Contrary to what you see on social media, the only opinion that matters when it comes to your baby’s room is your own. It’s not like your newborn will come into the world demanding certain colored walls and décor. Rather, the nursery should be a place where both you – and the baby – are comfortable spending time in. It’s up to you to equip your nursery with all the baby essentials, but when it’s time to add a splash of color, Reno Truckee Carson Paint Mart has you covered.
While it’s entirely up to you on what color the nursery will be, there are some that stick out as having positive effects on mood, sleep patterns, and even diet. You’ve seen how color can dramatically alter the mood in other rooms throughout your home. For baby nurseries, psychologists recommend choosing a color that is equal parts tranquil, nurturing, and restful. Check out these colors for inspiration when “paint baby room” is on your to-do list.
Thought Provoking Grays
Gray is easy to match with tons of other colors. It’s not super flashy, so you won’t necessarily have to repaint it as your child grows up. Light gray is also fairly easy to paint over with minimal coats. According to experts, gray provokes deep thought and concentration.
Light to medium shades of blue are said to help relax you and your baby’s body and mind. Yes, it’s more traditionally associated with having a boy, but regardless of the gender, blue can be mixed and matched with various décor pieces to obtain your desired look and feel.
Pink is traditionally a go-to for girl nurseries. Put a spin on it by going with more gentle tones. It’ll provide soft comfort with an airy, gentle feel.
Painting walls an earthy shade of green can invoke the essence of nature in your baby’s room. Not only can it benefit health and well-being, it’s also been shown to improve learning comrehension.
Neutral tones can bring a sense of grounding to your baby room. Simple colors give their brains and eyes a rest so they are readily ushered into sleep. Even though these types of colors are muted, they introduce an opportunity to incorporate bright-colored accents.
