Your child’s bedroom is one of the most important rooms in your house. Their bedroom is where they sleep, study, play, relax and where they feel safe. A room with such importance deserves special attention. Adding green décor to your children’s bedroom can be a way to add a comfortable and natural feel to your child’s safe haven.
An open airy space
Green walls are a great way to add a touch of nature to a child’s bedroom. For small bedrooms try painting your walls sage. This light green color will open the space and create a calming effect. Add in some light-colored furniture to truly create an open and relaxing atmosphere.
A deep, bold and cozy space
If you have a larger space that is begging for a bold statement, paint the walls a deep green. Emerald or seaweed green are great options that will pull your child into a deep and cozy environment. Pair these dark green with a pop of navy blue in your bedspread and accessories with dark wooden colors for your furniture.
Green décor for children’s bedrooms can also be enhanced by adding plants. When you are creating a green space for our children, why not add in green sustainable options? Using sustainable options will not only make your children feel great about their contribution to a clean earth, but it also has potential health benefits. When choosing your paint, avoid using products containing volatile organic compounds (VOC). These paints have been shown to increase respiratory and allergy issues.
When selecting furniture, try to select items made of wood as an eco-friendly addition to your new green space.
Don’t want to repaint?
Re-painting is not always an option when adding green décor for children’s bedrooms but that doesn’t mean you can’t create a beautiful green space for your children. Leave your walls white and add pops of bright green through the use of blankets, rugs and lamps. Lime, apple green, and citron are bright colors that will pair well with your lighter walls.
Focal points, go all out
The main focal point of any bedroom is the bed so why not go all out and make a statement. The Discovery World Furniture Charcoal Full Captain Beds could be used in any of the color schemes listed above.
Add a zesty green bedspread to a room with white walls to add color, vibrance and a natural feel. Add a deep navy bedspread and pillows to match for a room with emerald walls creating a bold, cozy space. Or, simply add a beautiful cream bedspread to contrast your sage walls for an open, airy space.
Plants not only add a beautiful element they also help your mental and physical health. Indoor plants have been shown to:
- Reduce stress and anxiety
- Increase productivity
- Help channel your creativity
- Improve air quality
- Reduce symptoms of depression
For a toddler or young child’s room, try adding a hanging plant to avoid injury from falling plants. Rooms for infants and teenagers can easily utilize potted plants in the corner of the room, be placed on a dresser or in the window without the worry of hurting your children.
Great color schemes that will help you achieve green décor for children’s bedrooms:
- Sage and off-white: Open up the space creating a light and airy feel.
- Emerald green and navy: Create a bold, intimate space that gives your child a comfortable cozy haven.
- Green and brown: Don’t shy away from using patterns in your walls and add some wooden furniture. This will make them feel like they are lost in the rainforest!
- Sage green and pale pink. Give it an airy, creative feel with sage walls and pops of pale pink.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with your greens and have fun!
