Kid-Friendly Home Ideas

Planning on remodeling your home to better accommodate your growing family? There’s no better time than the present—2016 is the year to improve your home the way you’ve always wanted to! If you need ideas for kid-friendly design, there are many options available. Houzz is one great remodeling resource, and Wentworth is proud to be featured in the Ideabook “12 Features in a Kid-Friendly Home.”


Mudroom Addition in Potomac, MD

The project featured in the above Ideabook is a home addition in Potomac, Maryland—including a mudroom (formerly a porch). As you undoubtedly know, when you have kids, it can be difficult to stay organized. But with the right design, your home can stay clean and clutter-free. This mudroom features elements to facilitate organization—cubbies and coat hooks. It may not seem like it, but children like to hang their coats on hooks, especially if the hooks are within their reach!

Other Kid-Friendly Designs

Kid-Friendly Mudroom

Our team has incorporated cubbies in other rooms as well and has remodeled many basements into playrooms and child-friendly areas.

Other ideas for kid-friendly designs include:

  • Cubbies for playrooms (encourages kids to put away their toys and makes cleaning up easier)
  • Built-in benches in mudrooms and entryways (allows children to reach coat hooks that may be installed at higher heights while also enhancing the overall design of the space)
  • Floating vanities (provides a place to store stools that kids may need to reach the sink without cluttering the room)
  • Chalkboard with magnetic panels (great for any space, from the kitchen to basement playrooms)
  • Two tiered kitchen island (allows you to help the kids with homework while preparing dinner)

“ I had several ideas on how to overhaul my galley kitchen and family room but Wentworth gave me three fantastic designs that had never occurred to me. I ended up choosing a combination of two of the designs. When they began work, they were at the house working every single weekday, with no exceptions. Their attention to detail went way beyond what I would have noticed. They cared a great deal about the quality of their work, and took pride in it. They finished ahead of schedule, and we could not be more pleased with the results. ”
