While it might be tempting to style your nursery with bright colors, you might want to consider the fact that this is usually a high-traffic area that’s bound to get messy and the last thing you need is to worry about that white carpet getting stained.
Make sure to only buy items that are made from durable and washable materials. You can never go wrong with hardwood floors covered with a high-quality rug, as well as furniture that are easy to clean.
Crib and Daybed
A daybed is a great addition to a baby nursery because it provides you with extra sleeping space.
You’ll definitely need it for those late-night and early morning feeds as well as if your baby comes down with colic and other common infant maladies.
The daybed can also be utilized by older children when visiting.
Research shows that newborn babies can only see a small color spectrum that includes grey, black, and white only.
Over time, they start developing a proficiency for seeing other colors, starting with red, which is why it’s not recommended to use it in a nursery.
Instead, opt for soft hues like light pink, green, and blue, which are attractive colors that start to develop around the same time and haven’t been shown to cause any confusion.
Wallpaper is by far the easiest way to spruce up your baby’s room and there are so many options to choose from.
This includes bright, youthful colors like yellow, orange and blue, to stripe and damask patterns or beautiful floral prints.
You can literally create any look you want with wallpaper granted you complement it with the right furniture and decor elements.
Children love having things to play with and you can provide them with all the stimulation they need when you’re not around by decorating their nursery with framed illustrated pictures or other creative art such as wall painting.
You could also add a bookshelf in there so you have plenty of options to choose from for bedtime reading.
Help your baby to fall asleep faster by incorporating a dimmer light fixture or lamp that’ll help them to tell the difference between daytime and night time while keeping your energy bill in check.
Oversized stripes are a lot of fun and make for a versatile room. You can add this idea to the rug, like on the picture above, or go for other decorative elements such as pillows, dresser, or even to the walls with painting or wallpaper.
You’ll want to optimize the storage in your baby’s nursery so that it’s easier to navigate the space.
You could add an extra shelf next to the changing table or crib where you can keep powders, wipes, and lotions, as well as baby’s stuffed animals and toys. You will need plenty of storage for toys, clothing and books later on, so don’t be afraid to add more storage options to the space.
You should also prioritize ergonomic design when planning your baby nursery ideas.
For instance, you should have plenty of open storage close to the changing table, while dry diapers should be in easy reach in a nearby drawer or basket so they’re easy to access when you need them.
Your little one isn’t only your pride and joy but a little prince or princess. So, why not add a regal element to their room with an enlarged monogram of their initials on the wall? It’s definitely a great personal touch.
