Decorating a nursery is always very special because you are about to welcome a new and wonderful life into the house. This space should therefore be soothing, interesting, stylish, and comfortable for your little one and you; after all you both will be spending a lot of time in this room. Here’s a guide to what you need to know while putting together a happy place for your baby.
Kids Room Design:
Consider putting the crib close to the entrance so that you don’t have to walk around things or risk tripping over something when you come to watch over your baby in the middle of the night. Avoid putting the crib right next to the window. Never place a crib near anything that dangles, like a curtain or blind trimmings, as the baby can tangle itself in these.
- Baby Crib: The crib should be the focal point of your baby nursery. You should invest some time and choose its Shape, finish and durability wisely. Make sure the crib does not have any sharp edges or corners.
- Baby Bedding: Your baby deserves a healthy environment. Look for bedding that’s soft and 100% cotton that has been produced without chemical pesticides, to keep baby’s sensitive skin protected. It’s important that you read up on SIDS before you decide upon the pillows and bedding for your baby.
- Changing Table: You can keep the changing table close to the crib. When the baby has wet accidents, you don’t want to carry the baby across the room so be sure you have all the essentials close at hand.
- Consider using nursery wall decals with colors that are calming and nurturing. This could also be influenced by your nursery theme. Anything goes, from flowers to butterflies, or something more modern, such as blocks or stripes. You should also consider using washable paint, so that it is easy to clean if the baby tries honing its artistic skills on them.
- Babies spend a lot of their first two years on the floor- crawling, playing, and falling. Wooden flooring is warm and appealing, but one needs to ensure it is splinter-free. Wall-to-wall carpeting in the nursery is a good idea, even though cleaning and maintaining it can be a challenge. Choose a very low pile, a loop carpet, or commercial-grade carpet which is easier to vacuum and keep dust free. Instead of going for a wall to wall carpet, you could also cover some parts of the nursery with rugs.
- You may choose to use socket covers or modern sockets that have built-in automatic shutters to stop children sticking their fingers or other objects into them.
- Choose curtains and blinds without cords. If you do have cords, tie them high up and out of your child’s reach. Always open windows from the top and fit them with locks to prevent your child from opening them from the bottom. Ensure all your kids furniture is placed away from the windows as your child may be tempted to climb onto them.
- Young children often end up hurting their fingers between slamming doors. Ensure all your doors have door slam stoppers to protect your child’s fingers.
Tips for Kids Furniture:
- Use stable furniture that won’t topple over in your child’s nursery. Remember to close drawers to prevent your child from bumping her head or trapping her fingers. Put latches on any lower drawers to prevent your baby to open them. Attach protector cushions to furniture corners so that your child doesn’t hurt himself.
Most of the furniture you install in this room should have storage space to store toys and books. Toy storage should always be covered with a lid so that the toys don’t gather dust, as babies tend to put toys in the mouth very often.
Keeping these points in mind, we really hope you enjoy setting up your nursery and welcome the little one.
