Creating a Kid-Friendly Living Room

Having children in your home is true blessing, but it can also be a challenge.  While your interior design choices used to be about aesthetics, when kids are involved, you also need to think about practicality and safety. Kids move around fast and can cause a room to quickly feel cluttered (toys, crafts, more toys, etc!).  Consider these tips from England Furniture on how you can start to create a kid-friendly living room.

 

Avoid Sharp Edges!

Almost every parent or guardian has had the experience of watching their toddler fall, just nearly missing the corner of that coffee table, end table or TV stand. These items are typically the perfect height for your children to bang their head on so, to create a safer environment, purchase tables with rounded edges.  England Furniture has a wide range of England Furniture tables that you can choose from.

Kid-Friendly Sofas and Couches

Leather couches and sunbrella fabrics are fantastic options when creating a kid-friendly living room.  Leather is great because it wipes clean, it is a tough material, and often looks best once broken in. Darker colored fabrics, as a rule, also tend to wear better than lighter fabrics.  Many professional interior designers also recommend that parents invest in their upholstered furniture by purchasing stain-resistant fabrics.  England Furniture has a wide range of fabrics and leathers to choose from when purchasing living room furniture.

The Perfect Choices for Walls

When considering your wall paint, choose a washable paint sheen.  A paint color in semi-gloss, stain, or eggshell, can be easily cleaned up with some mild soap and a damp rag. If you prefer a matte finish, flat paints have the benefit of touch-up painting, and without the presence of brush marks.

 

Don’t Forget the Floors

Floors that are easy to clean can be your best friend in a busy kid-filled household! Dirt, spills, and crumbs are going to happen!  Think wood, laminate, tiles, or vinyl.  If you prefer carpet, consider laying down carpet tiles so you can easily replace as needed.

 

Storage, Storage, and Some More Storage

You can’t have enough places for storage when creating kid-friendly living room so make sure you purchase entertainment centers, bookcases, and tables that provide some places to store all those toys, games, and craft items.  Then think outside of the box by purchasing one of our England Furniture ottomans that open up for more storage.
