What Houzz contributors are saying:
10. Pare down and simplify. Give yourself and your child some breathing room. Go through the house — together with older kids, but on your own if your kids are small — and gather up all of the old, broken and superfluous toys and games to toss or donate to charity. A simplified space is more calming to kids and parents alike.Tell us: How are you coping with kids' being home for the summer? Any tips or fun activity ideas to share?
8. A clean backdrop. This cottage feels spacious and serene, thanks in great part to fresh white wall paneling throughout. It's one of the oldest tricks in the book, but an all-white space really can work wonders.See more of this 540-square-foot home
