How to design the perfect nursery

Designing the nursery can be one of the most exciting parts of any pregnancy, and there’s nothing better than seeing it ready and waiting for the new arrival. So just how can you design the room to suit? Well, here are just a few tips that any expectant parents should bear in mind:

• Choose a simple design scheme. Simplicity should be at the heart of any nursery design scheme with soft, delicate colours being the order of the day, ensuring it doesn’t feel overpowering whilst letting it be easily updated later down the line. Colour can be added with the help of wall stickers—they can quickly be peeled off so you can redecorate with ease.

• Layout is key. The layout of the nursery will be incredibly important. It’s vital that it looks good but you need to make sure it feels cosy too (newborns need to have a space that’s cosy rather than stark and overpowering), and of course it needs to be practical for your needs.

• Choose furniture wisely. There’s more to choosing nursery furniture than meets the eye—not only do you need to make sure you’re getting items that you adore, but they need to be practical (remember the importance of storage) and, ideally, adaptable (e.g. a chest of drawers that can be topped with a mat to make a changing table, or a two-in-one cot bed that can be changed as the baby grows).

• Don’t forget the details. It’s often the smaller touches that can really bring a nursery together, with things like snow globes, toy boxes and music boxes being ideal. Don’t forget the lighting either—again, it’s all about being soft and soothing with table lamps, dimmer switches and nightlights being ideal—and these little touches can also make great baby gift ideas.

These are just a few tips to help create the perfect nursery, and with a combination of the right design scheme, layout, furniture and baby gift ideas (snow globes, lighting etc.) you’ll have a nursery your little one will adore.
