Bedroom Paint Colours

Inspiration & Tips

Never a day goes by that we don’t appreciate having a private space of our own, and the right paint colour can make all the difference.

Setting the Mood with Colour

Do you want to make your bedroom a retreat where you can find some calm from the day? Cool colours, like soft blues and greens, create a sense of tranquility. Warmer but light tones provide a sense of calm and coziness.

But maybe you want a room that will invigorate and energize? Then look to more saturated, rich paint hues.

Choosing a Paint Colour for Bedroom Walls

Take inspiration for the paint colour of your bedroom from the colourful elements of your bedroom – bedding, artwork, rug.

A deep, rich wall paint colour in the bedroom envelops and cocoons.

Soft neutrals are cozy and bring out the undertones in wood furniture and floors - a best choice for a calming bedroom wall paint colour.

Not quite ready for a bolder paint colour on all of your bedroom walls? Painting just the wall behind the bed sets the focal point of the room. And a bonus – it can take the place of a headboard too.
