We have already talked on other occasions about how to choose the color of the walls of children's bedrooms. Today we talk about the types of paint we can use to decorate our children's rooms. Painting is a decorating technique that can also be easy, quite inexpensive. We can renew the appearance of a room by applying a coat of paint in a totally different color to the one we had, combining different tones or applying effects techniques and spending very little money on it.
Tips for choosing the paint for the children's room
As initial advice we will say you always choose a quality paint, because in addition to the application will be easier because it covers more in each hand, its durability will also be greater. We can classify the paintings in: water or latex paint and oil paint or enamels.
Most paints have an oil or water base. The safest paintings for children's rooms are those based on water, such as plastic. They are very easy to clean due to their uniform and smooth finish that prevents dirt from penetrating to the deeper layers. They are also non-toxic, that is, they do not contain chemical compounds that can harm the child. Avoid oil-based paints because of their high concentration of harmful chemicals.
If the paint contains latex it can be harmful for those children who are allergic to it. There is in the market, and more and more brands that include them, hypoallergenic paints. They are designed for situations in which it is necessary to immediately inhabit the room as they do not emit odor and avoid respiratory problems in very sensitive people. They are also widely used in baby bedrooms.
Within the finishes we can find:
Brilliant finish: are easier to clean with soap and water but highlights the imperfections of the wall. It can also produce unwanted glare and reflections. Not advisable in children's rooms.
Finished santinado: also easy to clean and very delicate.
Matte finish: conceals imperfections very well although it is more susceptible to stains and avoids annoying reflections.
A type of special paint that our children will enjoy a lot is the slate painting. Leave a space on the wall of your room to develop your creativity and imagination. You just have to take into account that the surface on which you use it is smooth. You can use a DM board and hang it on the wall at your height. You can also choose the color you prefer.
