When you have your first child, people feel compelled to share some advice based on their experience with such a wonderful and tricky task.
Some suggestions are very useful, some less, some are given by people who have different ideas and priorities.
For instance, nobody ever warned me that kids take up more space than you imagine. It sounds obvious but it is something you can’t understand until you have kids. I have had a hippy approach to kids stuff, I have always thought you don’t need much-you can easily live without a homegenizer or a nappy bin– still when they grow, they become little people with their own wardrobes, books, toys, swimming gear. And they grow up fast.
Also nobody ever mentioned the fact that they are dirty little creatures who like to draw on walls and cast finger prints on every white surface within reach!
If I had known that I would have definitely gone for a half painted wall like the ones pictured in the photos.
So if you are expecting your first child or if, for instance, you have a table next to the walls like in some of the examples picture above, consider picking one of these bi-colored solutions.
