Wall painting ideas at home
Your home is your castle (especially if it IS a castle), and creating an environment that is relaxing, productive, creative and fun is no small task. We’ve put together some whiteboard paint ideas for your home. There’s a lot of nuance that goes into each and every room to maximize their function in a non-obtrusive and effective way. For instance, you aren’t going to be decorating, setting up, or using writable wall paint on your kitchen in the same way as you would your bedroom – they are different rooms with very different purposes.
Just like the rooms in your house, we have different whiteboard paints with different functions which all shine in different ways depending on where you use them. Let’s look at some feature wall ideas and how the ESCREO range can transform your spaces.
Room by room inspiration
If you’re at home, which room are you in right now? The kitchen? Living room? Wherever you are, take a look around and imagine if you had the ability to write, draw or pin up at your leisure without having to worry about leaving permanent marks. This is what whiteboard paint is all about. Let’s take a closer look at the different writable paint options we have, and which rooms they are best suited for. Of course, there are no hard and fast rules, so if you think a certain kind of paint is suited for a different room, go for it!
Kitchen – Magnetic whiteboard paint
The kitchen is the heart of any home. From grabbing snacks or drinks to preparing family meals and parties, it takes a lot of organization to keep things running. Our magnetic whiteboard paint is perfect for the kitchen because as well as being able to write down menus and shopping lists, you can pin up recipes, pictures, and even light objects such as oven gloves. Plus, if your fridge door has run out of space for travel magnets and decorations, well, now the entire wall is there!
Home office – white whiteboard paint
Working from home is now part of the norm and by now you know what helps you stay focused and productive, and what doesn’t. In many cases, having too many objects, papers, and clutter around you can be distracting, which is why we’ve chosen our classic white whiteboard paint for the job. Creating a calm and minimalist vibe, you can write up ideas, schedules, reminders, and diagrams to your heart’s content without having to shuffle through papers and files. You can leave tasks for the next day right up there in front of you for easy recall and once you’re done, all you need to do is wipe it away. Job done.
Living room – Clean air paint
Living rooms are where you entertain, relax, play and enjoy yourself which is why you’ll likely spend a lot of time there. Our air purifying paint is the perfect solution for this space as it will actively reduce the number of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), bacteria, and other harmful substances. It’s perfect for families who have members with allergies, asthma, or sensitivity to airborne particles in general. And, of course, our air purifying paint is just as writeable as our other options, meaning that the fun and games can keep on rolling.
Children’s Bedrooms – Clear whiteboard paint
If you have kids, their bedroom is as much a play center as a place to sleep and rest. Our clear whiteboard paint is the clear choice as it won’t cover up the colors you’ve already painted on the walls and will let your kids explore their creativity in a safe and mess-free way. With a writable wall, they can experiment with shapes and colors to their heart’s content, helping to build their cognitive function and channel their need for a bit of chaos.
It’s not just walls…
ESCREO writable paint can go on a lot more than just walls! For example:
- Glass – Such as cabinet doors, glass tables, and windows.
- Wallpaper – As long as it is not textured.
- Metal – Car doors, cooker hoods, fridge doors.
- Marble – Bathroom walls and kitchen work surfaces.
- Wood – Desks, tables, window frames, beams, and other furniture.
Why stop at surfaces? Why not write and draw on objects too, such as:
- Desks – For note-taking during meetings or reminders of tasks.
- Kitchen and bedroom cabinets – With fun reminders and labels of what’s stored inside.
- Sides of beds – With wishes for sweet dreams and drawings.
- Mugs – With fun notes, and if you’re protective over your mug, your name!
- Dinner tables – For games when gathered with family or friends
- Cupboards and wardrobes – For fun pictures, laundry reminders, or labelling of contents
