5 Awesome Child-Friendly IdeasLiving & Lifestyle
4 minutes read
It may feel exhausting planning for a child friendly home, especially with a seemingly endless list of guidelines to follow. But ultimately we think the best method is to avoid over thinking, and instead enjoy the creative process as a family! We've collated a few suggestions, hoping they'll help you create a stellar child friendly environment!
1. Plenty Of Quotes
Quotes are a fantastic way of instilling values, especially if your children are exposed to them day in and day out. And what better way to display these quotes than on your walls? The internet's your most convenient search engine, so make use of it to find a quote which embodies the values you wish to pass on to your children!
If you're great at art, painting the quote onto your walls yourself could make for a fun bonding activity with your kids; you just have to create an outline of the text while they fill in the spaces with colour. If you're not so confident with DIY art, find a suitable store to do up a customized decal of your quote!
2. Displaying Their Art
You don't need expensive or abstract art pieces to fill your walls, all you need are a few pieces done by your own kids! When they come home from school with a completed art piece in tow, frame it for them. It adds a personalized touch to your home and shows them how proud you are of their work.
After accumulating a myriad of colourful pieces done up by your kids, the end result is bound to look gorgeous! They may not be a bunch of art professionals, but children do their work with a lot of heart and it'll definitely show.
3. Utilize Colours & Prints
Your kids' rooms don't have to be gender biased, so it's best not to use the typical pink and blue shades. Instead, a good mix of different colours and patterns work better, and we'd encourage you to be unafraid to make bold choices.
If your child has a particular theme or character they are obsessed with, you might want to consider having their room head in that particular direction. Make sure not to overdo it though, keeping a stylish balance to the overall result.
4. Child Friendly Materials
We know kids are sometimes messy; they tend to spill things and ruin furniture from time to time. For this reason alone we urge you to select materials which are easier to wash, eliminating problems which are bound to give you a headache if any furniture is accidentally ruined.
Avoid picks such as rugs as well, since they're more difficult to clean if anything gets on them. We know these particular guidelines can sometimes sacrifice good design, but it's better to be safe just in case!
5. Collaborate With Your Child
Our last, and most important, factor revolves around consulting your child. Since you're planning a home with your kid as the main priority, their opinion will be the one which matters most. Show them any available reference images before renovation even starts.
You never know, but these little minds may surprise you, thinking of ideas even better than your own! Planning together also allows for bonding, and helps you better understand your kid's wants and needs. This can help shape the direction with which your home should head towards to, while also ensuring your kids' needs are taken cafe of!
