4 Ways to Use Colour in Kids’ Bedrooms

children's room paint ideas

Kids grow up so fast. And, while it might be tempting to paint their bedrooms bright pink, fluoro yellow, or sky blue, in a couple of years they won’t like it anymore. In this article, we’ll share with you our top 4 children’s room paint ideas. We will look at three ways you can incorporate colour in kids bedrooms without painting all four walls a garish hue. Let’s get right into it.

1. Paint a feature wall

Is your 5-year-old begging for a purple or green bedroom? You know that such a bold colour will overwhelm the space, and you are well aware that in two or three years they won’t like it anymore. Our advice: compromise with a feature wall.

Feature walls are a fabulous way to incorporate colour without fully committing. By painting just one wall, a room feels bigger and more open. What’s more, you can use the accent colour to highlight unique architectural features.

In addition to traditional feature wall, you can use wallpaper to add pattern and texture, or create a bold, geometric shape on one wall.

2. Opt for a pastel shade

Kids love bright colours, but with a little effort, you can convince them that a pastel shade is a better option.

Pastel colours are on-trend, and are much more versatile than their more saturated counterparts. Because they are airy and bright, these delicate hues reflect light, making a space appear larger than it is.

Shades to consider include duck egg blue, dusky pink, and sherbet yellow.

3. Make the most of the décor

If repainting isn’t an option, you can channel your child’s love of colour through bedroom décor. Here are a few items you can use to create a cohesive, kid-friendly, colourful space:

  • Wall art. You can purchase prints and posters in-store or online, and stick them in a frame. Not only is wall art inexpensive, it’s also easy to change up as your kid’s interest develop over the years.
  • Bedding and other soft furnishings. Think doona covers, cushions, and throws.
  • Floor coverings. Don’t discount the floor! Rug stores stock a whole range of floor coverings that not only add a boost of colour, but also make a comfy place for you kids to play.

4. Use Eco Friendly Paint

Perhaps the most important among all of the children’s room paint ideas we mentioned is the use eco-friendly paint. Traditional paints contain chemicals and substances that can cause damage to humans and animals as well as the environment. Here at Kraudelt Painting, we have taken the initiative to use paints that are low in Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) when possible. Paint with low VOC have little to no smell, can minimise air pollution and are generally safer paint fumes that are unlikely to irritate the eyes, nose, or throat.
