Here’s our easy “how-to” PREGEEZ guide, listing exactly what you need to know when putting together your new baby’s nursery.
Because you’re going to be spending A LOT of time in this room, the most important thing you can do in creating this space, is to design a nursery that makes you smile, relax and enjoy your time spent there.
We understand the decisions that come hand-in-hand with having a baby and raising a precious, tiny human life are endless and can quite frankly be very daunting but this one element of preparation can be, dare we say, quite easy, and actually even fun.
Read on to discover what nursery ideas below are required to make the perfect little haven…
1. The Cot
The cot should be your investment piece in the room. You may be thinking this is a temporary item and not worth the expense, but many kids sleep in their cots for three or more years and can be converted into a toddler bed. Also, if you’re planning to have more children, a sturdy cot can last through several kiddos.
2. The Bedding
The baby bedding and cot will combine to be the showpiece of your nursery. This is a great place to have fun and pull in your own style. It’s also a great place to incorporate a theme or build a color palette for the space.
3. The Compactum
There’s no way around it… With babies come dirty nappies. And, really, the only way to make this experience as pleasant as possible is to be sure you have all the essentials close at hand, which is where your compactum comes in handy.
First and foremost, you’ll need somewhere to actually change your baby. You have two options here, a freestanding changing table or a changing top that can be added on top of a dresser. Either will work, it’s really all about space.
4. The Nursery Chair
This may well be the most important purchase in your nursery, a comfortable place to sit. You’ll sit here to rock your baby to sleep, feed her, read to her, laugh with her, cuddle with her, maybe even share a good cry at 4am with her. In short, it’ll be a place of a lot of parent-baby bonding. So, choose your rocking chair wisely.
5. Storage, lots and lots of storage
You may have noticed that the tiniest people need the most stuff. Toys, nappies, books, clothes, gear, it all needs to go somewhere. Choose storage that fits your needs today and tomorrow. Though it seems like it, your baby won’t be in nappies forever, so be sure that basket you buy for nappies can hold something else when you’re done with that phase.
Now that you have most of the functional pieces of your nursery, you can get to work really decorating the space. The rug is a great place to start. It can add a lot of personality to the space. Curtains are a very important part of the nursery design, since you’ll likely want your baby to sleep a bit in the middle of the day.
When it comes to nursery decor, the only rule to follow is that there aren’t really rules. If you fill your space with things that make you happy, the result will be beautiful and will make you happy.
