When designing a nursery, once you have the practical and safety considerations put to bed by choosing high quality nursery furniture that meets with safety standards, you can start on the fun part!
Designing your baby’s nursery is a chance for you to reconnect with your inner child. Consider making the nursery themed so that it is fun and engaging for a baby and young toddler. There are plenty of characters and ideas to choose from and you can really let your imagination take over. You may use a cuddly toy that has been given as a baby gift as a starting point and work from there.
If you’re struggling for inspiration then a place to start is to look at some of the themed nursery furniture that’s available. Winnie the Pooh for example is an age old classic and many furniture ranges will run with this theme. If you know the gender of your baby you might want to choose something less generic – perhaps a fairy theme for a little girl or Thomas the Tank Engine for a little boy.
Whatever you choose, go for fun engaging designs that will make your baby feel happy and stimulated in their nursery.
One of the downsides to character nursery furniture is its shelf life. Toddler’s tastes develop rapidly and they can quickly outgrow a nursery design before they have actually grown out of the furniture itself. To avoid this you may want to simply choose a character theme for the walls and soft furnishings that can be easily updated at a later date. Children do not stay young forever and can very quickly progress into more adult décor tastes so make the most of this time.
