Painting your childs bedroom might seem like a big and ambitious project, especially if you take the task on yourself, but if it is done right, you could save yourself a lot of money and still have a professional result.
We will give you some kids room paint ideas, to help you on your way, whether it is for a toddler, or teen bedroom. With the right materials and handy tips, you will have your child’s room make-over completed in no time!
But before you start painting your childs bedroom, take some time to think of a few important things like:
- The age of your child
- What budget do I have
- Will I be changing the look in a couple of years
- What are my childs favourite colors and activities
Choose the right paint
There will be lots of choice when choosing paint for a kids bedroom, but remember to look for paint that is scratch resistant and is easy to wash to remove any stains.
Most paint manufactures are now producing a variety of natural low-VOC and zero-VOC paints, which are durable, cost effective and less harmful for you and your child. Some of the benefits of low-VOC and zero-VOC paints are that the reduced toxins benefit people with allergies, there is low odor during application so the room can be occupied sooner, and they are water-based so any spillage is easy cleaned up with water and soap.
Kids love colors, so why not let your child pick his or her favourite color and work together to choose the right combination of colors to paint the walls. Just remember to choose the paint one shade lighter then your color sample because once the paint the whole wall, the color will look darker.
When considering redecorating your childs bedroom, you might consider a unique paint design that can be used on the wall of the room. Some popular paint ideas and designs used for kids bedrooms are:
- polka dots
Off course if you think painting all 4 walls with a design might be too much too handle, you could just pick 1 wall and make this the stand out feature wall with your unique paint design.
If you are looking for a creative way to paint the walls but don’t have an artistic bone in your body, then wall stencils are the answer for you. With do-it-yourself wall stencil kits any parent can create a wall mural with no artistic skills required. Wall stencils come in many different designs, from a colplete farm design with animals to floral stencils.
