Think for a moment about using a cheerful color in the interior, and the first room in the house, which at that moment will come to mind, will probably be a children's room. This is an ideal place for bold experiments - to revitalize the space, you can try out new colors, unusual decor items or fancy patterns.
However, one often has to look for a compromise between what you consider practical, affordable and simply acceptable, and what your child wants. Of course, the widely promoted bright multi-colored themes with cartoon characters look amazing, but for most of us this does not seem to be the best option. Today we will demonstrate how you can keep a neutral background in the children's room and at the same time add an abundance of color to the space.
When we talk about the color of a children's room, most often it comes to painting the walls. Very often, the walls in such rooms are painted in bright colors - from sweet pink to cheerful red or charming yellow. But as your child grows up, such a design begins to seem not quite appropriate, and you are forced to make cosmetic repairs in the room. The 30 amazing ideas for decorating children's rooms that are being proposed today for your consideration will allow you to achieve glee of color without painting the walls!
Bright decor and lighting
Keep the walls white or gray in the kids room? For many, this may seem like a dull prospect. However, there are many creative ways to help compensate for the lack of color. Moreover, they all have one indisputable advantage: to change the style of the interior or the theme of interior design, you can, for example, just change the decor and lighting.
Given how quickly the tastes and interests of children change, this approach can indeed be considered the best. And, I must admit, more and more homeowners are beginning to understand and put into practice the functional and economic advantages of this approach.

You can start the design of a children's bedroom from the bed (or even from its headboard), which will attract all the attention. Then add bedside tables, wall decorations and accessories that complement the created image. In any case, you will need to choose a color palette for the interior and stick to it. Purple and pink usually predominate in girls' bedrooms, while stylish blue shades dominate in the boy’s room. Against a neutral background, bright and shiny additions look much more attractive.

Awesome shelves and cabinets
Like decor, shelves and cabinets play a large role in shaping the overall appeal of a child’s room. A smart choice would be to purchase a modern modular unit that serves both as storage space and a place to do homework. Such stylish furniture sets usually have a wide range of colors.
In addition to the traditional pink and blue, which many parents often abuse, you can use the yellow color - this is an ideal option that looks great in almost any interior and suits both girls and boys. Orange is useful when designing a room for an elementary school student.
Combine this playful shade with black and it will look even brighter. Whether to hang modern colorful shelves or repaint an old bedside table - there are many options, and among them you can find the right one for any style!

Relive the color of the walls in the children's room!
Despite the dazzling décor, do you still not like the white walls? Instead of looking for a solution in a paint can, think about creating a beautiful accent wall using wallpaper. They will give not only bright colors for the children's room, but also a funny pattern, and additional texture. When choosing a wallpaper, focus on the age of your child and the color scheme of the room. In addition, the size of the room and the surface area to be covered with wallpaper should be taken into account. Too bright and colorful in small bedrooms can seem overwhelming.

Geographical maps are a long-standing favorite in children's bedrooms. And this is no coincidence, because they give the little owner of the room not only pleasure, but also new knowledge. Graffiti on the wall is already for the teenager’s room, and a large board placed on the wall will give your child a chance to become a master of graffiti himself! Posters, all kinds of signs and wall luminous signs can add personality to the bedroom.

The colorful ceiling can dramatically change the attractiveness of the room, and it is amazing why so often we do not use this opportunity and do not pay enough attention to the ceiling. In the children's bedroom, the ceiling provides an excellent opportunity for creativity: you can not just paint it, but also place various images on it - from stars and planets to your favorite superheroes.
Add some unusual pendant and built-in lights, and you will get an impressive, bewitching space that seems full of color, despite the fact that the walls remained “dressed” in soft, soft shades.

Floor mats and windows
If the stunt with the ceiling seems too risky or difficult for you, pay attention to the floor - floor tiles, carpet or a regular rug will help to give the room color. Window blinds or curtains that complement the color of bedding and decorative pillows - this is another cool approach that will never let you down. No matter which way you decide to add color to your child’s room, make sure that the interior as a whole has a consistent and concise look and an interesting color scheme.
