Kids’ room? Get practical with picking paint colours

Mask bedroom messiness with tough paint and colour tricks.

Let’s face it; walls rarely stay spotless when curious children are around, especially in bedrooms where balls get kicked and artwork is created. The key is to choose a paint that has a durable finish and can be scrubbed and washed easily.

If untidiness and mess tend to be a problem, paint the walls a cool neutral that will help create an illusion of space, like pale blue, soft pink, lilac or mauve. You could also create a lively focal point by painting the bottom of the wall a vibrant hue (ask your little one for input) and the top half a bright-white. The bright bottom half will mask scuffs and mess while the white will help enhance the room’s natural light.
