Tips for Renovating a More Family-Friendly Home

Jan 19, 2022

There’s no doubt that kids can be tough on homes. Luckily, we have some great ideas to help you keep everything under control. Check them out below!

The Kitchen

As the place where the family will no doubt spent a big chunk of time each day, the kitchen plays a central role in the home. Family-centred kitchen renovations can help to not only add value but make your day-to-day living so much easier. Here are some kitchen design features to consider:

Island Benchtops

Island benchtops are a practical and stylish way to not only improve foot traffic in your kitchen, but to offer a mixed-use space for homework, entertaining and more. They also offer great storage, too.

Durable Materials

such as Engineered Stone and Porcelain benchtops will hold up to the demands of a busy household. They’re easy to clean and maintain, and are available in a wide range of options. These materials are popular in kitchens Perth-wide for good reason.

Pull-Out Storage

Pull-out storage and other clever storage solutions can save you time in the mornings when you’re trying to get the kids fed and out of the door.

Home Office

Working from home has now become the norm for many households. Having a dedicated home office space makes it easier to keep on task and get things done. Here are some handy tips to create a functional office in your home:

Consider the Placement

If you’re going to be spending time on the phone or in meetings, having a home office space away from the main kitchen and living space will give you more peace and quiet.

Customised Storage Solutions

Customised storage solutions not only allow you to keep clutter at bay, but can be useful for keeping kids’ school needs organised in their own dedicated area.

A Study Nook

Study nook can double as a home office space during the day if space is limited, and can also offer an area for the kids to do their homework at night.

Wardrobes

Life with kids means a lot of additional stuff in your home. It’s times like these when the right storage solutions can make a huge difference – and wardrobes are a great place to start.

Built in Robes

Built-in wardrobes are great choices for kids’ rooms, especially with mirrored sliding doors to save on space. Amplify storage by installing drawers or shelves, and making the most of the overhead areas.

Walk in Wardrobes

Walk-in wardrobes can be lifesavers with the additional space they provide. Store your seasonal clothing up in boxes here, use flocked hangers to save on hanging space, and invest in the right lighting to make it easier to find what you’re looking for.

Living Spaces

From relaxing after a long week, to spending quality time together as a family, your living spaces will be spaces to create memories over the years. Here are some ways to keep your living spaces looking and feeling great:

Mount your TV on the Wall

Mount your TV on the wall to keep wires hidden from curious hands. Plus, if you want to create the experience of the ultimate home theatres, this is definitely the way to go.

Go for Easy-Care Materials

Use easy-care materials when it comes to your lounges. Leather recliners not only offer comfort and style, but are durable and easy to wipe down if kids spill food or drinks on them.

Entertainment Units

Entertainment Units or dual-purpose furniture (think an ottoman with hidden storage) can help you keep in control of toys, books, games and other miscellaneous items that can easily build up in your living areas.
