Red Bedroom Design

Red is a warm and luxurious color it sounds perfect for the bedroom but I wouldn’t suggest using red for a bedroom as it increases your respiratory rate, and you normally want to lower your respiratory rate, relax and sleep in your bedroom. Therefore it is not often used in large areas for bedrooms as it is a stimulating color, but it can be used to highlight and create the element of romance, love, and passionate luxury through the use of drapery, bed linen, and accessories, really just using it as accents and that is where red really excels.

Calm relaxing blue

Blue is a more relaxing color to use in a bedroom, it’s calm and cool, it acts as a tranquilizer, it has healing properties, promotes peace is sedative, and lowers blood pressure. Compared to red I believe you will get a better night’s sleep selecting blue as a color to use in the bedroom. Find more color meanings for Blue
