Kids’ bedrooms generally offer greater freedom with brighter colors and combinations, but it can be daunting to deviate from the normal palette of off-whites and beiges. Fortunately, you can steer clear of common bedroom design mistakes with these painting tips from Browder Painting Company.
Cool and Warm Colors
Basic color theory splits the color spectrum into warm and cool categories. Warmer colors cover reds, oranges, yellows, and browns, and tend to evoke feelings of stimulation. Cool colors include blues and greens and tend to evoke feelings of relaxation and concentration. Keep in mind that warm colors jump out more easily than cool colors. Depending on how you want to change the “mood” of the room, cooler colors tend to make a room feel larger while warm colors will make the same space seem more inviting and cozy. Of course, there are exceptions to every rule, and the effects of warm and cool colors can change dramatically with different hues and finishes.
Mixing and Matching
Depending on hue and saturation, most colors can be paired together even if they don’t strictly correspond to complementary or analogic patterns on a color wheel. When combining colors, it is generally advisable to stick to two or three; any more colors than that can be visually distracting or even gaudy in a smaller space. Of course, it’s always helpful to look at online galleries for bedroom design ideas.
