8 essentials for a family-friendly living room

Family-friendly style needs to be able to stand up to the wear and tear of everyday life. Here’s how to decorate a living room you and your family will be able to really enjoy.

Your living room is the cornerstone of the home. From the pitter-patter of little feet to kicking up your own, you want it to be safe and comfortable. But that shouldn’t come at the expense of style! Designing a family-friendly living room is easier than you think. There are lots of ways to create a look that can take a beating but still clean up well for company. From easy-to-care-for fabrics to display cases that keep dust and little hands at bay, you can be practical and stylish all at once.

If you’re looking for a rug that completes the look of your room, but won’t put you into debt every time someone spills something, try a bamboo area rug. It looks great and is easily cleaned with a wipe or a shake. Crate and Barrel, $25.21 - $251.44.
