5 Best Paint Colors That Are Perfect For Children’s Playrooms

Color Tips

Playrooms come in all shapes and sizes, and their uses for the family can vary widely. Whether creating a space to keep toys and stuffed animals tucked away or a haven to nurture budding artists in your home, choosing the right color can affect the room’s tone and enable creative minds at work.

Create a fun, whimsical space perfect for supporting your child’s imagination with these ideal paint colors.

Best Neutral: Sherwin Williams Alabaster

If you’re looking for a paint color that will work with your child’s playroom as they grow, consider using a neutral that can easily be incorporated into various color schemes.

We love Sherwin Williams Alabaster because it’s a lovely white that works with minimalism and can also be used in an open space from another room, like a sunroom or alcove.

Best Yellow: Sherwin Williams Sunny Side Up

Sherwin Williams Sunny Side Up is the perfect choice if you’re looking for a bright, happy color for your playroom. This gender-neutral yellow has a strong gold undertone and will add depth to your space without overpowering it. It’s bright enough to stand out but neutral enough that it can play well with a variety of shades. You can pair it with navy or green for a bold, contrasting palette. If you want a more subtle look, try paring with light white hues.

Best Pink: Sherwin Williams Cotton Candy

We love pink. It’s a standard go-to for playrooms, especially girls’ rooms, but rather than pick an overly pigmented shade, consider a softer color like Sherwin Williams Cotton Candy. The perfect pink for your playroom!
This blush shade is the perfect addition to any space. In smaller spaces, it will appear more pink and bold; in sizable, light-filled rooms, you’ll see the neutral, silvery-white undertones a bit more.

Best Bold: Sherwin-Williams Intense Teal

Are you looking for a bold teal that will liven up your playroom? Look no further than Sherwin-Williams’ Intense Teal. This striking color is perfect for creating a fun mermaid or nautical-themed space. It also works beautifully as an accent wall!

Best Green: Sherwin Williams Greenbelt

We love Sherwin Williams Greenbelt because it’s bright, bold, and unexpected. The playful green is perfect for all genders and ages and is a great color if you want your playroom to stand out. Depending on your color palette, it can look whimsical and eccentric or grown-up and trendy.

I can’t say enough good things about this business. They are professional, on time, and reasonably priced. They respect your property and your time. They show up when they say they will and work continuously until the job is done. I would give them 10 stars if it was possible. Great job.

PRO stands for professional! That is what this company is. From start to finish Seab, Marissa, Austin, Dobby, Monica and Heather were awesome, professional and caring. They all exceeded our expectations and we appreciated their personal approach to details, including tips for our diy projects. We are selling our home and needed several full... rooms and a ceiling painted. They arrived on time, we’re respectful of our space and and it was done on time and at a fair price. We highly recommend Pro 1 painters to everyone.read more

I had several references and estimates and what intrigued me was Mr Miller when he came over, was his professional and kindness while conducting his estimate. He handed me a brochure, told me about their warranty and that females would be doing the work! The next day Amanda came over and her enthusiasm and kindness was really great!So I chose... Pro 1 painters! Whomever is reading this, trust me when I say the job they did was mind blowing! Monica and Jennifer were also amazing from prepping, covering furniture, the cut work and attention to detail was beyond amazing. They exceeded my expectations ten-fold! Then Amanda came over after the work was completed and conducted a walkthrough to ensure I was satisfied! Who does this??I will definitely use Pro 1 painters again! Please call them, you won’t be disappointed!!read more

review written but for some reason it used my Childs name instead of mine nonetheless, we used pro 1 painters for our interior painting of foyer, staircase and living area and they did a fabulous job! Price was reasonable, the crew was quick and did a great job. The crew was trustworthy and completed the job with us at work and I had no issues... whatsoever with their trustworthiness or efficiency. Still amazed they worked as quickly as they did! We plan to use them again in the future and Id recommend them to anyone.read more

Used this business for interior painting of our foyer & living room with 20 foot plus vaulted ceilings. Price was very reasonable. Crew was professional, courteous and very efficient. They were quiet as a whisper and worked very quickly. End product was great and we plan to use them again for another project!

Pro 1 Painting Company is all about family and friends. My husband works there and been employed for a little over a year. I had major surgery on Wednesday and today I received a beautiful bouquet of flowers from the owners. They really lifted my spirit. It's really heart warming to know someone cares whom you've never met but heard so much... about. Just wanted to share this and say thanks for your prayers, texts, and calls.read more

Hurricane Sally came through and blew over a huge pine which destroyed our roof and caved in our ceiling — Pro 1 Painters fixed it up, looks great. They also removed popcorn texture in one bedroom, and we're going to have them come back to remove it from a couple other bedroom ceilings too. It's literally better than new.
