Expecting a baby is an exciting time, especially for first-time parents. Nine months may seem like a lot of time to prepare but when it comes to getting ready for your baby’s arrival, time flies much faster than many new parents anticipate. Fortunately, preparing your new baby’s nursery doesn’t have to be as overwhelming as it first appears!
Nursery Lighting Helps Paint Color Design
Once you have selected which room will become the new nursery, begin by looking at the room at different times of the day to compare the amount of natural light. Stick to the painting basics; consider that dark colors will make a room feel smaller while lighter colors tend to make a room feel large and bright. There are no set rules to designing a nursery but there are a lot of decisions that you will need to make when it comes to selecting the color scheme. You can go with the traditional pink and blue or you can mix and match color palettes and patterns to create something unique.
Neutral Nursery Paint Colors
If you decide to mix a neutral paint color such as cream with a second color such as blue or pink, the experts at New York Painting Services recommend separating the top section of the wall by painting with your neutral color. For balance you may want to consider adding an accent wall using a patterned wall paper. For non-gender specific designs, the artisans at New York Painting Services recommend working with neutral colors for your walls and adding color with your accessories such as drapery and bedding. If you like yellow or mint green, be sure to choose a shade that is not overly bright for the room. Both yellow and mint work perfectly for a baby of either sex.
How to Choose Paint Colors for Nursery
The design experts at New York Painting Services also offer this advice; it is far easier to select colors based around your accessories such as flooring, bedding and drapery rather than the other way round. Once you have made your selections you can begin choosing the colors you want to use on the walls and/or accent wall.
Make a Small Bedroom Look Bigger
If you are working with a small room you can add an accent color by incorporating either a mural or patterned wallpaper to add some depth to the room and make the room appear larger. If you are working with a theme, for example farm or zoo animals, you can incorporate the design by selecting wall hangings, bedding and stuffed toys to match.
Interior Paint Color Scheme for Baby’s Room
Selecting a color scheme for your baby’s nursery can be an overwhelming task. The knowledgeable design professionals at New York Painting Services are experienced when it comes to color psychology and they can advise you on color palettes that are designed to improve the overall wellbeing of your newborn. Bold colors for example; including shades of red, orange and bright yellow can have an energizing effect and should only be used in accessories. Cool color palettes promote a feeling of relaxation and when paired with neutrals will make the room feel booth tranquil and inviting.
