While we do focus a lot on things for babies and younger children here, that doesn’t mean big kids don’t also need special care when we re-do their bedrooms!
Here are some things to consider when updating your child’s bedroom:
Use No-VOC or natural non-toxic paints. No-VOC (or Zero-VOC) means “no volatile organic compounds” which really just means none of the toxic stuff that contributes to indoor air pollution and that you don’t want your child (or you!) breathing in for years to come. Natural and No-VOC paints are more typically more expensive than regular latex interior paint but for a bedroom, one gallon may be enough and it’s money well spent. No-VOC paints are available at most home improvement stores such as Home Depot and Lowes and you can find a list of natural non-toxic paint brands here.
