Want a good night’s sleep?
There are many little things that you can do to ensure you get your much needed rest, such as painting your bedroom walls the right colour. Find out which colours to use in your bedroom to help you relax and recharge after a busy, stressful day.
The right “colour therapy” in the bedroom will make a visible difference to your day and life.
People with blue bedroom walls tend to get the best night’s sleep and wake up feeling positive and happy. This is due to the calming, cooling and relaxing qualities of blue, which are said to slow the heart rate, reduce blood pressure and help combat headaches. Choose sky blues or navy blues. Electric blues are more rejuvenating and invigorating.
White is associated with peace and tranquillity. Its simplicity helps to clear the mind and refresh the soul. Avoid very bright whites which can lead to headaches. Choose soft whites which are very relaxing and calming for the mind, body and soul.
Green is a balancing colour that soothes and relaxes us both physically and mentally. There are so many shades of green – bright greens are invigorating. Soft and dull greens like moss green or olive green are recommended for the bedroom to make it more calming and relaxing.
Pink is emotionally soothing and calming. It relieves the feeling of loneliness and depression and brings an air of optimism and happiness. Choose this colour for your bedroom to create a positive atmosphere.
Yellow is a bright, uplifting colour which also stimulates the mind. This is a popular colour for the bedroom as it creates a great space illusion. But, too much yellow will have your mind working overtime, so it might be best to stick to soft buttery tones if you want to get more rest.
Colours can also be added to your bedroom with furniture, decor accessories and bed linen to complement the colour of your walls. Happy Painting.
