Welcoming a new baby into your life is an exciting and joyous occasion, and one of the first things expecting parents often consider is setting up a nursery. Choosing the right paint and colour for your nursery is an important decision. In this article, we'll guide you through the process of selecting safer paint and a soothing colour palette for your baby's room, all while keeping in mind the health and comfort of both your child and the entire family.

Before we delve into the specifics of paint and colour, let's explore why choosing a sensitive option is important and why Taubmans is a trusted name in creating environments that promote health and well-being.

Why Choose Sensitive Choice® : Sensitive Choice is a not-for-profit programme developed by the National Asthma Council Australia in 2006 to help individuals with asthma and allergies identify products and services that can be safer and beneficial for them. Products approved by Sensitive Choice must be durable, low in Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), and resistant to mould and mildew.

Why Choose Taubmans: A name known for its commitment to quality, the partnership between Taubmans and Sensitive Choice commenced in 2009, and it has been Sensitive Choice approved for almost 15 years. Taubmans offers a range of paints that meet the criteria set by Sensitive Choice, making them a safer and reliable choice for your nursery.


Paint Type Recommendation for Nursery:

What Type of Paint is Safer for a Nursery? Choosing the right paint type is essential for a nursery. To ensure safety and durability, nursery walls, ceiling, and trim should always be painted with water-based paints from a reputable manufacturer. Taubmans Easycoat and Taubmans Endure are excellent choices for nurseries because of their low VOC content and low odour.

Benefits of Choosing Sensitive Choice Approved Paints:

    • Safety for those with Asthma and Allergies: A room painted using Sensitive Choice approved paint offers relative benefits to people with asthma or allergies, ensuring a healthier environment for everyone.
    • Mould and Mildew Resistance: The antimicrobial properties in these paints inhibit the future growth of mould and mildew, providing a clean and hygienic space for your baby, especially crucial during their early stages of development.
    • Low VOC Content: VOCs (volatile organic compounds) in many interior paints can cause respiratory issues. Sensitive Choice recognises that low VOC paints help maintain indoor air quality during and after painting, creating a safer and more comfortable atmosphere for your family.

Is Low-VOC Paint Necessary? Low VOC paints are necessary because they help reduce indoor air pollutants that can be caused by drying paint. Taubmans Easycoat and Taubmans Endure contribute to creating a better interior space while painting and during the drying process.

When Can You Bring Your Baby into the Painted Room? It's crucial to wait until the paint is fully dried before bringing your baby into the room. For water-based products, this typically means waiting a few weeks after the final wall, ceiling, or trim has been painted, and any tools have been removed from the room.
