The Top Room Painting Ideas for Kids
Kids Bedroom painting ideas
We all remember what it was being a kid, having your own bedroom and wanting so badly to make it your own.
A great way to share in your young child’s enthusiasm is to engage them creatively as you transform and personalize their bedroom with paint.
But it’s not easy coming up with kids room color ideas that both you and your child will agree on. They want bright blues and pinks for the bedroom. You want something for your kids bedroom painting that doesn’t clash that much! So it’s very important for you to first know more about how to select paint colors and find information about Interior Paint Color tips.
So here are some painting tips and color ideas that can make it fun, enjoyable and mutually rewarding for everyone involved.
- A colour wheel is a great way to get the creative juices flowing. Take one into your child’s bedroom and test them up against the wall. Find out what your child likes for the room and see what colors can work together for a kids bedroom.
- In general cool colours like blues and greens create a relaxing atmosphere, while yellows and orange color give off more energy and create a vibrant mood.
- A childs room paint color isn’t forever; they will grow out of it. So don’t be afraid to be a tad more “risky” here, but try and keep it to two or three colours.
Children tend to gravitate to the bright colors and exciting primary colours of blue, red and yellow. If that’s the case you can use the brightest colors the least and/or soften them with white paint color.
Kids love mixing things, so you can introduce them to secondary colours of orange, green and purple. Not only will they have fun creating colours for their own room, these shades have a much more organic feel. Visualize a soft green highlighted with mellow yellow. It’s like bringing the lush meadows inside.
- Use paints like your kids furniture. When you paint something like a contrasting stripe around the middle of the bedroom or split the room with two colours it creates a focal point. This technique will highlight shelves, desktop decorations and pictures adding texture to the room.
- If you have some artistic skills, you can get additives at most craft stores to make paint glow in the dark. You can dedicate a space to add stars, your child’s name or planets that come to life at bedtime.
In the end it’s all about having fun with your child and creating something you both can enjoy for years to come. By spending the time before hand researching colours and looking at pictures of other renovations (check out our Interior painting Ideas and also some of our Before/After painting photos ) you’ll be well on your way to creating a room your child will always remember.
