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.
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.
