How Do You Decorate a Small Boys Bedroom?
When planning your little boy's room get on your knees and look around the room. This allows you to see his bedroom from his angle.
Put the things that are important to him at your eye level especially what he needs to reach. A bed with a canopy or a roof which brings the height down to make him feel safe.
Another trick is painting his ceiling a color. Sometimes a color on the ceiling will make the room feel cozier and smaller.
What Color Should I Paint My Sons Room?
You can paint a little boys room any color but here are a few tips on color.
Bright color are more stimulating whcih is good until it is nap time. I recommend using a calmer color for the whole room and accent with brighter colors on accessories and bedding.
Darker colors make a room feel smaller but a dark room might make a child feel frightened. If you love dark colors paint all the walls a lighter color and then add an accent wall in a darker color.
Natural colors are great for little boys rooms. Agreeable gray and repose gray are two nice colors for any boys room. These colors just about match anything which. makes decorating much easier.
