The 13 best teal paint colors for bedrooms

Want to paint your bedroom teal? Here are the best teal paint colors for bedrooms, and everything to keep in mind when painting a room teal!

While a lot of people prefer to stick to neutral colors for the walls in their home, I personally love a pop of color.

In my last house, we were 10 minutes from the ocean and so I lean into a lot of shades of blue for that coastal beachy feel.

We moved a little bit away from the beach, and I no longer decorate in that style, but I still have a really soft spot for blue wall colors.

Today I wanted to talk about blue bedrooms, and specifically teal paint colors for bedrooms.

Teal is a really appealing shade of blue and can make for a beautiful bedroom paint color. Let’s dive in!

What is teal?

Teal is a shade of blue–green. It is usually slightly more blue than green. It is also usually medium to dark in tone, a light blue green color is more likely to be called mint or maybe even turquoise than teal.

Embracing the Tranquility of Teal

Teal is generally considered to be a calming and serene, natural color. Because of this calming effect, it’s a good choice for a bedroom.

Teal is super versatile, and can work with various design styles, from modern to coastal. It can also work as an accent wall or all of the walls in your room.

In general, if you like bold color, you should at least consider teal for your bedroom.

Understanding Teal Undertones

Teal colors are generally blue colors with green undertones. They can have a varying amount of green, making them feel more green or more blue.

Some teals also have gray undertones. This will give them more of a muted and less bright feel. In general, muted paint colors are easier to decorate with.

Teal Complementary Colors

A few accent color pairings that beautifully complement teal walls:

  • Ivory and Cream
  • Coral and Peach
  • Gold and Brass
  • Deep Gray and Charcoal
  • Soft Pink and Rose

Tips for Painting with Teal

In general, teal is going to be on the darker side for a paint color. If you are painting over light walls, prepare to do 2 to 3 coats to get really good coverage.

There’s nothing worse than having a gorgeous dark wall color with little speckles of white poking through.

I always suggest purchasing a nicer line of paint from whatever brand do you decide to purchase from.

Buying the paint that has the paint and primer in the best possible coverage is going to save you time and energy. It might even save you a canna paint depending on the size of your room if you have to do less coats.
