Bedrooms are sometimes the last room considered when you are painting your home. Perhaps it is because it is one of the rooms in the house that has lower amounts of traffic. For this reason, you can use a different type of paint in this room than what is desirable in other parts of the house. Soft sheens, flats and eggshells can be used in bedrooms since the paint does not have to stand up under so much traffic. The most difficult part of this job may be selecting the color. Although the room has less traffic than other portions of the house it serves many important purposes; and the color choice is important.

Many NJ interior design professionals suggest that the bedroom be done in relaxing hues. Muted colors will help create a relaxing atmosphere that will be comfortable and relaxing. Various shades of blues and greens are some of the cooler colors will help set the mood without making it seem too dark. These colors are a very good choice for smaller bedrooms since they can also create the illusion that the room is much larger than it actually is.

Bedrooms with a modern design are using neutral colors more frequently. Using neutral colors for the walls and larger painted spaces allows for adding splashes of color throughout the room. They are also an excellent choice for homeowners who like to decorate seasonally. Neutral tones blend well with various furnishings and accessories. Texture can be added into the NJ interior design by the use of attractive bed linens, various flooring options, and window treatments.

There are several factors to be considered when painting your bedroom. Think about how certain colors make you feel. If you prefer reds, which are not typically used for interior painting in the bedroom, try a deep wine. Think about the mood you desire to create. If you prefer bolder colors, they can be toned down with various types of lighting. Or you can use a wallpaper design, curtains or various wall hangings to help tone down a preferred color.

Contemporary designs are using various creative methods such as stenciling, accent walls or combining modern wallpaper with interior painting. Painting trim and doors are frequently used and can be very complementary as well as add more texture and depth to the room. Painting doors and moldings can also accent various contrasts in paint color. It is growing more popular to paint the door frame and trim using a neutral color while using a dark color to offset the door. You will need to use a different kind of paint for trim and doors than what is used for the walls. For those who prefer a less glossy look, there are many latex semi gloss paints available from which to choose that will work nicely.

No matter what color scheme you choose, texture can be a great addition. It can cause the walls to look raised, giving it a sort of 3D effect. Many are choosing this option because it gives the area a rustic look as it makes the walls stand out quite a bit more. However you choose to decorate this very important room remember that it is a more personal area of the house and it can be a sort of extension of your unique personality. You will spend more time in this room than anyone else; create it the way you prefer.
