Painting Ideas for Your Bedroom

Is your bedroom the relaxing sanctuary you really crave? Or is it the last place in your home to get a little decorating attention? For many homeowners the bedroom falls to the bottom of the priority list. After all, when company comes over you can just shut the door.

We understand the urge to decorate the more visible parts of your home, but your bedroom is the first room you see in the morning and the last one you see at night. Why not give this space extra attention so you can start and end your day with a great view?

Creating an Inviting Bedroom with Paint

If you asked around, you would probably get a lot of different answers as to what makes a bedroom feel relaxing and inviting. Do you like darker bedrooms that help you capture every possible moment of sleep or would you prefer to wake up in a bright space flooded with sunlight?

Restricting your room’s color palette is an easy way to create a calming environment. You can explore a single color through paint, furnishings, and textiles. We’ve shown an example of a room decorated in creams, but the big advantage to monotone rooms is that even bolder colors seem more subdued when they aren’t in competition with other colors.

Do you long for a bedroom you can curl up in and feel extra cozy? Painting your walls dark gray is the perfect way to make your space feel like a sanctuary. Glossy white trim can add light and contrast to your space to keep it from feeling too heavy.

You might find that striking a balance between light and dark painted walls gives you the best of both worlds. The accent wall helps to ground the bed in this long room, and continuing the gray paint color onto the ceiling keeps the white walls from making the space feel too cold. This is a great example of how interior paint can be used to visually lower a ceiling to create a greater sense of intimacy.
