With Ava turning one in November, we decided it was time for us to makeover her room.
When we first moved to our home, Ava’s room was a guest room for my parents and friends. We chose a latte shade for the walls and kept other elements in the room neutral in grey and earth tones.
While preparing for Ava’s arrival, we replaced the bed with a baby cot, set up a corner for changing diapers and left the walls in latte.

For her room makeover, we wanted to have more girly elements in her room so we decided to give the room a fresh coat of paint in new hues.
Planning for the makeover with Dulux
We worked with Dulux’s professional painters for painting services to paint the room. They came to our place for a pre-painting consultation which took about half an hour. This site visit allows them to gauge the lead time necessary for the paint job, the paint required based on the space and advising us on the type of paint & choices of colours based on the type of paint shortlisted.
We could not decide on the colours during their site visit and were introduced to the Dulux Visualizer. Simply download the application for free to your smartphone or tablet, and picture your room in the new colours before you paint it. The application gives you an instant impression of how your room would look like.
Download the FREE Dulux Visualizer app on your smartphone or tablet to see how your room would look like after being painted with your chosen Dulux paint colour.
Alternatively, seek a free colour consultation with Dulux Colour Consultants. Simply snap a picture of your room, fill up a form on their website and receive photos of your room in the chosen colours. We made use of the visualizer and decided on the colours Dulux Florida Pink & Dulux Celestial Sun.
Here’s how to seek the advice from the Dulux Colour Consultants!
Painting with Dulux Wash and Wear
We were impressed at the speed the painters worked when they arrived on the day of painting. They assisted in moving of the furniture, and took extreme care in protecting the remaining furniture and items in the room with plastic sheets. The floor was also covered with carpet to avoid any stains.

With just one coat of paint, we could see how vibrant and rich the colours were. As we planned on the painting to be done with the kids at home, we were worried about the strong smells. We realised that with the Dulux Wash and Wear Paint, there’s hardly any paint odour.

Making the room and walls “KidProof”
The beautiful finished product of Ava’s room.
Being parents, we (maybe just me, not Daddy Darren) have grown to have a higher tolerance towards stained tables, floors and walls. We educate the kids by telling them that they should draw and paint on paper and not on the furniture, walls, and floor. Accidents however do happen especially at times, when they get overly excited and doodle on the wall. When this happens, we find that it is tough to remove the stains and would need to cover the wall with a new coat of paint which is a hassle.
Bright walls to freshen up the room.
With Dulux Wash and Wear with KidProof Technology™ which we chose for Ava’s room, we can have the best of both worlds – bold cheery shades of our choice as canvasses for the kids’ creativity and a stain-free home. I have to admit that one of the biggest draw for me was how easy cleaning would be for the Dulux Wash and Wear Paints. How does this work? We were amazed as Dulux’s Colour Consultant explained to us about a unique protective layer that repels and resists tough stains such as tomato sauce, fruit juices, ice cream and chalk.
Efficient and Professional Painting Services!
The walls will be safe from her tiny, adventurous hands!
In under 5 hours, painting was completed. I was pleasantly surprised to see the painters cleaning up the room and helping to move back the furniture in the original place.
Well, a freshly painted room calls for some new furniture to brighten things up – so off we went to get new furniture to complement the new hues in the room.
I must say that I’m extremely happy with how the room turned out about the new coat of paint and furniture.
