Tips to Keep In Mind When Choosing the Paint Color In Your Baby’s Nursery
There are some things that you should keep in mind when it comes to choosing the paint colors for your baby’s room.
All the walls in the room don’t have to be the same color. You can pick one color as an accent wall and keep things a little different. A cute idea is to make the accent wall the one with the crib just to make that wall the center of attention in the room.
Also, right now designs are really big when it comes to accent walls as well. Things like stripes, polka dots, and zig zag patterns can all be achieved using a laser level and some painting tape. There are all kinds of great video tutorials on how to paint different patterns on the walls available online.
Another way to pick the paint colors for your girl’s nursery is to pick out the actual crib bedding you want first and then pull the accent colors from the bedding. This can be a good way to decide on paint colors without having to wade through hundreds of colors and instead narrows it down for you.
Lastly, realize that your baby will most likely only have the paint colors in their room for a few years. Most parents may keep the same color scheme through the toddler years but once your child gets older it’s not unusual to want to change things up. This means don’t take it too serious as you can always change the look whenever you want.
