Colours to make your child's room magical

by Helen Shaw, Marketing Director, Benjamin Moore UK


From bedrooms, to playrooms to bathrooms, Benjamin Moore offers endless options when it comes to designing your child's favourite space. Childrens' rooms are the ideal place in your home to be more playful with colour and to let your, and their, imaginations run wild. From dreamy pastels to energetic brights, let us inspire you to create the room of your child's dreams.

Walls - Clearspring Green HC-128, Natura Flat. Drawers - Billowy Down 2064-70, Natura Semi-Gloss. Woodwork - Cotton Balls 2145-70, Natura Semi-Gloss.
Walls - Rosy Blush 2086-30, Natura Flat. Woodwork - Gray Owl 2137-60, Natura Semi-Gloss.

Invigorate your child's favourite space with colours that make a statement.

Ask children what colour they want for their room, and big, bright hues top the list. Knowing that this is the space where they sleep, study and play�balance is the key.
A colour like Yellow Highlighter 2021-40 is fabulous and bright, and can be softened by Cotton Balls 2145-70 on woodwork and complemented by Downpour Blue 2063-20 as an accent. Blend these saturated tones with neutrals, like greys and beiges, for bedding, pillows and other room d�cor.

Paint your child's room with a colour they'll never grow tired of.

If you're the practical type, you may be interested in colour choices that will transition seamlessly from infant to toddler to big kid.
To align a child's room alongside their growth spurts, consider reserving bold colours for room d�cor or furniture, allowing a practical neutral or pale hue on walls to stay tried and true, year after year.

Walls - Bird's Egg 2051-60, Natura Flat. Ceiling - Iceberg 2122-50, Natura Flat. Woodwork - Ice Mist OC-67, Natura Semi-Gloss.

Paint your child's room in a way that allows them to express their creativity.

Designate an area of the room for expressing creativity with chalk. Benjamin Moore Chalkboard Paint empowers you to create a dynamic and unique accent wall that your little one will love.
Our Chalkboard Paint is available in Benjamin Moore's 3,500+ paint colours�so no matter what colour the room, you've got a huge array of coordinating colour options.

Use more than one colour to create a complimentary theme the both of you will love.

There's chemistry between colours on opposite sides of the colour wheel, known as 'complementary colours' in colour and design parlance. Complementary colour schemes that include primary or bold colours are said to create excitement or high energy (think sports team jerseys).
Explore how these types of happy colour unions; purple & yellow, blue & orange, can infuse any size room with a sense of whimsy, especially if you opt for deep, primary colours. Complementary colour schemes can be a bit too bold for some, so using a primary with a lighter or darker complement offers a more subtle option.
