Sleep is something that many people around the world find to be elusive. Unfortunately, it\u2019s also something that\u2019s necessary for sustaining quality of life as well as optimal health and mental well-being. In other words, it\u2019s vitally important. Oddly enough, something as simple as your bedroom color scheme can have a significant impact on just how restful your bedroom really is. Here are a few things you should know about bedroom colors, at least as far as restful sleep is concerned, before you start decorating.\r\nColors Suggest Moods\r\nOne of the most common issues people have with sleep is difficulty falling asleep due to an abundance of heat (pitta) that is built up in the body. With this in mind, it makes sense that bedrooms decorated with cool colors such as blues, greens, and even some shades of purple, would create a better mood for sleep than bedrooms decorated with warm reds, yellows, and oranges. The warmer colors may create a warm and cozy atmosphere in the room, but in the long run the warmer colors could have a significantly negative impact on the overall restfulness of the room.\r\n\r\nNot only do soothing cool colors impact the restful mood of the room, but they also serve to lower your blood pressure and your heart rate\u2014at least according to Shape Magazine. This makes it easier for you to relax and get the sleep your body requires.\r\n\r\n\r\nBedrooms are a Place for Rest and Rejuvenation\r\nYour bedroom is a room for rest. That\u2019s the primary activity that should take place in that room. Granted you want the room to be conducive to intimacy among adults, but the average adult needs about eight hours of sleep per night. With that in mind, you should decorate your bedroom in colors that leave you feeling peaceful and restful.\r\n\r\nThink of your favorite day spa. Take a mental walk around the rooms inside. What colors are the rooms where you feel most relaxed painted in? Are they bright vivid reds and deep rich purples or are they more relaxing shades of green, blue, and lavender? Even brown can be an excellent choice for relaxation and tranquility. That is, after all, what you want your bedroom to be a haven for\u2014rejuvenation for the mind, body, and spirit.\r\n\r\nIf you can\u2019t stand the thought of a bedroom without some vibrant coloring, consider including accent pieces such as pillows or artwork that you won\u2019t be able to see while lying in bed. Your bedroom, after all, should be a reflection of the people who occupy it as well. Just make sure that you take great care in colors elsewhere in the room to provide a soothing and restful atmosphere that is conducive to a good night\u2019s sleep.\r\n\r\nCheck out this colorful bedroom ideas slideshow provided by HGTV.\r\nLink to Us!\r\nIf you found this article useful and shareable, please copy and paste the following into the html code of your website or blog:\r\n\r\nLearn More about Getting a Better Night's Sleep and Good Sleep Hygiene at <a href"https:\/\/www.plushbeds.com\/blog\/bedroom\/bedroom-color-ideas\/">Plushbeds Green Sleep Blog<\/a>.
