Choosing Colours for Your Child’s Bedroom
There are lots of things to consider when choosing colours for your child’s bedroom. Growing families change quickly and you might be finding it hard to keep up with what’s cool and what’s not.
Don’t worry, 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’ll need t decide on a colour scheme. Colours reflect upon our moods, and this should definitely be something you take into account when choosing the decor in your child’s bedroom.
The right room can promote the right balance and help your child’s wellbeing as they grow. After all, this is their personal space, so you want to get it right.
The first thing you should do is consult with your child (depending on their age) and see what they think. After that, glean some pearls of wisdom from the following tips we’ve compiled and contact us if you want any additional help:
Growing is Changing
Children grow fast and their taste and requirements change just as fast, so this is a big consideration when fitting out a new bedroom for a small child. Dinosaurs soon give way to spaceships, and Barbie dolls are left abandoned in favour of make up, so it’s worth choosing a colour scheme that will stand the test of time.
Choosing two or three colours that work together is a great idea for your child’s room, and deciding on 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 often bold so bigger colours could be an option too.
If you want to employ the ancient art of Feng Shui, then you may want to work according to 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
A top tip is to pick up some little tester pots and try out some ideas on the walls before you start. Bright colours look great in the tin but can often be a bit overwhelming when they are actually on the walls, which is why they are usually best saved for block features, handles and accessories.
