Since an early age children themselves can tell what they want to see in their room. It is very easy to choose the colors that will fit the interior of the nursery. If the child is active then a room should be painted in bold and bright colors but for calm and modest children neutral colors will suit perfectly.

  • Wall painting is especially relevant for the thematic interior of the children’s room, for example, in a sea or fairy-tale style. The painting can be either complex and detailed or simple and uncomplicated. It is better to place large compositions only on one wall and small prints can be distributed in several places of the room at once, for example above the bed and in the playing area.
  • If you want the child’s room to be bright but you are afraid to overdo it, paint only one wall with bright paint and keep the other walls neutral. This way you will be able to zone the space visually separating a sleeping or playing area from a studying area.
