How to Decorate When You’re Expecting

Paint Colors & Wall PaperOne of many people’s favorite activities when they are expecting is decorating their new additions room. Whether it’s picking out paint colors or wall coverings, people adore the process of making a space that is just for their new one. The idea of nesting is well known and taking this time to slather a room in interior paint colors helps transform the room and make it so that this life transformation seems as real as it is. Something that more and more people are becoming aware of and factoring into their decorating projects for baby is the idea of eco-friendly paint color. Everyone knows how important environmentally safe products are and the market has made adjustments to offer all kinds of ecologically responsible products, including wall paper and interior paint. Beyond the environmental benefits, bringing up baby in an eco-friendly room is a healthy and wise decision.

Babies’ small and developing systems are not as easily able to handle the toxins in many house paint colors and so on top of being better for the environment as a whole, green interior paint colors are better for baby’s health. Besides considering what paint color to surround your child with, new moms and dads should be checking interior paint for volatile organic compounds, and making sure any and all paint color combinations are free of phosphates and completely biodegradable. Everyone knows that being in a freshly painted room, when the wall paint colors are not environmentally friendly, gives people headaches and makes them feel less than ideal. Now imagine these same paint color chemicals being exposed to children and you will be able to understand why it is so important to not expose them. Although eco-friendly house paint colors can be more expensive, they can in fact be more fiscally responsible because the pigments tend to be much richer and so fewer coats of interior paint color are necessary to truly saturate the walls with vibrant color.

Another solution that keeps the new addition to your family safe and away from chemicals while being environmentally savvy is wall paper. Wall paper supplies are just as easy to pick up as paint accessories and often working with wall coverings instead of paint color combinations can result in a more vividly decorated room that was completed in a shorter amount of time. Not only do wall coverings save your little one from breathing in harmful chemicals but wall paper comes in green alternatives that are made from recycled paper. Besides wall paper, there are other eco-friendly wall coverings such as rice paper that are able to provide all the benefits of wall paper and wall paint colors in a unique way. No matter your taste and the design you envision for your baby’s room, there will be paint supplies or wall paper tools that will help you achieve the perfect and most healthy options for your new baby and the world they will be living in.

Interior PaintingFor anyone new to do it yourself projects, specifically ones involving paint color, you may be a little overwhelmed and not even know what you need to get started. You may be able to envision what the room or exterior will look like after the house paint color has been applied but when it comes to making it happen, you’re feeling a bit clueless.

You will need to make sure you have paint supplies for fixing holes, including patching paste and a putty knife, as well as sand paper to make sure it blends in with the rest of the wall. With exterior paint projects, it’s important to have a multipurpose paint tool to help you drive in or remove nails and scrape any loose paint away, leaving a sturdy surface for the new paint color to hold onto. Now that you’re ready to paint, one of the must have paint supplies are drop clothes, which will protect your furniture and floors. Painter’s tape is great at protecting moldings, windows, and outlets from being slathered with the wall paint color of your choice.

Now that you know all the basics about paint supplies, you will be sure to have a successful first do it yourself paint experience.
