Backyard Wonderland: Creating a Kids Play Space In Your Backyard

Having children made me look at my home's backyard from a whole new perspective. As my little ones started walking, I began to see how I could turn my backyard into a playground that was safe and secure for them to play. After spending a lot of time researching the safety and stability of the play structures and materials that were out there, I built a play area that's secure and fun for my kids. I created this site to share all of the ideas that I had as well as some other things I've found over the years to help other parents create the perfect play space to bring the family together at home.

When you are furnishing your home, you want to pay extremely close attention to certain furniture pieces around the house because they are going to have very important roles in your home. Along with a pleasing look, you are going to want to consider other factors such as the comfort and other features the furniture offers. Here are some of the more important pieces of furniture and the reasons why choosing carefully is very important.

Mattresses

You need to be sure you put plenty of thought into picking the right mattress. You want to choose the right size. Make sure you have plenty of room in your bedroom for the mattress and that you also have plenty of room for yourself. You also need to be sure the mattress is comfortable for you. If you don't like the mattress that you are sleeping on, then it can cause you to have trouble sleeping. Not only may you have a hard time going to sleep, but you may also toss and turn all night and even wake up throughout the night. You can also wake up with stiffness and back pain if the mattress isn't right for you.

Living room seating

When it comes to picking out the couches and chairs for the living room, you want to make sure you have all of the seating you need without taking up too much space in the living room. You also want the couches and chairs to be the right size for the family. You should be able to sit comfortably on them with your feet still able to touch the ground. Make sure the cushions feel comfortable when you sit on them and when you lean back on them. If you like to relax in a comfortable chair, consider getting at least one reclining chair so you can lean back to enjoy TV.

You want there to be enough matching chairs for everyone. The chairs need to be sturdy and they need to be comfortable. Make sure they have a wide enough seat that everyone will feel comfortable in them when they sit in them.
