Tips for preparing a baby’s room

Having a baby is a huge joy in your life, and preparing for that baby should be fun too. But often, it is scary and makes you feel like you cannot possibly ever be prepared. But one area you can make sure you are doing the right thing is in your baby’s room. Preparing it will make it feel like home for both you and your baby. And since you will likely spend a lot of sleepless nights in that room, it is important it feels comfortable and is practical for you. Here are some tips for preparing your baby’s room.

Practicality is king

You can have a nursery that looks beautiful and is very practical. One of the most important things to remember about your nursery is that you need to do everything you can to make the space work for you. Everything you could possibly need should be within reach of the changing table, according to Today. When your baby is on the table and you need a new outfit, you don’t want to have to walk across the room to a dresser. If you need to throw a diaper away, you don’t want to have to leave the room to find a trash. You will never want to leave your baby alone on the changing table, yet walking around with a naked baby to get what you need is more difficult than you can imagine. Keep everything within close reach.


While you may want to buy anything and everything for your new baby, remember that you are going to be walking around in the dark while holding the baby in the room fairly often. Keep pieces of furniture as simple as possible, and avoid cluttering the room with toys. It’s okay to have all the things you need in there, but make sure there is a place for them to get put away.


Your precious child will be crawling around the room and touching everything in sight. You should do everything you can to protect them. Put in outlet covers to keep their fingers from getting shocked, and baseboard heater covers can keep them from getting their fingers stick in the heaters. Whatever you need to do to prepare the room for your child to roam freely, make sure you do it.

Wall art

One of the best ways to personalize the baby’s room and make it feel like a place you want to spend time is to put up wall art. Nothing is worse than sitting alone in a room with a baby and looking at blank walls. Even if you aren’t looking at the art you put up regularly, it will still make you feel more comfortable and warm to have something in the room that represents your family.

Themes make all the difference

By picking a theme, it won’t feel like a mismatched mess in their room. It will feel like it all goes together even if everything wasn’t purchased from the same place. Airplanes, elephants, ABCs. Whatever it is, pick something you love and make it a theme for the room to help bring it all together.

Blackout curtains

It may not seem necessary now, but eventually, you’ll want those blackout curtains in place to keep your baby sleeping as long as possible. You’ll find those few extra minutes are more valuable than you can possibly imagine, and cute curtains really work to bring a room together.
