My husband and I have a two-year-old son who has just “mastered” the art of walking. He wants to walk absolutely everywhere, and as a young Mum, you can imagine that it’s pretty terrifying. Our family home is not exactly child-proof, which is a concern when I have a child that no longer needs to be pushed places to move around.
I keep having nightmares about my baby walking into the edge of the kitchen bench and cracking his head open. It’s terrifying. I clearly need to have a discussion with my husband about kitchen renovations. Melbourne designers are some of the best in the country, so I’m hoping they can produce a child safe kitchen that is still aesthetically pleasing. I would rather not give up the overall aesthetic of my house, as the cohesive look is something I have been cultivating for many years. Of course I won’t jeopardise the safety of my child for the look, but if we can find a blend between the two, I will be a very happy woman.
Now that I’ve allowed my mind to consider the design possibilities in my kitchen, I’m starting to contemplate other areas of my home that could be redesigned to better suit my two year old. These renovations, whilst being expensive, would be an investment in our lives seeing as my husband and I are both keen to have another child in the future. I’ve decided that I’m going to get in contact with one of the many bathroom designers in Melbourne, to see if someone can propose any design ideas that work for my living spaces. I’m sure that being experts, these designers will have dealt with many of the requests that I will throw their way, which is very exciting for me as the customer.
I love my home, I love my son and I already love my future children. If we can create a space that is a safe and aesthetically pleasing family home for my children to grow up in, I will be a very happy customer.
