Dual purpose furniture
An easy and wonderful way to hide your kids mess are dual purpose furniture!
Specially when the second feature of the furniture is storage!
This will make it the quickest way for you to hide your kids toys when guests arrive. If i would recommend one great piece for this would be ottomans!
Sitting options are never too much and when they come with storage, that’s just perfection!
Here are some of my favorite options, they have durable materials, are easy to clean and will go great with any home color palette.
Rock those covers
Sofa covers, pillow cases…these are great allies that will help you keep your home clean and fresh!
If any accident happens, you’ll just have to take them off and pop them in the laundry machine!
It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3! Literally!
If you were wondering what could be the best fabric for that, i recently stumbled with Emily Henderson blog post about here choice of fabric and let me tell you, she really nails kids friendly interior design! Check it out!
This is one of the biggest features that almost every parent asks when building or renovating a home. Open layout lets you keep an eye on your children wherever they are.
I know that an open layout is not available to everybody, but from where you need to be what can you see? Is there room for you to make a little space for your little one?
Maybe moving some furniture or rearranging the function of the rooms in your home, could create an easier option for you to be able to see what your kids are doing and give you some peace of mind without having to knock down some walls.
And if you really have no visibility between spaces, then what about recycling the baby monitor?
Trays are your friends
Need to keep an eye on your kids so you leave them in the living room, but because of that you don’t decorate your coffee table?
Then don’t worry anymore! Keep your tables decorated, make beautiful vignettes around your home using trays!
Still not getting how this would help? Let me explain, when you decorate a table with a tray, you make a little vignette which is a little scene, kinda like the one in the photo above.
Using a tray limits you to the tray boundaries making it easy for you to place the tray with your ornaments elsewhere while your kids use the table and when there done you can just put everything back just like it was before! Easy right?
Another great idea is to have a kid zone, either a little space in your living room dedicated to your children or a whole room for them to go crazy and enjoy the liberty in that space.
That way even if those spaces aren’t all tidy, it doesn’t really matter, because they exist for them to have fun!
Leaving your social spaces to entertain guests, free of kids toys.
