Painting a bedroom for the first time can feel like you are hiking up a steep mountain or cooking up a special meal for your friends and family.
Trying something new can be daunting and challenging at first, but it can lead to a great sense of creative freedom and accomplishment when you have the right tools and resources that won’t break the bank. The finish line may feel out of reach, but it’s closer than you think.
Hold the Vision, Trust the Process
A bedroom is more than a living space; it’s a personal domain for self-expression and comfort. Everyone has a unique approach to expressing themselves and how they express comfort. It begins with the color of their walls.
Color acts as a powerful tool in creating a vision that exudes certain desired moods the minute you walk into a bedroom. To create a vision for your bedroom, what moods do you want to evoke?
Warm neutrals colors, such as Grant Gray or Oak Creek, radiate security, safety, and comfort.
Light pastel colors, such as Dayflower or River Mist convey peace, wellness, or happiness.
Explore ColorSmart by BEHR® to visualize, coordinate, and select the perfect color for your bedroom.
After selecting a color, it is time to make your vision come to life with these essentials.
