We know that it can be a daunting task to plan a baby room and start from scratch in order to make it the perfect mini-living space for your little one, ensuring that all of the right baby furniture is present in order for it to be a functional and comfortable room for baby, which is why we enlisted the insights of a few interior decorators to help you.
A new baby nursery is often a room that was previously used as a store room, study or for another use in a home, which means that it needs to be reconsidered entirely for the purposes of a baby room. “The best way to do this is to give it a fresh look with a new paint job that suits the newborn, and key baby furniture elements that take the room forward as a new space with the ability to cater for the needs of the child and parents while not losing out in terms of style,” reveals Peter.
“The biggest needs of a new kid’s room are to sort a sleeping space, organise good places to store everything, create a comfortable area for play, and make a cozy spot that baby and parents can enjoy together. The extra challenge is to make those three areas good for now and for 6 months time, when kids can be running, playing and moving a lot more,” adds American interior decorator Emma.
With this in mind, the best place to start is the sleeping space, with a comfortable baby cot essential, and amattress that will cater to the little one’s heavy sleeping needs. In terms of functional storage, acompactum is the ultimate functional baby furniture piece, providing space for various items while acting as a changing table.
A beautiful baby-friendly rug can be a wonderful way of identifying a comforting play area for parents and baby within the nursery, adding style and a personal touch to the room, while other nursery accessoriescan be used to emphasise the play area and make it your own.
Another cozy area that baby, mom and dad can enjoy together is the place where they are fed in the baby room, and for this purpose a comfortable feeding chair is the most wonderful addition to the room, and a lovely piece of baby furniture that is sure to be enjoyed by all who spend time in the delightful new room.
