From the perfect crib to ceiling fans, get ready for baby’s arrival with a chic and safe baby nursery you won’t mind spending hours in.
There are many things to consider when decorating a baby nursery. Many expecting parents start thinking about colors and themes for the room, and while you want it to look aesthetically pleasing, it also needs to be practical and safe for the baby.
With all that there is to consider, designing a baby’s first room out in the world can be exciting and fulfilling. Not only will the baby be spending a lot of time here, but so will you as a parent, so it’s best to make it appealing and comfortable for you too. Here is some inspiration on how to decorate a baby nursery
Install A Crib Bumper
A baby crib bumper helps keep little ones from bumping onto the rigid crib walls or toys or any toys falling out. Opt for cushions that match the theme or color scheme of the room.
Choose A Focal Point
Many people choose to make the crib the room’s focal point, but you could opt for a feature wall, a ceiling fixture, or a painted dresser.
Choose An Interesting Crib
Go-to crib ideas are often white or wooden. While there’s nothing wrong with the timeless classics, if you want to add something different, look for an eye-catching crib design.
Create A Nursing Station
Create an area in the room where all the nursing necessities are conveniently accessible to you so that nursing time can go as seamlessly and peacefully as possible.
Prepare the Changing Table
Sometimes simple tasks like changing a diaper can turn into more than you had bargained for with babies. As such, ensure that the changing table has all that you’ll need during changing times. Think about how best to organize the area, so that dirty items don’t mix with the clean.
Think Of Reading Time
Consider installing a few shelves to keep books that you can read for baby. It’s a great way to spend precious time together and cultivate a reading culture.
Add Personal Touches
Make the room feel personal by adding family photographs, have the baby’s name on the door. These are just cute additions to have in a room.
Install a Ceiling Fan
Consider installing a ceiling fan. A 2008 study published in “The Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine” reported that sleeping under a ceiling fan can significantly reduce their risk of SIDS by 72 percent in infants.
Install A Growth Chart
One day they’re a peanut; next, they’re wearing eyeliner, and it all happens within the blink of an eye. Add a growth chart to the room to document their height and to add a cute kiddy feature in the room.
Keep The Future In Mind
Speaking of growth, it may be helpful to keep in mind that little ones grow into tweens and tweens. Keep in mind ways that the room can transform from a nursery into a child’s room once they reach the age.
