With all the options and nursery design trends available, a baby’s nursery no longer has to be a traditional, pastel-colored affair. If you love modern design, we’ve compiled a collection of baby nursery ideas that are cool enough for baby to love and design-conscious adults to appreciate, too.
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.”
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?
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.
