The right paint color in a child’s bedroom could set the foundation for his or her creative expression, comfort, and ability to rest and relax.
Children’s rooms are a great place to experiment with colors, textures and patterns as it can reflect the youthfulness of their nature. It is important to think about the effects that colors in general have on children, and to choose an option which will appeal to them as they grow and as preferences change over time. Below are a few expert painting ideas for West Seattle parents who aim to create the perfect space for their kids to call their own now, and 10 years from now.
Yellow is a universal color which can work both boys’ and girls alike depending on the shade that is chosen. A vibrant yellow can make a room appear bright and cheery at all times, even when the sun isn’t necessarily shining outside. Yellow provides energy and radiates youth while coordinating with a wide array of patterns and complementary colors including polka dots and pastels.
A more neutral shade of yellow can portray relaxation, calmness and maturity when paired with light blue or grey accents.
Primarily known to be strictly a color for a boys room, certain shades of blue are versatile enough to work for a girls decor as well. A pale blue can present tranquility and a classic appearance reminiscent of the 1940’s dusty blue which coordinates seamlessly with gold accents while resulting in a classic appearance.
Richer dark blue options are a classic staple as well which are complimented perfectly by silver, dark wood, and gold accents. The right shade of blue can make a room appear more inviting and warm which can portray masculinity or a clean and timeless appearance.
Green is one of the few paint colors known for relaxation, serenity, and peace. Applying a green paint or accent wall to a child’s room will result in a relaxing and calming vibe that even the adults want to spend time in. A pale green paired with white trim can provide a clean and serene space.
Going too bold with green can be a mistake and you want to make sure to select a natural calming green which does not overpower the room.
Lavender or Greys
For a more contemporary and sophisticated room, a lavender or light grey can be the ideal choice. These subtle and classic shades can work in a newborn room all the way up through adulthood when paired with patters such as stripes or coordinating solids.
Softer more soothing colors such as grey or lavender are preferred in a space where sleeping will be a main focus.
