9 Kids’ Room Paint Color Ideas

How to Choose a Paint Color for a Kid’s Room
A kid’s room or nursery can be one of the most fun places in your home to decorate. This is not the time to go conservative. Be playful, especially when it comes to paint color. But how do you narrow your choices? We turned to interior design and color experts to learn their best tips for choosing the right color for your child’s room.
Get your kid’s input
“If your child is old enough, consider letting them help select paint colors for their room, allowing them to express their own unique creativity!” says PPG Paints senior color marketing manager Amy Donato. “Let them choose a color family and then choose the specific shade to help match the décor and style of the rest of the room.”
Test the color virtually
Explore the paint color online before making a decision.
“Take advantage of paint brand websites that offer virtual color simulators, so you can show your child how it might look on four walls,” says interior designer and color expert Diana Hathaway. “Some sites feature a photo upload option so you can see exactly how the color will look in their room.”
Consider mood
Different colors can evoke different moods in your child. So when choosing a paint color, think about the type of emotional environment you want to create in their room. “If you want to instill a sense of calm and relaxation in your child’s room, turn to cool blues and subtle greens,” Donato says.
Warm colors like yellow and orange can help increase energy, improve mood and stimulate creativity, according to Color Psychology. Keep in mind these might not be great choices if your child has trouble unwinding at bedtime.
