Stuck Inside? Tips to Create a Kid-friendly Living Room

Stuck Inside? Tips to Create a Kid-friendly Living Room

Depending on where you are in the country (or the world!) it's safe to say you may be stuck inside. COVID 19 is real, and we all need to do our part at social distancing. That probably means you're spending A LOT of time in your living room, likely with your kids. A living room is supposed to be a place of rest and relaxation, but  once you have small children around, let's just say that things change. At a loss? Now's the perfect time to easily transform your space into somewhere you'll enjoy for months (and years!) to come. Here's how.

Find the right furniture pieces

You're probably not thinking about buying much furniture right now, but it's a great time to "shop your house". Look at other rooms you're not using as regularly, and move things around. You likely have some cushions or pillows you can move in to the room for soft seating areas. Kids love to just collapse and be comfortable! Likewise, a cozy rug is a great addition. If you have a square coffee table (potential hazard for young, busy toddlers) consider moving it out temporarily. Look for bins (or even boxes) that make for easy toy storage. 

High shelves

There are some items and collections that you'll want to place our of reach, so make sure you have a cabinet or shelf that's relatively high. Keep things within your arms reach, but out of your kids'. It's a win/win!

Chalkboard paint

Kids like to paint on everything, which is not necessarily a bad thing. First, it nurtures their creativity. Second, it helps them feel a greater sense of ownership of the place (by marking their territory). Third, it allows them to contribute to the overall design of the place. Ultimately, you may want to paint a wall (or a section of a wall) in chalkboard paint. In the meantime, try taping up large pieces of paper and giving your kids guidance on where they can unleash their artistic prowess!

Durable materials

If there's anything in your living room that's not durable, now may be a good time to move it out. Store it in another part of the house—somewhere you don't use as regularly. Make sure your floors are protected with something that will last. You can always move it back in when the kids get older. Having kid-friendly materials around will ensure that you'll feel comfortable letting your littles play freely. 

A home is meant for living, and by making your space kid-friendly you'll create a space the whole family can enjoy. How do you make your home comfortable for all ages?
