As a parent, you want your kids to feel happy and content at home. Your home should be a haven for all members of your family. If you’ve recently welcomed a new addition, or you have a toddler rushing around, it’s wise to ensure your home is child-friendly and that it works on a practical level. Here are some tips to help you tick the fun and functional boxes.
When you welcome a bundle of joy into the world, one of the first things you notice is that little people have a lot of stuff. Storage is crucial for family-friendly living spaces, and it can make all the difference when it comes to keeping your home clean and tidy and minimising stress at the end of the day. If you invest in storage solutions, it takes a matter of minutes to turn a playroom that resembles a bombsite into a beautiful, neat, clutter-free zone. There are myriad options available, and you can make purchases according to the function and look of the room. In childrens’ bedrooms and playrooms, shelving units, boxes, crates, tubs and systems that have drawers and cubby holes work perfectly. If you’re looking for something chic and stylish for a living room, search for furniture that has hidden storage, for example, tables with pull-out drawers or footstools that have concealed storage under the cushion. You can also create a feature out of open shelving on one wall or hang shelves or wall-mounted units to maximise floor space.
