The Colour Of Your Blinds Can Dictate Your Mood

It is important to choose the right style of blinds to suit your home and its interior but in addition, you should also consider the colour of your blinds. Colours can affect our mood in many different ways and with each room in the home, you might want to think about the way the colour will affect you. Will it bring you inspiration or make you feel low? These are important considerations before you commit to buying your blinds. Of course, the colour of the blinds should also match up with the colour of the room, otherwise there will be a clash.


This colour is ideal for rooms in the home where people will be conversing together, such as the living room or dining room. Red is thought to stimulate and energise the mind and as such, it is a very powerful colour to have on the blinds in your home. It is a particularly effective colour to use in your living room, as this is the room with warmth and energy.


Blue is a colour we would often associate with the bathroom and it tends to inspire a feeling of relaxation and calm. The bathroom is a place where we get some peace away from others and where we can switch off and relax from the stresses of our daily lives. If you want to create this kind of reflective mood in your bathroom, it may be worth fitting blinds in this colour.


Another colour which is often associated with areas of the room where we spend time relaxing is green. This also inspires a feeling of relaxation and tranquillity and is often found in the bathroom or bedrooms, especially if it’s a light green colour. Updating your bathroom with green blinds will instantly encapsulate a comforting, relaxing mood which will ensure you feel at home.


We would usually associate yellow with a bright, inspiring feeling, with lots of energy. However, depending on the room it is used, yellow may be a bit over powering. If yellow is a colour you want to use, it is probably best to keep it for bedrooms, particular for children’s bedrooms. You may want to play around with these blinds and add some sparkle to give them a more unique appeal for the children’s room.


This colour can go one of two ways, it can either look stylish or it can create a depressed, low feeling. Black blinds are most effective to use in the office, rather than the home and can look really glamorous, if used in the right way. If you have a room in the home where you would prefer not to let in any light, you may want to use black blinds for this.


A standard colour in blinds, white is simple but it also instils a feeling of peace and relaxation. It is a colour you can use anywhere in the home.
