Tips for designing your nursery

Posted in Style Tips

So you’re pregnant! And you have an exciting 9 months to plan everything! The nursery is just one of many priorities, but with some simple tips it’s easy to get it right. Read on to find out how to make your nursery the perfect sanctuary for you and your baby.

Nursery location and features

Ideally you want the nursery to be in a quiet location close to your bedroom so you don’t have to walk a long way in the middle of the night. Ensure that the room’s temperature can be regulated easily by installing any heating or cooling you may require, and choosing a room with a good window. The lighting is also important, and needs to be able to be controlled simply with thick curtains and good, bright lights. A dimmer switch is also a great addition to help control the light level.

Style

It’s still part of your home so tie the room in with the rest of the house. You want to include your own personality and style into the room just like every other part of the house! Choose some key pieces of furniture that are beautiful and practical, then work around them when planning your colour scheme.

Future proof the room

You don’t want to have to completely redecorate the room every time your child gets sick of it. Make practical choices about the décor so that it can easily be changed in the future. For example, choose cute wall stickers instead of baby wallpaper and add colourful rugs instead of permanent carpet.

Child proof the room

Ensure that the room is safe for a baby. This includes having a new, safety compliant cot, covered power outlets, no long hanging curtain or blind cords and the ability to pack away toys from the floor. See our child proofing article for more tips about this.
