You no doubt spend a lot of time in your master bedroom, but this may be one of the last rooms you pay attention to when it comes to sprucing up. You may not put as much time or effort into this space compared to rooms that guests will see. However, you deserve a sanctuary and a retreat. If your master bedroom is looking dated, dull, drab, or it simply doesn’t appeal to your style anymore, it may be time to hire a professional painting contractor to change up the entire look and feel of the space. According to House Grail, after painting a room, 88% of homeowners express a desire to stay home more often, and you’ll likely enjoy your master bedroom much more after completing this project. There are many trendy paint colors to select from for your master bedroom. However, if you want your space to look classic and timeless, you may be looking for more traditional colors. Here are nine perennial shades to consider for your master bedroom.
One of the most classic colors that you can paint your walls is white. However, if pure white is too bright for you, you can select off-white variations, such as eggshell or cream. White is one of the best colors for small and dark spaces. It helps to reflect light, maximizing the space in the room and making it feel brighter than it really is. This is also a great option for those who have unique bedroom furniture. For instance, if you have a blue velvet headboard or silver metal furniture, white is the perfect backdrop to ensure your furniture is the star of the show.
A time-honored color that is currently having a trendy moment is gray. Gray is currently considered to be a modern color, but it is also a classic and timeless hue that pairs especially well with black bedroom furniture. One of the most unique elements about gray is that you can select a soft or light gray color to help make small spaces feel larger, or you can select a dark charcoal gray color to make large bedrooms feel more intimate or dramatic. Regardless of the size of your bedroom and the type of lighting it has, there is the perfect shade of gray out there for you.
Beige, tan, and taupe are all traditional and classic colors that can be used in any style of bedroom. If you plan on selling your home in the near future, a professional painting contractor may recommend that you paint the bedroom using one of these lighter shades of brown. This is because these colors are neutral, and they will work with just about any color scheme or color palette. Buyers don’t want to paint after buying a home, so they tend to look for spaces that have neutral paint colors that will work with the furniture and bedding they already have, and beige, tan, and taupe fit the bill.
4. Sage Green
You may not realize this, but different colors evoke different emotions. Green is a mix of yellow and blue. Yellow evokes cheeriness, while blue evokes tranquility. When mixed together to create green, the color brings to mind feelings of peacefulness and renewal. This is exactly how you want to feel when you wake up in your bedroom. While there are many shades of green paint that you can choose for your space, sage green is one particular traditional color you should consider. It’s a color that you see in nature, while also being soft and soothing.
If you’re looking to make your bedroom feel dramatic, you want to select a dark and rich color. One of the most classic dark colors for bedrooms is navy blue. Navy blue is ideal for large spaces, as a darker color can make a room feel a little smaller than it is. Additionally, since it is dark, it will help your space to feel naturally darker, which may be ideal if you are trying to regulate your sleep schedule. If you love the color navy but have a smaller room, consider having a professional painting contractor paint an accent wall navy blue or add navy blue stripes. This creates a nice contrast between dark and light, ensuring the color doesn’t overwhelm your room.
Another color that you may want to consider if you’re looking for a dramatic or bold color choice in your room is burgundy. Burgundy is a deeper shade of red that almost has some purple hues to it. These purple undertones help to prevent the color from being too bright and instead make it dark and broody. Burgundy can be an elegant color, or it can be one that is dramatic and bold. Once again, if you have a smaller space, you can paint an accent wall, stripes, or even a portion of the wall in this color, as it can be a lot to paint on all of the walls in a small master bedroom.
7. Buttercream Yellow
Yellow is a bright and cheery color, but rich and bold yellows are usually too overwhelming for a master bedroom. If you love yellow but want something softer, consider a pastel yellow, such as classic buttercream. Buttercream is a mix between cream and yellow, giving you just enough yellow to make your space feel warm. This is a great color for smaller or darker rooms, as the color helps to brighten up a space and make it feel lighter and more airy. It is also a great choice to help you wake up and start your day off on a bright and cheery note.
Terracotta is an orangish-red clay that has been used for pottery, tiles, and house building for centuries. The color is extremely traditional, especially in Spanish or Mediterranean-style homes. If you are looking for a warm tone to paint on your walls that pairs well with many other bold colors, including green, yellow, and blue, terracotta may be the ideal color to have a professional painting contractor apply to your walls.
If you want your master bedroom to have a distinctly feminine look and feel, blush is the more mature version of pink. Blush is subtle, yet dusky, helping to add just the right touch of color to a master bedroom. Blush walls pair well with white, cream, metal, or wood-tone furniture. It’s also a great color if you’re going for a shabby chic look in your space. If you love the color pink or have always dreamed of having a pink room, blush is the perfect shade to ensure your master bedroom doesn’t end up looking like a baby’s nursery.
There are many changes you can make to alter the appearance and the look of your master bedroom. You can change up your bedding, update your window coverings, or even purchase new furniture. However, nothing is as impactful as painting your room a new color. The walls take up a lot of space in your bedroom, and a new paint color can be seen everywhere in your room. If you aren’t completely satisfied with the appearance of the room, a professional painting contractor can work with you to select a color that will enhance the space and provide the look and feel that you desire.
