6 Before And Afters That Show Just How Important The Use Of Colour Can Be


Colours play a huge role in the way your bedroom will look.

Every bedroom needs to emit a certain vibe and feeling and it’s the colours that create the mood in a bedroom.

This begins with the bed – as the focal point of the room – and then extends to the walls, floor and funrishings that help create the whole look. You can, for example, buy a bed based from Divan Bed Centre in a range of great colours to set the tone for a fun, vibrant room.

Here’s six examples where you can see just what a difference colour can make…

First Makeover

In this picture you can see a stark bedroom that lacks any character or personality. It’s boring and isn’t very appealing.

A small change of colour can make a big difference as demonstrated by this after photo below. The yellow painting on the wall and the new pillow cases and bed sheets make the room look so much more lively and appealing. The colour isn’t overbearing so if you like lots of white to keep the room light and clean that still exists but the coloour – a bright sunny yellow – adds a golden glow to lift the whole room.

Second Makeover

Sometimes the opposite works too. This room also looks unappealing and boring and is completely devoid of any life and charm.

The walls were repainted with a new coat of white paint and the window frames were given a wood like colour. Just by making these minor adjustments, with some new added accessories, a big difference has been created with the overall vibe and appearance of this bedroom. The eye is drawn to the wood-effect and further accessories on this theme could life it further still.

Third Makeover

Other bedrooms need a bolder, brighter shade of their colour – backed up by furnishings. This bedroom is devoid of any emotion and feeling. The room looks very drab and lifeless, desperate for an injection of life.

The room now looks amazing with the addition of a beautiful shade of blue to the walls, curtains and the bed. The addition of this shade of blue has created a calm and relaxing vibe in the room.

Fourth Makeover

Here’s another example of a dry, drab and character-free zone. It shows that cream – often vaunted as a neutral shade – sometimes can be far worse than white.

With the newly painted white walls, attractive looking bed base along with a complete remodelling of the room, it now looks much more appealing. The bed base sets to the tone for further accessories for a light and relaxing room.

Fifth Makeover

This bedroom contains dark colours and dated patterns. There is nothing wrong with using dark colours per se, but the way they have been used in this bedroom make the room appear very drab and dry.

Painting the walls white has now made the room look much more lively and attractive. Focusing on making the walls and the quilt white has also helped to drastically improve the mood emitted from this bedroom and gives space for the furnishings to add character to the room.

Sixth Makeover

This bedroom looks barren and lacks character – as well as a bed. The room needs some colour to reinvigorate the room but, when starting from scratch such as this, you have a useful blank canvas to begin from.

The mixture of colours in this bedroom has created a vibrant vibe and feeling in the room. Multi-coloured pillow cases add a fun vibe to the room, with the photos and frames showing how several colours can complement each other well for a warm feel.
