Protecting Furniture From Kids


About Me

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.

Why Furniture Makes the Room in Interior Design

Maybe you have perused Better Homes and Gardens or Martha Stewart's Living. Maybe Pinterest has a hold on you. Whatever the medium, you are looking for ideas on how to redecorate your home. You could also be looking for ideas on how to decorate for the holidays that is extremely festive and beautiful. Whatever the reasons or seasons, interior design plays a big role in your home. That said, you should not be surprised that every picture of every home and every interior room has furniture in it. Furniture makes the room when it comes to interior design, and here is why.

Inviting Rooms Are Relaxing Rooms

A room is not a room if it is devoid of furniture. Nobody wants to walk into a room and stand the whole time. It tends to make people tired, anxious, and eventually unpleasant. 

Every room that entices you to enter it does so because there is a place to sit or lay down. Most rooms are expected to be relaxing rooms because a home is a place of comfort and security. Chairs, sofas, loveseats, fainting couches, and so on all silently say, "Come in. Sit down. Relax." Even office spaces have furniture for guests to sit down. 

Upholstery and Wood Finishes Harmonize the Room

When you see furniture in ads and pictures, what springs to mind the most? Usually, it is the fact that the wood finish or the upholstery seems to harmonize and complement everything else in the room. It can even tie the most ubiquitous of decorating components together in a unique way that makes them all stand out (in a good way). Sometimes, the upholstery matches other objects and color schemes in a room so perfectly that it makes the furniture and those colors attract attention.

Empty Rooms, No Matter How Well-Decorated, Make People Anxious

It is a strange psychological sort of thing with humans. An empty room, no matter how well the walls are decorated, still creates a sense of anxiety in people. Maybe it is because people associate empty rooms with absence or loneliness. Emptiness is also something associated with lacking, as in lacking wealth, lacking the ability to purchase goods, and so on. Buying and placing furniture in a well-decorated room completely transforms how that room feels to you and to the people who visit you.
