Are your bedroom walls keeping you awake at night?

Are your bedroom walls keeping you awake at night?

The colour of our bedroom walls can play a key role in overall quality of sleep, according to research from Dulux.

8 in 10 people are failing to get a good night’s sleep, with those who have red bedroom walls the worst affected.

According to the study from Dulux, Brits with green bedrooms get the best sleep (25%), while those with red walls unfortunately suffer from a lack of quality rest (50%).

Those with a black theme are the most amorous, while those with a yellow theme are the least passionate.

People with yellow bedrooms are most likely to say they always feel exhausted (32%) and according to the study, people who have a yellow front door earn the most money (£47,000, compared to a national average of £26,000).

To help homeowners embrace the new spirit of positivity, Dulux is working with Fearne Cotton as an ambassador for the 2019 Colour Of The Year – Spiced Honey – to show the nation how they can create more mindful home spaces.

“In today’s world, there’s so much confusion and complication and I think, for 2019, we’re all ready to let the light in and start living in a more positive way. A lot of it is about getting back to basics, putting down our phones, and appreciating the beauty that’s around us,” said Fearne.

“We forget to see the blue of the sky, the sunlight hitting the pavement and we ignore the impact that these things have on our mood.

“This is the same in our homes, too often we think ‘oh I like that colour’ but don’t think about the impact that can have on how we feel in that room.

“We need to look at what we want from that room and then create spaces that help us feel more positive.”
