Interior design tips for a beautiful nursery

Having your first child is one of the most exciting moments of your life. One of the things that first-time parents enjoy most is getting the nursery all ready to go. Though it’s easy to get carried away since you’re understandably anxious to get everything ready, it’s a good idea to take some time to really plan it out so you end up with a finished product you’re happy with. Here are some tips for designing a beautiful nursery.

Design a nursery that can grow and change along with your child

Your baby won’t be a baby forever and it would be a shame to spend so much time and money designing a nursery only to have to throw everything out when your little one outgrows it. Rather than just a traditional crib, purchase one that can convert a toddler bed. Rather than buy a changing table that can’t be used for anything else, buy a vintage dresser and fashion a changing table to be attached to the top. When you no longer need the changing table, remove the top part and you have a dresser that will serve your child throughout his/her growing up years. Purchase a gliding recliner rather than a recliner and ottoman combo since you’re more likely to get use out of the former in another room in your home down the road.

Design with yourself in mind

Sure the room is ultimately for your baby but you’ll be spending a lot of time in it too, especially in those early years so don’t forget to design with yourself in mind. Have a design that’s calming for you. It’s a good idea to have a nook where everything you might need is within arm’s reach. Near your glider, where you will feed and calm your baby, have a table with a lamp and any other items you might want there. For instance, you may want a few books to entertain yourself as your child falls asleep.

Add a rug

For a wall-to-wall carpeted nursery, a large area rug is a great addition since it can add some color to the otherwise bland carpeting. It’s also going to keep your carpets in better condition which is especially crucial since children have a knack for making messes.

Get creative

Most nurseries tend to conform to a certain standard. But just because it’s a room for a baby doesn’t mean it has to have muted colors and a simple design scheme. You can have bold colors and design elements to create a wow factor.

Make it gender neutral

A gender neutral nursery is a good idea for a couple of reasons. For one, ultrasounds have been known to deceive parents, technicians, and even doctors. Also, even if you’re set on having one child, you don’t know what the future may bring and it will be nice to have a nursery that doesn’t need to be overhauled if you have another child of the opposite gender later on.

Make it safe

Of course every room in your home will need to be baby-proofed but it starts with the nursery. For example, if you have a baseboard heating system, your child could burn him/herself or can wedge toys into the heating element creating a fire hazard. Baseboard radiator covers can make your heating system safer for your child.
