The nursery or the baby room is probably one of the most exciting design
projects a family can ever embark on. Just like the teen bedroom,
it is fun to design because it allows for creativity, plus it is
intended for someone very special in the family, thus making it the
most rewarding of all decorating projects. Many would assume that
designing a nursery is unchallenging, but there is more to it than
choosing blue for boy and pink for girl. If you’re wondering about
the things you need for the perfect room for your little one, we’ve
answered some of the most common questions people have about this
to design a gender neutral nursery?
for girls and blue for boys are the go-to colors when it comes to
designing a kid’s room. But, you don’t have to confine yourself
to these colors. Nowadays, parents prefer to make their children’s bedrooms or nurseries more gender neutral, with a more pointed focus on their own
personalities and home’s style than the child’s gender. If you
want to design a non gender specific room, choose colors that are
more middle-of-the-road such as mint green, lavender, red, and
yellow. You can pair these colors with white and grey for a chicer
are the most important features of a baby room?
things first, you will need to baby proof the room (and even the
entire house!). Protecting the outlets, drawers, doors, windows, and
any sharp edge are a must and there are tons of gadgets in the
Philippine market where you can get such items. Another important
nursery feature is a dedicated space for changing diapers and for
keeping handy all the things you will need for that. Babies will
probably need diapers for at least two years, so it is better to have
a furniture that is of good quality (changing diapers in the bed is
definitely not a good idea for anyone's back!). Of course, we also
need a nice and comfy crib! Even when most of the newborns might
sleep in their parents bed for a while, it is necessary to have a
nice a comfy crib for the baby and the parents. Some parents will
prefer one crib that offers multiple functions. This way, the baby
will use the same bed from birth until two to three years. Some other
parents will prefer to get a smaller-sized crib that can be attached
to their bed. There is a downside to the latter, however - you will
need a new baby bed once the baby past the 6 months !If the mother
will breastfeed the baby a nice chair or armchair or even a sofa
it's a great idea. Moms need comfortable seating when breastfeeding,
Choosing the best lighting for your baby room
is very important for the baby room and here there are few things
that are very important to keep in mind. First, control the natural
light with a pair of nice and heavy curtains for the windows
(blackout for example). Second, choose a warm and soft light to
illuminate the room. For best results, install a dimmer and consider
investing on a night light. Furthermore, it is of great importance to
consider the need of a heat lamp. Why? Well, this is because babies
loose temperature very quickly, especially while they are getting
their diapers changed or after a bath.
is the secret to a perfect baby room?
the room is always a great idea, but keep in mind that less is more.
Also, better to choose things that won´t be a risk for your baby's
health. We also advice to avoid small toys, plastic toys, as well as
wooden toys with toxic paint.
