The New Year brings with it wonderful new baby furniture trends and to enjoy and try out in 2017, with some completely new ideas to try, while other elements from 2016 continue to go strong.
Decorating your little one's room is completely up to you, and you may choose not to be swayed by the current trends that are being used across nurseries worldwide, but it is interesting to see what baby furniture trends are popular at the moment.
If you are looking to update your baby furniture décor or the baby room in general, the latest trends are certainly a great point of reference.
With that in mind, here are a few trends for 2017 that are worth considering as far as your baby furniture needs go:
Pastel Colours For The Win
Pastel colours made a loud entrance to the interior design scene in recent times, and this has also been true in baby nurseries. In 2017, light pastel hues are trendy, with pale turquoise, mint green, light grey, beige, and muted olive added to the mix. Many people enjoy adding vibrant pops of colour such as orange, dark green, gold, and wine as accents in their baby rooms. Liven up your space with a combination of pastel and darker colours.
Modern and convertible cribs or cots are the must have baby furniture pieces for 2017, as they will grow with your little one. Convertible baby furniture is made with more than one purpose in mind. For example, the convertible crib can conveniently transform from a baby crib, to a toddler bed, to a daybed, and even into a full size bed in some cases. This is very cost effective for parents, as it is effectively taking care of the sleeping needs of your little one for many years to come, instead of having to invest in a variety of beds or furniture options as your child grows up.
Open Floor Space
In order to not make a room look cramped, it is on trend to keep the baby furniture positioned in a way that opens up central floor space in the nursery. Make sure that the main pieces of baby furniture such as the cot, compactum and feeding chair are the central focus, with all other elements used to compliment them, but keep them backed against wall space in order to accentuate the open floor space in the middle.
As a parent, you want to encourage your children at every moment, and why not begin at home in his or her own room. Motivational quotes and mantras continue to be popular, and this trend is visible in many baby rooms through nursery accessories that bear motivational quotes that can be placed on walls or sewn onto cushions. An example of this is a hand painted canvass with a favourite saying written on it such as, "Reach for the stars!"
However you chose to celebrate the end of 2016, we hope that you will consider the wonderful baby furniture and nursery accessory options available at Dream Furniture in 2017! We wish you and yours a year filled with health, love, laughter and the pitter-patter of tiny feet.
