How to choose your bedroom colours
Bedroom colour ideas
Colour schemes are combinations of colour that work well together and balance out a space. Understanding how these colour combinations work can help you create different moods for your bedroom.
Here are a few examples of some popular colour schemes to help you get started.
White and neutrals
The clean look of a white and neutral colour scheme can help open up the space in your bedroom. Adding warm neutral hues can make the space feel more inviting, while cool neutrals can add layers and depth inside your home.
Greens and blues
Sitting next to each other on the colour wheel, green and blue work together to create a harmonious scheme. Both naturally calming and relaxing colours, this palette can help turn your bedroom into a space that is perfect for rest and rejuvenation.
Browns and greys
Brown and grey are both neutral colours, so they naturally pair together in a room. Grey is a versatile colour that adds a soft and serene touch while earthy brown tones can bring a sense of cosiness and warmth to the room.
A pop of colour
A feature wall is a great way to add a bit of colour and personality to the room. When choosing your wall, consider your space as a whole to find the best focal point. Avoid choosing a wall with windows that give the room it’s natural light, as these two focal points may clash.

Time to paint
For a smooth finish, lay-off your wall with an unloaded roller and roll it from top to bottom of the wall in a straight line. Then slightly go over the same spot and repeat across the wall to remove any streaks.
