    Health hazard-free paint for the nursery

    Published on 25 January 2019, Friday, 3:28 AM

    Having a baby is both an exciting and extremely busy time and if you have an impending arrival there is no doubt that your household will be preoccupied with getting things ready.

    There is a good chance that a large portion of your time and effort is devoted to preparing the nursery for your new bundle and painting it is likely to be at the forefront of your mind.

    However, if your baby's arrival isn't far off and you still have to embark on some DIY painting, you should keep in mind the type of paint you use and the range of baby safe paints which are available on the market.

    It's especially important to limit your exposure to chemicals during pregnancy, so it is important that you pick the right type of paint that won't give off harmful fumes.

    Experts recommend that expectant mothers leave the painting job to their partner, family members, or a professional, however that doesn't mean they can't still be involved.

    There are a wide range of baby-friendly paints, and available in all your usual colours, so mums-to-be can still play a part in the room's decor.

    Choosing non-toxic paint which is low in fumes is a safe option for your baby's nursery, or you might want to consider doing away with the paint all together in favour of wall paper as an alternative.

    To remove existing wall paper, a wall paper steamer available from your local Kennards Hire will quickly and easily dissolve the adhesive to make hanging your new paper simple and painless.

    There is a huge range of wall paper available and it comes in some great styles and colours perfect for your baby's new room!
