Preparing a baby room can be a fun and rewarding experience. Alternatively, it can be overwhelming, especially if you don’t know where to begin. Several elements in the decoration are essential, such as the crib and the place to feed the baby. As such, here are some starting points and tips to start getting your new bedroom in order.
Make a sketch of the furniture layout
We recommend, in the first, that you start drawing a floor plan of the room. Arrange the furniture in the space where you think it should be. Take some extra precautions. Do not place the crib near the window to avoid drafts, or even the curtains.
The changing cabinet should be placed near the crib for practical reasons. Also nearby should be an armchair, preferably next to a window, so you can rock and feed the child . This armchair should be a well-thought-out investment, as it will be a place where you will spend a lot of time during the first months of your baby’s life.
Bedding with health in mind
Heavy wool blankets, for example, are great accumulators of dust and mites , which could harmful to the health of newborns. So, opt instead for your duvet and bamboo bedsheets that are made of pure organic. Cotton fabrics are highly breathable and help with air circulation. This will make your baby’s sleep much more comfortable and peaceful.
Wardrobe must always be neat
It is essential that the room is always clean and extremely tidy. This is a matter of health and protection against possible allergies. As such, the baby’s clothes must be well organized and easily accessible, as well as all toys and other accessories.
You can choose to purchase or order a custom-made baby wardrobe from experienced professionals. If you want something more long-term and the baby’s room is for when they grow up, consider making a built-in wardrobe or a more neutral closet for the child.
Harmonious color palette & peaceful environment
Choose white noise machine that convey a peaceful sound and select light colors that harmonious environment. The walls should have a light tone, as well as the bedding. However, it can and should also stimulate the baby’s sensations with color, liveliness and joy. To give this touch, the ideal is to use one or another colored element that draws attention to detail and gives the room a vibrant look.
Repairs and adaptations
Another absolutely essential action is to carry out all the repairs and DIY necessary to adapt the room with all the safety and comfort that the baby needs. Don’t forget to cover the electrical outlets and install protective nets; if you’re afraid to move, ask an electrician for help.
Make sure the crib is well assembled, with no loose screws or elements that could hurt the child and all the other furniture in the room. Do not place objects hanging and get protectors for the doors.
Follow these tips, and you will have the perfect place for your baby to relax and grow up happily and safely!
