Stylish, with children

Three young boys plus a 2,000-square-foot bungalow might sound like it equals a design challenge, but for this Seattle family, it adds up to a home that’s stylish, livable, and friendly to kids and adults alike.

“We didn’t have any kids when we first bought here,” says Joe Schneider of the Arts and Crafts home he and his wife, Kim Clements, began renovating about eight years ago.

To accomodate their growing family, they turned a guest room into a combination sleeping alcove, library nook, and mudroom, and integrated a play corner into the dining room.
