When you have a little one running around, safety is paramount. Unfortunately, many safety devices are not the most aesthetically appealing. While safety should always come first, you can achieve a beautiful space at the same time and here are a few tips to help you have both.
Safety Devices That Highlight Your Décor
When you have small children, safety gates, bumpers and other protective devices are essential. While the white, plastic and boring devices are often the most prevalent, there are precautionary devices that incorporate all sorts of styles, everything from minimalist to luxurious. Whether you get a safety gate with materials that mimic wood grain, a color-coordinated bumper or custom fire gates to protect from the fireplace, there are creative ways to improve your décor and design while keeping your little one safe.
Anyone who has ever had to babyproof their home knows the daunting and lengthy task that this can be. While babyproofing is an essential step, you don’t have to adorn your home with ugly devices, clear knobs on your stove can protect the kitchen, soft close drawers can keep your home peaceful, quiet and safe and door attachments can provide inconspicuous safety measures to protect from jamming fingers. Don’t be afraid to be creative with your babyproofing.
Organization and Storage Solutions Are Key
If you want to elevate your home’s design and décor, children’s toys can be your aesthetics’ worst enemy and a mess of toys can create a variety of hazards. If you want to have a beautiful and safe home this requires organization and efficiency. By creating storage solutions that can address the abundance of toys, you can teach them the importance and value of a clean and tidy space. Get them involved in the process so that they take responsibility and learn accountability.
While it is not always the easiest task to have a clean, safe and beautiful home, if you take some time to think carefully about your organization and safety precautions, you can achieve the aesthetic that you have always dreamed of while keeping everyone safe.
