Slatewalls. You can draw on them and erase what you have drawn as much as you like! They are made in a variety of rooms, although, of course, they are most relevant for children. Why - let's figure it out today Who has small children, they know "first-hand" how dangerous it is sometimes to leave kids alone with paints and felt-tip pens. Not only sketchbooks can be drawn, but also walls, furniture and even pets (yes, such cases are known). Children's creativity knows no boundaries. In the wake of a child's love for home art, designers probably invented such a thing as a slate wall. If earlier they could only be found in school classes, today they are successfully winning the hearts of young parents. Plus, making a slate wall is easy. What is a slate wall? At its core, it isspecial paint on which you can draw with crayons. It fits on any surface: from refrigerators to entire walls in the room. Now this paint is made by almost all well-known paint manufacturers. It is easy to apply and is almost odorless when applied. Sometimes not paint is used, but a film with the effect of the same slate board. It can be glued to the door, for example. Our opinion: - To prevent dusty crumbs from chalk from spreading throughout the apartment, buy special soft chalk with reduced dust emission. Such a board is washed without problems and ugly stains do not remain on it. Where to do it As we have already noted, the mosta popular room for a slate surface is a nursery, where a whole wall, from floor to ceiling, is often set aside for it, and a set of colored crayons is bought for the child. This wall was made in a Moscow apartment by interior designer Stepan Bugaev. Stepan Bugaev, interior designer - Excellentthe solution for wall decoration in a children's room will be a slate wall. Not a board, as it was before, but a whole wall painted with slate paint. Such a wall will solve one of the most important problems with young children - drawing on the wallpaper. Such a wall will allow you to change the decor in the room at least every day. It is convenient to write on paint with chalk and erase. Nowadays, slate paint exists in every possible color, the paint is perfectly tinted. An excellent alternative to a slate wall will be a marker wall - this is an analogue of the familiar marker board, on which it is easy to draw and erase, only of unlimited size. The marker wall is suitable for families in which children suffer from allergies or respiratory diseases (for example, asthma), since such a coating does not collect dust at all. Marker paint can be used to cover drywall, plaster, metal, its undoubted plus is that it is transparent and can even be applied to wood. But marker and slate paint are not all wall coverings that will help your child develop. Magnetic soil can complement these coatings. The primer is applied directly under the paint. After finishing with such a primer, the wall becomes a real magnetic board! You can attach children's drawings, magnetic letters, educational pictures and even family photos to it without prejudice to the coating. Of course, the matter is not limited to the children's room. The abundance of interiors in which the slate board is used today shows that it is used in all rooms: bedroom, kitchen, hallway, office. Surely this trend has developed also because such a board not only minimizes the "losses" from children's drawings, but also acts as an excellent element of decor, and at the same time a "reminder". On the board, you can leave messages to family members, make lists of purchases, which are then easily transferred to paper, confess your love, or share your impressions. On it you can draw a pattern, thereby decorating an apartment, and when it gets boring, erase and apply a new one. How much is Blackboard paint sold in anyhardware stores that have regular paint. Its price varies from 1,000 rubles for a can of black paint (0.9 l) and from 1,300 rubles for a tinned one. The cost of marker paint starts from 2,000 rubles per liter can. Magnetic soil does not lose its properties even under paint and costs from 1,800 rubles per can.
