White/Off-white

Visual effect: White creates a refreshing and clean look in a bedroom and works well with any style. Shades of white and off-white are particularly useful in a small bedroom because they create a sense of space. If you want to give a small room an illusion of greater height, the sensible thing to do is to paint your ceiling white.

Psychological effect: White imparts a feeling of serene calmness and helps reduce any nagging feelings of disappointment.  However, a white room can also feel cold, bland, and sterile. For a cozier bedroom, consider off-white shades like light gray, ivory, and cream instead of pure white, or try adding a few splashes of colors through your decor.

Perfect for: If you are aiming for a shabby chic room, shades of white are perfect to make your rugged or distressed furniture stand out. Whites also look great in modern minimalist homes.
