1. A child's-eye view. A great thing to do when designing children's rooms is to literally get down on their level. In fact, babyproofing experts often recommend crawling through your home to spot any potential dangers. Safety issues aside, you can also use this trick to help decide which toys to place on low shelves, where to position that cozy reading corner and where to hang art so your little one will actually be able to see it.2. The healthy home.When kids are in the home, it is so important to be thoughtful about the materials and finishes used around the house, especially if you are remodeling or adding a great deal of new furniture. Natural fibers, reclaimed and untreated woods, paints with low or zero VOC (volatile organic compounds) and air-cleaning plants are all excellent choices.
