I often share ideas with you on how to decorate kids rooms with wall stickers, wallpaper, rugs and so much more. While these things are all great to help you create the look you want, there is also a lot that you can do with just a simple tin of paint. Nothing more, nothing less. It’s quick, easy and budget friendly but yet the possibilities of getting creative with paint are endless. Here are five ways to have fun with paint in a kids room:
This is such a simple idea but so effective to create a cosy little corner. Rather than just paint straight lines, I love that they have painted a house shape which really makes it feel like a separate space within the room. I especially like this idea to easily create a small reading nook in an older child’s room.
Two-tone walls seem to be all the rage at the moment. I’ve seen them mostly done where there is a straight line separating the top from the bottom, but this triangle effect is so much more fun. It also allows you to use shades like that peach colour which probably would be too much if you painted a whole wall in it. But the colour just at the bottom allows the furniture and shelves to stand out.
This isn’t a kids room but this idea to paint rough shapes on the wall is so great for a kids room, a nursery or a playroom. It’s a brilliant way to add pops of colour to a room without needing to restrict yourself to just one or two colours. You can use paint shapes like these to highlight shelves and other wall displays and you can even paint colourful frames around posters instead of hanging them in real frames.
Using big blocks of colour to mark out different areas in a room is another way to get creative with paint. With this look, as long as the rest of the walls are white, you can choose any two colours bright, pastel or neutral. This idea is so great for a shared room to clearly mark out spaces and each child gets to choose their favourite colour too.
This is what I call a feature wall! I’ve often seen rooms where one wall is painted in a different colour but this space takes that idea a lot further by painting not only the wall but everything on it including the radiator and also using a very bright colour. I love that there are no half measures here – this wall makes a statement and it looks striking. A great way to liven up any kids space and with this effect, I think the bolder the colour the better.
Would you try any of these? What’s your favourite look?
