Healthy children's rooms
Children spend around 90 per cent of their time indoors. Toxic substances in paints and wallpapers, and also mould or cigarette smoke, contribute to interior air contamination. Children are especially sensitive to this. Ecological interior paints from KEIM do not contain solvents, plasticisers or preservative substances and inhibit the growth of mould in a natural way – without containing hazardous substances that could be secreted into the room air.
Which paints are suitable for a child's room?
Most children have at least one favourite colour – though it may not necessarily be the most suitable for a room. Colours for children's rooms should fundamentally not be too dark or gloomy. Bright colours are better in small rooms because they optically enlarge it, while larger rooms can definitely be painted in stronger and bolder colours. Experts recommend painting a maximum of two walls with a strong and vibrant colour. If the choice between so many colours is overwhelming, there is nothing stopping you from combining several.
If your child is very active, for psychological reasons you should choose a colour that has a calming effect – greens and blues are good choices for boys, and pastel purples for girls. In the case of very quiet children on the other hand, you could choose a stronger, bolder colour that emits optimism and liveliness – such as pink or orange. They are stimulating and help concentration. However, intense colours should be used sparingly so that their effect is not the reverse.
