Use these easy (and affordable!) ideas in your home to create spaces that are as durable as they are dazzling.
Living Room Lowdown
- Choose durable upholstery that looks better at it ages. Leather is easy to care for and never goes out of fashion.
- Create different seating areas. Coffee-table seating is perfect for games and coloring; wide sofas are better for reading.
- Use wipe-clean paint. Grubby hands needn’t be a bother, even on pale walls, if you use a finish, such as eggshell, then most stains can be removed from.
- Go for washable slipcovers -- a must for a family room and perfect when the fun spills over.
