When it comes to choosing your little boy’s room color it’s comprehensible that one gets a little bit indecisive, there are so many choices out there and in reality there is not just one correct way we can go.
We always think about the usual blue or green color if he is a boy because we have been kind of trained to think that way have we not? But now a days there are a rainbow of options, options that usually do not come to our minds. Now is the time to explore those options!
Today we will talk about gray. What is that? You haven’t given it a lot of thought? Well we will now! When we choose our boy’s room color we need it to be more than just cute or pretty, although of course we want it to look the best! One thing we need to consider is that the color of his room affects him directly, the color will be processed by his mind and transferred to his thoughts. This will affect his mood and it also it will stimulate him, giving him more energy.
That is why the color gray is a really good alternative. When we talk about color psychology the color gray is a conservative and stable color, it reflects and transmits intelligence, reliability and calmness. It is the color of compromise and tranquility; and we will use it to create a sense of composure and relief from an outside world that is chaotic, we want our child to enter the comfort of his home and room and feel safe and secure. Now you see why this color is a must? You might have a few doubts because it is a little sober and you may consider it a bit “mature” for a child, but that is definitely a myth. You just have to paint the room in a preferably light gray and add some whites and it will look fantastic! Plus it will give the stability and warming sense of belonging to your youngster!
