Designing a Baby Room: How to Choose the Best Paint Color for a Nursery

Content Table

    One of the best parts of expecting a new baby is preparing the look and feel of the nursery. And when you’re planning out this sanctuary for your bundle of joy, choosing the nursery color scheme is the first big step in creating the perfect space for the newest member of your family.

    At Oahu Pro Painters, we have been helping families in Hawaii for many years in residential painting and choosing nursery paints for their new children, and we thought it would be great to share with you some of the best nursery paint colors and decoration ideas.

    Below, we’ll explore the reasons why selecting the right nursery colors are so important, and we’ll provide you with some great tips and teach you how to pick the best nursery paint colors for boys, girls, and gender neutral nursery color ideas as well!

    Why Nursery Color Is Important?

    Nursery wall colors are more than just an aesthetic preference for their parents; these colors affect your baby more than you probably realize. The shades of paint you choose will have a huge impact on your child’s mood and sense of comfort. For example, selecting colors that are either too dark or too bright may overwhelm new babies and create a sense of chaos.

    There are many subtle, classy, and comforting nursery paint color ideas for you to choose from, which will fit both your personal color preferences for your home and help you keep your baby happy and feeling safe.

    Of course, with a newborn whose eyesight is not yet fully developed, color doesn’t matter too much at the very beginning, but it will affect your child as they grow. And after all, as a parent, you’ll be spending a lot of time in your baby’s room. So it’s something that you’ll have to enjoy looking at as well!

    What Paint Is Best for a Nursery?

    Choosing a calming color for your baby’s room doesn’t mean picking from shades of white. Whether it’s a gray nursery or a purple nursery, there are shades of color you can choose that you and your baby will find soothing.

    It also doesn’t mean that you have to select traditional pinks and blues for your nursery. While there’s nothing wrong with those colors, there is a whole spectrum of colors and options to choose from beyond pink and blue when it comes to nursery paint schemes. If you’re interested in choosing some other colors from the rainbow but aren’t sure where to start, contact us and we’ll be happy to provide you with a color consultation for your baby’s nursery.
