5 Things to Consider Before Painting a Child’s Bedroom


For children, their room serves as their personal sanctuary. Since kids’ tastes change so frequently, you might be unsure of how you should paint their bedroom. To help you out, we have come up with five things you should think about before painting a child’s bedroom.

It’s more than a bedroom

Your child’s bedroom is a massive part of their development throughout their childhood years. They’ll be playing, studying, and sleeping in their room. Make sure you keep that in mind before making any painting decisions. 

Think about the future

Kids grow extremely fast and so does their style. If you decide to paint their bedroom that solely reflects how old they currently are, there is a good chance you will find yourself repainting the room in a year or two. Find a balance of what they want now and what you project they will like in the future. 

Ask them for input

Even though you will be the one paying for everything, your child should have the most impact in determining how their bedroom should be painted. Give them a lot of different options so they can get the look they want and so you can get a better understanding of their tastes. With that said, don’t give them free rein as they may pick something they won’t like in a year. 

Don’t be afraid to be bold

While kids’ tastes can change quickly, a child’s bedroom shouldn’t be too conservative. Regardless of how far you project to the future, chances are you’ll end up painting again at some point. You can afford to be a little more creative when it comes to their color scheme as long as you understand their tastes. 

Feature walls are a hot trend

A feature wall is a wall in a room that differs in design from the other walls. They are great in a child’s bedroom as they allow you to reserve one wall to be extremely bold. When your child outgrows the design of the feature wall, you can repaint that wall instead of the whole room. 

Taking these considerations into account before painting a child’s bedroom will go a long way in achieving an optimal result.
