Immediately when people hear the phrase “kid-friendly” they start thinking that the design is going to be cheap or impractical. The reality is just because something is kid friendly doesn’t mean that it lacks elegance. In fact, when decorating a family room, you can have some amazing pieces that are also kid-friendly – after all, it is a family room!
There are several different ways you can accomplish marriage of elegance with kid-friendly. If the family room has built-in bookshelves, this is a great way to store items, along with books, that adds to the character of the room while not being an item a kid could use as a tree. There are also other pieces such as end tables and plush chairs and sofas that lend themselves to a kid’s usage while a parent appreciates the aesthetics.
