Convertible Stairs And Ramp by Chan Wen Jie

The must have: a home elevator

There is a high chance that you are making the changes to an interior of a storied house. The worst negative aspect when it comes to creating an elderly friendly interior and atmosphere are the stairs. Stairs can be dangerous. Even for young people, climbing up the stairs can be tiring and energy consuming.

Mistakes To Not Make When Building a Jungle Gym


Building a jungle gym is no easy task. It takes up a lot of thought and energy. Some of the decisions that you will have to make, especially if this is for business purposes will intimidate you or confuse you which is why there is a  rather wide margin of error involved. Here are some of the most often seen mistakes that people do when building or designing jungle gyms and why you should avoid them.

Not Being Open Minded about Kid’s Capabilities

If you are to take into consideration and think about the kids in the community where you are building the jungle gym, you will see that there are kids of different levels of capabilities. Some of them might even be differently abled children. Some of them might excel at climbing while others are terrified of it. This is why it is important to conduct a bit of a survey and study the crowd that will be visiting your jungle gym regularly so that you can ensure it is open and comfortable enough for everybody. Do your research and find Brisbane playground equipment that is inclusive and progressive. Expecting all kids to love swimming, climbing, swinging and running is being narrow-minded. Have something ready for everybody who comes in to have fun.

Not Wanting To Hire Outside Help

Kid are always a handful and while their parents will always be around to look after them. It is generally a wise idea to hire some qualified outside help that will help make things go around a little smoother. Perhaps somebody who will look after the safety and security of the kids in the jungle gym. There could also be somebody to help kids and parents out if they have any issues or need something or may be even in the case of a fall or slip. No matter what you try to say after something negative has happened, the parents will hold your business responsible for the safety of their child. You cannot afford to take any risks where little kids are concerned.

Not Making Parents Feel Welcome

Parents will always be an inevitable part of your jungle gym. They will bring their kids and they will spend time with them in the jungle gym helping them get up on the slides and swings and keeping an eye out for them in general. Most of the time they will be completely engrossed with their kids and will have their hands full but installing some kind of facility to help make them feel welcome as well, will go a long way. For example, a coffee machine or shop, a small hot dog cart, some benches to sit on and maybe a shaded area where they can relax and quickly take a break will always be those additional things that will earn you those much needed brownie points. If the parents feel that they are welcome and that you encourage them to come with their little ones they will enjoy coming with them and that is always good news for you.

How to Make Sure That Your Kid’s Room Is Safe


Your kid’s bedroom is the most important place to them in your entire house. It is where they will study, have fun, fall asleep and have friends over as well. As a parent, while you ensure that the room looks neat and tidy always, you also have to keep an eye out for the safety component to make sure that nothing is there that could potentially harm them. You do not exactly need to childproof the room if the kids are about six years of age or older but it does not hurt to take some safety precautions just in case. Here are some great and easy ways in which you can try to make your kid’s room safer for them.

A few weekends after finalizing the purchase of the beach house they'd been dreaming of, a young couple watched as Hurricane Sandy stormed the coastline of New England and narrowed its gaze on the Jersey Shore, destroying their home and dashing their Summer dreams. Every ending is a new beginning, so the saying goes. Shortly after the devastation came plans for a new home, built high above the floodplain with an elevated interior design plan to match. Starting from scratch with a trusting second

Watch Out For Those Sharp Edges

Most of the furniture that we get in stores today tend to be stylish and trendy. They also have a lot of sharp edges and corners that could accidentally scratch or wound your little one as they run around and play in the room. A bean bag for children however has none of that and is just soft and bouncy and completely safe for use. In the same spirit, look for furnishings that have less of sharp edges and more of rounded out corners so that even if your child does knock on them accidentally, it will not cause them harm.

The Doors and Windows Matter Too

It is important that the doors and windows in your child’s room are functioning right. Make sure that a door stopper is in place to avoid the wind shutting the door unexpectedly and you kid getting their fingers or toes caught in it. For windows, make sure that there are locks from which you can secure them well and also opt for the casement window type that will open outward on hinges rather than the single or double hung windows that are either slid up or down. The reason for this is that in hung windows, the chances of the sliding part falling on your child while they peek out is higher. It will also be a great idea to take your kids through how these doors and windows must be operated and what they must not do so that they too can try to avoid accidents.

The Storage Boxes

If you have any storage boxes in your kid’s room make sure that they are closer to the ground level as opposed to being kept high on top of the closet or a cupboard. The reason for this is that your daughter or son might accidentally knock on it while playing around or might even try to get the boxes down to look for an item and have it topple on to them instead. Keeping the storage boxes clearly labelled in an easy to understand manner and closer to ground level will minimize the accidents that can happen in the room.

The Flooring

The flooring will no doubt be like the rest of your house. What you can do though to prevent slipping accidents is to use anti-slip mats here and there in the room. Something with a good grip will work really well. Rugs are a bad choice because you will have to clean them daily and eventually just discard them altogether.
