Color walls with color. Neutral colors like white, cream, beige or gray will not date and will match all other colors. Red, green, blue, brown and yellow are colors that are suitable for both sexes, while pink are the obvious choice for a feminine room. Put interest in the walls with a border, stencils or vinyl stickers. Reusable stickers can put a theme into the room, such as pirates, animals or fairies. Simply remove and replace the stickers when your child grows up and develops new interests.
Make existing furniture a makeover by painting wooden pieces to complement or contrast with your wall color. Buy new bedding. If you have a lot of decoration on the walls, such as a large, intricate mural, stick to regular bedding on complementary colors. If your walls are plain, pick patterned bedding to match your theme, for example, as an anchor pattern for a nautical themed room. A money saving option is to color existing, plain white bedding. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Replace door handle, drawer knobs, switch plate cover and curtain cover to attach to your color scheme or theme. Purchase matching accessories for the room, such as a lamp, clock, and area rug and framed wall prints.
Use sponges of all shapes and sizes to add color and texture to the wall of your child’s room. Cut sponges in different geometric shapes, if you can’t find something to buy. Using different types of fungi can add another element of texture as well. Add shapes of color to the wall with mixed colors of color and the sponges. Spread the shapes onto the wall and make sure to leave plenty of room for more mold painting. Take several steps to lay the shapes on the walls, which allow you to use the same sponges for different colors of color and place a shape partly on top of another shape. Allow the painted forms to dry completely.
