A kid-friendly home doesn’t have to look like a daycare. Our designers share decor ideas that keep up with your grown up style AND kiddos.
Benches at Tables
Benches are easy for kids to climb up on their own and they easily fit more kiddos at the table if friends come over. Also, make sure you opt OUT of an upholstered bench for quicker clean up. Some of our clients temporarily replace the nice upholstered chairs that came with their table with a bench while the kids are young, and then return the chairs when the kiddos are older. We love the Uttermost Stratford Salvaged Wood Bench (pictured) and Uttermost Herbert Reclaimed Wood Bench because they have the perfect blend of style and sensibility.
If you have kids, you know drips, spills, and muddy footprints just come with the territory. They can all be minimized with patterned rugs like this Uttermost Maze Rug, Uttermost Calandria Rug, or Uttermost Rescued Leather & Hemp Rug (pictured)
Trade Coffee Table for Ottoman
Ottomans are a more kid-friendly option versus a traditional coffee table because they offer a soft space for a baby to stand against… or cruise – and fall – on when they start getting mobile. It’s also the perfect stage for the bigger kids to show off their dance moves, while still a perfect platform for your cocktail tray and drinks after the kiddos go to bed. Some of our favorites are the Uttermost Kaniel Tufted White Ottoman (pictured), Uttermost Blake Modern Ottoman, and Melange Meyers Cocktail Ottoman.
Functional Storage with Style
Kids = stuff, but that does mean you have to see it. “A place for everything and everything in its place,” right? We love pieces that have hidden storage like benches, storage ottomans (pictured), nesting ottomans, an ottoman table, console, table
Kids are rough on furniture. Like, really rough. Get the look you want with the durability you need with pieces like this Kincaid Table that feature a special Kincaid Performance finish on top to make it super durable and easy to clean.
You never know when you might need to clear some space for some fort building or a spontaneous dance party. Castors make pieces easy to move around the room if you need to make some extra space quickly and easily. This Uttermost Brunner Round Storage Ottoman not only has castors, but it also has a large space for storage. The epitome of stylish and kid-friendly!
