Kid Friendly Homes

Those with children understand the importance of child-proofing a home. At the same time people want a cool place to live that hasn't had everything sanitized, referring to style and comfort. Today (found on MSNBC) gave a few tips on making a kid friendly home.
  1. Look for Functionality
  2. Don't be afraid of color
  3. Use durable textured fabrics to upholster furniture
  4. Choose materials that age well
  5. Create a catch-all space

There is certainly a transition for most people when a new child becomes part of the family. Small objects are elevated, corners are padded, and stairs are restricted. However, they are a blessing and the changes provide great excuses to redesign and redecorate.
