Child-friendly can mean different things depending on the person you talk to including parents who have children of differing ages. One of the trends that we seeing people would are investing in real estate want are child accessible features. This could mean double vanities in bathrooms with a sink that is much lower so younger children can reach with ease or lofts with rails that meet the guidelines for crib safety so that everyone can enjoy the upper level of the home. Home improvement projects are easily changed when children grow up and move out.
Chalkboard walls serve numerous purposes
People who have taken up investing in real estate are using unique ways to incorporate features that are appealing to individuals of all ages. While a chalkboard wall is popular and helpful for families who want to list chores for each child, it can also be used to track appointments. Others may use it to keep track of birthdays or special events.
Built-in desks and shelves
Young children need a place to do their homework as well as arts and crafts. Many people who are investing in real estate are choosing to have a built-in desk in their homes because it appeals to people of all ages. Families that homeschool their children get a lot use out of a built-in desk. The shelves are perfect for keeping math workbooks, notebooks, lab folders, completed assignments and other items. High-school students need a dedicated area to study in order to create good study habits.
When buying a home to remodel and sell, several home improvement companies are designing a child-friendly bathroom so that children can easily reach the faucets and other bath items. These kinds of bathroom remodels are a perfect addition to Jack and Jill bathrooms where kids can access the bathroom from either bedroom. They are also helpful for parents who are potty training a youngster.
Open floor plans
Parents of young children need to see where their children are playing. This is especially important for families with toddlers and children under school age. An open floor plan helps parents cook meals, work on grocery lists, or talk on the phone while overseeing the kids.
A trampoline that is placed in the ground provides an excellent spot for kids to play in the backyard. The best thing is that there are no worries about children falling off of the trampoline. Kids will not get choked by netting and cording around the edge of the gear because it is not needed.
We find that including these feature into house not only makes them “child-friendly” but also “teenage-friendly”!
