Decorating Your Baby’s Nursery

One of the biggest challenges when it comes to getting ready to meet your baby is the process of creating and decorating his or her nursery. Make sure you’re well prepared by knowing exactly what you need ahead of time, and you’ll find that the decorating process can be fun and exciting rather than stressful or overwhelming. Here are a few simple tips to help you stick to your budget, and come out with a beautiful nursery by the time your baby arrives.

 

Storage is key!

Storage space will be one of the most important aspects of any nursery. You’ll rack up a lot of general ‘stuff’ in the process of having a baby, and plenty of organised storage space will always come in handy.

 

Give yourself a space

If you’re planning on having the baby in the nursery from the early days, you’ll definitely need somewhere to sit comfortably while you nurse or feed the baby, especially at night. Invest in a comfortable rocker or chair that’s well stocked with things to keep you both calm.

 

Assess what you really need

Some people go a little overboard when it comes to baby shopping, so if you’re on a budget, ask around amongst friends and family and search online to find out what people really found useful, and what ended up being unnecessary clutter. This way, you won’t waste time and money filling the nursery with excess, but you’ll have the necessities to hand.

 

Get some inspiration

There are plenty of interior design catalogues and websites devoted to inspiring you in your home; utilise these to get a strong sense of what kind of look you’re aiming for in terms of furniture, colours and style.

 

Safety first

Before your baby arrives, make sure that everything in the nursery is safe. The cot should be free of loose pillows and comforters, pretty as these may look, and any painting should be done at least 8 weeks before your due date to ensure that fumes are long gone.
