Moms know best!! That’s what they all say. You save up cash then you go ahead and repaint your daughter’s room. But, she gets home and instead of embracing you, she cries hysterically accusing you of painting her room in the worst colors ever! Wouldn’t you feel like the worst mom ever?
Well, colors are magical and add spark to life but to avoid such heartbreaking scenarios, consider the following when choosing the color scheme of your child’s room:
The color on your newborn’s room will be different from that of you pre-teen son or daughter. Newborns’ and toddlers’ rooms have to be painted in subtle colors. These colors must be comfortable enough for them to sleep peacefully and not too dark to scare them.
On the other hand, older children can have their rooms painted in bolder colors and most of them will shy away from blue and pink colors. Teenagers can have white and off whites painted walls since they are old enough to clean up after themselves.
Spending time with your kid(s) not only creates a strong mother-child bond, but it is also beneficial in helping you understand their preferences. Trust is built when you paint their room a color or colors of their choice. This will result in a happy home. Listening when your kid(s) talk with their friends or siblings will also give you a good idea on the color to paint their rooms. This builds your child’s confidence and self-esteem.
It’s prudent to paint your daughter’s or son’s room using colors that complement their personalities. Extroverted kids tend to prefer bright colors while your shy/introverted child will go for milder shades of these colors.
Aggressive kids that tend to hold a temper should have their rooms painted in colors that will calm them. Painting his/her room bright red will only aggravate their emotional states. Darker shades of red tend to be subtle and with calming effects. Purple, deep blue, grey, shades of orange, burgundy or maroon will easily calm your aggressive kid(s).
You slow your sickly kid’s recovery by making their rooms look gloomy and hospital like. Give your child’s room and your home a calming/ ‘healing’ effect by incorporating subtle colors. Some shades of green, purple, bright color blocks, blue, grey can speed up their recovery.
Kids with cerebral palsy have better developed cognitive abilities when you let them stay in brightly cultured rooms.
