If you’re one of the few who didn’t spend the lockdown time redecorating, the chances are you’ve had enough of the same four walls. The longer you spend inside, the more you start to notice the areas which need a bit more TLC, and you’ll probably find the urge to start repainting. One of the easiest places to start is your bedroom.
Bedroom furniture tends to be neutral in color or wooden, lending itself nicely to whichever color you decide to paint the walls. Simply choosing a paint color and changing up a couple of soft furnishings is a cost-effective way of transforming your bedroom.
So, what are the most popular colors for bedrooms in 2020?
Light Lilac is a soft way to transform the feel of your room, without overdoing it on the color. When you choose a pastel wall color, it’s easily complemented by furniture and you can add more personality to the room with contrasting cushions or features. A soft purple room is a place of calmness and tranquility, an ideal place to come home to after a long day.
Homeowners tend to avoid using white in bedrooms, particularly when it’s the only wall color, as they want to avoid a sterile look. Instead, a light, taupe shade offers neutrality while also being warm. Add pops of color with furnishings and features to ensure the room doesn’t look too bland.
Blush pink is a specific shade of pink that has grown in popularity over the last couple of years. The pick of the moment is Sherwin-Williams’ Romance paint. Speaking to Consumer Reports, Ashley Banbury, senior color designer for HGTV Home by Sherwin-Williams said: “Our view on neutrals has expanded outside the typical gray and beige, and we have begun to embrace colorful shades that are soft and welcoming.”
From dark grays to light grays to blue-grays, gray is the color of the moment. And we can understand why. It’s versatile, it’s neutral and it’s also a great option for those who like a more modern aesthetic. Pair with warm curtains and statement furniture to inject personality into your bedroom.
From kitchens to living areas to bedrooms, navy blue is having a moment. One of the most effective ways to transform your bedroom is by painting one wall – or opposing walls – a statement color, while the others remain neutral. Navy blue on an accent wall is perfect for sophistication, however, only paint all walls a dark color if you have a lot of natural light.
The most important element of any painting job, is that you like the color. If you’re deciding to repaint your bedroom, it’s always worth considering a professional painter to ensure the job is done to the highest standard possible.
