Besides, is red a bad color for a bedroom?
If red is your favorite color, you can use it in the bedroom, but use caution. Red stimulates, and too much of it can be overwhelming. Softer shades will be more relaxing, and you don't want to go with too bright a shade in the bedroom. Cool and soothing blues are a natural for the bedroom.
Likewise, does red make a room look smaller? Red seems to move toward you, so when placed on surfaces like walls, it draws those areas in. The more walls covered in red, the more the room will appear to contract, making it visually smaller and cozier. However, too much red can make a room feel claustrophobic and suffocating.
Consequently, is having a red room bad?
Red has been shown to raise blood pressure and speed respiration and heart rate. It is usually considered too stimulating for bedrooms, but if you're typically in the room only after dark, you'll be seeing it mostly by lamplight, when the color will appear muted, rich and elegant.
Why you shouldn't paint your room red?
Red can raise energy levels – it has been shown to increase blood pressure and heart rate – and is known for stimulating appetites and conversation. If you would like to paint your bedroom or living room red, look for muted, rich reds which have a softer and more elegant look.
