Paint Excitement into Your Child’s Bedroom
Children today are accustomed to many stimulating images, colors, and sounds because of such things as video games and 3D movies. In times like these, it’s a great idea to add stimulation to the décor of your child’s bedroom by painting the walls in rich, imaginative designs and colors. If your child considers his (or her) room a fun sanctuary to call his own, he’ll much more likely be happy to spend many daylight hours playing there.
Know What Your Child Likes
Spend some time with your child looking at sample room ideas or simply talking about his favorite colors and themes. Unless you don’t mind re-doing the room within a year or two, you may want to avoid going with room themes which the child is likely to quickly tire of. The characters which are wildly popular today may be completely out of style in a few short months, when a new kids’ show becomes all the rage.
If your child loves water adventures, you could go with a timeless aquatic theme that’s bright and particularly suited for young ones or that’s more subdued with lively touches.
Whatever theme and color scheme you use, make sure it’s a definite hit with your child.
Basic Guiding Principles
Besides creating a thrilling ambiance, you’ll want to make practical choices, such as opting for paint surfaces that are easy to clean, furniture which has multiple uses, and durable interior paint designs that are suitable for your growing child.
Try Various Paint Techniques
There is no limit to the design you could create in your child’s room, and various faux painting techniques can add dimension to your creation. You can use different sponge textures to blend colors and lightly dab them with a natural sea sponge onto a thoroughly dried base coat. Create a bright sunset at the beach, for example, with realistic foam on the waves.
Paint a castle for your little princess using a plastering technique which adds timeless beauty and charm. Venetian-style plastering creates the imperfections and cracks which are characteristic of old, plastered stone walls. The techniques for this type of plastering can be challenging; why not hire a professional painter to ensure that the outcome of your child’s room is truly an outstanding look?
There’s no need to go with the standard blue for a boy’s room and pink for a girl’s room. Go with a color scheme that perfectly suits your child. Mix and match colors which create a cohesive look that your young one finds irresistible.
Keep in mind that if you have a small space that you want to look larger, you should choose lighter colors. Dark colors cause a room to look smaller.
To achieve a touch of sophistication along with bright neon colors, you can go with a room that’s basically all white and add splashes of color on the furniture, such as brightly colored lamps, rugs, and throw pillows.
Even if your child picks a color that you think is a mistake, you can find ways to make it a focal point in the room without sacrificing good taste. In other words, with some thought and creativity, you and your child could both be thrilled with the rejuvenation of his very own space.
