Houses with kids are a beautiful combination of mess and order. The best thing parents can do is to balance it out with a family friendly decor and some nifty organizing tricks. Here are some ways to do just that for a lovely home!
1. Make use of their artwork
It’s modern and abstract art! Their masterpieces also save you a lot of cash. The kids will feel proud when they see their artwork framed up and it makes the home warmer by having children’s artworks on display.
2. Display words of wisdom
Words of wisdom may be too much for some so it varies for different families. Adding words of wisdom or anything about family values on walls or as a part of a hanging art piece promotes a united family. It may even serve as a word of encouragement for young kids as they grow up and also for family members.
3. Use outdoor rug indoors
Outdoor rugs can make the house family friendly. Since outdoor rugs can be easily washed, it’s also friendly for house pets to trudge around inside the house.
4. Use children’s books as decoration
Children books come in all sizes and colours. Grab this opportunity to decorate your house by using children’s books as art pieces. Another benefit is you get to change the ‘art pieces’ regularly by switching the books around.
5. Style up your vertical storages
While most of the adult furniture will be taken over by kid’s belongings, maintain some adult-ish decoration in your vertical storage such as the bookcases. Keep a section for kid books and toys such as board games while you style up the higher spaces with small decorative figures.
