When you have children, you have to find furniture that balances style, safety, and function. Family-friendly pieces can fit with your décor and still make it safe for your kids to run around the house. These ideas will allow you to enjoy style, even when you have children:
- Dining Room
Whether you use the dining room every night or only on special occasions, you have to ensure that it is child-proof. Use dining room chairs with dark fabric on the seat so they will not easily show stains. You should also avoid sharp corners and edges on your tables and furniture—try an oval or a round-shaped dining table to prevent unnecessary injuries.
- Living Room
If your living room is not carpeted, consider placing a good area rug in the room. An area rug makes it safer and more fun for children to play. Leather and micro-suede fabrics work well on the couch, especially since they are harder to stain than other materials. Darker fabrics also do a better job of hiding stains.
Your child’s bedroom should be full of fun furniture that cannot easily be damaged. If your kids are young, shorter pieces will be safer. Find a dresser and a bookcase that are not tall so children have easy access to their toys and do not have to climb to get what they want. Decorate the room with the child in mind to create a space where he or she feels comfortable. Keep in mind that dark wood or black furniture are better choices than white.
