Painting A Child's Room
Kids particularly are more enthusiastic about getting their rooms painted because this gives them a chance to enjoy playing and spending time in there own private area.
Planning The Room Painting
Best Paints for Children’s Bedroom
- Choose the finish carefully, depending on the wear and tear on the walls and keeping in mind the age of your children. Matt finishes are usually better to hide imperfections of the wall. However, if your kids are messy and you expect different dirt and color marks on the wall, the wise thing to do is to go for satin or eggshell finish. These are more stain-resistant and easy to wash away when the disaster strikes.
- Kids are impatient and you might have very little time on hand before they demand to go into their newly painted room. So be careful in selecting the paint that quickly dries off.
- Go with Sherwin Williams, they have a huge range of colors to select from and get an idea of how many gallons you will need to get the whole job done. Also, go with paints that are not toxic for children or the environment like the ones with low VOC or no VOC.
Starting The Painting Process
- As you get started, assess whether you will be able to do the job yourself as it requires multiple processes. You will need to start with sanding the walls and filling the voids, along with cleaning and taping off before you start painting.
- Instead of painting the whole room in one color, and regretting it later, opt for one accent wall with bold paint color like yellow, red, blue or green. This will also be a great option if you are on a rigid budget and have a large room at hand.
- You can highlight certain areas of the room or furniture by painting around it.
- Make a statement and see the excitement of your kids by using cool patterns.
