Young Single Adult Bedroom Colors

Neutral or basic shades are often the choice for couple's bedrooms as the colours are understated enough so that each party can add a few accessories and hues of their own to the bedroom space. Young, single adults have the luxury of choosing the bedroom shades that work best based on their personal design styles and philosophies on colour, and several shades are fitting for conservative and modest or outgoing and bold individuals.


Pink is generally seen as a feminine colour, so most men may not be willing to sleep, work and relax is a room that is saturated in this shade. However, pink is a representation of beauty and lends an air of self-worth and acceptance to the bedroom, which is ideal for a young, single woman who wants to use her bedroom as the place to recharge after a hectic work week, or for the area of her home where she makes important life decisions. Soft shades of pink are ideal if neutral colours like charcoal grey and black will be included in the room's furniture; bolder pinks like magenta or hot pink make a striking accent wall and can also serve as the shade for a velvet headboard or ottoman.


The royal and sophisticated connotations of purple are often appealing to women. Men don't generally tend to want purple as their main bedroom colour, so it's best for a single woman to decorate her space with purple accents before sharing a room with a mate. An aubergine accent wall gives the bedroom a sense of luxury, and purple velvet pillows with tinges of pink provide sophisticated femininity to the space. Purple is the shade of sound judgment and spiritual fulfilment, making it ideal for the curtains, which are moved to allow sunlight into the room or to border the large wall mirror, so the colour and its principles are evident as one prepares for the day.


Passion, energy, and alertness are all traits associated with the colour red. The hue is commonly seen as overwhelming and may cause some people to be too wound up when entering an area that is supposed to be tranquil. Single men may want to use red to paint the walls of their bedrooms; this bright shade is often coupled with black or dark grey, such as grey stripes on the wall or a black armchair against the wall. Bold reds are often the colour of sports cars, and a bachelor can adorn his bedroom space with a sports car mural or framed prints of his favourite red cars against charcoal grey walls without any opposition from a wife.


A room with too much black is often seen as sombre and a signal of death. However, the "hue" also has a formal and sophisticated connotation that will give a man's bedroom classy, masculine energy. Black walls are the ideal backdrop for silver wall accents like clocks or mirrors or black and white photos housed in silver frames. Gray bedding will slightly break up the overwhelming nature of black, and grey end tables with white candles will bring a visually appealing contrast to the room. Black plush area rugs against a hardwood floor or a cowhide rug that displays black and white shades provides additional texture to the space without changing the colour scheme.
