If you’re having a girl, of course, you want to paint the nursery pink; but if you’re expecting a boy, then you would go for a blue room. This makes interior painting easy and simple to do; however, if you want to be a little creative and create a nursery that’s just right for your baby, then you should know of different great painting ideas.
Painting methods and Ideas for your baby’s nursery
In case you have ant patches or gaps in the wall, be sure to apply a primer and sealer to it. This should be done since a primer and sealer helps increase the life of your wall’s paint and will provide a great base for interior wall painting colors. Once you’ve applied the base coats, you may then experiment with various painting methods, such as using a stencil or just free hand your own design. After you are finished painting the walls, use a semi-gloss in order to have the best results. Your walls will be protected by the said gloss and will be easy to maintain, since it can be cleaned as well as scrubbed.
Before you begin the process of choosing specific colors and interior painting ideas, the first thing you must do is pick a theme. Choose one that’s simple and stick to light as well as soft colors. Great theme ideas for a boy’s room are space, cartoons, and cars. For a girl’s room, you can pick themes such as flowers, butterflies and stars.
Here are some other ideas that you may want to consider.
- Paint the lower half of the walls white and the upper half, color pink. Vertical stripes will look great with these colors. Make sure you use simple flower stencil and two to three bright colors, such as orange, yellow or purple before painting an arch on the wall. Place the crib under the arch and you will love the result.
- Another great interior painting idea is to paint the walls a medium- dark lemon shade and use a butterfly stencil of various sizes. Create a perspective feeling by painting the bigger butterflies with darker shades at the base and the medium shaped butterflies with light colors or shades.
- A nice interior painting idea for a boy’s room would be to paint all the walls blue and with a stencil or by hand, paint a couple of clouds in white. After, paint the ceiling a dark blue and use a fluorescent shade to paint spaceships, planets and stars on it. When the lights are off, you will see the ceiling and think of outer space indeed.
