Kids love color. They won’t be satisfied unless their bedroom is bright, bold and beautiful, but that doesn’t mean that you have to paint the walls bright pink, orange or blue. There are lots of more creative ways to add color to a kid’s bedroom, that will satisfy them and allow you to keep your walls a neutral shade that you love.


Here are some cool ways to add color to a kid’s bedroom:


A Bright Bookcase


One of the best ways to add color to a kid’s bedroom is with brightly colored bookcases because, not only are the bookcases themselves colorful, but the books you place on the shelf will create a rainbow of color all on their own. As a bonus, you’ll be encouraging your kids to read, too.


Removable Wallpaper


If you aren’t keen on painting the walls lime green and you don’t want to go to the hassle of wallpapering only for your kids to decide they don’t like the new look after a couple of years., using removable wallpaper is a great alternative. You won’t have to worry about ruining your walls or the kids growing out of their style, but you’ll be able to create a look they love.


Wall Decals

If you don’t want to cover the whole wall with a child-friendly design, another alternative is to use wall decals. These come in a range of styles, including many of the most popular cartoon characters like Hello Kitty and Elsa from Frozen, and they can be placed on one or more walls to add something cool the kids will love, which can be effortlessly removed when they decide they’re into something new.


Cool Duvets


Whether you choose a mandala duvet cover, a marvel superhero one, or one featuring a classic Disney character, using your child’s duvet to inject a bit of color into the bedroom is one of the simplest and most affordable tricks to create a bedroom kids will love.




The average kid has a lot of toys, and lucky for you, most of these toys come in very bright primary colors. That means, all you have to do is set up some shelving units to display some of these toys and you’ll be able to instantly inject color into the room without painting the walls.


A Funky Bed Frame

The great thing about children’s’ bed frames is that they aren’t boring. You can buy beds that look like pirate ships, princess castles, and racing cars. If you don’t want to paint the wall, investing in one of these will ensure that your kids still think their room is very cool, especially compared to mom and dad’s boring bedroom with an average bed!


The Accents


Every good room needs lots of accents to tie it together, and in a child’s bedroom, that means things like a pretty geometric print rug, a desk with colorful drawers, a cartoon character lamp and perhaps even a framed picture too.


Try out these tips and not only will your children love their bedroom, but you will too.
