Looking for awesome nursery inspiration? Look no further.
Setting up a nursery for a new baby is really exciting. But it can also be really daunting. Where do you start? What do you need? Here are some handy hints on setting up the perfect nursery for your new arrival.
Choose a colour scheme.
Don’t think just because you’re due with a little lady you need to sign up for a pink paradise. Same goes for the boys. While you can absolutely commit to a gender colour scheme if you want to, there is nothing to say you can’t create the perfect room for a baby girl in blue hues. There are also some fantastic gender neutral options which you can jazz up later if you’re keeping bubs gender a surprise.
And don’t forget about wall paper, like this Vintage Wallpaper in Butter Yellow and Silver from Etsy:
Go for adaptability.
Go for a theme that will grow with your child.
While bunnies and lambs suited your newborn the day they came home, that baby will soon be a preschooler with more of a preference for Ninja Turtles. You can make it easy for yourself by keeping the basics pretty simple, like solid colours and plain furniture and accessorise with specifics. Find some fantastic murals online, which can be easily removed when your little bundle grows, and replaced with something more age appropriate. Bedding and cushions can change the look of a room completely and well priced framed prints will liven up the walls, like this one from Etsy:
Invest in a good feeding chair.
Choose something comfortable, because you're going to be spending a lot of time there! Whether you choose to bottle or breast feed, a chair with arms on it is going to be way more comfortable while you're holding baby.
Again, keep it plain and accessorise with coloured cushions and throws to complement the room. Whatever you do, make sure that chair is stain protected well before your due date.
