Family-friendly style needs to be able to stand the wear and tear of everyday life. Your living room is the cornerstone of the home. From the pitter-patter of little feet to kicking up your own, you want it to be safe and comfortable. Furnishing a family-friendly living room is easier than you think. Here’s how to furnish a living room you and your family will be able to really enjoy...
If you’re looking for a rug that completes the look of your room, but won’t put you into debt every time someone spills something, try a bamboo area rug. It looks great and is easily cleaned with a wipe or a shake.
This playful piece adds interest to a living room. It makes a perfect footrest, extra table or even an extra seat! Soft, with no hard edges, it’s also easy on little heads that might bump into it!
Don’t fret about packing away your objects and mementos. Find a cabinet like this to suit your home decor and keep all your cherished items on display, but out of reach from curious little hands.
Sofa's have comfort and style written all over it. Clean lines keep it classic, or brushed cotton has a soft, well-worn look that’s very inviting. Pre-treated fabric wipes clean with a sponge – no matter what the grandkids throw at it.
Get a rich, sophisticated look with leather that’s easy to maintain and won’t stain. Resilient, stylish and versatile, you can let little ones be little ones without any worry.
Want something that the whole family feels comfortable cozying up with? Throw pillow covers say ‘hug me’ over and over again. Textured and muted colours complement both bold and neutral rooms.
Side table/Coffee tables
Don’t pare your room down to the bare essentials in an effort to achieve family-friendly style. Keep things interesting with accents like tables. Aim for robust, curved designs that make it kid-friendly while giving you an attractive place to rest your coffee and magazines.
