Tips for Designing a Nursery
Are you expecting a new addition to your family? Whether this is your first child or fifth, the anticipation of bringing home a new baby is always an exciting time. Follow these recommendations from the professional designers to ensure your baby comes home to a magical and functional nursery. The basics of nursery design apply regardless of your budget options or restraints.
Start with the basics. There are many cribs on the market today that convert to single beds. While this might mean spending a bit more up front, it’s certainly cheaper than purchasing a crib followed by the purchase of a single bed in a few short years. Bear in mind that most items for a nursery are needed for a very short period of time. Babies grow rapidly! A changing table and chest of drawers should be second on the list of furnishings for the nursey. Finally, invest in a comfortable leisure chair for the nursery. You’ll be spending many sleepless nights with the baby in this chair. Select one that can be enjoyed for years to come.
When searching for crib bedding and accessories for the nursey, consider taking advantage of the awesome deals offered by Groupon and explore the awesome selection of must have items for a nursery from Buy Buy Baby. From mobiles to diaper bags, the options are nearly unlimited. Consider investing in window coverings, either drapes or blinds, which are room darkening. You’ll appreciate being able to darken the nursery when it’s time for the baby’s afternoon naps. Many expecting mothers select themes for decorating the nursery. Plan on painting the room well in advance of the baby’s arrival to ensure all the paint fumes have time to dissipate. A baby’s lungs and respiratory system are still developing the first several months. Finally, consider adding a baby monitor and sound system to the nursery. You’ll appreciate hearing when your baby is awake, and your baby will be soothed by soft music from the sound system. Best of luck with your nursery and new baby!
