    3. Say no to rugs, pillows and bedding that can’t get tossed in the washing machine. Large bath mats and rugs can be somewhat difficult to clean. Instead, look for smaller rugs in materials that you can throw in the washing machine, such as flat-woven cotton rugs. Get a few that are about 2 by 3 feet and put one in front of the kitchen sink, one in front of the bathroom sink and one outside the tub. Toss them in the wash every week or so, and they’ll be good as new. Same goes for throw blankets and pillows. You’ll be much happier if you can just toss something into a load rather than try to spot-clean it or have it professionally cleaned. 4. If you can’t wipe it, reconsider it. A lot goes on at our dining table — more than just eating, such as coloring, painting, playing with Play-Doh and slime, and handling all other sorts of gunk that companies have come up with to seemingly give parents a panic attack. Don’t let it. Try to find materials that are easy to wipe down. We once had an unstained wooden dining table that seemed to absorb every marker (even the so-called washable kind) and paintbrush stroke like it was a hipster covered in tattoos. I recently bought an inexpensive yet sturdy table made of medium-density fiberboard (MDF) covered in acrylic paint. It’s incredibly easy to wipe off, and I even dared to buy it in white (I know!). Granted, the top surface on products like this is pretty thin. If any large chunks or dents are taken out of the surface, the wood-colored fiberboard will show through. Good thing it was cheap. Additionally, I can’t stress enough how much of a blessing a broken-in brown leather sofa has been. Every smear from markers or yogurt or grubby little fingers comes off with a quick wipe-down. Of course, you still need to be careful with scratches and punctures, but in my experience, those have been much less of an issue than spills.

    Real simple. If you have a penchant for midcentury design, a banquette seat can look right at home. Here, the rather traditional striped upholstery of the banquette is a nice counterpoint to the modernist Saarinen table, Eames chairs and Poul Henningsen pendant light. As a bonus, the banquette pulls double duty with discreet built-in storage.

    80. Colorful artwork found at Kenise Barnes Fine Art blends well with the modern furnishings of this kitchen area in Auckland, New Zealand.
