When thinking of painting or furnishing their child's room, most of the parents won't think beyond the traditional pink or blue motif and might just settle for them. However, studies have been expanded on the psychology of colors, and it is now believed that colors can influence our bodies and minds, and children, more than others, can be extra sensitive to their impact. It is important to understand how colors have an impact on their moods to be able to pick just the right colors for their rooms.
Specialists recommend to put blue wallpapers onto the walls facing your child's bed. It is also a recommended color for bedspreads as it decreases feelings of anxiety and aggression and inspires in your child a soothing sense of calmness.
Light green is a preferred color for newborn's rooms because this calming color promotes relaxation and healing from pains. That can explain why most of the hospitals are painted in green. However, we advise you to avoid adding it to your older children's rooms who need to study as it might relax them a bit more than needed.
Yellow and orange are two underused colors. Not only are they cheerful, they also communicate happiness, help foster your child's creativity, and boost their energy. Do consider them when choosing a color for your child's desk. Orange also plays a great role in promoting children's self-confidence and grants them a sense of independence.
Red might not be a prudent choice for your children's bedroom as it encourages hyperactivity and aggressive behavior. You can, however, use hints of it for the kitchen or in the dining room as it attracts attention and awakens their appetite.
Purple and pink are two colors universally loved by girls. They evoke quietness and help create a calming atmosphere. White, on the other hand, lends the place a sense of freshness and openness, and it also inspires in children calmness and peace. Visiting us, you'll notice that Little Academy is painted in white with hints of blue and decorated with other colors all around the place.
Appreciate the influence of colors and never underestimate the importance of choosing the right ones for your child's room. You can still grant your children the luxury of choice by offering them two or three options that suit their age and needs so they can love their own place.
