How colour can transform a room

Whether you are furloughed or working from home right it is fair to say a chunk of the population are spending more time at home. It is amazing how colour can transform the look and feel of a room too. Does your home need an area that is more calming or relaxing? The right choice of colour can influence the whole way you feel about a space.

Taking care of our mental health is as important as ever right now and redecorating your home can be a great way to create tranquil spaces.

One of the best ways to create relaxing areas in your home is to choose a calming colour scheme and it’s the little changes that can make a big difference.

After all, the rooms in our homes are wearing many hats at the moment, so we want them to have as much personality as possible. Let’s take a look at two of the rooms we are supposed to relax in.

Your Bedroom

When we’re in our bedroom, we want it to be like a sanctuary of calm. Colour plays a big part in that. This is especially true of greens. People are looking for the soothing effect of this palette. Its earthiness brings the outside in, distracting us from our phones and devices in the process.

Blue has similarly positive effects on the mind and the body. As the colour of the sky, ocean and sleep, it invokes rest and can cause your body to produce chemicals that are calming and exude feelings of tranquillity.

Your Bathroom

Bathrooms were once a space used purely as somewhere clean, but they have evolved to become a place where we go to relax and feel rejuvenated, too.

Bringing the spa to your house, you could say. With this in mind, the way we decorate our bathrooms can have a huge impact on how we start and end our day.

Bold shades such as teal or red will definitely give you a much-needed caffeine boost in the morning whilst hues of yellow is one that will lift spirits and when teamed with accents of white or grey add a contemporary twist. Dusky pinks will generate a more restful vibe, and don’t need to be too feminine. Consider the amount of natural light your bathroom receives and pick a tone that enhances the cool or warm feeling you need to enhance.
