Having a baby is already hard work. Finding baby-proofing items that won’t ruin the aesthetic of your home shouldn’t have to be. Of course, safety is the number one priority when it comes to little ones—but if there are stylish child proofing products out there, why not equip your home with them instead of the traditional (read: eyesore) options?

Here are some of the most “non-ugly” products for baby proofing your home, so you don’t have to compromise style for safety.

Silicone Corner Bumpers

Bink’s motto is “babyproofing made modern.” (An entire line of baby safety products created with your home in mind? We’re sold!) These soft silicone corner bumpers are designed to blend in with the design of your coffee table—or any other furniture with sharp corners—in gray, black, or white.

Cord Safety Wraps

Some parents may trade in their blinds for curtains or cordless options for safety reasons, but you can keep yours with this subtle cord safety wrap.

3 / 12
Mesh and Steel Baby Gate

It’s difficult to find a baby gate that matches the aesthetic of your home, but this mesh and steel option is a contender for modern spaces.

Finger Pinch Guard

If you have to have a pinch guard on your door, may as well choose a tasteful, neutral option like this one.

Replace your outlet plates with these self-closing outlet covers for a great-looking (and automatic!) baby proofing solution. As soon as the plug is removed from the outlet, a piece of the cover slides over to cover the holes and protect little ones from electrical hazards. And you won’t even know it’s there!

Door Knobs That Match Your Hardware

Match the finish of your door handle with any one of these door knob safety covers, which come in bronze, silver, and gold.

7 / 12
Ultra-Soft Spout Cover

While maybe not subtle, this one is a decidedly cute way to protect your child’s head from the faucet. We’re all for it.

8 / 12
Clear Stove Knob Covers

Not only do these clear knob covers fit most knobs; they’re also clear, so they’ll match most kitchens.

9 / 12
Hidden Magnetic Cabinet Locks

Keeping your kids from opening cabinets they shouldn’t be in (to prevent them from getting into the under-the-sink cleaning products or trash) is as easy as installing these magnetic locks. They stay totally hidden from view inside the cabinet, and are unlocked with a magnetic tool you can stash high up in the kitchen or bathroom.

10 / 12
Furniture Safety Straps

This one doesn’t really have to be cute, since it’s behind a TV, but it definitely seems safe.

11 / 12
Minimalist Soft Baby Gate

Another super-simple gate option: You’ll appreciate the minimalist design and the customization option for wider doorways.

Clear Outlet Covers

You can’t go wrong with an outlet cover you don’t even realize is there!
