When it comes to decorating the bedrooms of our home, we want harmonious work that allows us to enjoy a cozy and lively atmosphere at the same time. That is why when we look to choose painting colors to use in bedrooms, certain recommendations must be followed.

Criteria to consider when selecting paint colors to use in bedrooms

Selecting the right paint colors can create the environment you want and create the feel you expect in the environment. It´s important to choose a good color and according to the taste of the person who will stay in the bedroom since the average person spends many hours of their life in their bedroom. The following criteria will help you select the best colors for your bedroom:

The state of mind.

Each person has a different state of mind and when resting usually wants a relaxed and delicate environment. Pastel colors are very soft tones capable of reflecting tranquility and being pleasing to the eye. For this reason, pastel colors are an ideal option for quiet people who want a calm environment when resting.

For people who want a more energizing environment, bright tones are the perfect option as they are capable of providing a cheerful atmosphere. It´s important to select colors that are not so dark, despite looking for joy in the tones, it´s not advisable to paint the bedrooms in dark colors.

Amplified spaces.

One of the characteristics that many people want when decorating their bedroom is to create an environment that looks as spacious as possible since it´s harmonious to the eye. To achieve an amplified effect in your bedroom, it can be done by simply placing a wall that is a shade darker than the rest, in this way, you can achieve an amplified effect without having to drown in a dark bedroom.

A simple example to understand the above is to place two or three celestial blue walls and a turquoise blue wall, both colors are soft but the turquoise wall will stand out in the bedroom while providing an amplifying effect to it.

A calming environment full of freshness.

It´s so nice to get into bed and snuggle up with lots of sheets and pillows to cover yourself from the cold. However, in hot bedrooms, that may not be the best idea. Many experts recommend maintaining a bedroom temperature between 15 and 22 degrees Celsius to help achieve a night of deep and optimal sleep.

The cool tones contribute in a complementary way to a fresh environment, in this way, it´s easier to maintain an ideal temperature in the bedroom and thus prepare your body and mind for a restful and relaxing night.

The balanced environment between energy and relaxation.

Of course, we want a calm and relaxed bedroom to find a deep sleep and rest through the night, but it´s also important to have an energetic environment that fills us with vitality while we rest. That is why it´s vital to select shades that allow us to find the perfect balance between energy and relaxation that our body and mind need.

One of the colors capable of providing these characteristics is green, fortunately, there are a variety of shades to choose from and even to combine. The color green can generate a perfect balance in your bedroom regardless of the rest of the environment, it´s a very versatile color because it adapts to traditional and modern environments.

Tenderness and delicacy

In the case of bedroom decorations for babies and children, it´s essential to generate a warm and soft atmosphere, this can be achieved with pastel colors and very soft tones. The favorite colors for these cases are blue, pink, yellow and the combination of these.

What are the colors that never fail when painting and decorating a bedroom?

White and beige.

To many people, they will seem boring colors, but they are capable of providing multiple possibilities. They are capable of generating spaciousness in the environment and a relaxing characteristic that makes them very attractive colors. They are easy to combine with rugs, cushions, curtains, and sheets. Therefore, if you want attractive colors and without much to think about when choosing, these may be to your liking.


If you are a nature lover and you love the relaxing environment that vegetation provides, maybe the color green is perfect for your bedroom. There are a variety of refreshing and revitalizing tones to choose from, you can place a single tone on the 4 walls or combine the tones to provide greater amplitude.


If you want joy and happiness in your bedroom, you must use yellows. Whether it´s a bold, clear, airy, bright, or mixed option, you can find an enchanting environment full of vitality and creativity.


Kind and generous people identify a lot with this color, it´s a tone that symbolizes love and that inspires harmony, fun, and energy at the same time. Despite being one of the preferred colors, it´s important to consider that it should be applied in environments where there is good lighting since it tends to generate a reducing effect in the amplitude of the space.


For optimistic people who love serenity and calm, a color blue is an option that fits perfectly. It´s a color that is considered beneficial for the body and mind. Some studies show that people who rest in blue bedrooms are more productive because they are surrounded by a quiet environment in which they can have greater concentration.


For passionate and daring people the color red fits perfectly. For other people, it may seem like an unusual option but it´s impressive how the color red tends to like a lot in the bedrooms. It´s a tone capable of transmitting optimism, security, confidence, vitality, and lust, hence its choice.

What are you waiting for?

You already know the painting colors that you should use in your bedroom and the criteria that you should consider when choosing them. Fortunately, there are a variety of options to choose from but the most important thing is to identify the environment and the sensation that we want to generate and feel while we remain in that space.

Very clean and tidy painters. Robert will suggest small touches that you may not see (e.g. painting vents) which make for a nicer look to the finished look.
