Creative Kids Room or Off-Beat Office

If your kids’ bedroom or playroom could use a classy old-school touch, or your office could use a practical and creative redecorating, magnetic paint, chalkboard paint, and whiteboard paints are beginning to catch on for their visual appeal and imaginative possibilities.

Kids love to create, and they love to display their work. A chalkboard wall in their play-space is a great way to give them endless opportunity to create masterpieces with colored chalk, and to hang their artwork with magnets. This will allow you to exhibit their work without cluttering the fridge or putting thumb-tack holes in the walls. As kids grow, this wall can be a place for their magnetic letter set as they learn the alphabet, or magnetic poetry games when they are older.

To give children this artistic canvas without taking up a whole wall, consider painting a faux-chalkboard on the wall. On a light-colored wall, paint a large rectangle at a height where kids can reach it. Paint a tidy, brightly colored border around it to make it stand out. The effect will be suggestive of the school-house and contain your children’s “inspirations” to one attractive location.

Magnetic paint can also be a catchy and useful addition to an office. A faux chalkboard there could give a coffee-house menu feel to your announcements and reminders. Or consider a conference room in which an entire wall is covered with whiteboard paint, where creative planning and problem solving can run wild, and then be neatly washed away.

Painting just a door with magnetic paint is another way to add an original flair to a room. It does not have to look like a whiteboard or chalkboard—magnetic paint can be painted over with the color of your choice to match your décor. In this way you can add hundreds of useful possibilities to a wall or door without making it visually apparent.

People often ask whether magnetic paint can be harmful in any way, interfering with pacemakers or electronic devices. The answer is simple: absolutely not! “Magnetic” paint is just normal paint that has microscopic iron particles in it. When painted onto a wall, the metallic coating will attract magnetic objects, just like a fridge door does, but the wall itself does not produce any force or interference.

To discover more ideas for using magnetic, chalkboard, and whiteboard paints, speak to a painting contractor that has experience with these products. MB JESSEE is an experienced, friendly, premium San Francisco Bay Area painting company, and we have used these products in many homes.
