For most people, the bedroom is where they spend most of their time. Therefore, your bedroom should be welcoming. We’ll show you 7 tips for painting the walls of your bedroom and achieving professional-level designs.

The colors of the bedroom should provide charm, tranquility, aesthetic taste, and warmth. Good colors on the walls will create this feeling in the room.

This doesn’t mean that your room has to be boring, however. You can choose an elaborate color or design scheme. New ideas can give you an interesting and finely finished end result.

Here are 7 tips for the painting the walls in a professional way:

Rooms to paint

Your bedroom isn’t the only place to use these professional techniques. Other areas of your house can also benefit from painting the walls and make your home beautiful.

When choosing where to paint, what rooms are the most suitable?

  • Bedrooms
  • Living room
  • Dining room
  • Hall

On the other hand, the bathroom and kitchen usually have ceramic materials or tiles that are better suited to the room than painting the walls.

Distribution of color through the rooms

We recommend having the tones distributed throughout the house. In other words, don’t use a single color for all the rooms. The monochrome effect is usually too dense and oversaturated.

-Monochrome becomes monotony.-

Instead, we recommend a polychrome theme. Some spaces can share the same color, however, such as the living room and the hallway.

Painting the walls of your living room can add a lot to your home decor.

On the other hand, we advise not repeating the colors of the living room and the bedroom. You spend a lot of time in these rooms so it’s important to take advantage of the different sensations colors can transmit.

Painting the walls with a roller

Using a roller allows for a perfect finish. The paint is well-distributed and creates a smooth surface which is perfect for the bedroom.

Corners are most complicated and it’s best to use a brush. That way, you avoid any small gaps or unpainted spots.

There are also rollers that have images of vegetables, flowers, or geometric shapes. These designs transfer to the surface. This innovative technique is also very easy to use.

-The use of good materials creates a perfect finish.-

The best colors for the bedroom

If you want a comfortable room and the perfect space for tranquility and rest, the color of the walls plays a big role.

The following colors typically fit the best for the aesthetics of a bedroom:

  • Gray
  • Dark blue
  • Maroon or dark red
  • Pistachio green
  • White

For a child’s room, you could consider:

  • Sky blue
  • White
  • Pistachio green

Two or more colors for a wall

You don’t have to stick to just one color. You can use two or more colors while painting the walls, using schematic or abstract designs.

  • Two-tone: This is using two different colors. You can use a strip of color through the middle of the wall or divide the wall into two parts, each with a different color.
  • Multicolored: You can use different colors with geometric shapes in horizontal or vertical stripes. You can also simply use the colors on the surface of the wall in a random way.

Wall designs

A multi-colored wall.

You don’t have to just have one plain color on the wall. In fact, even if you’re painting the walls just one color, you can then add designs and decoration.

Types of drawings or graphic designs you can use:

  • Flowers
  • Vegetables
  • Animals (in children’s rooms especially)
  • Geometric shapes

You can also have a decorative curtain that has plants, geometric shapes, or linear designs.

Vinyl stickers

A vinyl wall decal can add some personality to a room, add to a theme, or represent something that you love. You can also remove it whenever you want.

Depending on the decorative feeling you want to bring to a room, a wall sticker can attract the eye. Therefore, it’s important to know that it will be a central feature of the room and choose carefully.

If applied correctly, vinyl stickers have a very professional finish. However, you have to make sure the color of the room complements the sticker.

Vinyl stickers are usually dark in color, so consider painting the walls a lighter color to highlight the design.


There are many ways to create a professional finish while painting the walls of a room. Make sure before you start, however, be clear about what you want to achieve. Then, use the best materials and techniques to get the finish you want.
