What bedroom colours go best with turquoise curtains?

Updated February 21, 2017

Turquoise is a bold colour with a greenish tone and makes a statement when used in any part of your bedroom. When you use turquoise curtains, the look and feel of your bedroom can change depending on the colours that you choose for everything in your room, from the bed to the floor.


If you have turquoise curtains in your room, you can paint your entire room in the same colour. Having the same colour on your walls as your curtains will make your room look larger. To add visual interest in a room with the same colour curtains and walls, choose curtains with texture. Turquoise will also go well with walls that are lime green, yellow, brown or grey, especially in a larger room, or any shade of white such as cream or off-white.


Just like with your walls, you can create a harmonious bedroom by matching the colour of your curtains with the colour of your bedding. Aside from using turquoise for your bedding, if you have turquoise curtains, the colours that you can use for your sheets, pillowcases, blanket, comforters, and bedspreads are lime green, yellow, brown or grey, especially in a larger room, or any shade of white such as cream or off-white. Likewise, don't be afraid to mix and match such as combining white sheets with turquoise pillowcases or mixing turquoise sheets with lime green pillowcases.


When decorating, you should always consider the colour of your floor. If you have turquoise curtains, which is a cool but bold colour, you may want lighter flooring. Whether you have hardwood or laminate flooring, wall-to-wall carpeting or an area rug, choose light colours over dark ones such as oak, pine or whitewash for hardwood and laminate floors, and cream or beige for carpets and rugs. Aside from being colours that go well with turquoise curtains, these finishes and colours will open up your room and make it appear larger.


The colour of your furniture in a room with turquoise curtains can also affect the look and feel of the bedroom. If you have a large room, you can get away with a furniture with darker colours such as wood with a walnut or mahogany finish. White, wooden furniture will work well with turquoise curtains whether you have a small or a large bedroom. Wrought iron furniture, such as a wrought iron bed, would also work well if you have turquoise curtains. Although wrought iron is black, it goes well with curtains that are turquoise because wrought iron furniture pieces aren't solid the way wooden furniture is.
