Blinding inspiration – colours for the nursery
It’s no secret that stimulating your baby’s senses can aid brain development, but with an abundance of advice available, it can be difficult to differentiate between what can help your child and what is simply myth.
Whilst it may be tempting to use soft, pastel colours in your child’s nursery, in actual fact incorporating black and white stripes or light and dark contrasting colours can aid visual stimulation and help your baby’s brain development. Here, we will discuss how you can transform your baby’s nursery into a bright, beneficial space through your choice of blinds.
Research has shown that the visual impact on a baby’s eye when looking at contrasting colours means powerful signals are sent to their brain which allows for better brain growth and faster visual development.
You may decide to take inspiration from the summer season by using contrasting colours to create a bright, happy space and aid child development. An example from our roller blind range here at Kingston Blinds Direct is our Lola Calipso design.
It features contrasting white, yellow, green and cherry stripes which will instantly brighten up your child’s nursery, as well as stimulating visual senses.
Bold geometric prints can also add a pop of colour in any nursery for a modern, lively look. A combination of light and dark colours in the print will engage babies and aid their development. Not only that, the geometric pattern will help your child grasp different shapes and sizes as they get older.
The geometric Apples Blush design from our roller blinds range combines light and dark colours with a fun pattern for your child to enjoy. Studies have shown that when colours are presented to babies in pairs, they tend to spend the most amount of time looking at red and orange, making our Apples Blush extremely beneficial to your child’s visual senses.
When it comes to choosing a new set of blinds for your baby’s nursery, it’s important to carefully consider practicality as well as style. This is particularly important during the summer when the sunlight can shine brightly into the room, impacting your child’s sleep and their sensitive eyes.
As such, the adjustability of blinds gives you full control over the amount of light filtering into the room, and blackout blinds will block out all light entirely when required. Many of the blinds we offer are available with a blackout lining so you can choose a style you like with the additional light blocking benefits of a blackout blind.
