Bedroom Colors – Best Colors for Children

Discover the right colors for children’s bedrooms so you can boost creativity, calm, soothe, aid learning and more.

Young children tend to veer, when left to choose for themselves, towards the red, orange and yellow end of the color spectrum.  These bedroom colors create a clear, bright environment and are also popular for play areas.

Feng Shui bedroom colors to avoid are:

RED

Red stimulates physical activity and growth.  It’s why so many young children prefer the
color red – it’s typical of their energetic, youthful exuberance.  So, if it’s restorative
sleep you are after, painting your bedroom color in red will not cut the grade.  You’ll simply feel too stimulated, agitated or anxious.

Plus, you could be in overdrive on the sensual excitement front, so be careful.  Limit red to accent colors only – red candles, lamps, cushions and other accessories are fine but avoid large splashes of red.
