Welcoming a baby is a special and joyous occasion, and nursery room preparation should be an exciting task. We’ve collected five tips to help make your nursery room a welcoming space for your new bundle of joy.
1.) Yellow isn’t the only neutral
If you’re waiting to find out the gender of your little one, but still excited to decorate, there are a lot of new gender-neutral styles. Consider calming soft browns or soothing grays with complementary pastels.
2.) Prevent toys from taking over
According to Parenting.com, too many toys can be overwhelming and distracting for babies and toddlers. Instead, stick with a few staples like soft crinkly toys, teethers, rattles or stuffed animals, and store the rest in soft fabric drawers to retrieve as they grow.
3.) Keep the necessities within arms reach
Make late night feedings easier by having everything you need right at your fingertips. Stock organizers by the crib or changing table with back-up linens, diapers, pacifiers and more.
4.) Create a room (and closet) that can grow with them
When designing the nursery, keep in mind that your little one will grow in the blink of an eye. Install a closet system like ShelfTrack with accessories and shelving that can be adjusted to fit your child’s growing storage needs.
5.) Don’t forget to decorate!
You will probably spend as much time in the nursery room as the baby, so why not fill it with decorations you adore too?
Make a tranquil, relaxing space like blogger FOXY OXIE with natural light and stylish accents. Or include something meaningful, such as framed family photos or a precious heirloom.
