With a new year and new beginnings often comes an itch to update your home. One of the best places to begin is in the bedroom- where you will start and end every day of 2018. But paint colors aren’t just about choosing what’s most appealing at first glance. Instead, homeowners should consider the size of the space, the style of their home, and the potential to create a modern twist through an unexpected combination of colors.

  • Small Bedrooms

Many single homeowners and families face the difficulties and restrictions associated with designing for a smaller space. When the room’s size plays a role, it is best to lean toward light, bright color schemes. In the bedroom this often means implementing a light blue hue with white elements around the room to create an airy atmosphere. Without dark tones to draw the eye to where the walls meet the ceiling, the room will feel much more open and consequently larger at the same time. These light colors also draw on a beachy theme, reminding homeowners of a vacation getaway right at home.

  • The Eclectic Home

For those with an eclectic style, the best way to spruce up for 2018 is by going gray. By changing the walls to gray, this allows for specific pops of color to be repeated throughout the rest of the room. Selecting a bright yellow or green palette to go with these new walls will bring some additional light in, while also allowing the homeowner to change the decor of the room frequently with a neutral backdrop. These bursts of color can be added and swapped out at random through small but colorful furniture pieces, throw pillows, or fun picture frames. Gray tones are also welcoming to a variety of textures and time periods, allowing couples who may have conflicting styles to use their new walls to unify the space.

  • Modern Twist

For the homeowner seeking a fresh but inviting color palette for their bedroom, a mix of ochre and plum is the perfect solution. When combined with an array of brown and tan hues, this mature color scheme creates both a feeling of warmth and modernity for any room. These tones also carry a subtle contrast between warm and cool, while complementing each other to frame the room in a spa-like atmosphere. With this modern twist on color, homeowners can create a much more inviting space for 2018.
