Why use designer paints?

All designer paints are made from the highest quality raw ingredients combined with rich pigments to achieve beautiful depth of colour. Cheaper paints on the market contain plastics (vinyl) and a higher water content which do not give the same finish and complex colour.

What is the safest paint for a baby’s crib?

When painting a baby’s cot, there are a number of factors you need to take into consideration. The most important factor is that the paint you use is safe for babies. Many paints aren’t safe for babies and can cause health problems.

Non-toxic paint is essential and is the safest paint for a baby’s crib. But what does non-toxic paint mean?

Non-toxic paint has no silicates, lead, or volatile organic compounds (VOCs). It also has no odour or fragrance, which can be irritating to babies with sensitive skin. An additional bonus of non-toxic paint is that it is one of the most environmentally friendly options available.

For peace of mind, we recommend choosing a paint that has been certified as child-safe under the BS EN71-3: 2013 regulation, also known as the Toy Paint Regulations.

Finishes are also important – you should choose paint that will be durable and not flake off because that could cause harm to your baby. We recommend semi-gloss paint because it is low maintenance and durable. Eggshell and gloss are good finishes to choose as well because of their durability.

As one of the first paint brands to go with entirely water-based formulas, Farrow & Ball paint can be trusted as non-toxic and safe for children.

Many Little Greene paints have been certified as non-toxic, including its Absolute Matt Emulsion, Intelligent Matt Emulsion, and Intelligent Eggshell paints. These paints are certified under the Toy Paint Regulations, meaning they don’t contain metals that are toxic to children.

All of Tikkurila’s water-based paints are low-odour, which makes them safe for painting children’s bedrooms. To make it easy for parents to choose baby-safe paints, the company has toy-safe paints, kid’s bedroom paint, and zero-VOC products.
