Most parents who have children want their home to be family- and kid-friendly to avoid accidents and to make their children’s playtime more fun. But it can be challenging to do that when you’re on a budget. Parents who would like to limit their expenses can make full use of the tips from this article about home remodeling by Mid America Exteriors so they can better track their spending.
1. Turning the Attic Into a Playroom
If you are conserving space, the attic may be a great place to start remodeling for your children, provided it’s got enough headroom that they can safely walk around without bumping their heads. If your attic has a dark color, try replacing it with a light and ambient color that welcomes the sun to bring fresh and airy light to the room. You can place a table with chairs designed for children in the new playroom and install cabinets to store toys and art supplies.
2. Imperative Art
In the bathroom, you can encourage your children to wash their hands by creating cheerful signs that will brighten their day. This can be done via a canvas-backed image hanging on the wall. Place letter shapes on the canvas, then press down firmly, especially around the edges. Paint over the canvas using acrylic paint to paint over the canvas. Once the paint has dried, peel off the letters. Ask your home remodeling and siding contractor for other artistic ideas along these lines.
3. Kid in Business
Do your kids like pretending that they are playing in a home office? Set up a mini office for them, complete with office supplies, a play phone and filing system. This way they can play and ‘work’ at the same time.
4. Storage for All
Children accumulate toys. If you need storage for all of these playthings, consider remodeling a space in your garage to create a small storage space for your children’s equipment. Ask a window replacement expert to install a window in this storage so that air can circulate.
