Stripes of Sophistication

Using paint to decorate the kids’ room has plenty of advantages that go beyond the obvious. While the fabulous array of colors and the many hues help in creating a lovely, vibrant setting, the true charm of paint is showcased when you create a change in color scheme. While keeping the walls white and adding colorful decor is attractive, it will not be too long before your kids grow out of the current color phase! Instead, use paint to usher in the color of the season, and you can switch over to a different shade at any time in the future with little fuss.

‘Stripes’ is the hottest paint trend of the season for boys’ bedrooms. A simple accent wall in a striped pattern adds refined elegance and trendy sophistication to the room. Most of these striped patterns work well for kids across various age groups and look ultra-cool even in hip teen rooms.

The Classic Blue and White

Blue is a color that you simply cannot go wrong with when it comes to painting a boy’s bedroom. The various shades of blue fit in well with themes that range from the classic nautical style to the patriotic stars and stripes. You can use gentler hues of blue along with white to create a breezy coastal interior. Add a few corals and maybe a surfboard or two and you are all set with a boy’s bedroom that has a distinct look.

The many shades of blue give you great flexibility while choosing the paint shade, and you can even use it to create a classy teen bedroom that can easily double as an adult retreat. Blue is often combined with white and red, but it also goes well with other bright shades like orange and yellow. While blue boys’ bedrooms are pretty popular, think out of the box and improvise with accessories to design a truly unique space that reflects your child’s personality.

Give Wings to your Kids’ Dreams!

Use paint to add those intricate extra touches to the boys’ bedroom–it’s details like these that make a room special and ‘one of a kind’. Creative wall painting and ingenious wall murals are a great way to usher in a theme and accentuate it with style and finesse. Paint those cabinets green and add a giant scoreboard mural on the wall to bring in a baseball theme. You can even use the colors of your child’s favorite football or basketball team to create an inspirational space that he will instantly fall in love with. It is all about being resourceful and imaginative!

Maximizing the Small Bedroom

While painting a room is indeed mostly about aesthetics, there are many functional advantages as well. A clever paint job in a small bedroom can make it seem visually a lot larger than it really is. With most urban homes featuring compact rooms, it is a good idea to paint a child’s bedroom in a color scheme that reduces visual fragmentation of the space. In small boys’ rooms, it is best to not use more than three colors. If you are painting a teen bedroom that is tiny, then opt for cool, neutral tones like grey and combine them with deftly placed accent colors.

The color scheme that you select for a boy’s bedroom must be a combination of form and function. Get the kids involved in the process of picking the shades that will surround them in their personal haven. You will often be surprised with the amazing input that they bring to the table! The best way forward is to keep things simple, uncluttered and uncomplicated.
