Childproofing your home is one of the most important things to do if you have a toddler in your house. This is essentially important when you are looking to buy new furniture. Always keep in mind if the piece of furniture you are buying is safe for your baby or not. For example, a coffee table with sharp edges poses a big safety hazard to your little baby, and is absolutely not recommended. Most of the times, the least likely thing happens. While there is not absolutely foolproof way to design your house in a baby safe manner, but following a few guidelines will go a long way in keeping your baby safe and sound in your own home.
If you already have cheap coffee tables that are not very safe for your child, you can use the Safety 1st coffee table edge bumper to cushion the edges of the table; and presto! Your cheap coffee tables have become baby safe models. For table corners you can use corner cushions for glass tables. On the other hand, if you are building the table yourself, you can take care and make rounded edges, and corners. Also, make sure the table is sturdy and doesn’t topple over easily.
Buying Baby Safe Cheap Coffee Tables:
One of the best baby safe cheap coffee tables is the bean bag coffee table. It is just like a soft, plush bean back, with a flat top to be used as a table. This is one of the safest coffee tables in the market, and it poses no danger to your child. Among other options, it’s always safer to go for a wooden table instead of glass. Glass can be very dangerous in case of an accident, and it’s also not as strong as wood. Even if the glass table has rounded edges and corners, it is simply too big a risk to take. A coffee table like the Strathwood folding hardwood bistro table is affordable and also considerably safe. Before buying, always check if the table is stable and doesn’t shake; because it can topple and the objects on it can fall down and hurt your child.
Think About What You Put On Your Table:
Of course you have to be careful with what you put on your coffee table, because a brittle vase made of glass can be shattered easily on falling down. Always place things that are flat, and cannot fall easily. Furthermore, it is simply not advisable to keep heavy objects on the table if there’s a baby in the house. In that case, you can use books, stuffed toys, and flowers to decorate your table top. Also refrain from keeping tiny objects like seashells, buttons, etc. on your table as they pose a choking hazard to your child, which can be extremely dangerous.
All in all, these are useful things that you should keep in mind while going out to buy a baby safe cheap coffee table.
