You may have envisioned your perfect nursery, but you’re faced with a vast array of nursery paint options and products to use from both a visual and a practical aspect, making releasing this vision a lot to consider.

All these advantageous characteristics are found in Earthborns line of eco-friendly paints, with a variety of choices to suit every home.

Water-based and easy to apply by whichever application tool you desire to use, it dries to a washable, low-sheen finish, and is designed for a number of interior surfaces, not just walls! In short, it’s a paint you can rely on for the road ahead, and surely one to consider again in the not so distant future, when that nursery graduates to a children’s playroom.

Another high-quality product to consider, and one for, perhaps, the more indulgent among you, is the Earthborn Claypaint. It dries to a luxurious, ultra matt finish and is intended for a wide range of interior projects. Aside from its stunning visual quality, this paint also boasts exceptional breathability, meaning it can even be beneficial to sufferers of asthma and allergies. What’s more, it’s even known to minimise condensation and deter mildew. What this all amounts to is a nursery paint that understands the significance of your child’s health and its safety, especially at this very young age, and responds to that need with an assured confidence you can be proud of.

Of course, no nursery room is complete without your baby’s furniture to go with it. So whether you’re looking to jazz up an old piece of furniture, or simply to reinvent something recently purchased, we’re delighted to say that Earthborn have you covered once more, with their Eco-Chic range.

While each step you take in creating your perfect nursery room constitutes a worthy investment, it stands to reason that your personal budget, your taste as a parent, as well as whomever you may turn to for advice (friends, family, fellow soon to be parents, or even the internet), are deciding factors in that process. One thing to always consider is the difference a simple lick of paint can achieve in transforming a room or sprucing up tired furniture.

What’s especially commendable about these paints (besides their vivid variety, high-quality makeup and child-safe, eco-friendly ingredients) is how well suited they are for young families. They have the newborn present and the young child in the future in mind, and they fit the bill from both a visual and a practical aspect.
