A nursery is a very special place – it’s where you’ll nurture and watch your little one grow! If you’re expecting a new addition to your family, plan your nursery with comfort and functionality in mind. A successful design will allow your baby to be soothed, sleep, play, and be mentally stimulated. And, remember this room needs to please adults, too. Your baby may not remember the stylish baby cot, rocking chair or wall mural, but they will remember the feeling of love and security that comes from being in a nursery you both enjoy. To make your transition into parenthood more easy, browse the photos on Houzz for nursery ideas, including baby furniture, storage solutions, and decor.
What are some baby room essentials?
A baby cot and changing table are must-have furniture items, while helpful additions include a rocking chair and bouncer. Position a mobile above the cot to promote visual stimulation and brain development. Dark window shades or blackout nursery curtains are also essential for baby’s sleep. Whether it’s a wardrobe, dresser or boxes, don’t forget to include plenty of storage for little clothes, linen, diapers and toys.
How do I decorate a nursery?
When decorating a nursery, pick a theme that will endure at least five years. Newborn themes are tempting, but those early months fly very quickly and will quickly need to be updated. Create a calming effect with neutral walls and inject a playful tone with a colourful accent wall, wall art or patterned curtains. Don’t forget soft lighting for when you’re changing nappies or feeding in the middle of the night. Once baby starts to crawl, you may want to throw down a soft floor rug.
