Color psychology for your kids’ room

When picking colors for a child’s bedroom, especially for the walls, personal taste is normally the deciding factor. However, each color causes different effects in one’s brains, especially in kids, who are developing under the input provided by the environments that surround them. 

Before checking out the pros and cons of each color, keep in mind that neutral and lighter tones are elegant because they don’t draw attention to themselves, instead, they leave the focus for furniture and decoration while complementing them. That doesn’t mean that bright or dark tones cannot be used. When matched correctly, they provide beautiful contrast and sophistication.


Besides the close association with nature, green inspires health and well-being. It is perfect for jungle-themed rooms. 

Green has a soothing effect on the body and aids concentration. Studies show that it boosts the process of learning to read. 


This typical boy’s color promotes creativity, while its calming effect lowers the blood pressure and reduces aggressiveness. 

It is a great color for humid and hot places because it creates a fresher atmosphere.


Too much pink, bright or dark pink should be avoided. These will cause agitation and anxiety

Meanwhile, rose tones integrate a perfect bedroom for a little princess. They are body and mind soothing, inspire femininity and empathy. Don’t the stripes of our Pink and White Market Tent Bed give off these characteristics?


This warm color is stimulating and lively. It inspires social interaction and communication skills. 

To avoid overstimulation and bring a bit more coziness into the room, balance it out by associating it with cold tones, like blue. 

Its variations, like terracotta, integrate more and more kids’ room and simulate a natural environment. 


This powerful and impactful color is hardly present on the walls of nurseries and children’s bedrooms. 

Its use is recommended for creating accent and contrast especially in rooms with a lot of natural light, which avoids a darker atmosphere.

White opens up spaces by making them look larger and goes well with any other color.
