The Color of Your Bedroom will Affect your Sleep

There are a lot of people talking about sleep recently. When people do not get enough sleep, they become stressed, overwhelmed, and tired ultimately making them less productive in the busy schedules of life. They can also become sick and frustrated without the proper amount of sleep. The question now is, can the color of your bedroom actually impact your sleep? Well, it sure can.

A study by Travelodge has been conducted to measure the effectiveness of color in a room on how people slept and for how long. Have you guessed the most soothing, peaceful and relaxing colors yet?

As you think of peace and relaxation, blue may come to mind. As this is the color of a bedroom that helps people sleep the most. People with blue bedrooms get almost a full 8 hours of sleep versus other colors. This study also revealed that blood pressure and heart rate were reduced, which also contributed to longer amounts of sleep. Along these similar concepts, yellow and green are the next colors to cause a good night’s sleep. A muted yellow or a green can calm the body and the mind, creating a safe and secure environment and ultimately, a sense of peace.

Surprisingly, silver is another calming color, resulting in 7.5 hours of sleep each night. A silver room creates a moonlight like color in a room. By adding moonlight, it offers a sense of calm and the appearance of night. Don’t be fooled though, silver is the color that gets the most sleepers motivated to work out in the morning.

Orange creates a sense of warmth, which gives sleepers close to 7.5 hours of sleep, while red and gold colored rooms offered just shy of 7 hours of sleep. Grey and Brown are the colors where you start seeing significant dips in sleep. People that sleep in these colored rooms often get around 6 hours of sleep.

The unfortunate part for those Baltimore Ravens, Sacramento Kings, and LSU fans is that purple rooms are the worst to get the best amount sleep. Anyone sleeping in a purple room will have trouble relaxing, and their brain will continue to function, resulting in under 6 hours of sleep. This ultimately can affect your mood, your ability to function and your stress levels.
