Kid Friendly Décor Adults Will Love

Having kids can mean a lot of changes in your home and life, but it doesn’t mean you have to give up having a beautifully decorated home.  While certain décor styles may no longer make sense for you, there are some great ways to make your home kid-friendly and fun while still being stylish.

Bright Colors And Shapes

Look to mid-century décor for ideas that kids will find fun and fresh but adults will find classic and clean.  Brightly colored bar stools, chairs, and modern looking furniture can make a very kid-friendly environment with a classy adult touch.

Throw pillows in bright colors are fun for kids to use as on-the-floor seating, and can also brighten up the older furniture in your house.  If you don’t want to buy new furniture until the kids are no longer spilling all over it, simply update it with cushions.

Family Room Fun

Your family room is a place for everyone to hang out, so it should welcome the kids as well as you.  Look for functional furniture that does double duty.  A coffee table that has storage underneath is perfect for stashing toys and books.  Storage ottomans provide more places to hide kid’s toys while also giving the kids a place to sit.

Kids give you a license to do some fun things with your décor you otherwise might feel aren’t appropriate.  Everyone loves bean bag chairs, and they’re the perfect addition to your family room for movie night.  They come in many colors and sizes and make great extra seating.

Bathrooms Kids And Adults Can Share

If you don’t have enough bathrooms for everyone to have their own, you can still create a grown-up bathroom that’s kid-friendly and fun.  Choose a color scheme that welcomes kids but doesn’t include cartoon characters, such as an island theme or bubbles.  Use a wall-mounted draining holder for all the tub toys-it will keep them out of your way and also make sure the water drains out to prevent mildew.

Get everyone some soft towels in bright colors to match the bathroom, and give each child a place to hang theirs.

A home that adults and kids share doesn’t have to be overrun by the kids or off-limits to them either.  With some kid-friendly décor and storage ideas you can still feel like your home is your own while letting the kids feel welcome in their space as well.
