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.
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.
Adults tend to spend time in baby’s nursery getting baby to sleep or watching over baby. Incorporate comfortable seating like a sofa or a daybed that encourages nap time for mom and dad, too. It’s incredible how many things a small baby needs. Create a combination of easy storage, like cabinets, baskets and drawers where clutter can be easily stored, with beautiful, modern open storage like a bookcase wall to display your baby’s favorite keepsakes.
