these items should, of course, come in the same color. 

But don’t stop there. 

You can also add accent pillows in the same color or a similar color to create a more harmonious look. Apart from items such as beds, tables, and chairs, you can also add wall decals and throw pillows that are in the same color as your wall. 

When picking a color for your wall, don’t forget to pick a color that also works well with your accessories and furniture.
