If you are used to tossing and turning through the night, having your bedroom painted one of these brilliant tones might eventually help you get some shut-eye.

The look of your space is not only affected by the color of your bedroom. Color also impacts the way your room makes you feel.  It all depends on two color groups – cool and warm colors.  Warm colors stimulate interaction and creativity while warm colors are far more suited for personal spaces where you need to bring you into yourself.

According to a survey by Travelodge, participants who slept in a blue space had the best night sleep, clocking in an average of 7 hours and 52 minutes of sleep per evening. Moss green, pale-yellow, and silver came close behind.  Purple was discovered to be the least restful room color, with individuals clocking in an average of 5 hours and 56 minutes of rest per evening.

However, sterile whites and big players in the primary color field, such as red, should be avoided.  They tend to raise the blood pressure levels.  Also, it is good you opt for a flat finish over glossy because the more flatter a color is the more soft and atmospheric it is.

Nonetheless, whilst the science of color could be helpful, it is not even close to exact – personal choices play an important role, too.  Put science into consideration but ultimately pick a paint color that has a positive meaning to you.  If you’re in love with green colors, for example, an olive or moss color is probably a better option than sky-blue.

Aside paint color, put touch, sound, and scent into consideration when creating a sleep sanctuary.  On the off chance that your room is too bright, it can negatively affect melatonin – a sleep-inducing hormone, making you have a poor night rest.  Sound, be it a snoring companion or barking dog, may also disrupt your sleep (try ear plugs in case your environment is noisy).  And, finally, seriously consider the comfort of your bed and employ calming scents, like lavender, to help your body rest after what might have been a stressful day.
