Relaxing Paint Colors for Your Home

Last Updated on April 17, 2023

We all want to come home to a peaceful, relaxing environment after a long day. And while not much can be done about the piles of dishes or laundry awaiting you, you can still create an overall serene and calming oasis. One way to create that overarching relaxing vibe in your home is to select soothing paint colors. With the right color palettes, you can transform the entire atmosphere of your home. Here are some of the most relaxing paint colors for your home that you can choose:

Blue is well-known for its association with feelings of serenity and calmness. It can naturally reduce anxiety and stress, making it one of the best possible options for creating an oasis at home. Consider lighter shades like baby blue or sky blue in rooms that feel dark or closed off. Lighter shades help open up the overall feel of any room.

Green is also well-known for its calming properties. Since it is so closely related to the natural world, green creates a feeling of tranquility. Consider selecting a more muted shade or a shade with gray undertones like moss green or sage green. They will turn any room into an inviting and cozy space.

If you want to instill a sense of tranquility in your home, lavender is the perfect option. It has long been associated with feelings of serenity and relaxation. Opt for lighter shades like periwinkle or lilac for a calming bedroom wall color that helps support restful sleep.

Pink may not be the first color that comes to mind when you want to create a restful space. But it is well worth considering. Lighter shades, like baby pink or blush pink, can create a very relaxing environment. However, you want to avoid darker or brighter shades of pink as they will have the opposite effect.








Before you start buying tons of paint, take some time to thoughtfully consider the overall aesthetic of your home (or room). Think about how factors like artwork, lighting, and furniture will work with some of the shades you have your eye on. Try to bring home samples so you can compare those calming shades in your own space rather than in the harsh lighting of a store. Additionally, consider updating your countertops or cabinets if you want to turn your home into a calming oasis.
