Home decor on a budget
Since in the modern world, the living room is usually where the family spends most of its time for watching TV, enjoying video games, eating, playing or sleeping, special attention needs to be paid to the types of upholstery and fabrics you choose for the furniture, rugs, pillows, carpeting, curtains, etc. If you have toddlers or pets, you should choose properly protected fabrics for all of these pieces of furniture. This will keep them looking good, free of stains and dirt, and will make them much easier to maintain in the long run.
How to choose upholstery when you have kids or pets
A majority of parents will choose to use up their old furniture until their children grow old enough to be able to be trusted with new and more delicate upholstered furniture, rugs, carpets and other garments. This could be a wise choice, but it all depends on your budget and your personal preferences as well. Since furniture is a big investment (in fact it is one of the biggest three investments for a standard household), it is wise to think about using your old furniture or buying second hand or other budget furniture until your children grow up.
How to keep the upholstery clean when you have kids or pets
Fortunately, more and more furniture and fabrics manufacturers are working on designing and producing more durable and higher performance upholstery, which are not only going to withstand the test of toddlers spilling things on them and pets clawing on them but are also affordable and have beautiful colours and designs.

Ask your furniture store for such fabrics, and they will surely point out some of the modern options which are made and treated for longer durability, stain resistance, fade, and UV resistance as well as odour resistance and impregnated against spills.
