How to Choose the Best Colors for Your Master Bedroom

Your bedroom is the most personal space in your home, so there should be a good balance between relaxing colors and your personal preferences. If you’re looking to update your bedroom’s color, the interior remodeling contractors at DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of East Georgia have tips on how to choose the right color palette.

Keep a Good Visual Flow

If your master bedroom was built within the past few years, chances are it’s more like a master suite, complete with an en suite (adjoining) bathroom. You need a good visual flow between these areas without necessarily using the same colors in both spaces. The bedroom is meant to be a relaxing space, and you don’t want a visual “shock” every time you move from one space to the next.

This means you need to take your existing bathroom colors into consideration, particularly if the bathroom or other adjoining room has materials that can’t be painted over, like marble or brick. Of course, if both the master bedroom and en suite are part of a bigger home renovation project, then you have flexibility to choose complementary colors.

The Psychological Primaries

Colors affect moods. Some induce relaxation, others creativity, while others incite activity. There are four psychological primaries you should keep in mind:

  1. Red — Red incites activity and is typically used in gyms and similarly active places. It also triggers stimulation and appetite, which is why it’s a favorite in the fast food industry. Muted or darker shades of red, such as burgundy, are suitable for bedrooms. 
  2. Blue — Blue calms the mind, which makes it an ideal choice for bedrooms.
  3. Yellow — Yellow affects emotions, ego and self-confidence. Consider yellow as a complementary color if your master bedroom has an adjoining home office.
  4. Green — Green achieves a good balance between the calming effects of blue and the creative drive bolstered by yellow.

If your master bedroom includes a neutral color such as white, gray or black, consider balancing color with furnishings instead. If you are considering a master bedroom remodel, you can benefit from your remodeler’s expertise in color selection.
