How to select wall shades for the bedrooms?

Selecting perfect wall shade for your bedroom can be successful when you know a bit about colour wheel and impact of colours on your overall mood as well as your body parts. There is lot more to mere painting a room than you thought!
Colour Theory plays an important role- With help of colour wheel you can divide colours into primary, secondary and tertiary shades. White, black and gray are considered as neutral shades. Colours like red, orange and yellow are considered as warm shades, thereby making the room appear more cozier and intimate. These shades are best for places that suffer from harsh winter conditions. Blue, violet and green are considered as cool shades, thereby making the room appear large than what actually it is. In general, the more intense the colour is, stronger will be its visual impact.
Color Response-Second tip that you need to consider before selecting colour response is to get some expert advice. According to the experts, colours have a strong impact on our thoughts about space. Pale shades make the room appear larger and airier, while intense or dark shades makes the room appear small and more closed in. Shades of yellow and red stimulates the feeling of energy and excitement, but also it is a symbol of anger, retaliation and irritation.
Colors in green, blue and violet produce feelings of calmness but can also make the space look dull. Keeping into account both visual and emotional effect that it creates the decorating authorities suggests you to use more restful colours.
Other things that you need to consider-Apart from color wheel and color response there are several factors that a home owner needs to consider. According to Benjamin Moore’s, Colour speaks an all together different language. It creates visual interest in the room and provokes emotional response towards the home. The intensity of colour has a great impact. For example, a shade selected in brightly lit environment will have different effect as compared to greyish light. Not only you should select paint samples carefully, but you should examine the samples on bright sunny day as well as cloudy days, in natural sunlight as well as artificial light, in daylight and in evening. The look of paint in artificial light is particularly important for bedrooms. What looks heavenly shade in sunlight may look dreary shade in night. Selecting lavender shades or soft gray with pink shades may make the bedroom look more inviting.

Other color factors that you need to consider-In many homes, the proportion and location of the bedroom plays an important role. For examples, in homes where bedrooms are located at stubbornly dark places the color shades should be selected differently. While light shades generally add space to the room, some decorators point out to use medium shades of color for home. It will have better brightening effect and give definition to the space. Blending the medium tone green with creamy furniture would work. An accent wall, well defined accessories or other architectural features creates an undistinguished home space. Medium to strong color interact effectively with neutral shades to produce strong sense of light.
