Choosing Colours For Your Childs Bedroom

Choosing colours For Your Childs Bedroom

When choosing colours for your childs bedroom there are lots of things to consider. Growing families change quickly and you might be finding it’s hard to keep up. Don’t worry because we can help with all the practical stuff, which leaves you time to think about design and the aesthetics of your child’s room.

If you’re having a new fitted bedroom to suit their growing needs then you need a colour scheme. Colours reflect upon our moods, and this should definitely be a considered option for your child’s room. The right room can promote the right balance and help your child’s well being as they grow. This is their personal space after all, so you’ll want to get it right.

The first thing you should do is consult with your child if possible, aside from that here are some helpful tips for choosing a colour scheme for your childs bedroom.

  • Growing is Changing
    • Children grow fast and their taste and requirements change just as fast so this is a big consideration when fitting a new bedroom for a small child. Dinosaurs soon give way to space ships, Barbie dolls to make up, so it’s worth choosing a colour scheme that will grow with your child.
  • Colour Combinations
    • Choosing two or three colours that work together is a great idea for your child’s room, and coming up with a theme can help with that. If you’re trying to create a tranquil, outdoorsy space then greens and neutral shades are definitely your friend, but kids are bold so go with that!
  • Feng Shui
    • If you want to employ the ancient art of Feng Shui then you may want to work within your child’s personality. Blue and black are tied to plentifulness and ease and confidence; grey and white with precision, clarity and focus, and earthy tones are said to promote stability and nourishment.
  • Test some Options
    • You can pick up little tester pots and try out some ideas on the walls before you start. Bright colours look great in the tin but can be a bit overbearing and best saved for block features, handles and accessories.
