Choosing paint colors for kids' rooms

When your kids are younger and even tweens, they often feel their room is too babyish, but letting them have control over choosing the paint color can make parents cringe, especially if you see their room from other areas of the home.

“A lot of times the child, their preference is to have a bright, bold color – but to paint the whole room that color, sometimes when you look in, it can throw the rest of the house off,” Laurie Lundgren, interior designer and paint color consultant, said.

Her advice is to paint kids' rooms a neutral color and let them have an accent wall that is only in view from within the room.

"The answer is to give them the bright wall they want and go with the neutral on the other walls,” Lundgren said.
