4 Kid-Friendly Furniture To Keep Your Home Safe
When it comes to wear and tear, sofas cop a beating because they often bear the brunt of actions not meant for it to endure. If durability is your main concern, you can consider getting a leather or a fabric sofa because their surface is wipeable.
Furthermore, choosing a sofa with a sturdy frame will help avoid your children from treating it like a trampoline. In this case, our Olsen Daybed with Trundle is crafted from solid plywood for extra sturdiness. Also featuring hidden trundles that serves multiple functions, it is a perfect addition to a living room, and for those who have children in their home.
Nonetheless, consider carefully where you place your sofa in your home for safety purposes. Never position it against a window because an active child could fall through. If your children are particularly young, have it back onto a wall will stop little monkey flipping over the back and avoiding a huge, potentially dangerous drop.
2) Table And Chair
Anyone raising a child knows the perils of a running toddler and a hard corner! Attaching edge protectors and corner guards to your existing dining, coffee and hall tables is obviously a must. But if you are looking for a kid-friendly furniture, our Iniko Table & Chair Set is exactly designed child-safe to EN71 European Safety of Toys standards.

Not to mention that the table is adjustable above its standard 50cm height by up to 3cm more, which means the table can literally ‘grow’ with your kids and their BFFs.

4) Drawer And Shelving
We all have drawer and shelving in our home, but whether they are kid-friendly or not remains a question. Hence, the best practice is to anchor all of them with screws to a stud wall to prevent child from climbing and pulling the heavy units onto themselves. You can even use spreading anchors to give them a bit more stability.
Otherwise, you may consider buying shelving units with drawers or cupboard doors at the bottom, such as our Sven Bathroom Cabinet, so your kid would not climb on it too easily. Take advantage of its high design to store any breakables or personal items away from curious little hands. With classic design and clean lines, this durable MDF cabinet makes an elegant and attractive addition to your home.
