Not only adults need a bedroom wall color which is soothing. Infants and toddlers also need a suitable wall color to stimulate their brain growth. What wall colors are suitable for growing certain characters that are beneficial for your child? Consider the following tips.
Warm colors are generally energizing. So, use these colors as a room accent only. An excessive use of warm colors is not recommended, especially for children who are active. Here are the colors that belong to the category of warm colors.
- Orange. This color gives warmth and comfort. This color also can stimulate or inspire social interaction and communication.
- Yellow. Yellow is a bright, cheerful, and energetic color. The color is close to the feeling of happiness and can also stimulate memories. In other words, the ability to remember will increase with the application of appropriate yellow color in the appropriate volume.
- Red. Excessive use of red color is not recommended in children’s room, because the color is associated with aggression, inability to focus, and headaches. But a slight touch of red in a room can give an injection of spirit, e.g. gives the body energy and increases the physical abilities.
- Pink. Pink represents the elegance of a princess. This color evokes femininity and feelings of empathy. Yet, too much pink in a room can cause unpleasant feelings, which lead to panic and agitation.
Compared to warm colors, cool colors have a calming effect on the body and mind. These colors also give a spacious impression to a room. Dark colors tend to have a cool impression.
- Blue. Blue contrasts with the red. The calming effect can help lower blood pressure, reduce panic and aggression (the desire to attack or do violence). Do not mix blue with gray, because it will bring up the sad mood.
- Green. Green represents the natural feel and symbolizes health. This color gives a soothing effect to the body and increases concentration. Some studies have even revealed that green can improve reading ability.
- Purple. This color is often associated with nobles, luxury, wisdom and spirituality. Giving the color purple in your child’s room can lead to the desire to get closer to the Almighty.
- White. This color has a pure and innocent image. This color also gives a calm and happy feeling. However, this color also represents something that is confidential and modern, so that the volume of white in a room must be considered thoroughly.
- Gray. Although it is often associated with gloom, sadness, and loneliness, gray color can also provide inspiration for contemplating. Gray can also provide a soft and soothing effect for a kid’s room.
