Family Friendly Home Design

When it comes to designing the perfect family friend room, there are a few things to take into consideration. From furniture to flooring, what you add to your room should be versatile and family friends. Carpet is soft and perfect for homes with children, as the plush and soft qualities of carpet make it a great flooring choice in instances where newly mobile toddlers take a tumble, but carpet is also sometimes hard to maintain and care for, especially in higher traffic areas. Here are a few tips in designing the best family friendly room:
• Choose indestructible furniture! Sure a glass table looks elegant and classes up a room, but glass tables are a poor choice for homes with small children. Consider solid wood furniture that will last.
• Often overlooked in room design, long drapes over windows can present a tripping hazard, especially to adventurous wandering children. Keep drapes off the ground to prevent these types of incidents.
• If you choose carpet, try and choose a stain resistant carpet. Brands like Stainmaster and Downs offer a slew of stain resistant carpet choices. Visit a local Flooring America to learn more.
• If you do choose hardwood flooring or other hard flooring choices, be sure to protect them with area rugs and carpets.
• Incorporate savvy storage areas to keep toys and clutter free from view.
• Anything within 45 inches of the floor is considered the danger zone for children. Keep this in mind when decorating and accessorizing.
