Using Natural and Eco Friendly Paints

Today, it is more popular than ever before to use natural and eco-friendly paints when it comes to painting rooms in your home. Of course, because these paints are natural, there are no harsh chemicals in them and they are environmentally friendly as well. Many people seem to think that it is more difficult or problematic to use these paints, but that is a common misconception.

The truth of the matter is that it is just as easy to use natural and eco-friendly paints in your home. These paints work in the same way a regular paint would, but they are composed differently. You will still get the same even coverage as you would with a regular paint. You will not have to use extra coats of paint just because it is organic. Auro‘s 321 emulsion paint is a great product that can be purchased as an all round natural interior house paint. What makes this an even better paint is that there are so many different colours, ranging from pastels to more bold shades, that you can use to paint your home. Additionally, if you are having a hard time finding a shade to tickle your fancy, you can easily purchase Auro’s Color Concentrate for self-tinting. This will allow you to create your own, custom paint colour!

It is also important for you to think about how much better these paints are for your health. You will not need to open up a bunch of windows when you are using natural paints in the same way you HAVE to with conventional paints – although we still recommend it! You also will not have to worry about the fumes from the paint causing headaches, nausea or even making you dizzy. Even after you are done painting, the fumes can still linger for around five years.

At the end of the day, using natural paint is always a better option for so many reasons. By using natural paint to make your home beautiful, you are preventing toxic waste from being manufactured and polluting our earth. You are also preventing yourself from being overcome by paint fumes. With the wide selection of natural paints that are available today, you should have no trouble with finding a color you like.
