When it comes to deciding on the interior paint colors, it can be a big decision. While certain trendy paints might stand out, or you already have an idea of what you want your dream house to be painted as, there is a certain psychology behind color theory, and you might want to do some research on which colors may be most fitting for your personal mood.

Room Color Psychology

While most of us may not spend a lot of consideration deeply thinking about our room color, it has a profound daily effect on us. Room color can impact our moods and thoughts depending on our preferences and lifestyle. Certain colors or groups tend to receive a common reaction from most people, so it is important to choose wisely when it comes to painting.

Paint Colors that Boost Your Mood

Once you have decided what your desired mood is, get started on arranging which colors go where. In addition to painted walls, you can have accents like rugs, pillows, furniture, and wall art to complement the colors. Let’s compare the different choices, starting with warm colors and cool colors.

Warm Colors

Warm colors represent energy and excitement, and often create a mood of conversation and energization. Warm colors are best used in rooms with lots of activity, warmth and comfort.







Cool Colors:

Cool colors are best used for calming and relaxing and should give a sense of restfulness and relieve stress. Cool colors are best used in rooms where peace is desired, like the bedroom and the bathroom.




With so many colors to choose from, it can be difficult to decide on the mood of the room you’re aspiring to have. And with a whole rainbow of hues, don’t overlook neutral shades like tan, gray, white, and brown. Neutral shades are timeless classics that shouldn’t be forgotten when it comes to painting your interior.
