Boys' rooms can be a variety of colors ranging from the traditional blue to neutrals such as beige or gray to brighter colors such as orange, yellow or red. One way to make a room unique is by combining bright and neutral colors, according to HGTV.

If one chooses the blue option for a boy's room, both bolder and muted shades of blue work well with other colors such as green or tan. White also can be an ideal color for a boy's room, either as the main color or as an accent color. White also helps brighten smaller rooms and creates the appearance of a larger space.
