It is tough enough keeping them safe in the outside world, but you need to extend that same kind of care to your own home as well. It is advisable to ensure that your home is as safe as can be for your little ones, as this way you can be much more confident in your ability to look after them properly.

Clearly, it is always going to be important to ensure that your child cannot easily escape the home, at any young age. You will therefore need to make sure that you keep an eye on your windows and doors, as these can often pose real problems for the household that has children running around. For example, you should endeavor not to leave them open for any period of time, and it is also worth ensuring that you have good quality windows and doors which are not easily broken. Many parents can tell you a number of stories about their child gaining surprising strength and letting themselves out of the home, so be sure not to let that happen to you.

Roof It’s also important to make sure that you keep on top of those problems which can cause further issues for home safety. The roof is the ideal example, as it is so easy to forget about it, and yet leaving it alone can end up causing some serious damage to the home, and opening up your children to some real vulnerabilities. If you are ever in need of help with your roof, be sure to contact your local roof repair company at your earliest convenience. This is not the kind of problem that you want to leave alone for any amount of time, especially if the weather in your area is known to be unreliable or poor. Keep the roof fixed, and your children will be much safer.

1. Bead board and trim If you want to add a pop of color, some texture, or break up the wall color, try beadboard. A 4 foot by 8 foot panel can cost as little as $25, depending on what wood you use and the type of finish you want. For a very small bathroom or half bath, you may be able to get away with buying 3 or 4 panels. Of course, beadboard will look best with trim at the bottom and on top. But, you will create a polished look that can help create an inviting space.

Indeed a great idea but choosing the right colors could also be an issue if you are not really good in it, not to forget the cost of mixed paint colors. So to make my home change its look once in a while, I do the mixing & matching of my decors.

Photo above is my sofa with its dark geometric pattern cover, in grey and black. The sofa cover itself has its matching throw pillow cases but I wanted to give it a different touch this time so I picked a combination of grey and light blue throw pillow case, just because the owl pillow had a blue color on it. I love the warmth feeling it gives my eyes each time I look at it.
