It has been proved that colors affect us on a subconscious level. An example would be the color blue and its association with blue skies, which for children means playing outside. Such ideas are ingrained in our brains with or without us knowing. 
In today's post, eProperty Nepal explains the general emotions that arise from different colours in your house and what colors are best in a particular room.

1. Red

Red is the most intense color and it pumps the adrenaline to a great extent. It is a good choice for the living room or dining room as it draws people together and stimulates conversation. Since red also raises blood pressure, we suggest avoiding red color in bedrooms.


From the color of sunshine to fields of marigold, yellow brings out the sunshine in you i.e. happiness. It is best for kitchens, dining rooms and bathrooms. On a down side, it has been found to make babies cry more so avoid yellow in a toddler's surroundings. 

3. Blue

The opposite of red, blue brings down blood pressure and slows respiration and heart rate. Hence, it is regarded a calming, relaxing and serene color. Blue is a great choice for bedrooms and bathrooms. Be sure to go for a lighter shade of blue because a dark shade has the opposite effect (sadness). 

4. Green

When someone says green, we usually visualize a natural surrounding. It is the most restful color for our eyes. Green can be used for almost any room. In kitchen, it cools things down and in a family surrounding, it helps us be at ease. Green, your go-to stress reliever!

5. Purple

Purple is considered a rather sophisticated colour. It is associated with luxury and creativity. Experiment with lighter shades of purple in the living room to bring similar emotions that come from blue without the risk of feeling chilly. 

6. Orange

We can't answer if orange originated from the fruit or the color but we can assure you that it evokes excitement and enthusiasm. Naturally, it is the best colour for a room you use for exercising or working out.
