Study finds some colors better for sleep

Businesses have long realized the impact color can have on consumers. For instance, the colors red and yellow have been shown to stimulate the appetite. There is a long list of restaurants that have used these colors to their advantage, including McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Red Robin, Sonic, and Carl’s Jr. Hospitals have done research on what colors are most peaceful and healing, which is why you’ll often find hues of cream and blue in hospital décor. Knowing these facts, it should not be surprising to find out that certain colors are more conducive to sleep than others.

Blue rooms best for sleep

The hotel chain Travelodge recently released the results of a study they conducted to determine which colors are best to lull their customers into a long and restful sleep. The survey found that "people who sleep in rooms painted yellow, blue, or green get the best night’s sleep." People who slept best and longest were those in blue rooms. Surprisingly, though purple is fairly close to blue in hue, people with purple bedrooms got the least amount of sleep.

Purple may stimulate nightmares

"Purple . . . [has been] reported to stimulate creativity and the unconscious mind. Therefore sleeping in a purple room is more likely to promote vivid dreams or even nightmares; resulting in you feeling tired in the morning," said Suzy Chiazzari, color therapy and holistic interior design consultant.

Based on these findings, Travelodge intends to change the traditional look of their hotel rooms in order to ensure the best night’s sleep possible for their guests.
