These Fabulous Pet & Kid Friendly Decorating Tips will make every day life a little bit easier for you and a lot more fun for the kids and pets!
These fabulous Pet & Kid Friendly Decorating Tips are going to help you make a more livable space for the entire family. Storage that works and looks good… easy to clean furniture… rugs that can hide a stain or two… imaginative spaces and so much more.
Slipcovers are an incredible blessing. They are available in all different sizes, colors and patterns. If you can’t find one to buy you can have them made or make them yourself. You never have to worry about all those spills and stains ruining your sofa or chair again. Let’s also add they are great for pet owners too! Just remove… wash and place them back! Perfect for sofas, chairs, dining room chair, ottomans and more. This is a purchase you will never regret
Use Benches at Tables
A Bench at the Kitchen and Dining Room tables is great for many reasons. First, you can fit more kids comfortably on a bench and let’s not forget to mention that benches are so easy to wipe down and keep clean. You can add a cushion pad and that can always be washed.
When it comes to choosing a rug there is a plethora of them out there. I highly recommend a Vintage Style or Highly Patterned Rug with a blend of colors. You are going to love them. Number one… they don’t show the dirt nearly as much as a solid rug and that makes all the difference. With normal upkeep your rug will look incredible for a very long time. The pattered rugs are also much more forgiving when it comes to stains. A win win with Kids and Pets! They are also a great base for the kids to play on! The rug selection out there… FABULOUS… the only downside is it takes forever to choose because you will fall in love with one after another.
Use chalkboards in your room designs. They are wonderful in a child’s room or family room. An entire wall… a fun shape… a large chalkboard… anything your heart desires. It adds character to the room… can be easily cleaned and the kids can express themselves whenever their heart desires!
Decorate with Faux Plants
There is something about plants throughout the home… they add charm… warmth and the right about of cozy. There are however big problems with them. They take time to care for (and you are busy with work… taking care of the kids… walking the dog… cooking and the other huge list that is waiting for you). Now the most important one… many plants are poisonous (especially to dogs and cats). So you never ever have to worry if you can have a certain plant if it is faze and you are never putting your loved ones in danger. A lot of kids like to play with dirt and you might not be looking… you don’t want them touching that dirt with the additives and you never want them putting it in their mouths EVER. Another winning factor when it comes to kids and pets is they knock things over all the time and with a faux plant… NO clean-up and not chance for any other accident! My vote is for faux all the way… it removes a lot of fear from my day.
There are a million and one baskets out there… all shapes… sizes and prices. Let me just say… the right ones are out there for you and your family! Have them in all your rooms… that way the kids can have some of their favorite toys and they can clean them up in a snap! The help out so much with clutter! Great for the doggie to have their own basket too to keep all their favorite toys and balls in. The baskets look incredible and they keep everything looking fabulous. I highly suggest getting some with lids too!
Kid Wall Gallery
Nothing makes your child feel prouder than when you hang their artistic masterpieces up! It could be on the fridge… bulletin board but I ask… why not their own Gallery Wall!!! Gather together all their different creations and look for an assortment of colors… shapes… designs… themes… a really good eclectic selections! Then make sure you have a nice selection of sizes! Once you do… mat… frame… hang!!! They are going to flip and your wall is truly going to look amazing. This is a memory that will last a lifetime and hopefully will be a tradition that your children do if they have a family in the future. Just like a museum… the art can be ever changing and new items can be added! OH the possibilities!
Have you considered Black doors? They are extremely popular… not only do they look fabulous but they don’t show the fingerprints and dirt any where near those white and pastel shades! Of course you have to clean them regularly… but when things get behind… they still look amazing! Food for thought.
You might want to consider metal chairs that are usually used outside inside! They save space… they stack… they are super simple to clean and let’s face it… they are Industrial Farmhouse Fabulous!
The magical Pouf comes in all different styles… colors and shapes and they are all perfect for the little ones and the kitties and doggies! They look fabulous and can be used as a small table while they sit on the ground and adults have many uses for them too! Always nice to have more soft items in a space when kids are moving about too! Endless possibilities!
Create a special place for kids… a space where they can go and it is just there’s! A reading nook if a wonderful idea… filled with their favorite books and then add comfy seating… some of their favorite things… maybe a mural on the wall… the possibilities are endless. How about a Teepee… a Magical Closet… the list goes on. They will cherish this space!
