How To Make Painting Your Kids Room Fun 

February 10, 2022

Painting can be such a fun project that can instantaneously transform a space from dull and boring to one that has a theme, purpose, and looks new and refreshed. Spaces like a child’s room can be painted to show the shift from toddler to young child or young child to emerging teen. 

No matter what stage your child is at, there are a few key ideas that will help you make the most of painting a bedroom and that will make the process go smoothly and quite possibly fun! 

Include Your Child 

Unless you have a newborn, there is nothing quite as exciting to a young child or maturing child than refreshing their personal space to more align with who they are becoming as a person whether they are a toddler or a teen. 

Part of the process of choosing a design, including paint colors, should include your child. If your child is old enough to express an opinion, they should be a part of the redesign and paint color choice process. Depending upon the age, the level of involvement will vary. 

For younger children, give them a choice of two or maybe three color chips to choose from. For older children, take them with you to a paint store or use Benjamin Moore’s online color choice options to lower down the choices to a reasonable number.

Keep Personality in Mind 

Your child’s bedroom should be a reflection of their personality or interests. For instance, if your child adores outer space, create a mural on one wall that incorporates space ships, galaxies or the universe. If your child is big into literature, choose their favorite book and make it come to life in the decorations, wall color, and furnishings. 

The same goes for hobbies. If your child is a dancer, include a ballet bar with mirror or a baseball themed room for a ball player. The choices are endless.

Think Outside the Box With Walls & Furnishings 

Most children’s rooms include a bed, dresser, and maybe a night stand. If you want to get a little funky, consider some add ons that play up your child’s interests like a small tent in the corner, a swing hanging from the ceiling, a rock climbing wall, or a chalkboard wall where a child can draw to their heart’s content. 

By thinking outside the box, you will be able to make their room a special place to sleep, hangout, and entertain friends. 

Consider Sheen/Finish 

Before you make a final decision on the color palette for your child’s room, consider the level of sheen for the walls. If your little picasso tends to draw on the walls or creates smudges with messy fingers, you may want to consider a higher level sheen such as satin or semi gloss to make clean ups a little bit easier.
