Using Interior Paint to Create a Successful Study Space for Your Student

When we talk about interior painting, it’s almost always in the context of updating or refreshing style. From kitchen cabinets to living rooms, paint is a powerful way to transform your home while adding long-term value.

Beyond style by itself, it’s also important to consider the deeper power of color, and how it can influence our emotions, stress levels, and even appetite. A carefully-planned project has a far-reaching impact.

Schools and businesses have also tapped into this potential for power, carefully planning color schemes and interior designs around the purpose of the spaces they’re painting. They understand that painting can be strategically harnessed to positively impact their environment in specific ways for specific outcomes.

As we step into a new school year, this all led us to an important question: how can you use paint color to help the young student in your home?

Best Paint Colors for Focus, Creativity, and More

Before you start considering color options, it’s important to first think about both your child’s strengths and those areas where they may need a little help. For example, is motivation lacking? Do they grow discouraged quickly and overwhelmed? How about focus?

With this in mind, here’s a snapshot of how color can impact studying:

  • Red – Reds have been shown to assist with detail-oriented tasks, but too much can be overstimulating. How about using red as an accent wall or within decorations rather than as a dominant color?
  • Blue – Blue is relaxing, and promotes idea generation and focus.
  • Yellow – Soft yellow may be a relaxing option too, but it also sparks creativity. There’s a bit more energy here than blue offers.
  • Green – Earthy, natural greens are very relaxing to surround yourself with. This could be a perfect option for a student who gets easily frustrated or overwhelmed.

Remember to Get Your Child Involved in Their Study Space Design!

Kids love being involved in unique activities, especially when it comes to customizing their own spaces. As a side note, check out these examples on Houzz for a little design inspiration!

Here are a few tips (find even more here!):

  • Involve them in the decision-making process
  • Keep the space uncluttered except for a favorite item or two (depending on their age, this could be a stuffed animal, decoration, photo, etc.)
  • Include storage for all their necessities so that they don’t need to keep leaving to get what they need
  • Plenty of light
  • Quiet
  • Make sure they are aware that it’s all theirs - a sense of ownership goes a long away

If you need help with your painting project, be sure to contact a professional painter near you. They can offer insight, fun ideas, and a beautiful finish that you and your little student can be proud of.

“Just had MB Jessee paint the interior of our house and they did a wonderful job. They tackled some crazy wallpaper as well as painted some very high ceilings and walls. The whole process was quick and they did a great job! We are very pleased. I was also very impressed by the crew. They were very personable, kind and actually took pride in the work they were doing. In one of our conversations with the lead Ricardo, he actually told me he was very proud of how the rooms had turned out. I agree sir! It turned out great and it's not often you hear someone thinking of your home like they would theirs, and putting that level of work and quality into it. That made a huge difference in how I viewed this company. Ricardo, you were fantastic and thank you for the great job, we will be using you again.”

“I had my wooden kitchen cabinets painted white. Anabal and Danielle were doing the job. I have nothing but praise for them. They came on time, cleaned up every day, were respective, friendly and helpful. If the rest of Jessee's crew are as great as Anabal and Danielle, this company will go far.”

Given the scope of the job and that our kitchen is roughly half of our upstairs living area they did a fantastic job of minimizing the mess. Workmanship was top notch, would definitely recommend.”
