Oeps! Do you still need to furnish your bedroom? Or enjoy yourself? Very recognizable! The bedroom is usually one of the neglected children in the house. You see it often: the first floor is perfectly styled, the children’s rooms have the coolest colors and furniture, and what often comes last? Or happens snappy? Yep … the master bedroom 😉
That will soon be a thing of the past. Because after reading this home blog, you can transform your bedroom into a true sleep paradise. You can go a long way within a day!
What will all be in your bedroom? Of course a nice bed, probably a nice sliding or wardrobe anyway, and one or two bedside tables. Do you also want to be able to sit comfortably? Or ‘tuting’? Think carefully about what you want to do there, then determine your basic elements and adjust your plan of action accordingly.

What colors do you choose for your bedroom?
The influence of colors may be greater than you think. For example, did you know that red increases your appetite? And the color blue that decreases again? Colors even influence your mood: red gives warmth, arouses enthusiasm and passion, while the cool color blue, on the other hand, radiates calm and tranquility.
When you consider the main function of a bedroom – sleeping – it is therefore important which color you choose. The main (psychological) effects of some colors:
- Red – strength, sensuality & love
- Orange – energy, warmth & dynamics
- Yellow – cheerfulness, warmth & inspiration
- Green – calm, nature & balance
- Blue – coolness, reliability & tranquility
- Purple – wealth, wisdom & mysticism
White, gray, and black also influence our brains. Think carefully about which color you choose, it is an important mood maker in the bedroom.
Determine the right color combinations for your bedroom
To determine the right color combinations, ask yourself the following question: what atmosphere do I want to create?
- Peace and security?
Use natural colors such as white, gray, brown, and beige, possibly combined with soft, subtle pastels such as green, purple, and blue.
- Cheerfulness and energy?
Then choose warm, striking colors such as yellow, orange, or red. Ideal if it is difficult to get out of bed in the morning 😉 Golden yellow, honey-yellow, pastel orange or ruby red… plenty of choices! Check the color fan in the store or use the handy online color tool to see which color shade or color combination suits you (and your furniture) perfectly.
- Wealth and mystery?
Dark colors give a feeling of richness. Mystery. Lust. Make a room appear smaller, creating an intimate (er) atmosphere. Beautiful dark colors for the bedroom are carmine red, chocolate brown, and dark purple.
