How to choose colors for blue bedroom?
Did you already search for blue bedroom ideas? I may suggest that if you are here than you are still searching your ideal color or combination.
I found inspiring ideas to solve your dilemma in a day. I imagined that I would like to choose a paint and have the results in a week: choose the paint, buy it, test it and paint the room. Done.
Let’s start because my words of intro can bore you.
Choose the color company that you trust
It’s a huge problem when you spend tons of time choosing a color but the company that you’ve chosen have awful quality. You will dream to hit the buttons ctrl+z (keyboard shortcut to undo the action).
So I insist you to choose the company that you would like to stick to after your perfect color choice.
I won’t advice any painting companies in this blog because readers are from all over the world and my company reviews may help just some of you.
Find the site of your company
My example will be with Benjamin Moore Company. I really liked their site: the navigation is quite simple and I didn’t feel stressed after seen that they have 3500 shades.
Good organization of the products is the key to their business and your happy face.
If you are lucky enough to find online store with easy product organization than half of your mission is completed. Review all pages that they have. Usually great stores have article helpers, online managers, interior room examples, etc.
Do you want to complete your choice during the day? Go now to the site to the company that you’ve chosen and ask questions to the managers. A lot of questions!
Ask several managers to sum up several opinions. I usually google all answers that I am not sure the manager advised correctly or without wiki knowledge that I like so much.
Painting the room is such a serious decision for most of the families. You need to move from the room and maybe personally move the furniture when painting on a budget. It takes so long, that the second decision for repairing the room looks scary.
But what if you live in a country that doesn’t have great companies with helpful sites? I live in Ukraine and for the words “painting company” I have just one popular company.
I didn’t investigate how good this brand is, but I should devote more time to check if they are truly good. Moreover, I am not sure if their managers can really help in choosing the proper color, so Google and Yahoo searches are my helpers in this questions.
Visit this page, choose the room that you need: bedroom, bathroom or dining room. Then choose the style of the room that you like the most. After this play with colors.
The viewer helps a lot to visualize what you expect to see after renovating. You can also upload your own photo, but I didn’t check it, so I would be glad to see how it worked for you.
Useful articles about color
The company that I’ve chosen is bejaminmoore.com.
I found such valuable links on the site:
Article about Color trends 2015.
Why I think the link is very cool? The company that exists on a market for a long time won’t create fake color trends. I trust their trend list. Designers that work with Benjamin Moore are definitely not newbies.
So when you found such trend list in a reputable company – go and check the colors they selected.
Benjamin Moore suggests such colors for blue rooms:
Harbor fog (2062-70)
Blue hydrangea (2062-60)
And you can find a beautiful combination of colors using a fan deck. And don’t forget about the help of the manager in the store.
Use fan deck for decorating your room
Fan decks is one more idea for inspiration in decorating your dream home. Usually fan decks are used to find the ideal color for the walls. I would take it for other purposes.
What if you have furniture that you don’t plan to change after renovation? In this case you can find the color of the furniture in the fan deck and see what blue shade works the best with it.
Browse palettes of online designers
If you totally don’t imagine the combination of colors in your new room then colourlovers.com should help you a lot.
This source is created for online designers to find the perfect palette for the photo, sites or other designing needs. I like to use it for the decorating inspiration.
To tell the truth, it is difficult for me to create something fresh and modern. If I don’t visit sources for ideas, I usually end with boring home design. To avoid such shameful cases I decided to collect palettes from Colour Lovers.
When you see palette online, you intuitively see if it fits you. Do you like pink flowers on the blue wall or chocolate furniture or green curtains near the blue walls? Does this palette looks boring or very pretty and you can add all colors to your new interior?
It is fun to find ideas with unique and unordinary way like Colour lovers.
Here are my favorite palettes with blue:
So when you have such palettes you can visit your store with your personal ideas. Managers will find the proper color in their brand. I am still shocked: 3500 colors! Is it real to know all these shades and understand their difference and how to use them?
Specialist in choosing the paint should be paid a lot! I truly respect such professionals. They make our life so much easier.
Advanced tip. Color may differ depending on natural lightning, space amount and color of the furniture.
Same color may visually look different in small rooms and in big rooms.
It will also look different in the room that has sunny side or the opposite dark side room.
White, brown or green furniture may also visually change the tones of the blue you’ve chosen.
Several comments that I found online about types of blue:
“We did blue stream. I made a mistake. It’s a teeny bit baby blue, and not enough slate blue. I forgot to use this website first!! The way it looks on the site is true to form.”
“I would go with a “dove blue”. With the black and dark brown furniture, the dove blue has both gray and brown hues in it. Definitely paint the room.”
“Dream World by Sherwin Williams. It is light & looks great with dark furniture. White bedding and curtains would look great with this combo.”
Interior design on a budget
I thought that it would be easy to be an interior designer and DIY repair is not a problem at all for me.
I dramatically changed my mind after interior designer courses. It was such a challenge for me when I realized how many nuances are hidden in the interior.
If you have money to hire interior designer – do it. You might save much more money.
We usually don’t calculate the amount of time we spend on choosing each detail of the décor. We also forget about stress and mistakes that may cost a lot. And what about emotions that we face when something went wrong: the shade of blue is not what we expected to be and the furniture doesn’t suit the new style.
So if you have time and patience then do all choices yourself. But if you really want some changes and don’t want to be upset after all things are done – hire the interior designer.
I wish I had a chance to hire the designer, but unfortunately our designers are far from A+. We have lack of good stores, quality of materials and practice of designers. I didn’t notice that our people hire interior designers. They are usually hired by people who own luxurious cottages and apartments. And interiors that cost millions look so poor. Using gold, crystals, animal print and all in one space makes me spare my eyes for seen this. So sometimes I’m a bit jealous that people have the opportunity to choose designers or have a range of different stores in interior designing. IKEA is the simplest way for me to buy furniture for my room, because our stores are poor in style and high in price. That was a 5 minute diary about interior design in Ukraine.
