Blue is the Best Bedroom Color for Sleep

Blue has always been one of the most popular paint colors and is the best bedroom color for sleep! And research backs it up. A study done by the hotel chain Travelodge reveals that people who sleep in blue bedrooms clock a healthy eight hours of quality sleep, because of blue’s association with feelings of calmness.

It’s no doubt that colors can influence how we feel. So, because the receptors that govern our brain’s daily wake and sleep cycle are particularly sensitive to the color blue, shades of blue can lead to a good night’s sleep.
