The kitchen is one of the busiest areas of your home, so making your kitchen a child-friendly zone is a must. The right kitchen design will allow you to bond with your child and prevent any accidents and negative experiences. Handyman Connection of Butler Warren offers some tips on making your kitchen child-friendly.
- Organize Your Kitchen Properly – Children are naturally curious. With that in mind, you need to organize your kitchen to keep your kids safe and secure at all times. Place your knives, scissors, and forks in a drawer with a childproof latch. Place the chairs and step stools away from the stove. Put the garbage can behind a cabinet with a childproof latch. Store vitamin or medicine bottles in a high cabinet to keep them far from reach.
- Get a Safety Gate – A safety gate will prevent children from getting in the way once you are cooking. It prevents your kids from entering the kitchen without supervision. It’s your first line of defense against kitchen hazards. Make sure that your safety gate has a childproof lock and your kitchen will be much safer for your kids.
- Practice Electrical Safety – Make sure to cover all electrical outlets in your kitchen and around the home. You don’t want your kids poking the outlets with metal objects. You also need to keep all your kitchen appliances unplugged when you’re not using them. Make sure that the cords are out of reach as well.
