When making the major decisions that are involved with building or purchasing a new home for you and your family, one thing that will be of utmost importance to your children is what is going on in their very own space, the kids’ bedroom. There are many current trends that have been gaining popularity among new homeowners that can help you to be sure that your child’s bedroom is a “smash hit.”

 “Using with as a backdrop in a child’s room is an easy way to make the room flow with the rest of the house without standing out too much…”

As far as color patterns go, depending on your child’s tastes, one tried and true scheme sees bright and vibrant colors as all the rage. Bringing bright and bold colors and patterns to your son or daughters’ room immediately can relay a fun “vibe” without being too over the top. On the other side of the color spectrum, when done tastefully, different shades of gray have seen an upward swing as well in children’s bedrooms. When paired with soft yellows, pinks, and orange, whether it be on the walls or in your selection of furniture, gray can keep a modern feel, while keeping the room’s overall look a bit softer. Much like the use of gray, the pairing of white with a brighter color of your child’s choosing has also been a high demand choice of late. Renowned designer Andrika King, noted that, “Using with as a backdrop in a child’s room is an easy way to make the room flow with the rest of the house without standing out too much…” This type color pattern is especially effective when the accessories in the room provide the brighter colors to compliment the white.

The walls of your child’s room can say a lot about them as well, and it seems that an old standby, wallpaper, has been in some way involved with many of the more popular ideas. Staying away from frilly or overpowering patterns, many have come to see that a tasteful and interesting pattern can create a great feel for a room and actually provide a great backdrop, instead of art hanging on the walls. Others have opted for a wallpapering of just one wall in the room, giving the room a more open feel and making the covered wall somewhat of a focal point in the bedroom.
