There’s no quicker way to change up the look of a room than a fresh coat of paint on the walls, but did you know the color you choose can change the emotional energy of a room too? Different hues affect our moods in different ways, so it’s important to use a paint color that suits the vibe you want to create in your space. You don’t want to feel energized in your bedroom when you’re trying to ward off insomnia, nor do you want to feel sleepy in your dining room when you have friends over.

Best for: kitchens, bathrooms Like a ray of sunshine, this mood-boosting hue fills any room with warmth and happiness. Yellow is a terrific color for kitchens because it increases energy levels and lifts the spirits, something we all could use in the morning as we’re making our first cup of coffee.

Bright yellow is also the most fatiguing color for your eyes to process, so use sparingly, or stick to buttery shades.
