Are you a future parent or simply want to redesign your little one’s room? There are so many colors to consider. Pink if you have a girl and blue for a boy? Not really, since this attribution by genre has been outdated for a long time. Let’s forget the conventional of yesteryear to let other colors speak: those that stimulate creativity, those that promote concentration, those that have an invigorating or soothing effect, etc. Not all colors are suitable for a young child’s room but many are charming and put in a nice energy. Here are 8 trendy colors and their effect. It’s up to you to choose the one that suits you best!
1 – Green, stimulating and relaxing
Are your children little explorers or just curious children? Then opt for the green color. A nice warm light green, why not? Green tones are just as neutral as yellow, which is also a great color for a nursery because it strikes the perfect balance between stimulation and relaxation. Green is versatile: it has a vitalizing and invigorating effect, but at the same time a relaxing and soothing effect. It stimulates creativity and at the same time promotes concentration – a suitable combination for your baby’s room. You can combine green with strong colors like orange. A mix of different shades of green also ensures a harmonious overall ambience.
2 – Yellow, warm and cheerful
Yellow is one of the most popular nursery colors because it exudes joie de vivre and serenity. It is a rather neutral color that puts you in a good mood. Yellow tones make you optimistic and confident, appear warm, and therefore fit perfectly into the four walls of the bedrooms of our dear little ones. In the most varied shades, from soft vanilla to bright sunny yellow, this color is perfect for your baby’s room. If the “classic” yellow is too bright for you, you can opt for a more pastel shade.
3 – Ultra-trendy purple, lilac, parma
Purple is one of the absolute trend colors. It’s a typical color for babies’ or toddlers’ rooms – purple is almost as popular as pink, but it’s not quite as “princess” due to its cooler look. If you don’t like “princess” pink, this can be a good compromise. In addition, the color violet, lilac or parma is said to increase creativity, have a positive effect on mental balance and promote determination. Not such a bad choice for your child, is it? And this color isn’t necessarily just for a baby girl’s room. Delicate lilac tones that go in the direction of gray or blue are also well suited for a baby boy’s room.
4 – Fairy Tale Rose
Even if the old clichés die hard, pink is still one of the favorite colors of little girls. A child’s room all in pink is the dream of many little girls who want to feel like princesses within their own four walls. Are you one of the skeptical parents? After all, the color pink also has its advantages. For example, it seems to reduce aggression. Light pink and pastel pink have a positive effect on children’s feelings and mood, as they calm and balance. Pink is said to create security, so it’s a great choice for restless or anxious toddlers and babies. However, this of course does not apply to bright pink, which – like all very intense bright colors – tends to create a stir. If pink is too strong, it can have an “effervescent” effect like red. Use soft pastel shades instead and only use bright pink sparingly.
5 – White, safe bet
White still works! Many parents choose white in their children’s room because it has a neutral effect, makes the room appear friendlier, more spacious and brighter and becomes the ideal backdrop for colorful touches, such as accessories, fun furniture and toys. It’s no wonder then that white is one of the most popular colors in children’s rooms. It’s a safe and simple solution that you can’t go wrong with.
6 – Harmonious Blue
Once considered a classic color for baby boys’ rooms, blue is now being used for girls’ rooms as well. No wonder, because the color palette offers shades for every taste. In addition, blue is the favorite color of many children. In general, blue not only makes the bedroom feel bright and fresh, but also has a calming and soothing effect. To make your room not look too cold, combine different shades of blue such as light blue, gray blue and dark blue. This creates a harmonious balance. Blue is particularly effective with white accessories.
7 – Neutral gray
Think gray as a nursery color for a baby is dark, dreary and boring? Think again ! At the moment, it’s not just light gray that’s in fashion for adult bedrooms, it also cuts a fine figure for children’s and baby rooms. As a neutral color, gray is suitable for any children’s room and visually guarantees calm, clarity and order. In addition, a light gray not only looks very stylish and modern, but also forms a neutral backdrop for colorful accessories, furniture and toys, so your baby’s room in the end looks anything but a boring bedroom.
8 – Subtle natural tones
A solution that is just as neutral as gray is the range of natural tones. They are welcome in a baby’s room because they exude warmth and security. Brown, beige and sand tones have a soothing and natural effect. So that everything does not become boring and remains suitable for children, you can, for example, use wallpapers with cheerful patterns and drawings that compensate for the lack of color when decorating your wall.
