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.

This is my second time using Pro 1 Painters. So, yes, they are good. This is the second room I've had the popcorn ceiling scraped and painted and walls painted. There is no way around it, scraping a popcorn ceiling is a messy job but they kept it contained. This time my first contact was with Marissa, the production coordinator. She was very... pleasant. helpful, and professional. Her voice sounds like a smile. Seab came out to see what needed to be done. He was very friendly and professional. He did all the measurements and listened to what I had in mind and made suggestions where necessary. He got the estimate to me promptly. Jaime and Ruben scraped the ceiling and painted. They are real pros. I can't believe how smooth they got the ceiling. It's beautiful. This is an old Fairhope house, so after the ceiling dried, even though they had done two coats, yellow came through in some places. So I called Marissa and in a matter of a few days, Jaime and Ruben came back and painted it with Kilz and repainted. Jaime and Ruben were great .... good at their job, worked hard, very pleasant, no swearing and no smoking.I thought the price was very reasonable, not cheap, but for what I got very reasonable. It's the old adage, you get what you pay for.In a few months I hope to tackle more rooms and I'll be calling Pro 1 Painters.Judith Robertsread more

Pro 1 Painters did an excellent job on doing interior and exterior painting on the Fort Morgan beach house. I had the exterior trim and interior touch up along with having the porch floors finished with a coating. Pro 1 was able to adjust their schedule to our needs since we also had a couple of exterior doors replaced and the recent storms we... had put my schedule for repairs behind in getting the doors hung. Pro 1 was able to return and finish up painting the doors once they were hung.My only complaints were a cut in the screen enclosing the back porch. Probably cut when the crew was finishing the back porch floor. Easily repaired but it was left unfixed. There also were some splatter marks on the exterior which was minor but touch up could have been done. I recently had the landscaping renewed and the crew did not take any due care to protect the landscaping.Overall, a happy customer and the complaints are easily taken care of. I do endorse Pro 1 Painters for your next painting project.read more

Ours was a particularly hard job, 1000 sf great room with 20' ceiling, lots of trim, doors, windows, etc; and lots of issues, like sheetrock cracks, backed out nail heads, etc. The Pro1 crew tackled the job like champs, keeping the mess to minimum, using the best paint products, making great sheetrock repairs, and applying the paint in crisp lines... with little to no slosh over. We are very pleased with the final job and the Pro1 personnel, especially Jamie, the job manager, and his crews. All the Pro1 staff (beginning/end) acted in a professional and courteous manor. We would be pleased recommend Pro1 to anyone.read more

The finished job on the ceilings look like they were smooth finished when built. Mess was a minimum and they cleaned up daily. I would absolutely recommend this team for your project. I will use them for... interior painting next.read more

We were able to schedule the work the same week I called. The team did a wonderful job of correcting a very rough concrete finish. They have a good color selection for the finish they applied to our sunroom and patio floors. The men performed the work in a very timely manner, and the result is beautiful. We highly recommend Pro 1 Painters for a... guaranteed beautiful floor finish that will hold up for many years and be comfortable underfoot.read more

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
