Selecting a color for your baby’s nursery can be overwhelming. Should you go for a traditional pastel, or choose pink for a girl? Or should you go bold and paint the walls bright yellow? Before you bring in the interior painters, here are some options to consider.
How to Choose the Best Colors for Your Baby’s Room
1. Use Accents to Go Bold
If you’re interested in painting the walls a bold color, go for it! However, if you want something traditional but exciting, you can use bright colors in moderation. Have your interior painters paint an accent wall in the nursery. It will brighten up the space and add some pizazz.
2. Settle on a Theme
If you’re having trouble picking a color, think about a theme first. Certain themes require specific colors. You can’t do an underwater theme without blue, and green needs to be incorporated into a jungle theme. This can give you a starting point.
3. Consider Calming Colors
Human brains respond differently to different colors. Relaxing colors will help your baby calm down to get to sleep or stop crying. Some calming colors include subdued shades of blue, green, pink, and purple. Neutrals like beige and white serve this purpose as well.
4. Think Long-Term
Your child won’t be a baby forever. Assuming they’ll stay in the same room as they grow up, it’s a good idea to pick colors that child will like as they get older. Consider the future before you decide on any paint colors unless you want to hire interior painters again in a few years.
