Designing a boys’ room is not a task for the faint of heart! It takes plenty of haggling, some smart compromises and a few creative ideas to reach a common ground that is agreeable to both the adults and the kids. Yet, there are a few simple ways in which you can design and decorate a boys’ bedroom without going overboard on the budget. Paint not only enables you to alter the look of a room almost instantly, but it does in a cost-effective manner. As the popular adage goes, when in doubt, simply paint it!
But a beautiful color palette is not just about designing on a budget. It brings a kids’ room alive even while giving you the flexibility to change between styles and color schemes without too much hassle. While the theme of the boys’ room obviously determines the paint choices you make, you can always add an element of surprise with a splash of an exotic shade. These boys’ room paint ideas show you how to get the job done with flair…

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.

The many shades of blue give you great flexibility while choosing the paint shade and you can even use it to create classy teen bedroom that can easily double up as adult retreat. 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.

Give Wings to your Kids’ Dreams!
Use paint to add those additional intricate touches to the boys’ bedroom that makes them special and ‘one of a kind’. Creative wall painting and ingenious wall murals are a great way to usher in a theme and accentuate it with style and finesse. Paint those cabinets green and add a giant scoreboard mural on the wall to bring in a baseball theme. You can even use the colors of your kids’ favorite football or basketball team to create an inspirational space that he will instantly fall in love with. It is all about being resourceful and imaginative!

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 color scheme that you select for the boys’ bedroom must be a combination of form and function. Get the kids involved in the process of picking the shades that will surround them in their personal haven. You will be often surprised with the amazing inputs that they bring to the table! The best way forward is to keep things simple, uncluttered and uncomplicated.
