Select modular furniture that can be used beyond the first year. Many crib styles nowadays convert into children’s beds, while changing tables are often a regular dresser with a detachable dressing table top. And don’t forget to add fun elements to a nursery like a tent or animal rocking horse that baby can use as he/she grows into a toddler.
When selecting a crib, there are many new and modern designs to choose from. Try something modern or different, like an oval crib. Consider using a crib that converts into baby’s first bed when a crib is outgrown. And because the crib is the most used item in a nursery, order it ahead of time. Delays happen, cribs get damaged during the delivery process and you want to allow yourself the time required for any unexpected delays.
Good news for modern design lovers, soft pastels are not the best nursery choice. According to parenting guru Dr. Sears: “The best way you as a parent can stimulate baby’s vision is using black and white stripes or light and dark contrasting colors. So what about those nice soft pastels that used to be so popular in baby toys and nurseries? While these may look pretty to you, they do nothing visually for your baby. Research has proven that black and white contrasts register powerfully on baby’s retina and send the strongest visual signals to baby’s brain. Stronger signals mean more brain growth and faster visual development.”
If your baby is boy or girl, go with timeless and modern grey as your nursery’s main color. Grey works with any bold accent shade making it modern but classic. And for the most visual bang, try layering different grey shades and patterns.
