From third-party and customer reviews to sleep and health statistics, we covered all the bases. The difficulty in any review like this one is that every person has a unique preference.

By adding a splash of color overhead you can create a visually interesting contrast with your walls and make the space more dynamic.

If you have low ceilings, selecting a cool shade like blue or lilac will make them appear higher so you can fool the eye into thinking the room is bigger than it really is.

In fact, we believe that keeping walls white or gray and adding in smaller bits of color gives you even more possibilities to make a kids room creative and playful. That, and it will keep you from repainting when they outgrow lime green or Barbie pink walls in three years. Trust us. When it comes to finding colorful accents, first consider what your child already has. Children's books and stuffed animals are often fun colors, so put them in a place that doubles as decor.

It makes locating and grabbing often used dishes and utensils a breeze. It creates a brand new look with things you already own. Plates, bowls, glasses, and mugs. The things you use every day should be the things that play starring roles on your shelving. Not only does this make things easier to get at daily, it also combats the biggest complaint of open shelving: dust and other icky things finding their way into your tableware. Constant use will keep them clean, as most things should end up going through the dishwasher in a weeks time. Keeping your open shelves further from the stove also will keep the grease down.

Particularly with the advent of lavish en-suite bath setups and private decks, our sleeping quarters have transformed from strictly utilitarian spaces into retreats that serve as an escape from our busy lives. There's no reason why your bedding can't serve the same purpose. One way to make sure your textiles drive home a relaxed feel is by taking a closer look at color psychology. Blue — particularly in lighter shades like sky and steel — has been shown to evoke feelings of safety and serenity. Consider adding these hues through accent pillows and accessories such as blankets and bed skirts.
