Your children are your whole life, but they don’t need to take over your whole house. It’s possible to maintain stylish, organized living spaces that meet the entire family’s needs. We’ve compiled a list of kid-friendly decorating ideas, including must-have storage furniture and the durable sofas and couches that will stand up to practically any mess.

Kid-Friendly Sofas & Couches

Your living room is a high-traffic area, and even with the best intentions (and the strictest rules), accidents are going to happen. Minimize potential damage with a high quality sofa that can stand up to everyday wear and tear. We love this Chesterfield sofa from Jonathan Louis Furniture for its timeless design, impressive construction and plush, fiber-wrapped foam cushioning. As a bonus, the undivided seat prevents toys, crumbs and other detritus from collecting underneath the cushion.

Patterned upholstery and medium-to-dark hues are often popular choices for families shopping for living room furniture, but you’re certainly not limited to those. Even light colors will hold up against stains with a little TLC. Another option is a leather sofa or leather sectional. The durable material is easy to clean and will look great for years to come.

Whichever you choose, be sure to safeguard your purchase with a furniture protection plan from Guardsman. When it comes to keeping your furniture looking brand new, we’ve got you covered.

Storage Furniture

“It looks like Toys’R’Us threw up all over my house,” one mom recently confessed to us. If this sounds familiar, you’re in good company. Kids have a knack for acquiring so much stuff that it’s hard to keep up, keep organized and keep your home feeling like it’s owned by an actual adult.

That’s why we can’t say enough good things about storage furniture. Nothing makes a mess disappear faster than simply shoving it into a drawer or cabinet and just walking away. No shame.

To keep the clutter under control, we recommend having a piece of storage furniture in every room that your little ones frequent. Here are some of our favorites:
