In this post, I will list some wonderful bedroom makeover ideas offered by design experts from all over the world. When you’re done reading, you’ll know just which color tones to choose to give your space a facelift.
Traditionally, most people have avoided the use of dark colors in bedrooms. However, those days are gone and more and more contemporary interior designers are using dark colors on bedroom walls. In fact, using darker tones on bedroom walls has been one of the hottest design trends lately.
The rise in popularity of dark tones in bedrooms is because they can help create a relaxing and calming effect. In contrast, high energy tones such as reds, bold greens and tropical hues have a stimulating effect. Bedrooms are meant for relaxation, so it makes complete sense to choose dark tones over high energy tones. Dark tones also add a touch of personality and character and they promote a refined and sober effect.
To create a romantic or a sexy bedroom, use dark colors with a hint of hue. Charcoal, Navy, Deep Violet and Olive are all great choices for creating this style. In fact, I myself have used deep violet in my main bedroom and I must say it looks absolutely stunning.
Alternatively, you can also create a tranquil bedroom using dark colors on walls and contrasting them with light fabrics and furniture. To create this style, blue-gray and celery tones work the best. Contrast them with white furniture or linen to create a serene retreat.
You’ll find plenty of other dark colors suitable for use in bedrooms. Some color tones I’d like to recommend include Cyberspace, Krypton and Rich Navy. These gorgeous colors will allow you to give your space an all-new look.
Serene tones have been used in bedrooms since time immemorial. Such bedrooms, which make use of soft hues look both happy and serene and everyone simply loves them! While most people have opted for all-white bedrooms in the past, modern designers are using other soft and serene tones to create this effect. Of course, you can always stick to an all-white bedroom as well and still have a fantastic looking space.
Renowned interior designer, Kimberly Ayres suggests that you choose soft color combinations to create a serene bedroom. I’ve used a combination of Duck-Egg Blue paired with Champagne to create a relaxing effect in one of my bedrooms. I’ve also made use of textured patterns with this color combination to spark some excitement into my space.
This design style is pretty easy to implement and you can’t really go wrong with it. Just make sure to choose a muted shade of the hue you want and never choose a bold color. And, whatever colors you choose, always remember to include lots of white in your furnishings, furniture and décor. This will complete the overall look of your bedroom and make it more inviting and appealing.
Who doesn’t love the look of a timeless, classic bedroom? These bedrooms are defined by simplicity and they make excellent use of neutral colors. In fact, such bedrooms often look the most sophisticated and refined of all bedroom styles. And, this is a design trend which has been around for a while and it will most likely never die out.
To create a timeless bedroom, always stick to a neutral color palette. Some neutral colors which work exceptionally well to create classic bedrooms include Grant Beige, Cotton and Creamy, among others. These neutral colors also complement a whole range of other tones, so you can also get a little creative while designing your space.
And, once you’re done choosing neutral tones, you can have fun adding splashes and pops of color elsewhere. Think on the lines of adding colored bedding, cushions and pillows or add colored side tables and lamps. Splashes of color will allow you to spark some interest in an otherwise neutral looking bedroom. This is something which most experts recommend, else you run a risk of making your bedroom a little boring.
So, there you have it – these are some of the top bedroom makeover ideas based around the use of colors. Regardless of which color palette you choose from the above, you’ll be able to transform your bedroom on a budget. And, you can always experiment with your furnishings and home décor to add unique flavor and character to your space.
