First of all, we should choose the type of product, according to two important criteria:
1. Healthy atmosphere
It is important to choose products with low VOC emissions, i.e. with as little volatile organic compounds (VOCs) as possible. These volatile compounds are released after the paint dries and can cause long-term health damage, such as asthma, allergies, nausea, headaches, or even more serious effects on the central nervous system. We also prefer odorless products, ensuring an overall healthier atmosphere in the space where children play, read, and sleep. Water-based paints typically have less odor, lower VOC emissions, dry faster, and are less toxic.
The walls of the children's room are the surfaces that get stained the most and most often - from fingerprints and food residues to markers and paints. Fortunately, there are products available with special technology that can withstand multiple washes, scrubbing, and polishing, allowing us to restore the appearance of the surface without repainting.
Today, we can easily identify products that are appropriate for the children's room, by looking for the label on the packaging that clearly states that they are suitable for children's furniture and toys.
We recommend two distinguished products for painting the walls of the children's room and for painting children's furniture and/or toys, respectively:
Master Easy Clean
Master Easy Clean is a high-quality and durable paint for interior walls, with great performance and coverage, suitable for children's furniture and toys as well. It is a product with top certifications and is also the first certified Vegan paint in Greece.

Wood Aqua is a high-quality, waterborne polyurethane acrylic decorative varnish, suitable for wooden surfaces such as cabinets, doors, windows, as well as children's wooden furniture and toys.
