Baby Proofing Your House Without Compromising Style

Posted by Devon Shryock

If you are expecting to have a baby in the near future, you might want to start thinking about how you are going to baby proof your house now so that you can maintain a stylish interior once the baby arrives. Traditional baby proofing methods are often unsightly such as wooden barriers, plastic outlet covers, and foam corner pads on coffee tables. However, there are better (and more stylish) ways to prepare your house for a baby, so let’s see what they are:

Baby proof your home with style by decorating with resilient materials such as paper and wood.

Decorations/Accent Pieces

You can prepare your house for a baby by decorating with items that are made of durable materials such as wood, plexiglass, and paper.

  • Wood is resilient and can often look better if it happens to get small dings or scratches.
  • Picture frames can be altered to have their glass replaced with plexiglass which allows them to still be featured in high traffic areas.
  • Paper decorations, like books and craftables, are lightweight and can be easily replaced if they do get ruined.

New alternatives to classic baby proofing items feature style in addition to their function

Padding/Safety

In the past, many coffee tables had sharp corners and would need to be padded with foam in order to be safe for babies. However, with modern furniture design, you can find stylish furniture that is built with rounded corners, thus eliminating the need to add padding.

Another common safety measure is to block off stairways with unattractive, wooden, barriers. Thankfully, there are now alternatives to the accordion style barrier, such as this chic aluminum and dark wood gate by Munchkin. It even has a quick release swinging gate so non-hurdling adults can pass by.

On tente toujours de convaincre de rester ceux dont on pense que l’école sera moins bien servie, sans eux. Mais quand quelqu’un est prêt à franchir le pas, il n’y a généralement pas grand chose à faP;2e30riour le doublon.
