The low/no VOC market has expended significantly over the last ten years that will meet LEED standards. There are many options that you can test at your project. Please see links below.,

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The Shabby Nest added this to Creative Play Spaces for Kids
Ah! The magic of chalkboard paint. Paint out a wall, then add oodles of storage for art supplies and toys. Voila! Kid's paradise.
Lily Gahagan added this to Post-Christmas Conundrum: Toy Storage
Big built-ins hide all manner of games—and even a kid or too.
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Help! I'm a Minimalist, My Child is a Maximalist
Play space. If space permits, dedicate a room for your children's playthings. When children have a place to call their own, they tend to migrate there.
Vanessa Brunner added this to Get Organized: 5 Ways to Keep Toys Tidy
Get as much off the floor as possible. Kids want room to play! An open space will mean a safer place to play and fewer things to get dirty or ruined.Magnetic whiteboards and chalkboards give kids an easy-to-clean art space that's fun and eco-friendly. There's no paper waste here! Making it magnetic turns it into an instant bulletin board for displaying other art.
Seek functional pieces that don’t look too childlike. A playroom doesn't have to look like a chaotic kindergarten classroom. Keep in mind that most basements are one big open room, meaning a playroom is going to be adjacent to a TV room or even a bar area. “If the playroom is sharing space with the adult section of the basement, try to select furnishings that almost look like an extension of the adult area,” says Wolfe. “Kid-size craft tables and chairs have come a long way from bubble gum style to cool, mini-me pieces.”
Add a special zone to keep kids occupied. If you have little ones at home, it's worth it to make an extra effort to make the office kid-friendly. Sure, in an ideal world, we would just close the door and everyone would not bother us — but as any parent knows, that's just not how it works.Consider adding these kid-friendly features to your office:Chalkboard or chalkboard wallPlayhouse or play cupboard that children can climb intoChild-height activity table and chairsComfy rugBaskets or bins of toys or art suppliesPlay kitchen
Vanessa Brunner added this to To Do: Your Holiday Organizing Checklist
5. Tidy up kids' spaces. Even though it might not stay clean for long, it's worthwhile to make the effort and get your children's play space under control before the holidays. Using organization techniques that'll encourage kids to put things away may help the space stay tidy — at least until the end of the day. 5 ways to keep your children's toys tidy
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to 10 Ways to Entertain Kids on Rainy Days
6. Become invisible. Hide-and-seek never gets old. My youngest son was particularly good at this game. One time he stood behind a curtain perfectly still for 30 minutes. We couldn't find him anywhere until I heard him giggling.
1. Provide space for spreading out. It's tempting to try to control messes by limiting play space to certain corners of the house. But giving children the freedom and flexibility to spread out and play with abandon can be liberating for them. Use cubbies, storage bins and other organizers to keep the mess under wraps when playtime is done. But every now and then, embrace the chaos!
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to How to Childproof Your Home: A Grandmother’s Wisdom
I always love when rooms include someplace that tells the kids they are welcome. Cubbies like these, incorporated into a built-in and filled with a comfy blanket and favorite toys, create such a welcoming place. Adding a blackboard is another way to give children a place to express themselves, and is a vast improvement over dealing with permanent markers on walls.
