Child Friendly Furniture For Safety

M ost furniture you find in stores is the complete opposite of child friendly furniture. With all the designs on the market now, what you will find is mostly sharp edges, pointed corners, glass table tops, or rough edges.

In fact, most furniture manufactures know their furniture is not child friendly, but these pieces are what people want to buy, so they keep making them.

What a few (smart) manufactures started doing was making child friendly furniture. These are pieces that can be considered safe for kids to be around. Often times they will have rounded edges, maybe leather coverings, or even soft or cushiony padding on the borders.

With so many concerned parents today, it makes sense to create child friendly furniture. A few years ago, this was not too big of a concern, since most people just assumed furniture had to be a certain way.

With the development of the Internet, people began to realize there are other options available to them when it comes to furniture, and especially child friendly furniture.

Even corporate giants like Lowes and Home Depot are catching on to the child friendly furniture boom.

Other than coffee tables and chairs, there are a few other ideas you need to keep in mind with furniture. If you have children, especially toddlers who like to get into everything, you may be interested in end tables that have locking doors.

Most people think of non-sharp corners when they think of child friendly furniture, but it can also mean furniture that keeps children out of potential dangerous things.

One little trick is to take your child into the furniture store with you and see what happens when the kids start "playing" around the furniture you are thinking about buying to see how child-safe it really is. Are their heads able the same height as the table corners? Things like that are sure fire ways to get safe furniture.
