child proof a kitchen??? What next!! Just use common sense and buy less products.Children grow up quicker than you think..how about adult proofing a kitchen or grannie proofing a kitchen......never heard of anything more silly!

By the way instead of revamping the kitchen do what i did..we made a giant playpen that could be taken down in the evenings..saves all that planning and extra expense and you can pass it on to someone else when your children grow out of it.

Kids Rule Interiors

Thank you so much for including me in this article. What lovely comments too. I agree that high chairs can be big and cumbersome and stick out literally and aesthetically so customising them a bit to blend in and choosing one like the Stokke which will grow as your child does is a great idea. This article isn't so much about baby proofing your kitchen as making the most of it for your child so that they have more fun while you are trying to get things done. I miss my son riffling through his cupboard bashing pots and pans - now he sits at the kitchen table and makes up Pokemon comics! how times have changed and aren't we lucky to have had the flexibility in the design of our kitchens to be able to adapt as they grow?
