What colors to use in the kids room

Many people think that they should make their kids bedroom really colorful just because this room is specially designed for children. But some experts and psychologists say that a wide range of vivid colors only make the children tired and they will feel uncomfortable in their room. That is why my advice as a mother that has read a lot of expert advice, but has also seen that advice in practice is to paint the walls of your kids  in very warm colors – pastels. They induce a calm atmosphere and , besides, the toys that can be found all over the kids room are colorful enough. Take a look at this room in the picture that is prepared for kids. Would you like to live in there? I don’t think so. And neither would the children.

That being said I am all for pale shades of blue, green, beige and pink – if your kids are girls. And I also suggest that you should use some extra visual effects to match the color and that can be easily painted by hand. For example if your kids room is painted in light blue, just add some white clouds on the ceiling and upper part of the walls and you will see your kids will love it.

If you choose light green as the background, you can add some tall grass and even flowers and if your kids are able to draw – if they are in kindergarten already – maybe you can ask them to help you with this task and the satisfaction will be double.

For a yellow background for your walls, try adding some wheat, a sandy beach or sunflowers – if you are skilled enough or if you found some patterns. Every child is special so prepare a special room for yours.
