For those of us who can't quite let go of our plush upholstery when babies come along, Vila Nova has a magnificent velvet range called Atil, which is wipeable with water and a white cloth. Even squashed raspberries, chocolate, red wine and pen marks come out (according to the video anyway, which is an impressive viewing!) I have yet to test these samples on the fully fledged wrath of my toddler, but I am quietly hopeful for the promised result!

Seems to me children are pretty savvy, and if you allow them, as they go on growing, their own down-time space [if at all possible], they will very quickly learn to return the favour. That's how they hopefully will learn to appreciate a-n-other's space. Toddlers' sticky fingers, wobbly drinking cups....well, why not let them have a bit of room in the kitchen while eating/snacking? Sure saves a lot of tears when things get spread all over sofas, rugs, etc. As for the other toy storage ideas here, try and make sure the children can access their own stuff, by themselves. Arranging attractive baskets, stuffed with toys, games, etc, at adult height isn't going to solve any problems...except to provide an 'out of sight out of mind' solution...in which case, think on. After all, many families across the globe, live in spaces Houzz wouldn't necessarily entertain. I say this with respect to Houzz, but also to the folk who may have these 'problems [?]' but none of these choices.
