walls of children’s roomsDo you want to give your child’s room a new look but are not very keen on incurring the expenses that come along with revamping the décor of your room? Well, if your answer is in the affirmative then you will be glad to know that giving a room a brand new appearance need not always be an expensive affair. And one of the best and most pocket friendly ways to redo the décor of kids’ room is to give the rooms a fresh coat of color. Paint is a quite inexpensive home décor tool and to add to the fun you can ask your child to choose the color which he wants his room to be painted in.

As far as kids’ rooms are concerned, you should always opt for some bright and dreamy color; and do remember that bright colors are not necessarily loud colors. However, if your kid is a fan of very bright and loud colors then you can paint one wall of his room in his favorite color. For kids who are less than ten years old colors like sunshine yellow, sky blue and soothing apple green will work very well. For older kids, neutral colors are the best bets. Paint will freshen up a room and add live to it almost immediately and you can be rest assured that your child will love it. Since kids are prone to making the walls a mess, always opt for semi gloss wall paints so that you can clean the mess without much hassle.

While painting the walls, make sure that foundation part of the wall is two shades darker than the rest of the wall. Have fun with your kid by putting his colorful handprints on the border area. Wall decals and murals are also good choices for decorating the walls of a child’s room.
