Color In The Nursery

When you are decorating your baby’s nursery, you want it to be absolutely perfect. Before you start choosing cribs, changing tables, and other nursery accessories, you need to choose the right colors. There is much debate on what, if any, effect color has on babies. However, it is a proven fact that color affects adults in lots of ways, including influencing moods and enhancing emotions. Color In The NurserySo, even if colors have no effect on your infant right now, they will someday. Here are some tips to help you choose the perfect colors for your nursery.

  • Green is a natural, calming color that promotes a serene learning environment. This is one of the most perfect colors for a nursery because of its soothing properties. You can use green on all the walls and in various shades to create the ideal peaceful environment.
  • Orange is a warm, welcoming color. It is a color designed for comfort, making it a great choice for nurseries. Try not to overwhelm the room with orange; instead, opt for a vivid accent wall.
  • Yellow is a bright color that inspires energy. This is a color that is great when used in a subtle manner; too much bright yellow can actually stimulate a baby to the point of agitation. Use soothing, subdued shades to create a soothing, subdued room.
  • Red is a passionate, energy-rich color. Rather than using red on the walls, use it as an accent color because it is such a bold, vibrant color. Red is much better suited for playrooms where energy levels are naturally high.
  • Blue is a calm, cool, and collected color. Avoid dark, rich shades of blues, which can invoke feelings of sadness. Instead, opt for bright, warm shades of blue that will surround your baby with comfort and calmness.
  • White is the color of innocence, but avoid creating a nursery entirely in white – it is too stark and too sterile. Add splashes of color to a white nursery to create the perfect ambiance.

Painting is one of the easiest ways to add color to your space, freshen up a space that’s feeling old, and changing your perspective anywhere from “ahh” to “wow” and in between. A professional paint job can give you a clean look, or completely transform the space you are living in. Its all up to you.

Dig Deeper – What You Should Know Before Changing Colors On A Wall

If you stick with the existing color, you’ll provide your room with a fresh look. When paint sits on the walls for months and years, it begins to dull and fade, especially in areas where sunlight hits it. The darker the color, the more fading will occur. But even a basic white can show drastic improvements. Plus it will cover up all those marks you’ve been meaning to cover, yet haven’t had the time.

If you change colors, it’s a whole new adventure in how your room will look.

Change it a shade or two, and while you won’t have a drastic change, it can put your room in an entirely new perspective. A shade or two can bring out the color in your couch, or make the shades in your carpeting appear more vibrant. And it won’t be an extreme change that will keep you up at nights, worrying if you made the right choice.

Or live on the wild side and go for a bright, dramatic color change. Making drastic changes may seem difficult, but if you talk with your professional painting contractor first, he can make suggestions to help you choose a paint you can live with. He can point you to trends, show you finished projects, and make suggestions based on your current tastes and décor.

Color is one of the easiest ways to make a bold, new statement. Plus its easily changed; if you want something new or tire of a color, simply paint it again. Let us show you how color can change your home with a Paint Denver Proposal.
