How to design your baby nursery

by | Apr 1, 2022

Designing your baby nursery is such an exciting milestone for your parenting journey, creating mood board, swatching coloured paints on walls and building your shopping list. There’s lots to organise but it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Read on in this blog post to learn some simple tips to how to design your baby nursery. 

1. What’s your baby nursery style?

The first question you’ll want to ask yourself is, what is your style? Decide on whether you want a boy or girl themed nursery design or a gender-neutral design, as this will influence the items you purchase. Once you know your general aesthetic, you can search on Pinterest, Instagram or any sites to get your nursery inspiration.

2. Consider practicalities like size, safety and functionality

Consider how large or small your baby’s nursery is. The size of your nursery will help determine the furniture you’ll need and whether you need compact baby furniture, and the amount of furniture you may like and set a floor plan for the design.

3. How much should I spend?

Set a budget for your nursery and allocate how much you’d like to spend on furniture, décor and painting or carpeting the room.

4. Choose your baby cot, bassinet, changing table and nursing chair

5. Paint your nursery or apply wallpaper

Considering your baby’s nursery theme, choose a colour or wallpaper. Ensure you use non-toxic paints and allow plenty of time for your nursery to air out before your baby arrives.
