Nursery Design Ideas

There is something so exciting and special about designing a nursery space! It’s a fresh space, that a new human will occupy, giving it a whole new meaning. Whichever style you choose to deck your nursery out in, make sure above all that it is a space that makes you relax and is comfortable and practical for both you and your baby. After all, you will be spending a lot of time in the nursery! Whether your nursery is a combination of old and new or you are starting from scratch, there are a few very important things to consider when working on your nursery design. First and foremost, the crib! The crib should of course adhere to all safety protocols, but should also be an investment piece. This is where your baby will spend most of their time, and many cribs now a days convert into toddler, then big kid beds, so it’s a piece that can stay in your family for a long period of time.  There are options for furnishing your baby’s nursery, and ample opportunity to add personality and fun to it! You can opt for a traditional changing table, or add a changing pad to the top of your favorite style dresser. One thing is certain, baby items quickly take over a home, so having sufficient storage in the nursery is always a good idea. When looking at nursery ideas, you’ll want to gage how much storage you think you’ll need. This can help make decisions for furniture simpler. Though furniture in your nursery design is an important decision in the overall process, working on the nursery layout is equally important. You will want to include a glider or rocking chair with sufficient room to rock the baby, and a crib that isn’t in direct sunlight, unless of course you invest in light-blocking curtains for naps! A changing table should be positioned so that things are easily in reach, like clothing, diapers, and other odds and ends. Anything you can do to make life a bit easier is welcome in a nursery space. There is no shortage of nursery design inspiration for whatever your needs and style are. If you want a simple and minimalistic nursery, or a bold animal themed space, it exists.  Remember this is a space you will spend a lot of time in, and however it looks, make it something that brings you joy to see! This is why we’ve compiled our favorite nursery design ideas, to help you on this exciting journey.
