Baby Nursery Design in Twelve Easy Steps
Establishing a kindergarten can be a somewhat daunting prospect, especially if you are a first-time mother. There are so many decisions to be made, so little time. You need to relax. Take a deep breath. Creating a nursery can be fun if you take it one step at a time…
Step 1: Baby’s safety is your first concern. Be sure to keep this in mind throughout the kindergarten design process.
Step 2: Decide on the style of the room. This choice will affect the choice of furniture, theme, and color scheme of your nursery.
Step 3: Choose a cot The cot will be the focal point of your nursery. Take your time and choose carefully. Shape, style, finish, and durability are some of the factors you should consider.
Step 4: Find crib furniture to complement your crib The most important pieces of furniture are: a changing table, rocking chair or glider, a bedside table or table, and a hanging basket.
Step 5: How will you provide the night light in the child’s room? A twilight switch, a wall light, a chandelier, or a night light are some of your options.
Step 6: Choose the floor covering for your children’s room. Should it match the rest of your house? Do you or your spouse have a history of allergies? The baby may also be susceptible. Keep this in mind when you make your choice.
Step 7: Decide if you want to decorate with a child’s theme or not. From jeans to flowers, pirates to butterflies, anything is possible. Or something more modern, like blocks or stripes.
Step 8: Create a color scheme. This will be influenced by your nursery’s theme if you have chosen one. If not, be guided by the room style you chose in step 2. For example, soft cakes will work with Cottage, but burnt orange, creams, and browns are a better idea for modern people.
Step 9: Decorate the children’s room Now that the practical stuff is out of the way, move on to the really fun part. Choose the color, wallpaper, mural, pictures, and bedding. Buy things, sew things, paste things. Make the room come alive and move around your furniture.
Step 10: Hang the curtains for the children’s room. Add a blind if you want your baby to sleep well.
Step 11: Go shopping. It’s time for that big nursery shopping spree you’ve been waiting for.
What’s on your shopping list?
* The baby room equipment. For example, a breathing monitor.
* Stuff for the nursery. For example, diapers and little baby shoes.
* The gifts that make the baby happy. For example, a crib mobile and a baby gym.
* Cool baby clothes. For example, a stroller and a diaper bag.
Step 12: Finally, put away all the little baby things. Sit back, relax, and wait for the baby to come and change your life forever.
