When creating a nursery that is practical, safe and will look great as baby grows, keep the following tips in mind: - Add a dimmer to lighting. It’s an easy project that will allow you to adjust the mood of the room as needed. - Select durable, washable fabrics and rugs that can be easily cleaned. - Select furniture pieces that can evolve from nursery to a teenager’s room. - Think about furniture placement and safety as baby starts getting mobile. Some good baby-proofing ideas include covering wall outlets, keeping the crib away from window treatments and cords and placing valuable items on higher shelves. - Focus on creating an uncluttered nursery with plenty of storage options that make cleanup while holding a baby easy. - Allow for plenty of floor space so baby can have floor playtime.
You know how important contrast and pattern are to baby, add impact where baby notices most – the ceiling. Babies love to be rocked to sleep. And adults don’t mind the soothing effect of rocking, either. Why not rock baby to sleep by using a hanging chair or cool, contemporary rocker?
You need to know what you’re searching for when it comes to a nursery: a perfectly balanced color palette or a joyful mix of materials and textures? Will your crib be placed in the middle of the room or will it rest under a dreamy canopy? From details like the choice of whether buying organic baby bedding to which baby boy or baby girl nursery curtains should you choose, everything can be designed by a talented interior designer to make sure what you want is also what you need.
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.
