Not only that, but with the right color, you can finally get the style you’ve always wanted for your bedroom. Keep reading to learn what the popular bedroom colors are, how they affect your mood, and how you can use them in your personal space:

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.
