Allergy-Proof Your Child's Bedroom

The bedroom is where growing kids find rest, relaxation and rejuvenation. The decorating choices you make can have far-reaching effects.



This bedroom for Kenny Madden, who suffers from asthma, is free of materials that will collect dust or harbor mold. To liven up what could have been a sterile environment, interior designer Shelley Black commissioned an artist to create a mural using paint designed to inhibit mold. Window shades, which are preferable to heavy blinds or curtains, are capped with an easy-to-clean wooden valance.

Zippered allergen-impermeable covers from Allergy Control Products (www.allergycontrol.com) are made from a special, tightly woven microfiber that protects Kenny from even the smallest allergens but also allows for airflow.

Carpet was removed from Kenny’s room, and a Formica laminate floor, which can be washed regularly with soap and water, was installed. The desk and chair are also easy to wipe clean.
