Children bring life and joy to the home—along with messes and accidents. 

Of course, it matters to let kids be kids and learn and explore freely. But how can you best accomplish this while also caring for and preserving your home? 

There are smart ways to child-proof your home that help preserve it, and also protect your children from potential hazards.

Here are a few ideas you can apply in your daily routine to help your cabinets resist damage, and still let your kids live life to the fullest along the way. 

How To Protect Your Cabinets From Kids

  • Make it a habit to remove shoes at the door, and avoid wearing them in the kitchen if possible. You might be surprised how often shoes kick and scuff up cabinet surfaces! 
  • When spills do happen, clean them up quickly. This helps prevent warping, stains, and permanent damage on your cabinets. 
  • Place protective pads or bumpers on furniture or along areas where furniture is likely to come in contact with your cabinets. This can help prevent scratching and dents. 
  • Place rugs in high traffic areas of your kitchen to help prevent slips and falls that could leave your cabinets in their wake. 
  • Wipe down your cabinets often to remove dust, particles, finger smudges, and more that are sure to find their way onto your cabinets on a regular basis. These can scratch and dull your cabinet finish.
