How To Prepare Your Home For Your Kids

November 3, 2015
BOOKMARK

Children usually spend the highest amount of time in their own homes, which also means that accidents may have a larger probability to occur at homes. For parents and excited-parents-to-be seeking to create a fun and safer environment at home for their precious ones, here are some tips to consider:

A Bright and Interesting Room to Keep Your Child Cheery And Creative

The common blue or pink for a boy or girl’s bedroom is cliché and dull. Try different gender neutral colours that are brighter for a joyous and cheerful atmosphere for your children. Murals featuring forest-themed or space-themed concepts are also popular these days, and are a hit with imaginative and playful children!

Keeping The Space Safe For Your Kids To Play

Having a child or children can mean having things like diapers, clothes, toys, and books lying about everywhere and creating a potential hazardous environment for them. Having adequate cabinets and shelves that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing can help to declutter your home, and make it safer for your little ones to play about—less falling down and bruises!

Make Your Flooring Softer To Break Those Falls and Tumbles

Lay a plush and soft carpet (make sure it’s non-slip) or a foam mat on the ground, especially in the living room or rooms where your children are likely to spend time playing in. Falls and tumbles may be unavoidable especially when the younger ones are learning to walk, so make it safer and easier on them when they do.

Have Your Children Be Responsible From Young With Appropriately Sized Shelves

Rather than having large cupboards or tables in your children’s rooms, have smaller child-friendly cupboards and shelves. It will help your kids reach for, and put away things better and safer, and also start them early on learning to be responsible and organized for their own possessions from young.

Make Sure Your Furniture Are Sturdy

Curious children like to climb onto furniture—like shelves—and things to explore, or even tug at them and it can mean a trip to the hospital in the worst case scenario, especially if the furniture collapses or gives out easily. While supervision is always advised, be more prepared by having sturdy furniture that will not wobble easily or topple over.

Child-proof Your Furniture

Get bumpers and cushion those sharp table and wall edges/corners to prevent your little ones from bumping their heads or limbs and getting bruises. Colours and furniture like sofas and couches where stains or scratches will not appear too obvious would also be a good choice, allowing children to be free to be themselves.
