Parents get really excited for their newborn babies. Before you even select the color of the nursery room, you need to see the space first and see how you can use natural light to make the room look much brighter. You would want the nursery room to look spacious and comfortable for your baby. Using dark colors makes the room look much smaller than it appears to be.
What is the best color for your baby’s nursery room? When you are designing a nursery, there are different factors that you need to consider when it comes to choosing the color and designing the space. If your baby is a boy you can use the traditional blue color or if it is a baby girl, you can use pink.
If you are tired of using the usual colors, you can always play with them and be more creative. For instance, you can also use a neutral color (i.e. white) then you can add another second color like blue. You may also want to add an accent wall as well as the use of a nicely designed wall paper.

Adding an Accent Wall
One of the things that you usually notice in smaller rooms is that they have accent walls. This is because adding accent color can make a room appear much bigger and adds more depth. Just choose the accent walls that will perfectly complement the theme. For instance, if you want a Superman theme for your baby boy, you may want to add a mural of other heroes. Add the colors of these super heroes into the pillows, blankets, sheets, etc.
You would not want to keep on redoing a nursery room. So, it is a practical choice to use a color that you know will last. For example, you may want to go for mint green or navy blue. These colors are perfect for a room that is non-gender specific. Another main advantage is that you can still use this color for years to come.
Go for soothing colors.
Colors directly and indirectly affect moods of people and the same thing goes for kids. As such, it is strongly recommended that you use soothing colors for your baby. Choosing the right color will surely improve their sleeping and can make their mood much better. You should not use too bright of a red, yellow or orange as these colors are often associated with too much energy. You can use these colors but only to specific areas. You may want to have pastel colors where you will put the crib or where your baby will sleep.
