The Impact of Colors to your Bedroom
There have been many discussions on the subliminal effect of colors on people. In fact, colors have been used even in sports as part of strategies to ensure a win. For example, opponents of the Hawkeyes are forced to use a pink colored locker room during games. This supposedly provides the home team with some degree of advantage because the color pink causes a person to relax. This mood can result in the opponents becoming less aggressive during the game.
It is not only pink that has an effect on the mood of people. There is a belief that an emotional response is tied to every type of hue that the human eye can perceive. This is part of the reason why the colors used for a photo frame are usually easy on the eye or neutral, so that the focus would be on the images and the message they convey. Some research results have even determined that creativity and memory retention can be increased by certain colors.
Knowing this, significant importance should be placed on the selection of bedroom paint colors to ensure that the right type of mood is enhanced. Would you want your bedroom to be relaxing or a source of romantic energy? Consider these following colors:
This color represents the element fire and is associated with passion, luxury, richness, stimulation, power, romance, love, and excitement among others. If you want to use this color for your bedroom, earthy red hues are the best choice.
For those who want to invoke prosperity and abundance, this is the appropriate color to use. It has stimulating, expansive, uplifting, warm, and happy effect on people which makes it appropriate in the living room, dining room, or even the kitchen. For the bedroom, pale or earthy shade of this color would be appropriate.
Stimulating, sociable, active, and cheerful is how this color is described. It is considered less arousing compared to red, but is more visually stimulating. This color is ideal for interior spaces because it is less intense. An earthy shade of orange can be used for the bedroom.
In deciding bedroom colors, this one is on top of almost everybody’s list. This is because aside from being characterized as secure, it is also relaxing, healing, calming, and soothing. Since it is considered as a water element, it is also used for the comfort room.
A neutral color with a quiet and calm effect, it also does not trigger much energy. To many, it can be conservative, boring, and even physically draining, which makes it an excellent choice for the bedroom. You may also consider the color cream if you feel that grey is a bit dark for your home.
