Painting For All Ages: Kid-Friendly Murals & Playful Room Designs

When it comes to painting and decorating your home, each and every room merits special consideration. Perhaps you envision certain spaces as calm and light, others as bold and vivacious, and still others as neutral canvases ready to be brought to life with standout furniture and accessories.

If your residence is home to children of any age (part-time home or home-away-from-home count, too), chances are you’ll want to take particular care in designing inviting spaces for them. At Pinnacle Painting, our clients often ask us for tips and ideas on how to make the most of bedrooms, playrooms, and other spaces geared toward youngsters.

If catering to kids is a core goal of your upcoming design and painting project, here are the top 4 insights we’d like to share with you:

Engage the Senses

The senses of hearing, smell, and taste may be largely off the table when it comes to interior design, but engaging children’s senses of sight and touch are integral elements of kid-friendly spaces. Whimsical colour combinations and the use of varied textures can brighten up even the smallest room (or portion of a room) and help children feel comfortable and stimulated throughout the day. Consider complementing paint choices with playful rugs, curtains, bedding, and other textiles.

Stimulate the Imagination

Large-scale wall murals or rooms designed with a cohesive theme can be a delightful way to actively invite children into a realm that transcends reality. Anything is possible in a room where whales swim on the ceiling or spaceships zoom across the walls! At Pinnacle Painting, we have the expertise to help you select and professionally install a wall mural in your child’s bedroom/playroom or collaborate with you to design and bring a completely original concept to life.

Space Has Its Place

Bright, bold, and playful are one part of the equation, but don’t underestimate the importance of also incorporating areas that promote peace and relaxation into your kid’s room design. Consider the benefits of intentional nooks with softer textures and more muted colours for quieter activities. Contrast busy prints and textures with simpler design elements, especially surrounding beds or areas intended for quiet play. While the entire room should remain cohesive, keep in mind that it’s alright (in fact, encouraged) for different areas to flexibly lend themselves to specific moods or types of activities.

Honour Your Child’s Personality

You know your child best—what delights them, what makes them tick, and what they actually need in a customized space. Whether you’re looking to create an inspired art space where their imagination can run wild, a rough-and-tumble playroom where they can get out their energy in their own home, or a peaceful sanctuary where they can experience a respite from sensory overload, our experienced team is ready to collaborate with you every step of the way.
