Keep reading to find some great ideas for a new coat that your professional painter can apply.
1. Warm Neutral Shades
It’s hard to go wrong with a neutral palette. When you go with shades of white, tan, or gray, you’ll be opting for a timeless look that will likely stay in style for decades. Choosing these shades with warm undertones can act as a great foundation for added splashes of color in your sleeping area. These tones can be perfect for complimenting colorful sheets or bedroom furniture.
You could even use this foundation to add some attractive accents. Perhaps you want to be bold and go with some striking warm colors like bright reds or yellows. On the other hand, neutral tones play well with more subtle, lighter shades of color as well. If you’re looking for a jumping-off point in your color search, a professional painter may suggest a soft eggshell white.
2. Beige and Brown
If you’re searching for colors that make a bit more of a statement, you may want to consider beiges and browns for your bedroom walls. These colors can add a natural, rustic feeling to your bedroom that will pair perfectly with the wood accents of your bedframe or dressers. Like neutral colors, these tones can act as a great foundation for the darker reds and greens that are already in your bedroom. Maybe you could even bring in a cabinet refinishing company to add a color that compliments your newly painted walls.
You may want to start your search with Sherwin-Williams’ color of the year for 2023: Redend Point. This light brown is a versatile hue that will pair well with other neutral, white tones and copper accents. If you’re looking for a lighter shade, consider the company’s Malted Milk, which is a beige color that will play nicely with any type of palette.
If you’re someone who appreciates the natural aesthetic brought by brown shades but wants to make a bit more of a statement, you’ll be glad to know that green shades have been a popular choice for years. Opening your eyes each morning to green walls can provide a calming, relaxing start to your day, as this color can evoke images of a serene forest landscape or a peaceful pasture. Maybe this shade could even persuade you to add some greenery to your bedroom with an attractive jade plant or a striking bonsai tree!
You may be surprised to learn that just like the colors mentioned previously, green can act as a great foundation for distinctive accents. Greens can pair nicely with deep reds, neutral whites, or even bright oranges and blues. You may want to consider Sherwin-Williams’ Evergreen Fog, which provides a versatile structure to the palette of any room.
Although greens can be a great color choice, you may be the type of person looking for something a little bolder. If this is the case, then you should opt for reds. A bright red will bring a passionate, energetic flavor to your room, which can start you off on the right foot when you wake up each morning. However, if you want this color but desire a more understated hue, you can also opt for a darker, muted red.
Start considering reds by comparing your current color with Sherwin-Williams’ Red Barn, which provides a soft, subtle red with an orange undertone. If you’re looking for something a bit darker, take a look at the company’s Carnelian tone, which can even appear brown in the right lighting. On the other end of the spectrum is Pantone’s 2023 color of the year: Viva Magenta. This bright, vivacious red is perfect for anyone looking to make a bold statement for their bedroom. Be sure to let your professional painter know exactly which tone you’re going for!
Are you looking for a bold choice with a cooler tone? Consider blues. Just like green, this color can provide you with a soothing mood as you begin your morning routine. For a muted blue, take a look at Behr’s Adirondack Blue. For something more colorful, you may want to go for something like Behr’s Treasure Map, which evokes the open ocean.
Blue is known for its ability to play well with accents. It contrasts superbly with whites and even silvers. If you want to get especially daring with your color choices, you may want to consider pairing it with its opposite: orange. This can provide a striking but appealing aesthetic to your bedroom.
Although this choice won’t provide the color of a red or blue, it can make more of a statement than any other hue. Just like a black-and-white film can evoke feelings of class and nostalgia, so too can a monochromatic color scheme. You could even match your sheets and furniture to complete the monochromatic look.
Even though there are only two tones, black and white, you have a wealth of options. Behr’s Nano White paired with its Black will create a stark contrast. Its warmer Crystal Cut with Poppy Seed will provide a more subtle look.
Not only can you choose different hues of these colors, but you can also decide how your professional painter will apply them. White walls with black accents are a good way to go, but maybe you want to be a bit bold with black walls accented with white. Either way, your painting company will be able to make your monochromatic scheme fit your unique taste.
If it isn’t already clear, today’s trends provide you with a wealth of options. Whether you’re looking for a humble beige or a louder red color scheme, you can be confident that you’ll be up-to-date with current trends. That way, if you’re looking to sell anytime soon, your home’s bedroom will be ready for the critical eyes of homebuyers.
