Paint Colors And Your Mood

Blog

The color of interior paint can either enhance or diminish a person's psychological well-being. Some individuals may be more sensitive to the mood-changing effects of color in their living areas. Updating your home by painting and wallpapering is a cost-effective way of freshening up your living space, and it may even help sell your home faster when the real estate market is in a downward trend. Here are some paint colors that have mood-altering effects:

Green

Green, a prominent nature color, is known for its calming and relaxing effects on the mood, and it may be a more versatile paint color choice than blue. Green is recommended for bedrooms, family rooms, and living rooms. It is even one of the most common paint color choices in hospitals. Some studies have shown that the color green has a calming effect on the brain and that its effects on the mood are similar to those elicited by anti-anxiety medications.

Yellow

Yellow-toned paints are great for smaller rooms or dreary hallways because they promote a positive mood and cheerfulness while "opening up" a small space. Because yellow is a bright color, subtle or muted yellow tones should be considered as opposed to bright yellows. While yellow paint can add a cheery vibe to your home, some cultures believe that intense shades of yellow may induce feelings of cowardice, apprehensive, and betrayal.

Red

Red paint promotes feelings of passion and romance while also promoting excitement and appetite. Be careful when combining red paint with black accessories or wallpaper. The combination of these tones might cause feelings of anxiety, depression, and even anger and, because of this, may be an inappropriate combination for the bedroom. Red interior paint is a great paint color choice for restaurants due to its appetite-promoting effects. Also, to some people, the combination of red tones and white induces feelings of joy.

Orange

Orange paint is a great color choice for guest rooms because it makes the room feel very welcoming and friendly. Bright orange walls are also a good choice for a home office because the tones promote feelings of ambition and pride. If you are considering orange as your paint choice for your home office, use it as a complementary color instead of a primary. If you paint all four walls bright orange, you may feel distracted or even on edge.

Blue

Blue evokes peace, tranquility, and calmness. It is a popular paint choice for bedrooms but may be unsuitable for kitchen and dining areas because it is considered an appetite suppressant. This is why restaurant owners usually avoid blue paint and wallpaper in their establishments. Blue also reminds people of the ocean and may invoke a happy "vacation" mood to a room. 

To learn more about paint and wallpaper colors, make an appointment with a painting company such as Klenosky Paint. These companies will help you make selections based upon your room sizes and your own personal tastes.
