~ Heng Residence Bedroom Transformation - New Look, New Inspiration with Dulux (Choosing the Right Paint) ~

Following our previous post on how to pick the right colours and using the Dulux Visualizer to give you a realistic impression of how your room might look like, now we will take an overall view of the products that will suit and fit your family needs and lifestyle.

When it comes to choosing the right paint, Hubby and I are very conscious. Particularly so since we have children in the house. Being older doesn't necessary means they are more mindful. Accidents happen and we always have surprises with kids around. Food stains, Milo spills, crayon, paint, pen/pencil marks and more! Sounds familiar?

Then again, children being children, it makes it even more difficult for parents (like us) to be upset with them for trying to be creative. As an adult, I am also guilty as charged. I love to sketch and it has been one of my favourite childhood past time. Hence, I can somehow understand why children like to be explore on difference surfaces.

How DIFFICULT is it?

Have you ever tried wiping off those stains and markings? Seriously how difficult can it get? I did a little test on my current bedroom wall, originally painted with a premium coat of white paint. 

How easy was it? Not at all as I realised I do not have any allowance for mistakes. Although it was only very light pencil marking, I was not able to erase/wipe off the pencil outlines at all.

1) Tried rubbing with an eraser and the result is disappointing as a dark charcoal blotch appeared due to the continuous rubbing, making it worse.

2) Wiping with a damp cloth shows no improvement at all!

3) How about using a damp cloth with mild detergent? It took me a lot of effort, time and strength just to lighten the charcoal blotch which I created earlier!

 Imagine the 'damages' if this was done by our little innocent ones?

Luckily, I managed to convert the sketch and add a little element of cuteness and life to the plain, old boring switch outlet. A little idea you can attempt on your next groom your room project.
But we may not be that lucky all the time.

How can we PROTECT our walls?

Since I am the "In-charge" when it comes to maintaining the house, it is utmost important to choose a paint that allows common marks, scuffs and stains to be wiped away easily. Dulux Wash & Wear which is able to remove most household stains simply by wiping with a wet cloth and detergent definitely fits the bill perfectly.

With the new KidProof Technology formula, I have more confidence in my future cleaning tasks knowing that difficult stains like pencil markings can also be partially cleaned off with lesser effort.

Lesser Effort = Reduced Cleaning Time = More Family Time = Increased Happiness 

How does it WORKS?
Rather than absorbing into the paint, most liquids form beads on the surface. The advance technology prevents stains from deeply penetrating into the paint film allowing spills and marks to be wiped away easily.It's ability to repels tough stains more effectively.

Sounds too good to be true? Seeing is believing. Check out the demonstration video that I captured during the Inspiration session by Dulux Singapore.
