Another option is to combine colors in the nursery, colors that are the same range of tones or otherwise seek contrasts. The pastel shades of beige or brown can blend well with pink, blue or green. Another more daring option is to combine the classic colors pink and blue with the gray color, which is very fashionable.
If vivid colors predominate, it is advisable to combine walls in stronger tones with softer ones so that a “strident” mixture does not result.
If the room is quite spacious and we have enough space we can paint different areas using different colors: rest area, play area, study … For the study area we recommend the light colors that favor tranquility and concentration.
A light color does not mean boring
Neutral tones or pastels, beige and even the total target does not have to be boring. The furniture or the decoration, the bedding, the pictures … can always give a touch of color, contrast. Moreover, these shades are ideal to decorate with decorative vinyl stickers, style that you like or like a child.
There vinyl’s for the walls of all sizes, shapes and colors. From the more traditional ones with floral motifs or children’s figures to those that represent a forest or move us to a castle or to outer space, abstract figures … Vinyl’s must be placed when the paint is dry and have the advantage that they are Easier (and cheaper) to change than all the color of the walls. Then, if the child changes tastes, or we get tired of those drawings, you can change the decoration of the room with new vinyl.
Another option for a piece of the walls of the children’s room (or one of them entirely) is chalkboard paint, which go beyond the black. There are paintings of slate of many colors, we can cover a greater or smaller space, make shapes with it as a clock, a mountain, a building … Yes it is recommended not to put it too close to the bed so that the chalk does not leave traces in that place.
Finally, wallpaper and decorated with prints, striped … it is another option that can be placed on smooth walls (or on one of the walls).
It is no longer a matter of taste or feelings, but there are certain paintings that we must avoid. Of course, buy them in establishments with permission and that are approved and look that do not contain heavy metals. In this sense, there is the option of ecological, natural paints, ceramic paints … with non-toxic raw materials and with very little odor.
Another recommendation is to paint the room when the baby or child is not at home and to provide good ventilation before you have to sleep in that room (in fact, if possible, better if you sleep somewhere else for a few days to avoid The strong smell of paint). In this way we prevent respiratory problems, allergies and even possible accidents.
Regarding accidents, remember to prevent children’s access to half-painted rooms and discuss the existing risks. Keep paints, solvents, etc. away from your reach as serious poisonings may occur. We want to do a good job with painting the child’s room and with a happy ending, without any fuss.
