When raising a family it seems like you are always in the market for some sort of home decor item. Perhaps it’s time for new baby blankets, sheets or bedding or the crib is ready to be replaced with a toddler bed or even a twin bed. Kids grow so quickly that if it isn’t clothing and shoes then it’s towels and sheets you are shopping for and that means repeated trips to the store.
If shopping is not your idea of how to spend quality time with family and friends there are some alternatives –you can buy almost anything you need from shower and bath kits to complete bedding ensembles online. Take a look at the websites of the stores where you usually buy your bedding and bath items. They are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week so you can browse and buy at your convenience – it sure beats packing the kids in the car, fighting traffic and searching for a decent parking space.
When it comes to family bedding down-filled comforters are a very practical solution as natural down is warm in the winter and cool in the summer. By investing in one comforter per bed you can then build a wardrobe of duvet or comforter covers which will allow you to change the look of a room whenever you want. Instead of washing the down comforter you simply wash the cover; this helps to prolong comforter life and it gives you tremendous flexibility as your needs change.
Another family-friendly décor idea is to install a handheld showerhead – they make it easy to shampoo hair, bathe pets and even water plants. Cleaning the tub or shower enclosure is a breeze with a handheld showerhead.
