Getting your bedroom painted can be exciting, whether you want to refresh an old look or go for a whole new style. However, choosing the right colours can be challenging. This guide takes you through the process of choosing paint colours for your bedroom, ensuring that you make the right choice.
Choose an Interior Design Style
The first step is to choose an overarching style for your bedroom, as this will help you to choose colours. You might choose to have your bedroom's style match the rest of your home, or you might choose something to fit the furniture you already have. However, getting your bedroom painted might also be a chance to try something new. If you aren't sure what to choose, choose a style that will give you a good idea of what colours to choose. For example, you might go for deep, rich colours in a traditional bedroom, while a coastal bedroom would call for a palette of blues, whites, and greys.
Figure out a Colour Palette
Having chosen a style, the next step is to work out the colour palette you want to use. Work out how many colours you need. For example, do you want every wall to be the same colour? How many extra colours do you need for windowsills, radiators, doors, and skirting boards? When you've figured that out, you can come up with some colour combinations that might work, and choose some shades that suit your style and tastes. Choose a couple of shade combinations, as something that looks great on the website might be less attractive in real life. If you aren't sure about your palette or how many colours you'll need, you can ask your painters for advice.
Order Some Testers
When you've chosen a few shades that might work well, you should try to order some testers and try them out. Paint a patch of each tester colour onto your bedroom wall, ensuring that you paint the blocks of colour next to each other so you can easily see if the colours complement each other well. Try to look at your walls at different times of day, as sometimes colours that look great in the morning sun don't look the same under artificial light or in the evening. If you aren't sure about your colours, try ordering more testers to try or switching up your colour combinations. If you like the colours, it's time to call your painters and get started.
By choosing a style you love, using that style to choose a couple of potential colour palettes and using paint testers to make your final choice, you can ensure that you choose colours you'll love for years to come. After you've made your final choice, contact a painting service in your area to bring your ideas to life.
