The top three bedroom colours that promote ‘peaceful’ sleeping – and the one shade you should ALWAYS avoid
- Experts have revealed the three colours that are perfect for all bedrooms
- Blue, yellow and green – in pastel shades are the best for a sound night of sleep
- Red is the worst colour as it raises the heart rate and is associated with energy
Experts have revealed the three colours you should use to decorate your bedroom for a good night’s sleep – and it is bad news if you like red.
The team at Bed Threads have revealed people who sleep in blue bedrooms get the most sleep – and wake up the happiest.
And this is because the ‘happiness receptors’ in human eyes are very sensitive to blue.
Experts have revealed blue is the best colour for your bedroom – and suggest it could help you wake up happy
The next best choice is a mellow yellow like the one pictured – this room gets a double thumbs up from experts because it incorporates blue too
So when we see the colour blue our heart rate slows, we feel calm and can sleep well.
Shades of blue with grey or icy undertones also help to mimic the ocean which can help people feel calm and sleepy.
Yellow, a very mellow yellow, is another great colour to use in the bedroom, according to experts.
Green is the third best colour for the bedroom as it helps create a peaceful atmosphere
Red is not ideal as it a colour for passion and energy and violence – it also increases your heart rate
Light yellow is both relaxing and calming and can help people feel comfortable in their surroundings.
The third best colour to decorate the bedroom with is green, particularly lighter shades like sage.
These calmer greens help create a zen environment – it is advised to steer away from brighter shades like lime for this reason.
The helpful team also explained why red is not the perfect colour for the bedroom.
Red lovers should opt for a coral colour pallet instead as it is more calming but still bold
Pastel colours work best for sleep, according to the experts
Yellow helps people feel comfortable and calm and is a feat colour for the bedroom
Because red is synonymous with fire, passion and danger it could lead to increased blood pressure when used on bedroom walls or furnishings.
Pastel colours are best and people who love red should opt for oranges or corals instead.
They continued by explaining bright colours and out-there patterns could make it hard for children to get to sleep as it is overstimulating.
And offered a cheeky side note, saying 21 percent of people who slept in a silver room were more likely to wake up ready to go to the gym in the morning.
