8 Ways to Childproof your Home

Being a parent is a major responsibility. It takes a lot of work rearing a child. We protect and take care of our children until they are old enough to take care of themselves. Making the home a child proof is one of the first steps we need to consider as soon as our child begin to crawl or walk.

Though, home childproofing may not be 100% effective against unwanted injury, taking extra safety measures is needed to reduce the risk of unintentional injury by hazards in and around the home.

Here are some ways to childproof your home that will keep your family safe.

Door knob covers

Using door knob and door handle covers will prevent kids from entering areas and rooms with possible risk or danger.

Cabinets and Drawers safety latches

Installing safety locks or latches on cabinets and drawers especially in the kitchen can help prevent access to sharp objects, household cleaners and medicines.


A playpen is a form of childproofing. It will allow you less child supervision as it can restrict your child’s movement while playing or bottle feeding.

Corner and edge bumpers

Put corner and edge bumpers on furniture like side tables, center table and dining table to protect against injury. Moreover. Place furniture away from windows so children will not be able to climb onto window sills. Be wary of looped cords of your window blinds as it can be a cause of strangulation.

Childproof stairs and fireplace

As much as possible put a fireplace hearth. Use safety gates that kids cannot easily dislodge at the bottom and top of stairs to prevent falls. You may also use safety gates in the doorways of rooms like the bathroom to prevent them from entering.

Use outlet protectors

To prevent electrocution, cover electrical outlets with safety caps or outlet protectors. Likewise, make sure to always unplug appliances when not in use. Children always have the tendency to stick or put something into holes they can see.

Keep harmful items

Make sure harmful items are out of sight and out of reach. Place cleaning products such as bleach, detergents, toilet bowl cleaners in a locked cabinet. So as with insecticides, medicines, and personal hygiene products. Keys and small objects like coins, pins, or screws must be placed in a higher place where kids can’t reach.


Planting has become a hobby by most homeowners, nowadays. Be careful on selecting the plants that you will place inside your home as certain houseplants can be toxic and poisonous.
