Pre-Paint Job Consultation – by Nippon Paint

My family would like to thank Nippon Paint for this opportunity to collaborate with them on revamping our living room. Our last paint job was done 5 years ago. However due to the hacking/rebuilding, we have many cracks in the walls. We also have many blu-tac stains from pasting up posters for our kids to read. Our walls really needed a make-over!

At our Pre-painting Consultation, Nippon paint sent their professional painter down to have a discussion with us. Both hubby and me are very bad artistically and we really appreciated the professionalism of the painter in advising us on the colours we can have that is suitable for our home.

Nippon Paint had a wide selection of colours and styles to choose from. They showed us books of catalogs and sample pictures. The painter was very patient with us as we discussed and consulted him not only on the colours/designs we should have but also the kind of paint they will be using.

Due to my pregnancy and having 2 really young kids in the house, we opted for something that is odorless for our base paint. This was really important to me and so we decided that we will use their odorless Medifresh Paint series.

Nippon Paint Odour-less Medifresh is enhanced with antimicrobial protection to provide continuous protection against mold, mildew and bacteria that cause stains and odors on the paint film. It gives walls and other surfaces a long lasting elegant finish. It is ideal choice for eco-sensitive commercial and residential areas such as elderly, children or nurseries’s rooms. It has the following features:

  • Virtually no paint odour (My favourite point!)
  • Ultra low VOC
  • Durable & washable film
  • Ammonia-free
  • Non-toxic and lead, mercury and heavy metals free (My favourite point too!)
  • Fungus & mould resistant
  • Anti-bacterial
  • Spatter resistance
  • Excellent flow
  • Excellent coverage


For our feature wall, Nippon will be doing something with special effects using their Momento Special Effects Paint. Nippon has a few painters who are trained in this design and each masterpiece will differ from the next. The wall(or room) will be textured and some series will even sparkle under light!  Nippon Momento is also formulated with low VOC, and contains no lead, mercury, chrome or heavy metals, creating a healthier environment. Most importantly to me as well, it has almost no paint smell at all!

To seal up our cracks in the walls, the painter recommended the Nippon Paint Expresskote Sealer. The Expresskote Sealer is formulated with a special styrene acrylic polymer for excellent alkali and efflorescence resistance properties and has the following features:

  • Good adhesion
  • Good alkaline & efflorescence resistance
  • Fast drying time
  • Easy to apply
  • Environmentally friendly paint certified under the Singapore Green Building Product Certification Scheme
  • Anti-fungal and algae resistant


They will be doing up our ceiling as well with Nippon Paint’s Odourless Anti-Mould Ceiling White. It has the following features:

  • Anti-mould properties with a broad spectrum protection against most species of mould
  • Environmentally friendly green emulsion product
  • Non-toxic, does not contain lead, mercury and heavy metals
  • Easy application and touch -up
  • Minimum roller splatter
  • Excellent coverage and hiding power for minor surface imperfections


Finally we came to a conclusion on the colour and design with a lot of professional help and advice from our painter consultant and I can’t wait to see the end product! 🙂
