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, haven’t we? But nowadays there are a rainbow of options. Options that usually do not come to our minds. Now is the time to explore them. Here are some great gray boys’ room ideas you can choose from.

Why you should consider gray for your boy’s room

Today we will talk about gray. What is that? You haven’t given it a lot of thought? Well, you will now! When we choose our kid’s room color we need it to be more than just cute or pretty. Although of course we want it to look the best! There are tons of bedroom ideas out there. However, when it comes to boys and children, it is more complicated. One thing we need to consider is that the color of a boy’s bedroom affects him directly. Indeed, the color will be processed by his mind and transferred to his thoughts. This will affect his mood and it will also 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. Gray 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!

Gray is also a great option for rooms for more than one child. It helps create tone variations in the space so that the room doesn’t look too cluttered or messy. Combine different tones of gray with white or beige, and add details in brighter complementary colors like blue, red or yellow.

As mentioned above, the best thing about gray is its versatility. It enables the room to transform and ‘grow’ as your children get older. Small changes in the decoration and lighting can make a gray bedroom look more grownup and mature, still leaving room for personality and interesting elements. Try wall art in classy colours, wooden shelves, metallic details and interesting patterns like bold tartan and stripes.
