6 Best Paint Colours for Every Room, Part 1
Colours have a big impact on the style and moods of each room in our homes. So it makes sense to be particular with the colour you choose in each room to enhance your quality of life at home.
To help you select the perfect colour for every room, we have been sharing the psychology behind some of the more popular paint colours on our social media. This blog post breaks down each of these colours and the impact they have.
1. Best for Chill Spots: Purple
Purple is often associated with imagination, regality, high ideals and wisdom. It provides a calming effect when used in rooms and is the perfect colour if you need a 'chill' spot in your house.
2. Best for Bedrooms: Deep Blue
Blue is a colour often found in nature, which is probably why it is most commonly described as a calm and serene colour. Blue calls to mind feelings of calmness or serenity. It is often described as peaceful, tranquil, secure, and orderly. This makes it perfect for bedrooms as it provides a calm feeling to rest your head.
3. Best for Living Rooms: Teal
Teal blends blue's tranquil stability with green's optimism. It is the colour of restfulness and spiritual balance. Painting a room in teal encourages a calm, reflective environment and is seen as both unique and smart.
4. Best for Nurseries: Bright Green
Green is a cool colour that symbolises nature and the natural world. Perhaps because of its strong associations with nature, green is often thought to represent tranquility, good luck, health, and jealousy making perfect for a gender neutral baby room (if you don't know what you're having).
5. Best for Kitchens: Yellow
Yellow is the brightest colour of the visible spectrum. It means happiness and optimism; it is the colour of sun shining, or bright light and creativity. People often worry that yellow will be too much for a room, but then when they take the plunge they realise that it blends perfectly. If you struggle in the mornings, then having your breakfast in a bright yellow kitchen can increase your motivation and enthusiasm.
6. Best for Dining Rooms: Orange
Orange can be a very strong and energetic colour. People often describe orange as bright, happy, and up-lifting. Orange calls to mind feelings of excitement, enthusiasm, and warmth. Perfect for hosting guests.
