How to choose a colour scheme for your bedroom

Our bedrooms are our sanctuaries, the one place where we should feel safe, comfortable and able to get a good nights sleep. But, did you know that the colours you choose for your bedroom can have a really big impact on how the room makes you feel?

If you’re planning on redecorating your bedroom, or you feel that it’s time for a change, then you might be trying to figure out which colours to go for. The colour scheme you choose for any room can actually have a huge impact on how that room makes you feel.

When it comes to choosing colours for your bedroom, you need to consider how those colours will make you feel.

Pale colours

Pale colours can be the most relaxing and inoffensive. Create a calming space with a pale pallet.

Opt for creams, and paler shades of one or two colours for a really relaxing ambience.


You might be surprised to hear that blues are one of the best colours to choose for a bedroom. Pale blue in particular has a really calming influence and can be perfect for helping us to drift off to sleep.


Red is a popular choice for those who like the “boudair” look. If you like your bedroom to have a passionate feel, then consider rich, deep reds. Be careful with red though, it can actually over-stimulate the mind meaning that you may struggle to sleep.


Yellows can really brighten up the room, helping to cheer us up and feel more motivated when you wake.

If you’re not sure which colour will work best for you, then it’s worth trying out a few options with accessories before you start to paint the walls. No matter what colour you choose, avoid any dark shades as these will make the room feel smaller and draw the walls in.
