Before getting started, choose elements that your child, or any potential future children, will love and be able to use. Start by thinking about what colors to use and what type of decorations you will want. Research non-toxic paint options and choose a brand that focuses on sustainability. By choosing a healthier paint option, you are creating a safer environment by minimizing the air pollution in your home. If you plan on having a fun wallpaper, look for non-toxic options for that as well. Options for non-toxic wallpaper are limited, but you want to look for peel and stick products that are PVC free, OEKO-TEX certified, and created with water based inks and recyclable.
The room interior is an element that does not change, so choosing healthy supplies is important. By having paint or wallpaper free of toxins, you are allowing your child to breathe better, aiding in their development, and promoting a healthier and longer life. Make sure when updating or renovating your home you keep the space blocked off to avoid any chemicals leaking into your home. Also if you are planning to get pregnant, make sure to make any updates beforehand.
