Family Friendly Décor: Three Stylish Ways To Decorate Your Family Home

Decorating your home was a challenge in your single days, but now that you have a family decorating has taken on a whole new level.  Along with making sure that your home is stylish, you also have to make sure that its kid friendly.  Big glass center pieces, white rugs, and pricey décor items are generally out of your scope, but that doesn’t mean that your home can only be decorated with items from Fisher Price.  There are a lot of ways stylish parents can decorate their homes in a kid friendly fashion, and you do it without having to spend a lot of money.  If you want to have a fabulous home and happy kids, make sure you follow these decorating tips.
Forget the fridge, pick up frames
If you have a budding artist in the family you probably have a lot of art work hanging on your fridge.  If you want to decorate your home with unique décor pieces, you should consider hanging your kid’s artwork on the walls instead of the fridge.  Find a few frames and pick some of your children’s best pieces and adorn your walls with them.  You’ll have some truly unique décor pieces, and your children will love feeling like they’re part of the décor process.
Use outdoor rugs indoors
You may have had your eye on some truly exquisite designer throw rugs, but the thought of seeing them covered in spilled juice and crayon marks make you cringe.  If you want a stylish throw rug that can withstand family friendly messes, consider using an outdoor rug to spice up your indoor space.  There’s no rule that says you can only use outdoor rugs outside.  Outdoor rugs are much easier to clean than indoor rugs, and since they were designed to withstand mother nature they can handle your young ones.
Say goodbye to pink and blue
When the time comes to decorate your children’s rooms, you may feel inclined to stick to pink items for your daughters and blue items for your sons.  It seems natural to stick with “gender appropriate” colors for your kids, but if you want to give their rooms a unique look break free of the blue and pink barriers. Consider using bright vibrant colors like yellow, orange, and green to give their space a unique look.  You’ll also save yourself a lot of money in future decorating costs in case you have another child that’s the opposite gender.
