Protecting Furniture From Kids

Children are a wonderful, fun-filled addition to any family, but they can be extremely hard on furniture—especially if it wasn't meant for rough-housing kids. I learned this lesson the hard way after I brought my daughter home to a living room filed with cream-colored couches. Her bottles were constantly dripping everywhere, and it was frustrating to see how many stains they accumulated. This blog is all about helping parents to protect their furniture from their kids, so that you can like your house as much as you love them. In addition to making your house look great, protecting furniture can help you to keep your investments intact.

Bought A New Apartment? Types Of Modern Furniture You May Like

If you have just purchased a new apartment and it is unfurnished, you have many choices to make when setting it up. One of these choices is the type of furniture you would like to have. There are different types available including modern furniture. Below is information about two types of this furniture that you should consider purchasing. You can then get busy getting your apartment ready to live in and even invite guests over to enjoy as well!

Mid-Century Modern

One type of furniture you can choose from is mid-century modern. This type is based on furniture from the mid-1900s. You will find this furniture made with natural shapes, minimal silhouettes, and refined lines. Some materials often used are aluminum, plywood, and molded plastic. Mid-century modern goes well with a variety of other styles, including urban modern, so you can mix and max to create a unique look in your apartment.

If your apartment is not carpeted, add some brightly colored rugs on the floor to add some color to your rooms. You should not over decorate your apartment, however, as modern generally suggests minimalist designs.

Urban Modern

Another type of modern furniture is known as urban modern. You often see this type of furniture in homes and apartments that are located in major cities. You will generally find larger furniture when it comes to beds, sofas, chairs, etc. Along with the furniture, you should use decorative accents, such as end tables, mirrors, and pillows. Adding some geometric designs on the walls will complete the look of your apartment.

Black is commonly used with a range of primary or bright colors. For example, you may choose a black couch and then brightly colored pillows on it or a primary color throw. You could choose a white chair to go with a black couch. A variety of materials are used when making urban modern furniture, such as microfiber cloth, leather, glass, light wood, and metal.

Contact a furniture store in your area that sells modern furniture. You can also find this type of furniture online. This will allow you to see the different types that are available. You will find furniture in a variety of price ranges so you should have no problem finding some that fit well with your budget. If you need help with any of this, hire an interior designer to help you design your apartment with modern furniture.
