Shades of Blue: Bedroom Paint Colours You’ll Love from a Vernon Painter
Why choose blue for your bedroom? As research has shown, it’s one of the most soothing colours on the wheel. As a Vernon painter who has painted dozens of bedrooms, I know how peaceful and calming the colour blue can be.
To help you find the blue that suits you and sends you to sleep, we’re highlighting samples of a few of the two most popular shades.
Shades of blue for the bedroom
The lightest blue
Because it is the colour of both the ocean and the sky, light blue in particular evokes tranquility. The bedroom below, painted in Benjamin Moore’s Quiet Moments, almost gives the feeling of floating in the sky. A nice feeling at the end of a hectic day.
Airy accents and trim colour help complete this look of lightness. If you have a Vernon painter in doing your bedroom walls, be sure to touch up the trim in a complementary shade—cream colours often work well with any shade of blue.
The darkest blue
There’s a reason why dark blue is one of the most popular paint colours right now. Our minds associate dark blue with knowledge, integrity, seriousness. It’s also a symbol of loyalty and trust.
Surrounded by all these sentiments through the night, a restful sleep is almost guaranteed. Notice how the bedroom below is somehow just as soothing as ‘the lightest blue,’ but in a different way?
You might be surprised to learn that blue can have a positive effect on your body, too. Blue has been proven to slow metabolism in addition to creating a sense of calm and tranquility.
Our Vernon painting company also finds that blues, unlike many other shades, are liked by both women and men as it’s considered a shade between gender neutral and masculine.
