Colour combination for your children's bedroom

Children’s moods are affected by their environments, and that includes the colours in their room. Pick from our list of best paint colour combinations.

Did you know that the best place to let your imaginations run wild is your children’s bedroom? Bright colours and fun schemes are what children’s bedrooms are all about. Whether your child is calm and sweet, energetic or playful or a mixture of two, there is always a paint colour combination suitable for them.

And remember, colour influences the mood and has different effects on children. Psychologists and interior designers are stressing on the importance of choosing the right paint colours for kids’ rooms. If you’ve noticed how kindergarten classrooms are always cheerful with colours like yellow. So let us explore some of the most refreshing paint colour combinations for your kids’ rooms, shall we?

Yellow and Magenta Is A Cheerful Paint Colour Combination

Sunny and cheerful, the colour yellow can liven up any space. It is a stimulating colour and pairs with other colour palettes effortlessly. It also adapts itself to any decor scheme as well. In this case, it’s magenta – notice how the pairing of yellow with it in this bedroom makes it feel so lively? Bright magenta cabinets and yellow accents on the geometric patterned wall makes this area a fun place to chill.

A Combination Of Purple And Orange

Two bold colours on the opposite side of the spectrum, but when paired together, they can create a magnificent look. Purple is a colour that inspires sensitivity, thoughtfulness and spirituality and if used in a kid’s bedroom it can help slow down their restless pace. Orange is a cheerful colour and has been shown to enhance communication and socialisation skills. This children’s bedroom in the image depicts the perfect balance of both colours. While the entire room is purple, orange accents make the whole space pop with creativity.

Light Pink And Brown

Topping the list for a girl’s room is the colour pink. Calming, empathetic and nurturing, the colour pink influences children to behave in a more caring and considerate way. Too much pink can be irritating and can cause headaches, and this is where brown comes into play. Brown is an earthy tone that can help children feel stable and grounded. The image here shows us a perfectly balanced use of both so that they don’t overshadow each other. Different hues of brown are used in the entire bedroom from walls, cabinets, and hardwood flooring but in a manner that is not overpowering. Pretty pink accents have been for the chair and pillows. Subtle decor makes this colour combination a hit.

Green And White Bring In Freshness

Bring in the freshness of nature and outdoors into your child’s bedroom. Some studies indicate that green can increase a child’s ability to read. So if you choose this colour scheme be sure that homework will be done in a jiffy. Green blends well with white so why not add white accents? The image here shows how green and white can merge into one and make it a sedate affair. Forest green walls, floating white shelves, a matching polka dot bed and cupboard makes this room feel like an enchanting jungle.

Deep Blue And White

A classic pairing! Blue and white is timeless. Nothing can go wrong if you opt for this magical colour combination. If your child throws tantrums then blue is the optimal choice as it lowers the heart rate, blood pressure and calms down hyper moods. Too much blue can be overwhelming so balance it out with white and other neutral colours such as grey. The bedroom in this image shows how blue, white and grey find comfort in each other. The wardrobe here is the focal point of the interior design of this kids bedroom with a ‘smiley’ icon etched on the shutters. Fun and colourful accents are used such as yellow pillows, a Mickey Mouse bed sheet, and a colourful chair to complete the ensemble.

Go For Striking Greys and Neutrals

The colour grey can be a tough one to crack but can be striking when used as an accent colour. This children’s bedroom in the image here features a timeless colour combination. There are plenty of greys, white and beige, making this room full of neutral relaxing colours that work together. The wardrobe with Bugs Bunny drawn on the shutter is the highlight of this bedroom.
