MAKE YOUR KIDS HAPPY
Change can unsettle children but here are five ways colour can help make moving home a magical experience
The colours you choose for your child’s bedroom can really boost the way they feel about their new environment, giving them that sense of security and happiness they crave.
1. Create consistency
One way to give children a sense of stability after a move is to paint their new bedroom in the same colours as their old room. This will instantly make the new space feel more familiar, and make kids feel happier about being there.
2. Paint with happy hues
Warm tones such as oranges and sunny yellows have an uplifting effect on the mood, and could help kids feel more positive about their new home.
3. Calm down with pastels
Moving house is a hectic time, so why not create a serene retreat for your children with soothing pastel tones? You can go for practically any colour you like – the key is to keep the intensity of the hue low for a calm, relaxed feel.
4. Team harmonious greens
Green promotes a sense of balance and harmony, which is just what children need after a stressful move. Layer up different shades, from tranquil, muted tones to vibrant, invigorating hues.
5. Restore order with blue
If you’re worried that your little ones are feeling a bit stressed out following a big move, painting their room blue could give them that reassuring feeling that all is well and everything is exactly as it should be.
