There are many ways to paint the bedroom but, no doubt, the most logical and practical is to paint it with a relaxing color, since the bedroom is a room where we relax and rest and we have to create a favorable environment for it. Don’t you think so?
Fortunately, by taking a look at the color wheel, we can see exactly which colors relax and which don’t.
The colors in the cold part relax, and the ones in the hot part are not. Or at least not everyone.
If you want to see more details about the chromatic circuit and what it tells us about colors, you can do so here, and if not, follow me and discover these 22 most relaxing colors for painting the bedroom I have prepared.

Medium blue shade. Blue is the most relaxing color with which we can paint the bedroom. We could look at the wheel and the shades in the color wheel, choose any of them with our eyes closed to paint the bedroom, and still paint the room with a relaxing color. If you like this shade of natural blue, Bruguer has the perfect shade, natural Mediterranean blue, which you can buy here.
Although the wide range of blues relaxes, I chose five shades of blue. The first thing you see above these lines.
Let’s move on to the next one.
Light blue. Almost relaxing than the previous one, and if combined with white, it’s also great.
Grayish blue tone. In addition to relaxing, this color has a calmer and more elegant shade, thanks to the gray color. It’s not as vivid as the other blues, which is why I chose it.
Electric blue tone. Stronger and more energetic, but very relaxing, electric blue is one of the most popular and popular colors. If the same thing happens to you and you are looking for a relaxing bedroom, you can use it without any problems.

Medium green tone. Another relaxing color, almost parallel to blue, is green.
Practically the same as blue, green in almost all its tones and shades is a relaxing, cool color; perfect for achieving a relaxing atmosphere in the bedroom or anywhere else.

Grayish green As with blue, green is even more elegant and serene in its grayish tones. Quite a success.
Elegant, serene and full of life, green is another color that makes it easier for us to achieve a relaxing bedroom as we have seen.
Now let’s move on to the next color.
Turquoise is a mixture or combination of green and blue; so it is without a doubt another relaxing color to paint the bedroom.
It is true that, since it is a semi-saturated color, it gives a lot of energy, and varnishing can be stressful, but well added, it creates spaces, without a doubt, very relaxing.
Above these lines we see an example.
Color lilac, lilac or lavender

The purple color is made from a mixture of red and blue. (Here you can see how to make colors).
And as I said before, blue is a relaxing color (the cold part of the circle), while red is not a relaxing warm color (the hot part of the circle); Thus, the most common purple tones are those in which there is more blue pigmentation in the mixture of blue and red, resulting in tones of lilac, lilac or lavender, very relaxing colors.
Especially if they are combined with white, as we see above these lines. Although not required, as we see below.
If you like this color, Bruguer Japan shade is available, which you can buy here. Soft, relaxing and radiant purple tone.
The color is combined with golden tones that are not particularly relaxing, and yet the bedroom has a very relaxing atmosphere.

In this case, in addition to the relaxing color of lavender, it is combined with white and blue. To provide warmth to the bedroom, tones of natural bedding, wood and plant fibers have been added, so that a relaxing bedroom is obtained, but also comfortable.

Gray is an anti-color or neutral color par excellence. It does not express much, leaving neutral finishing layers.
To take advantage of this color and make it a relaxing color, we need to support it or combine it with the right colors; especially white.
If combined with white, we can add virtually any shade of gray, which will create not only a relaxing bedroom, but also sophisticated and very modern.
Like the one we see above this passage or the one we can see below.
Medium gray tone
Medium gray is a very elegant color that fits perfectly and combines with all materials and other colors. And it has more presence than light gray. If you like this color, the tone of Bruguer Natural Pearl that you can buy here is perfect. Medium / elevated gray tone that does not clutter the space and is extremely elegant.
High gray tone

It is true that the more we raise the tone, the gray must be darker and better combined.
If you don’t want to take a risk, a pastel gray tone, like the first bedroom we saw, is a sure color.
Let’s see more colors.

The pale pink color, although very delicate and has little saturation, is not in itself a relaxing color. But it creates an atmosphere that envelops me so, soft and pleasant, that I had to put it on this list of the most relaxing colors for the bedroom.

The colors we just saw are relaxing because, as I said, they are in the cool part of the color wheel (other than pink), not because I say so.
The Chromatic Circle is a magnificent guide for interpreting colors for any project we need.
Obviously there are many other colors that create a calm and peaceful environment, such as sand, beige, and brown; but they are not in the cold part of the circle, but in the hot part, which tells us about them, that they are obviously warm colors.
This does not mean that they cannot be painted and achieve a relaxing atmosphere, but they are not the most effective.
The more relaxing colors for the bedroom, are the ones we just saw; or, at least, a good portion of them.
