Are you starting to wonder if you can maintain nice furniture under the same roof as your children? Well, you can! It can be hard to imagine for some, but there are ways you can keep your furniture free from damage and pesky stains while in the presence of your kids. Here we look at a couple ways you can protect your favourite items and keep your kids safe at the same time.
Washable Slip Covers
Slip covers really were designed for families. Your fancy decorative couch can be just as nice with an elegant slip cover. There are so many different styles and colours to choose from, you are sure to find one that you love. Plus, you don’t have to worry about the spills or stains. You can easily throw it into the laundry and have it come out looking brand new.
Buy Fabrics that are Easy to Clean
If you’re not keen on slip covers, you can also focus on selecting furniture, such as couches and chairs, that have material that’s stain resistant and easy to clean. That way you can have some peace of mind knowing that when spills or dirty hand prints land on your couch, a simple wipe will get them out.
Consider Leather Furniture
If you’re a fan of leather, then consider this when furniture shopping! Leather is much easier to maintain than other materials. You can easily clean it, plus, leather actually looks better as it gets used and worn in.
Add a Rug Pad
If you have new and lush carpet you would prefer to keep looking as elegant as when you bought it, try using a thick rug pad made for protecting your carpet. These can protect you carpet, while minimizing any tripping hazards.
Closed cabinets can help keep your beautiful wine glasses and delicate dining ware safe. There are many cabinet designs that don’t come with handles. Instead you need to press on the top corners in order to open them. This can be a great addition to your décor and a good way to childproof items from your toddlers.
Any parent can tell you that with kids, accidents just seem to happen out of nowhere. But it is possible to furnish your home nicely while having kids. You just need to be selective so that when something does spill on your new couch, at least you know that you can handle it without having to begin shopping for a new one.
