What are the mistakes not to make to make your room a haven of peace and serenity conducive to sleep?
Colors to avoid in a room
Colors influence how long we sleep
In recent years, various studies show that the color of the walls of our bedroom influences the duration of our sleep. Cold colors, especially blue and green, are known to be soothing. While warm colors like red or orange are considered exciting and therefore less conducive to inducing sleep.
Yet the study done by Chris Idzykowski, a sleep specialist at the Edinburg Sleep Center, challenges some conventional wisdom. So the purple estimated soothing leads to even less sleep than red and orange. And the yellow, supposed to be toned, would actually be a soothing color for the adult but annoying for the babies!
Avoid warm or dark colors in your bedroom
All studies show that hot colors such as red and orange are too tonic and activity-related. Red in particular is stimulating and accelerates the heart rate. The orange is too invigorating and dynamic.
Nevertheless, used in colored keys (decorative objects, cushions, is) in a more neutral decor, these colors will bring gaiety.
Colors that are too dark, such as dark gray or chocolate are to be avoided because they bring heaviness. And black is really too gloomy. But again, if you like these colors, used as decorative touches or for bed linen, they will personalize your room.
Whatever your choice of colors, opt for a matte finish. Matt colors give a cozy atmosphere to rest.
