Stylish

but Child-Friendly Home

Families with young children frequently have the mindset that “less is more” in their houses, sacrificing their personal style. But just because we have kids does not mean we can’t have that magazine-worthy home. Follow these guidelines to create child-friendly homes that are both safe and effective.

Consider an Open Floor Plan

Consider having you’re an open plan dining area and family room, this will allow you to keep an eye on your children and spend more quality time together.

 

Flooring

Wood flooring is preferable to tiles for safety reasons. The objective is to make the spaces rounded, seamless, and devoid of any edges. Add some rugs or carpet to make it cozier and more comfortable. Consider rugs with darker hues and patterns, as these will conceal stains. Another useful tip is to make use of outdoor rugs and carpets because they are easy to clean.

 

Wall

Consider painting the wall with washable paint (think about those sticky hands!), or provide them with a freedom wall so that they can develop their creativity. 

It is also recommended to have your children’s artworks framed and displayed with pride in your home. With this done, the room will give a charming contemporary look.

 

Choosing Furniture

Washable materials are one of the most essential elements of child-friendly interior design. Sofas made of leather are the ideal example because they are simple to clean. Alternatively, you might invest in outdoor fabrics that are resistant to fading and long-lasting. Add some colorful and patterned throw pillows to brighten up the space; they’re also replaceable should spills occur.

 

Think about getting round coffee tables; these will protect your children from bumps and bruises when they are running around and playing. It would be a huge benefit if it also had storage underneath it.

It is also recommended that you get stackable furniture, particularly if you have a smaller home with limited room. This will free up room for playing without compromising the seating.

Wood dining table is also best option for a kid-friendly interior with its versatility and had no sharp edges.

 

Create a Play Room

Make a distraction and create a play room that they will never notice your display sculptures. Design the room that is both comfortable and entertaining for your child. Display your children’s books like an art gallery and this will make it easier for them to choose one.

It is important to maintain a balance when designing rooms for children, choosing out minor details that cater to their preferences but still incorporating timeless pieces of furniture that can be passed down through generations.

 

“Adult-Only” Room

Establish an adult-only zone, which means a toy-free zone. It may take the form of a cozy family room or a breakfast nook, both of which are ideal spaces for get-togethers.

Other Things to Consider for Kid-Friendly Interiors

  • Anchor drawers and shelves to the wall to prevent them from tipping over
  • Hide wires and cables from the reach of children by encasing them
  • Use socket protectors or guards in exposed sockets
  • Add window latches and locks for any low-lying windows that are within easy reach of children
  • Consider installing a baby gate at the top of the stairs or in the kitchen to prevent children from entering potentially dangerous areas when they are left unattended.
