How to Pick the Perfect Color for Every Room In Your House

Color choice is an important consideration in every room of your house. After all, the color you pick will have a big psychological impact on how people feel when they’re in the room. That’s a crucial fact, because sometimes your favorite color isn’t the best fit for your bedroom wall. For example, you might love the bright red that’s on your favorite blouse, but painting that same color on your bedroom walls could make it difficult to fall asleep at night.

The good news is you don’t need to have a degree in Psychology to know which colors to use when painting the rooms in your house. A little knowledge of how colors impact us makes the selection process relatively simple.

Finding the perfect color

Here’s what you should consider for each room, as well as a few suggestions:

  1. Bedroom: You spend most of your time sleeping in this room, so you want something peaceful, something that’ll make it easy to catch some Zs. Gray, light blue, light green, and lavender are all excellent choices for drifting off into dreamland.
  2. Dining room: Want to whet your appetite? Go for yellows, oranges, and reds, colors that are exciting. Think about it: There’s a reason so many fast food companies use these colors in their logos! Turquoise has also been found to stimulate appetite. Avoid darker colors, which are reminders of spoiled food and suppress hunger.
  3. Kitchen: Yellow and red are good colors in the kitchen as well, if you want something to get you hungry. Turquoise may also sharpen your hunger, as well as make you more relaxed. Want to get inspired to eat healthy? Cover your walls in an earthy green. Also worth noting: The lighter your walls, the more light they’ll reflect. This may make it easier to see during meal prep!
  4. Living room: The best colors for this room will depend on how you plan to use the space. If you’re looking for a lively, fun environment for entertaining, try an adventurous orange or green. Cooler colors, like blue or gray, will have a calming effect.
  5. Bathroom: Most of us like our bathrooms to be quiet, peaceful places. Gray, white, beige, and other neutral colors do well here. Want to liven it up? Change the wall color to one of your favorites, or splash a bright color on your trim.
