Although there are many things to think about and get prepared for when expecting a new baby, one of the biggest focuses is the nursery. This is the place where the baby and the parents should both feel relaxed and comfortable so it is worth putting some though into the items that you will need in there and the design.
Of course the one piece of furniture that is essential to the nursery is the crib. You can find many different designs these days, but one of the most useful is a convertible crib natural colored. This is best for two reasons – one, the natural color is suitable for both male and female babies. Even if you know what you are having this time, next time it might be different. And second, the convertible design means that you can use it from infant up to toddler age.
Other furniture that is very useful in the nursery includes a diaper changing table and a comfortable arm chair for sitting in while feeding baby.
When you have chosen and purchased the crib, you will need to think about buying the cot mattress. It needs to be firm and fit the cot precisely. You can choose designer baby bedding, which will make your nursery look extra special, or you can choose a few sets of cheaper bedding for the cot. Either way, you will probably need about four sets of sheets to keep up with the demands of the baby.
There are some lovely bedding sets that you can buy for your baby’s nursery. The Disney baby bedding sets are easy to find and look great when you have set up the nursery to match. These can be very useful if you do not know the sex of your baby yet.
To decorate the walls of the nursery it often looks great to have a mural painted. If you are not of the artistic persuasion, then you can either hire a painter to do it for you or you may be able to get decal stickers to place on the walls. Often the decals stay there with static and do not have to be stuck on with glue.
With a little thought and preparation to match your needs you can design a baby nursery that will look stunning while being functional. It should be a place where you and your bub will feel relaxed.
