Welcoming a newborn into your life is perhaps one of the most joyful events that you’ll ever come across. As you wait for your little one’s arrival, you might have been preparing their nursery and all the things they may need.
Your baby’s nursery should be a haven for your little one. After all, this place is where they will sleep, rest, and play, which is why it’s important that you create a dreamy yet relaxing space that they’ll love to grow into over the years. Learn how with this article.
Start with Choosing a Theme
It can be challenging to know where to start when turning a room into a nursery. One of the best ways you can jumpstart your planning is by choosing a nursery theme. From classic forest or woodland animals, safari, or even cars or sunshine, there are lots of themes you can choose from.
While a touch of whimsy can never go wrong, there might be some parents who want the nursery to grow with their baby over time, which is why a more neutral-toned may be more appealing. If this is the case, fret not. There are still tons of options to start with, such as a modern farmhouse or even a modern coastal style.
After you’ve picked a theme to go with, you can proceed with choosing patterns, colors, and even furniture that fits into this particular theme.
Don’t Forget the Necessities
It’s easy to get carried away with all the things you want to place in the nursery. To avoid being overwhelmed by how to turn your dream nursery into a reality, start with the essentials and work your way from there.
Of course, when it comes to sleeping and resting, a crib or bassinet, as well as a mattress, are non-negotiables. For feeding sessions, having an armchair or even a rocking chair will do a world of good, especially as this gives you the best of both worlds when feeding as you’ll get to snuggle as well.
A dresser or changing table, complete with a changing pad is also essential. This helps store all the things you need for diaper changes, from diapers to creams. You might also want to put baskets for your little one’s toys while you’re at it to keep the room free from clutter.
Put Your Personal Touches
Complete your baby’s nursery with personal touches. It’s the little details that will tie in the whole nursery and make it feel like home and even achieve the vision you have always wanted.
Some details you may want to include in the nursery include family photos, artwork that’s related to the theme of your choice, trinkets, and the like. Books that you want to read to them as well as a mural or wall art will lend more visual interest to the room.
Consider Getting a Window Replacement
If you live in an older home, chances are you’ll be greeted with drafty windows. While this might not be a bother for you, you don’t want your precious baby catching a cold from the drafts. Given this, a window replacement might be in order.
A window replacement can give your baby’s nursery a new lease on life. What’s more, this can help reduce noise pollution, giving your little one the unhampered rest they need to grow healthy and happy. Not to mention, this will also improve the energy efficiency level of the room and home overall.
The Bottom Line
Designing a nursery is a fun and exciting project to take on, especially when you make it something special. As expectant parents, you can create a nursery that’s unique and dreamy with the help of these tips.
