Let’s start with the walls. We currently have a wide variety of ecological paints They do not contain toxic solvents. These paintings are made from oils and vegetable resins, beeswax, bark and tree leaves, casein, dye plants and other raw materials that come from ecological processes such as iron oxide pigments.

These paints create a vaporous layer that allows perspiration to the walls and, keeping the walls dry and breathable, prevents the formation of fungi and bacteria; what guarantees more hygienic walls and a longer duration of the painting in good condition.

In addition, due to their mineral composition, they prevent respiratory problems and allergies, so they are highly recommended for painting children’s rooms or bedrooms.

The application of these paints is the same as any other conventional interior paint, and its price somewhat higher than conventional paints.

These paintings can be found in any specialized store. Here in Spain, for example, we have Keim Paints, Livo Paints and Ecocom Paints, to name a few manufacturers.

For bedding, such as sheets, covers, bedspreads, etc., we must use plant fiber textiles. Especially organic or organic cotton, since being a natural, soft and breathable material, reduces the chances of reactions or irritations on the skin, also offering very good washing results for admitting high temperatures.

In addition, it is beneficial for the environment and for us, since it is grown without pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers, and is spun and produced without toxic chemicals.

With this cotton we reduce the possibility of allergic reactions and our skin breathes better, so the use of cotton clothes in babies is highly recommended.

We also have other textiles to dress a bedroom, such as linen, perfect for curtains or bedspreads, hemp, esparto or sisal for carpets, for example.

Another important part to decorate an ecological children’s room is the furniture.

Cardboard is a material that is manufactured from overlapping layers of paper; Having characteristics similar to those of wood, being light and easy to handle, it is becoming a great alternative for the manufacture of ecological furniture.

The cost of this furniture depends on the design, manufacture and assembly. Although we can find prefabricated cardboard furniture, in which all we have to do is finish assembling them with the instructions provided by the manufacturer.

Apart from wood and cardboard, we can find other types of ecological furniture made of vegetable fibers such as rice husk, hemp, reed or corn fiber, as well as recycled plastics.

We can also manufacture our own ecological furniture by recycling old furniture and giving them a second life or pointing to the fashion of the pallet and creating all kinds of furniture.
