Preparing the nursery for your new arrival can be exciting and nerve wracking. It’s understandable that you want it to be the perfect environment for your baby to grow in. And with these design tips you can create a beautiful and tranquil space that’s great for both you and your newborn.
Give your nursery a personalized touch with a fresh coat of baby safe paint. You can also get a shade matched in VOC-free paint to eliminate fumes. When selecting a hue, you don’t have to go with the classic blue or pink tones, there are no rules on what you can paint the room. Yellow, greens, purples and neutral tones are popular choices when it comes to nurseries.
Alongside your painted walls, you can add different colour wall trim to add more colour and make the room more fun. Mid-level wall trim can also let you split the colours. By placing the lighter colour on the top half you can visually heighten the ceiling and open up the room.
Before your newborn enters the world, don’t forget to put the crib together and set up the furniture in the nursery. A change table and rocking chair are also key pieces of furniture to use with your baby.
Consider adding new lighting to the nursery. Soft lighting helps prevent over-stimulation and helps the baby feel more comfortable. Plus, a dimmer switch can allow you to switch between diaper changes and sleep time without alerting or disrupting the baby.
Blackout Curtains and Blinds
Darkness during nap time is vital for sleep. If your blinds don’t block out enough light your baby may not be able to get the proper rest. Installing blackout blinds or curtains is the perfect way to obtain the optimal level of darkness for your tired baby.
One way to make your life easier once your new arrival is at home, is to add in a closet organizer in the nursery. This can help you have everything you need all in one place – diapers, toys, cleaning wipes, blankets, and clothing.
