How to choose paints for your bedroom

Paint comes in a variety of sheens as well as in either oil or latex. Latex paint is the most commonly and preferred paint type to use because of its ease of clean up and long lasting durability. However, oil based paint is great for priming real wood moldings and trims. Once you choose what kind of paint you need the question is: Which color should you choose? that depends on your main goal. For example, If you are in the process of selling your house, I recommend selecting an off-white or a very soft neutral color as the choice for walls. This will allow the buyer to easily cover the wall with their choice of color and will give your rooms a brighter and clean appearance. Many people might think that painting the walls beige is a good idea because it’s a neutral, well I totally disagree. Beige is a beautiful color but you need to be careful, the wrong shade of beige can look muddy, mustard or greenish depending on the undertones and lighting. Luckily,  nowadays neutral colors are not simply beige,  gray and greige ( gray with beige) are also beautiful neutral options.  If you want to stick to neutrals here are some beautiful options that won’t disappoint you.

In the other hand if you’re looking to personalize your space the options are endless. In my opinion as we’ve grown up we still make decorating decisions based on how we want a room to make us feel, usually we want our bedrooms to make us feel relaxed. After all, when the world out there is such a crazy place, it’s nice to have a calm space to decompress at the end of the day. Let’s start with light color choices such as soft blues, soft mints, lavenders, blush, soft yellows and light grays. Those  are great choices for a romantic feeling of tranquility and restfulness in a room. If you are looking for a calm ambience in your bedroom, choose lighter shades of either cool or warm colors. Use different textures in your bedding and accessories to make the room even more appealing. These are some beautiful options.

Some people feel “alive” with bolder colors, if that’s your case, by all means take the plunge. Paint your bedroom a deep turquoise, teal, navy,  or even black! Make a decision that makes your heart happy each time you wake up or go to bed. Following your taste will make you happier than following any design rule.  If this is your case these are pretty options to explore.
