Choosing the Right Paint Colors for your Kid’s room

Painting your kid’s room can be a fun activity. Synonymous to children is imagination, and with this project, you can let your imagination run wild.

Choosing the right paint color

Your job is half done if your child is old enough to give you their color preference. Going with your kid’s choice of color allows them to express their own unique taste and personality.

However, there are a few things to keep in mind while making the final color decision.

Colors have a proven effect on us. Color psychology needs to be an important consideration while finalizing your paint combination. While lighter paint shades tend to have a soothing effect, a dash of vibrancy is sure to be uplifting. It is important to achieve a balance between the two. You can go for deep blue or bright yellow paint shades to stimulate your child with a feature wall, while opting for subtle, pastel shades for the rest of the room.

Opting for patterns

 

It is not only the colors that you can play with, patterns are something you can definitely consider for your kid’s room.

One of the easiest, yet interesting choices would be a polka dot pattern. It will definitely add a pop to the wall. Another way to go would be geometric or abstract patterns. These are easy to create with just masking tape and will leave you with a super cool room.

Tackling a teenager’s room:

If you are wondering how to paint your teenager’s room, the best answer is to go for neutral, earthy tones. Besides creating a comforting effect, neutral tones like taupe or smoky grey are more adaptable as your teen’s tastes change and also make for a perfect canvas for them to put up photographs, posters and other decorative pieces.

Choosing the right type of paint

Important factors to have in mind while choosing your paint are durability, stain resistance and washability of the paint. Such a paint will ensure that the room looks as good as new while allowing your child to be free in their activities. Our Fortuna Silk Acrylic Emulsion may be the perfect choice for you.

Another route you can take is to have a wall painted with chalk board paint. This is a great way to create a space for your kid to have fun.

Getting the right painting tools

Usually, both a brush and a roller come in handy to get the best paint finish.

Synthetic bristles are the best for emulsion paints as it doesn’t absorb water. On the other hand, natural bristles are better suited for enamel paint.

There are three types of roller to choose from for your interior painting. They come in three pile lengths - short, medium and long. For fine surfaces, go for short pile. Medium pile will work for smooth or generic wall texture. Long pile is recommended for textured wall surface.

The most important thing to remember is to enjoy the process. Unlike house paint, painting your kid’s room can be playful. Happy imagining!
