5 Types of Paint for your Baby's Room

Decorating your nursery? Here are five kinds of paint that you should use!


When it comes to building or renovating our home, we should always be careful about the materials that we use. This is especially true for the rooms of our kids. More than creating a stylish and functional space for our little ones, we must also keep the area safe and secure. 

Thankfully, there are products that allow us to get the look we want without putting the health and well-being of our loved ones at risk. For the discerning parent, there are even types of paint that can kill viruses and absorb formaldehyde!

If you are planning on a big change, here are five products from Nippon Paint that we recommend for your nursery (and for the rest of your house!).

VirusGuard Anti-Viral Paint

VirusGuard Anti-Viral Paint has Silver Ion technology which can kill H1N1, HFMD, E-coli and other viruses. It also has antibacterial properties to reduce the number of "uninvited guests" in your child's room. 

You will always be happy to note that aside from being low in odor and VOC (volatile organic compounds, the harmful chemicals in most paint products), VirusGuard is also stain-resistant.

Hydro-Gloss and Hydro-Matt

These two types of water-based wood and metal paint is also low in odor and VOC. Since they are both water-based, they have fast-drying properties and are fungi-resistant, too.

Hydro-Gloss has a glossy finish while Hydro-Matt has a soft matte finish.
