Painting your kid’s bedroom is the perfect opportunity to experiment with creative color schemes and designs. Interior decorating rules are much less strict for kid bedrooms as they’re generally meant to be more bright and fun than any other room in your house. With this in mind, here are a few things to consider when painting your child’s bedroom.
Ask Your Child What They Want
Your child should be able to have a say in the design of his or her room. Obviously, children can get a little bit carried away with their creativity, so you might have to help them make a more realistic decision. However, you should remember that this room is for your kid, not you.
Your Kid Won’t Be a Kid Forever
It’s important to remember that your child will eventually grow up. So, while it can be tempting to take advantage of the creative opportunities offered by decorating a kid’s room, you should keep the future in mind when deciding which colors and decorations to use.
Narrowing Down the Colors
There are many factors to consider when deciding which colors you are going to use. You don’t want to take your kid’s favorite color and just throw it up on the walls.
First of all, the colors you decide to use can have a very real effect on your child’s mood and behavior. Color psychology explains how different colors might influence your kid’s behavior. For example, painting the walls bright red or orange can make it difficult for your child to fall asleep.
Furthermore, you are going to want to choose a color that is versatile enough to adapt to any changes you might make to the room as time goes on. Many people ultimately opt for subtle blue, green, or gray tones in their bedrooms because they are easy to decorate around, and are very soothing.
