When planning a nursery or redecorating the family home, it is vital to keep the younger ones in mind as they are susceptible to accidents, injuries & health issues. Between spills, accidents, and constant activity, kids can put you to the test by constantly keeping you on your feet right from their crawling days to their teenage years and sometimes even beyond.
Your home needs to be a place to nurture their hopes and dreams as well as encourage their creativity. For this, it is important to create an inspirational space where their imagination knows no bounds. Here’s a list of do’s and don’ts when it comes to redecorating your home.
Secure freestanding units to prevent it from toppling. Furniture should be functional and not too heavy or lightweight. It’s always better to be safe than sorry, fix all loose and freestanding items to prevent any mishaps for the security of the child.
If you want a colour scheme to stay for a long time without your kids outgrowing them, it’s best to pick a neutral colour for the walls. The wall will serve as a blank canvas for decorative objects.
DÉCOR AND ACCESSORIES
If the walls are a simple neutral tone, then you have the freedom to dress up a plain backdrop with some bunting, vinyl stickers and wall hangings that can easily be removed as your child’s interests evolve.
Floors take a lot of stress, especially when under the domain of your little toddler. Most parents are concerned about tiles because they are hard. Two other prime concerns are – hygiene and ease of maintenance as spilling things on the floor are fun for the child! The best option could be tiles and placement of rugs over it till the child learns not to spill things on the floor. The new Johnson Porselano Royal Care series of beautiful large format vitrified tile slabs is the best choice while redecorating as not only these are highly stain resistance but also are made using anti-microbial technology ensuring minimum maintenance and maximum hygiene for kid-friendly flooring. The large size (4 feet x 4 feet and 8 feet x 4 feet) brings the advantage of reduced grout-lines which further enhances the hygiene and maintenance factor apart from aesthetics.
So now you can stress less and let your kids play more under a safe and fun new home.
