The choice of color to decorate children's and youth rooms is a fundamental factor to achieve a complete decoration. We usually reduce the range of possibilities to the typical blue or pink, especially when it comes to the rooms of the smallest. But there are many more colors to choose from and we will show you nine colors that, in their different tonalities, can allow us to expand the field of choice.
As it comes to painting bedrooms and also for children or teenagers it is important to hit the color tone that we like. We will always work with clear tonalities who believe quiet and relaxing environments so that the little ones are comfortable. Although we can also choose some colors in brighter hues when we want to create more vibrant environments . And we always have to play with the color combinations to create contrasts that bring interest to the decoration.
The light blue can cover a whole room without being heavy, on the contrary it is relaxing and we do not have to restrict it only to the rooms of the children. We can also use it in a girl's room without any doubt. In more intense shades it will be useful to combine it with other colors, the mixture of intense blue and white produces a very interesting contrast.
White can be used both in a baby's room and in a child's room of any age. It gives us a wide margin to combine with details in bright colors. It is ideal when the room we want to decorate is not particularly bright.
On the other hand, when the room is bright, it may be interesting to resort to the gray that will produce a certain attenuation of that excess of light. The main quality of gray is the large number of shades it supports and also combines with any color. Any color detail on a gray background stands out without being extrident.
The magenta may be a somewhat daring color, it may seem a little risqué for a children's room but it is great for a wall, the headboard of the bed for example or to combine with blank walls.
- Brown or toasted
Brown is another neutral tone that allows us a wide range of possibilities, from using it as a neutral background in a low intensity tone to using it to highlight an area of the room if we use a strong tone.
The purple is another color that used in a strong tone allows us to combine it with whites, blues and greens with total tranquility. In a clear tone like lavender it also serves as background to paint the entire room.
The pink does not have to be the color of the princesses, although of course it can also be, in an intense tone allows us to use it as a contrasting element.
Turquoise we can use it like blue but also combines very well with shades of pink, gray, brown and green. It is a color that grows with your children, we can use it with the little ones but also with the older ones. It is a very versatile color with relaxing effects.
Green is another of the colors that will allow us great combinations of color in the children's room. A color that brings a natural air to the decoration and that is very stimulating. It can also be used as a primary, background or secondary color to enhance a part of the room.
