4 Nursery Design Tips
Sep 15, 2017 // Interior Design //

At some point during your pregnancy, you are going to want to design your baby’s nursery. This is certainly an exciting time in your life and many will want to do everything they possibly can to get ready for the new addition to the family. If this is your first child, however, it may sometimes be hard to know exactly what you want—people with at least one other child have a better chance of identifying their needs based on experience. To help calm your nerves and get you started, here are some key nursery design tips to consider:

Mimic The Night

Your baby’s nursery should always be able to mimic nighttime, even during the middle of the day. This is because many studies indicate the darkness helps your baby to sleep. Some parents even swear their children will fight with everything they have to stay awake if they know its bright outside.

Thus, look at things like blackout curtains or blinds you can draw for your nursery design. These help to immerse the room in darkness during the day. You can, of course, add some light with a small nightlight if you so desire, but make sure natural light does not seep into the room.

Clear The Way

You will need to enter the nursery during the night many times. This makes it essential to ensure the floor is clear, chairs are against the wall, et cetera. You need an unobstructed path at all times to avoid tripping. This is particularly important if you are carrying your baby—you do not want to drop them!

Within Reach

What do you need when you are changing your baby? Make a list! Ensure everything on this list is within arm’s reach of the changing table in your nursery design. You need to be able to grab these items without stretching while you are trying to change your baby’s diaper. Though some changing tables will have storage in them, not all will. If this is the case for you, pick out the storage pieces specifically to fit around the changing table closely and without obstruction.
