10 ways to make your home more kid-friendly

A lot of people are unsure of how to make their home friendlier for kids. Beyond adding a couple of toys and putting away any bottles of alcohol, they are stumped. Well, if this sounds anything like you, you are in luck. In this article, we are going to cover 10 ways that will help you make your home more kid-friendly. Some of them are quick and easy solutions that you can implement almost immediately, while others are larger projects that you will have to take some time to tackle.

Different ways to make your home more kid-friendly

If you are trying to make your home more kid-friendly in order to accommodate your friends' or family's kids, you need not struggle much. By making your home safe and bringing in a couple of toys you will make your home a heaven for visiting kids. But, if you have your own kids on the way and you want to prepare your home for them, you will need to do a bit more.

Make your home safe

As a responsible adult, the first thing you should deal with is making your home safe for kids. This not only means dealing with general home safety but also implementing child safety locks on cabinets and closets. Remember, if there is a way for a kid to access a dangerous item, they will find it. It's like they have a gift for it. Also, you want to avoid having sharp corners in your home. You can deal with this easily by getting pads and placing them on the more shaper points in your home like doorknobs and table corners.


The safety of your home should be your primary concern.


Even without kids, you should declutter your home every once in a while. But, if you want to make your home more kid-friendly, the surest way to do it is to declutter. Kids need room in order to play properly. And if your unnecessary clutter is laying around, they are bound to break it or hurt themselves. So, go to sites like and learn how to declutter your home.

Put fragile items away

Once you put away your clutter, you might still be left with certain fragile items laying around your home. Well, if you truly want to make your home child-friendly, you need to put them away as well. Even if you think that they are not in the way, or that kids cannot reach them. Trust me. Before you know it, a ball will hit your fragile object and you'll wish that you've put it away. So, do the right thing, and move them. You can either use your garage or use a storage unit. Only remember to hire competent movers, if you plan on transporting fragile items. Even Downtown Manhattan relocation can be simple if you have the right movers at your side.

Space for kids

You can avoid dealing with movers if you manage to exclude a place in your apartment that will be just for kids. This is usually easier to do if you need to have kids in your home for a short amount of time. You can clear out a makeshift playroom and put them there. But, if you have kids on the way, this will be a bit more difficult. The best thing to do is to have a designated space where all the toys will be. But still, you want to give your child relative freedom to explore your home.

Rounded furniture

This means that you need to take extra steps in making your home safe to explore. And, unfortunately, installing child safety locks and placing pads on sharp corners will not be enough. The next thing you need to do is to get rounded furniture. No amount of padding can offer you the safety that rounded furniture can. So, do yourself and your child a favor and opt for this type.

Use small carpets

Having a large carpet while taking care of kids is a disaster ready to happen. A child is bound to spill something on your carpet. If you are lucky, it might be water. But, let's not kid ourselves, it's going to end up being grape juice. And, as you can probably realize, taking a small carpet to the dry cleaners is much easier than hauling a large one. So, if you want to make your home more kid-friendly, focus on designs that have small carpets.


You can even get away with a medium carpet. Just get something that is easily manageable.

Fixed cushions

Also, try to get furniture with fixed cushions. One of the first things that you'll notice once you have a child is that it can be really hard to keep your home organized. And, a neat trick you can implement is getting fixed cushions for your furniture.

Encourage the outdoors

There are countless researches and articles that show just how important it is for kids to spend time outdoors. Therefore, what you want to do is to organize your home so that it stimulates kids to go outside. This means that they should have outdoor toys in their yard. You can even build a fort for them or a sturdy climbing gym. Let your imagination run wild, and try to see what your kids like.


Think of your backyard when you try to make your home more kid-friendly.

Let kids change their environment

The last thing we mention is actually quite important. A lot of people forget that kids change over time and that their environment should reflect that change. So, when your kids develop, try to organize your home around them. The more their home changes with them, the more they'll feel that they belong in it.

Embrace the silliness

Keep in mind that kids are all about having fun and enjoying life. So, if you want to make your home more kid-friendly, you need to give up the idea of a beautiful, posh home. Instead, try to first focus on making your home healthy and safe for your family. And then, implement silliness. Odds are that you'll learn to enjoy it as time goes by.
