Let’s face it: when you’re a young family with a couple of rowdy kids running around the house, it can be quite a challenge to keep your home’s design style neat, not to mention family-friendly. But don’t let that keep you from maintaining a well-designed home.
There are tons of ways to make your home’s interior design not just perfectly-styled but also family-friendly. Here are a few decorating tips for you and your family:
Preserve Childhood Memories with Frames
We’re not just talking about photos. Kids always love to draw and doodle so why not give your children’s art projects some artistic treatment with frames? So go ahead and collect your kids’ drawings of your family or even of a random object. Not only will this be a great design idea, it will also be an apt addition to your home’s young personality.
Prioritize Durability When Purchasing Furniture
If you have a big family with 3 or more kids for instance, it’s a must to child-proof your furniture so your kids don’t have to be walking on tiptoes all the time. With genuine leather, hard wood, and durable rugs, your kids can play and run around freely without worrying about getting scolded for damaging mom’s sofa. It’s practically a win-win situation!
Break the Stereotype of Blue and Pink
You don’t always have to paint your kid’s room pink if she’s a girl or blue if he’s a boy. The idea is to keep the room colorful and adventurous. Consider pastels and prints for a different take on your the color palette of your child’s room.
Assign a Play Area
With active, playful and bright kids, expect that you’ll always have a mess somewhere in the house after they’re done with the day’s adventures. To those families who have an extra room to spare, one great idea is to repurpose the room into a playroom exclusively for the kids’ playtime. This way you’ll have a common area to keep all the toys and avoid a mess somewhere else in the house.
