Designing A Nursery For A Newborn
Pregnancy is a whole new chapter in a woman’s life – one that she waits for with anticipation. Moms-to-be can’t wait to present their newborn to the world. Not only do they wish for a happy and safe delivery, but they know that the birth of a child is just the beginning of a life full of wonderment, love, and learning.
Decorating the nursery for a newborn plays an integral role during this period. After all, it is one task that can’t be rushed – it needs to offer comfort and peace, while being functional at the same time.
If the space is big enough, set a crib in the center of the room or away from a wall. It frees up space for balancing furniture and decor. Place personalized art or items closest to the area the baby spends the most time in; crib or changing table. It
Whether you opt for subdued or bold, colorful or solid, modern or traditional, the bedding creates the overall vibe of the room. Some nursery designers often choose the bedding first and then use those colors to determine walls, furniture, and other accessories. Use the colors of the bedding to narrow the color palette you will be working with.
Lighting enhances the ambience of any room. It is necessary that the nursery has sufficient light but not too much that it irritates the baby. It is worth investing in dimmers, especially for that middle of the night feeding in the nursery. There is something about a light that adds warmth and coziness to a room. With so many choices out there, you are sure to find something that fits your style.
Furniture pieces greatly contribute to the beauty and elegance of the room. You can go for a vintage look or choose modern, clean designs. Don’t buy too many pieces as it leads to overcrowding and becomes clutter. A crib, changing table/dresser, small accent/night table and a piece for clothing or storage are the basics.
Use wall decals to liven up the space – you can get innovative and artsy without messing up the walls. It could be a statement photo, scenery, message, etc. Whether you want to base your nursery on a theme or even mix and match, these ideas will help you get started on the right track. Have a blast decorating the room for your bundle of joy!
