Researchers studied the bedrooms of 2,000 men and women to find out what color rooms lead to more and better sleep. They found that those snoozing in a blue room got more shut-eye.

Here are the bedroom colors, and the average amount of hours the people in those rooms slept:

Blue − 7 hours, 52 minutes

Yellow − 7 hours, 40 minutes

Green − 7 hours, 36 minutes

Silver − 7 hours, 33 minutes

Orange − 7 hours, 28 minutes

Red − 6 hours, 58 minutes

Gold − 6 hours, 43 minutes

Gray − 6 hours, 12 minutes

Brown − 6 hours, 5 minutes

Purple − 5 hours, 56 minutes

Another finding:

The research found that couples who had a “luxurious caramel” color scheme in their room had sex about three times a week; those who had red rooms only got it on once a week. (MensHealth)
