How Colors Can Impact the Mood of a Room

Choosing the right colors to paint or decorate the rooms in your home can really set the tone and mood of those rooms. Whether it’s your kitchen, dining room, or bedroom, the colors we choose affect us and can influence our mood quite easily. When decorating a room, you should not only consider how certain colors look, but how they can make you feel.

Luckily, you don’t need each room in your home to be the same color, so you can take advantage of the psychology behind color. While color might not influence any two people in the exact same way, there are some generalities behind the moods they create and you can use them strategically by keeping the following information in mind.

Red

This color often evokes powerful emotions. It can increase energy levels and promote a sense of excitement. The color can draw people together and is good for stimulating conversation which is why it can be good for a dining room. It can create passion in the bedroom but it can also make it difficult to relax so it’s not recommended.

Blue

The most popular and common color in the world is all around us in nature. The sky and the seas are blue and the color promotes relaxation and has a calming effect, making it good for bedrooms or living rooms.

Green

The color green represents life, rebirth, and newness. It works well in kitchens to help cool down the room when you’re cooking and can stimulate whimsical conversation in the dining room.

Yellow

This color is associated with higher powers which comes from the sun being yellow. Yellow can evoke feelings of happiness and innocence. Choose yellow for a dining room or living room and it can bring about a sense of intellectualism for a stimulating conversation.
