Are you ready to give your bedroom a fresh and exciting makeover? Well, you've come to the right place. The colours you choose for your bedroom play a significant role in creating the ambience and setting the mood. So, let's embark on a rainbow journey as we explore bedroom colour ideas, schemes, and the best combinations that will turn your bedroom into a dreamy haven.
Before we look at individual colour schemes, let’s look at the science behind them. Different colours evoke various emotions and can significantly change your mood and wellbeing. Here are some common associations, do you agree with them?
Keep these ideas in mind as we explore various bedroom colour options.
Taking our cue from that list and the feelings they inspire; we’ve come up with some ideas:
The colour of love and passion, red’s an exciting choice for a bedroom if used in moderation. Deep red or burgundy as an accent wall or in bedding or flooring like these carpets can add a touch of energy to your space. Pair it with neutral colours like beige or white to balance the intensity. Or ramp up the drama with hints of clashing pink or aubergine.
If you're looking for a tranquil retreat, consider a blue colour scheme – but keep it in warm tones so it stays welcoming, not clinical. Soft blues, like pastel shades or pale aqua, create a soothing atmosphere. Combine with white or light grey to enhance the calming effect. This scheme is perfect for a bedroom where relaxation is a top priority. Our collection of blue patterned vinyl will make the floor the star of the room.
Yellow is the colour of happiness and optimism. A soft, buttery yellow can instantly lift your spirits. It works exceptionally well in small bedrooms, where it can make the space feel more open and inviting. Add touches of white or pale grey to maintain a sense of balance. We’ve several carpets in warm mustard, corn, or sand tones that will create that gorgeous warm and welcoming feeling. Or, as an alternative, go wild with an animal print that’ll always look striking.
Green is closely linked with nature and peacefulness, so it's an ideal choice for a bedroom colour scheme. Sage green, for instance, can bring a sense of freshness and harmony to your space, or go for a moodier forest green to create more drama. Complement green with wooden furniture to create a cosy, earthy feel. You’re bound to find your perfect shade in our collection of elegant green carpets.
For a bedroom fit for a king or queen, consider shades of purple. Lavender or lilac can create an elegant calming atmosphere. Or go for that chocolate-bar deep purple, particularly on the floor, to create a room to remember. Pair it with silver or gold accents to enhance the regal feel. This is a perfect choice for those who appreciate a touch of opulence.
Gray is a versatile and timeless colour that suit all styles of décor. It provides a neutral backdrop that you can pair with almost any other colour. You can use it as the main colour in your bedroom or as an accent in furniture and decor. If you want to find the perfect shade of grey carpet to sink your feet into before you climb into bed, then here are our recommendations.
