Decorating for autism, it's a real thing, and it's a minimalist approach to be sure.

  • Buy things that clean easily.
  • Wall units or bookshelves should bolted to the wall so they don't topple when climbed.
  • Buy solid, sturdy furniture that can withstand kids standing on it.
  • Store your irreplaceable antiques or glass tables and cabinets.
  • Buy leather couches.
  • Have less knick knacks out.
  • Flatscreen TVs should be mounted to the wall so the don't get tipped over.
  • Use only mercury-free light bulbs in case they get broken. CFL lights require special efforts to clean them up.
  • Using No-VOC paints, choose soothing blues and greens for kid's rooms. Close off wood burning fireplaces or get an insert.
  • Hardwood or tile floors are the easiest to keep clean.
  • Be mindful of cords to blinds and shades.
