Stripes of Sophistication

Using paint to decorate the kids’ room has plenty of advantages that go beyond the obvious. While the fabulous array of colors and the many hues help in creating a lovely and vibrant setting, the true charm of paint is showcased when you are going in for a change in the color scheme. While keeping the walls white and adding colorful decor is attractive, it will not be too long before your kids grow out of the current color phase! Instead, use paint to usher in the color of the season and you can switch over to a different shade at any time in the future with little fuss.

The Classic Blue and White

Blue is a color that you simply cannot go wrong with when it comes to painting boys’ bedroom. The various shades of blue fit in well with themes that range from the classic nautical style to the patriotic stars and stripes. You can use gentler hues of blue along with white to create a breezy coastal interior. Add a few corals and maybe a surfboard or 2 and you are all set with a boys’ bedroom that has a distinct look.

While blue is often combined with white and red, it also goes well along with other bright shades like orange and yellow. While blue boys’ bedrooms are pretty popular, think out of the box and improvise with accessories so as to design a truly inimitable space that reflects your kids’ personality.

Maximizing the Small Bedroom

While painting a room is indeed mostly about aesthetics, there are many functional advantages as well. A clever paint job in a small bedroom can make it seem visually a lot larger than it really is. With most urban homes featuring compact rooms, it is a good idea to paint the kids’ bedroom in a color scheme that reduces visual fragmentation of space. In small boys’ rooms, it is best to not use more than 3 colors. If you are painting a teen bedroom that is tiny, then opt for cool, neutral tones like grey and combine them with deftly placed accent colors.

The best way forward is to keep things simple, uncluttered and uncomplicated.
