You’re not a regular mom; you’re a cool mom if you’re on the DIY painting spree this quarantine. If you’ve decided to spruce up your kid’s space with a fresh coat of paint, then you know that picking the right hue is not child’s play. That’s why we’re here to help you choose what colors can bring life to your kid’s room.

Cheerful and Playful Painting Ideas for Your Kid’s Room

As you scroll through the Instagram photos and color palettes that we put together, we hope that you’re with your baby. (Not your significant other, we’re talking about your actual baby!) You may want to include them in the research process. Show them these color inspirations and let them help you decide which color palette will best fit their room.

If they’re too young to decide, then you can have total control over their room. Make sure you choose a shade that will complement the color scheme of the rest of your home. You can play it safe by sticking to neutrals or subdued hues.

P.S. If you want to experiment and explore other hues, observe what colors they seem to gravitate to when they draw or hues that they use when they scribble during their online art class.

Here are some of our picks for your kid’s room. Keep the boogie man out of your children’s room with these fun and lighthearted painting ideas!
