It’s no surprise that children’s imaginations are stimulated most when surrounded by vibrant, invigorating colours. But practicality should play a part when painting your child’s room, too. For a decorating scheme that won’t outgrow your child, choose peaceful neutrals for the walls, like a shade of soothing grey-green or a warm stone.

A neutral base gives your child endless opportunities to play around with colour. Try a feature wall painted in a zesty hue or set the scene for fun with wallpaper, stencils or a dedicated artwork wall. Get them involved in the decoration process. After all, paint is not just an easy way to transform your child’s bedroom into a fantastical space - it’s also the perfect way to introduce them to the power of colour.
