#3 Measure Everything

You may like a bed, painting, coffee table, or what have you, but make sure it fits the room. If it’s too big, you run into the problem of having the piece of decoration taking over the room. It may make maneuvering or other things difficult, or it could just look clumsy.

#6 Durable Stain Resistant Fabric

The leather is a perfect choice for people with small children because it is effortless to wipe off. But bear in mind to avoid white leather as it gets dirty very quickly. A much better choice is darker colours like black, taupe, grey, chocolate or brandy.

#7 Carpet Tiles

Choose carpet tiles beyond wall-to-wall carpet or area rugs. They are easy to vacuum such as other flooring options but when it comes to accidental spills, you can clean the mess for no time. Just take out a single tile, wash it in the sink and once it is dried, put it right back down.
