Colour fit for choosy kids
Children can be picky but these bedroom colour schemes will stand the test of time
Children change their tastes almost as often as they change their shoe size, so it’s a good idea to choose a versatile palette that will grow with them when you move to a new house.
1. Yellow and grey
Bold yellows and greys can pack a real punch, making them a great choice for teenagers who want to express themselves. Go for softer tones and they’ll work just as well for a soothing, gender-neutral nursery.
2. Perfect pastels
Pastels never go out of style and give a calming feel that’s just right for a bedroom. Used carefully and they can work equally well for boys and girls. Soft blues have a delicate, feminine feel when teamed with white, while pale pinks work well as accents against masculine blues or greys.
3. Fresh greens
Green is an invigorating choice which, again, works just as well for girls as it does for boys. Better still, green aids concentration, making it a brain-boosting choice for kids doing their homework in their bedrooms.
4. Flexible neutrals
Neutrals don’t have to be dull Use them as the base for your scheme then add a few bright splashes of colour in the bedding and accessories for a fun, youthful look.
5. Writing on the wall
Blackboard paint adds a sense of fun to a scheme – but it’s a practical choice too.
