Small Nursery Design Ideas
Design a nursery that makes you relax, smile and enjoy. This list of 12 ideas will help you create an amazing nursery.
Creating a nursery has become standard practice when expecting a new-born. These days, pretty much everyone with a baby is expected to have one.
Why? A nursery is a one-stop for all of the basic needs of a baby. It provides a safe space for your baby to sleep when they are not beside you.
So, if you need a little space to yourself or a good night’s rest, it’ll be great to have a nursery in your home. It is also a great place to feed the baby and store all their toys.
One more thing. Since we’re talking about babies here and they poop – like a lot, a nursery makes a good designated spot for all diaper changes and wipe-downs.
Now, if you’ve decided to get a nursery and you have a lot of stuff you want in it, but only have a small space to work with, this post is for you.
There are a lot of creative ways to make the most of the space you have and get amazing nursery designs for your baby.
Here’s a list of insanely simple tips and ideas to produce a beautiful nursery for your child!
When you make a list of items you’ll need in a nursery, you’ll realize almost immediately that babies need a lot of stuff. Hence, you should manage the space you have properly and use the room plan to your advantage to get the best possible result.
Cribs come in different sizes and if you live in a modest apartment, space is a vital factor for your nursery. Choosing a big crib can take a lot of space that could otherwise be effectively managed to fit more items and still look good.
There are a few things to look out for when choosing a small crib so that it is just as effective for you as a bigger one would have been.
Closets can serve as a great storage option for smaller apartments. You could consider converting it into a nursery and use a wardrobe for your clothes. Alternatively, the closet and surrounding areas can store the baby essentials and accessories.
Furniture often takes up a lot of space in the nursery. Some of them that take up space are not necessary and end up just being bulky with no essential function. Foldable furniture can help preserve space and still serve as a functional unit.
A space-saving hack is to take full advantage of the storage areas to keep essentials. You can even come up with your out-of-the-box ideas for storage space. Start by looking around the room and identifying areas that aren’t properly utilized or have extra space to use as storage.
Changing tables are an integral part of the nursery but they take up a lot of space. You have to make the best with the space you have on the changing table and around it. One of the factors in determining how effectively you can use the space is the design and type of changing table.
Nursing pillows can be a great addition if you’re breastfeeding. They help you and your baby get into a comfortable position when breastfeeding. Strains in the neck, arms, and neck are greatly reduced with a nursing pillow and it gives the baby an extra lift.
But to save space, a specific pillow for nursing isn’t necessary. A carefully selected pillow from your bedroom will do the job just fine.
Wall art can add a lot of personality and beauty to the nursery. It can liven up space, fill up empty walls, and make up for the little space you have in the nursery. This is a chance for you to be more experimental and try different themes you couldn’t with furniture because of limited space.
You and the baby will be spending a great deal of time in the nursery, so you need to make sure it is safe and there are no hazards that could harm anybody. You might not be around the baby every time they are in the nursery.
Therefore, checking for safety is an ongoing process and an aspect you should be aware of every time you step into the nursery.
As children accumulate toys over time, they could get scattered all over the house. You will need a toy organizer to keep the toys in a safe place and keep the room tidy.
With a toy organizer, you don’t have to deal with misplaced toys or a messy nursery. Plus, it’s a great way to encourage your kids to clean.
The excitement of getting a baby might make you want to go all out for the decoration, but babies don’t even need a lot of fancy decors. Most of the decorations and art are for you because you’re going to be spending an awful lot of time in the nursery.
Keep it simple and avoid going over the top. Make more productive use of the space for more functional items and accessories for the baby.
Gliders can be of great use in the nursery especially during the first few months after childbirth. The smooth motion back and forth is good for calming the baby’s nerves and also helps the mother relax for C-section recovery. It’s also a great place to feed or read stories to the baby.
These ideas for more space in a nursery also depend heavily on your preferences. Some accessories may be useless to you. Some others you can’t do without. Use these chic ideas as a guide in designing your nursery and the results would be amazing.
You and your new-born will have a nursery you can be proud of soon. Happy designing!
