There are thousands of shades of blue paint to choose from which makes it more than challenging to narrow down choices. We spent some time finding the best shades of blue wall paint for your baby’s nursery or kid’s room so you don’t have to. Our criteria was based on richness of color, uniqueness of color, and the likelihood of the paint matching other decorative elements like bedding and window treatments. We then tried to find examples where these paints were used so you had a better sense for them.
And, don’t think blue paint is just for boy nurseries. Bring in a bit more girl with white, pink, or lavender and you’ll be all set.
We’ve broken our finds into three categories – light blue, medium blue, and dark or navy blue and linked to them where we could find them. Pretty much all of these are low or no VOC (i.e. no fumes, no odor, and more environmentally safe) but it’s best to confirm before purchase.
Good luck with your painting and let us know how you like our recommendations.
