Many types of research show that the color of the bedroom is really important to the quality of our sleep. Cool shades of blue are the best choice for the bedroom as you will sleep eight hours and wake up full of positive energy. These colors are good for the bathroom and dressing areas.
If you want a traditional look for your master bedroom, choosing deeper shades of blue is the best option for you. That doesn’t mean you have to use dark blue as there are plenty of other muted or light blue shades out there.

For a softer and more romantic look, try blue-gray or gray with lavender undertones. In any of these ways, your master bedroom is a relaxed place to sleep.
If you want a contemporary and modern look, go for lighter shades of blue. Adding white or gold tones will give your bedroom a comfortable look. Try light blue and white textiles and patterns to make your master bedroom a tropical paradise in small sizes.

Here are more tips if your favorite color for the bedroom is blue:
-It’s easy to mix colors or use an ombre technique. This technique uses the same color from a light shade to a darker shade.
– Choosing light blue for your ceiling is the perfect way to create a visually higher ceiling.
-If you want the blue color to appear between other creamy or gray colors, you can just paint one wall in blue.
– A better combination than the typical black and white combo is navy blue or indigo paired with white color.
– If your duvet or comforter is already a shade of blue, choose the same shade for your walls. If you think the blue color is too light or too dark, all you can do is paint one wall the same shade.
– The blue color goes well with any type of wooden furniture, but choosing between white or creamy is the best choice.
Chris Idzikowski of the Edinburgh Sleep Center says that special receptors in our eyes are the most sensitive to the color blue. People who own blue bedrooms are more rested than any other color and sleep up to 8 hours a night.

If your bedroom is aqua or azure, you will most likely wake up happy. Blue also reminds us of something calm, like the ocean or the sky, and it can lower your blood pressure and lower your heart rate.
Because of this, the blue color is the most recommended color for your bedrooms and bathrooms. On the other hand, a pastel blue wall can appear too cold if not balanced with warm hues for furniture and fabrics.
