When embarking on the journey of building a new home, safety is a paramount concern, especially for families with young children. At Sortino Properties, we believe that a home should be a sanctuary where every member, no matter how small, feels safe and nurtured. Integrating child safety features from the ground up in a new home build not only secures a protected environment but also embeds peace of mind into the very foundation of your family’s future. Let’s explore how to weave safety seamlessly into the fabric of your new home, ensuring it’s a place where children can explore, learn, and grow with confidence.

Crafting Safety into Every Aspect of Your Home

Building a new home presents a unique opportunity to incorporate child safety into the design and functionality of each space. From the layout to the finishing touches, every element can contribute to creating a secure environment. Here are essential considerations for making your new home child-friendly:

Open Floor Plans with Visibility: Design living areas with clear sightlines, allowing you to keep an eye on children while attending to daily tasks.

Rounded Corners: Opt for rounded corners on walls, countertops, and furniture to minimize the risk of injury from sharp edges.

Non-Toxic Materials: Choose non-toxic, low-VOC paints and materials to ensure better indoor air quality for your family’s health.

Child-Safe Windows: Install windows with child safety locks and consider placing windows out of reach or ensuring they don’t open wide enough for a child to fall through.

Electrical Safety: Plan for tamper-resistant (TR) electrical outlets throughout the house to prevent accidental shocks.

Secure Stairways: Design stairways with safety in mind, incorporating sturdy handrails, adequate lighting, and gates at the top and bottom for when children are young.

Fenced Outdoor Areas: Ensure outdoor play areas are fenced and safe from potential hazards like pools, driveways, or roads.

Durable, Easy-to-Clean Surfaces: Select surfaces and finishes that are not only durable but also easy to clean, supporting a hygienic environment.
