Does the color blue relax and calm you? Do you feel anxious when you are in a yellow room? Well, did you know that your environment has a direct effect on your emotions and your state of mind?

 

Although people perceive colors differently because it’s subjective, there are certain colors that have a universal effect on people. Hence, it is important that you know these effects to assist you in deciding the color of your room and other parts of your house. Below is a guide to help you out.

 

Red. Red has been strongly associated with anger and intensity, which is why you should avoid using this as the main color of your room. But it also stimulates a person’s energy that promotes enthusiasm and liveliness.  Hence, it’s good to choose this color for your living room or dining room as it helps draw people together and stimulates conversation.

 

Yellow. Yellow is a color usually associated with happiness and being cheery. Hence, it’s a perfect color for kitchens, bathrooms, and dining rooms. However, this isn’t a color you must consider for rooms because it’s likely that people will lose their temper. Babies also tend to cry more when inside a yellow room.

 

Blue. Blue is well-known to have a calming effect so it’s one of the best colors for a room but it should be softer shades of blue since darker shades have an opposite effect. It also helps in in bringing down blood pressure and slowing down respiration and heart rate. At the same time, warmer blues have a relaxing effect in social areas so you can also use this in family rooms, living rooms, and large kitchens.

 

Green. Similar to blue, the color green also has a calming effect that helps relieve stress as it relaxes them. It’s even associated with fertility so it can also be one of your choices for the bedroom. It can also be used in other parts of the house like; the kitchen, as it cools things down, the family room or the living room as it encourages relaxation, warmth, comfort and togetherness.

 

Orange. Orange is a color associated with enthusiasm, excitement, and energy. However, this isn’t the color you should choose for your bedrooms or social areas, but it’s a great color for your workout room. It brings out all the energy you need to do your fitness routine.

 

Purple. Purple is color that conveys wealth, royalty, and sophistication. It also conveys wisdom as well as spirituality. But like the color blue, you should choose the lighter versions of purpose such as lilac and lavender if you like to use this for your bedroom.

 

White. The good thing about white is it helps make the room appear bigger and spacious, but it also makes the room seem unfriendly. It’s also described as cold, bland and sterile which is why hospitals usually use white as it creates a sense of cleanliness and sterility.
