Keeping Your Kitchen Child-Friendly

According to Safe Kids Worldwide, over 3.5 million children are hospitalized due to injuries they sustain from home. This is because kids love having fun and playing around. If you have kids at home, then here are some tips you can do to make your kitchen a safer place for your kids.

 The first step is to keep your knives and other sharp utensils in your upper cabinets. Kids can always reach the lower part of your kitchen, so make sure that nothing harmful is stored in there. Next, make sure that your kitchen floor is clean and dry.  

If you use electrical appliances like blenders, make sure that they are stored away from kids. It would also be useful to invest in outlet covers to keep kids from inserting their fingers. If your upper cabinets don’t have enough space, try installing safety locks. They are convenient and help keep children away. Lastly, teach your children about the do’s, and dont’s in the kitchen. Simply talking to them can help them understand what not to do.  

For more details on these tips, here’s an infographic by Mr. Cabinet Care.
