When you're expecting, the entire world changes. You go into nesting mode, picking out the perfect furniture and covering every corner and outlet in the home with safety mechanisms. While some of this work can be tedious, most of its quite fun. When you're creating a nursery, you get the chance to have hands-on involvement with the room your new baby will become accustomed to in the coming years.
Creating your nursery should be a momentous occasion, not a stressful situation! Follow these five tips to help you get started.
1. Think About a Theme
Whether you're aiming for a Noah's Ark-type of motif, or simply focused on a particular color scheme, find a unifying theme you can use throughout the room. This will help create a put-together space that will allow you and baby to relax comfortably.
2. Pick Your Paint Last
You may be inclined to pick your paint first, as your walls are the canvas for the rest of your nursery's accessories, but it's best to steer clear of this temptation. Instead, choose your curtains, baby bed, and furniture before you even begin to think about your paint. It's much easier to pick wall colors after everything else is in order.
3. Build a Nursing Station
Breastfeeding can be unbearable if you don't have the proper atmosphere in place. A great nursing station will provide you with optimal comfort while you feed your newborn baby.
4. Embrace Creative Storage Ideas
It doesn't matter if you live in a 500-square-foot apartment or a five-bedroom home, your little one's needs are going to take up some space. The more creative you can get with your storage options, the more freely you'll be able to enjoy your place. Look for interesting ways to stow stuff away so your nursery stays clutter-free. When you're waking up at 3:00 am, you're going to be grateful for these space-saving ideas.
5. Add Black-Out Shades
Even the most air-conditioned home becomes susceptible to discomfort when the afternoon sun hits certain windows just right. If your baby's sleeping, you don't want harsh heat or excessive rays of light to interrupt the slumber. Polar Shades' Duo Shades are great for parents who want the best of both worlds, providing a bit of privacy if you still want some light to shine in, and darkening the entire room when a black-out effect is warranted.
