Creating a Baby’s Nursery Room

A new baby in a home is a cause for not only excitement but the thrill of designing and decorating a baby’s room will delight your inner interior designer. Many people keep the design of a baby’s room in keeping with the look of the rest of their home – contemporary, Early American or Mediterranean – while still others decide to just make this room especially for baby and not worry about whether it fits with the rest of the house. These are your two options for creating your babys nursery. convertible crib set

Today there is a trend with purchasing a crib that will be able to convert to a child’s bed once they have outgrown the need for the crib. With that in mind there are many beautiful cribs that come in a variety of wood finishes – from honey oak, cherry, espresso or traditional white.

These cribs convert to a twin or a full size bed using the same framework thus saving the need to purchase another bed in a few years. This might require a larger initial investment but it makes sense long-term as you can just switch the baby bedding to a child’s bedding when the time comes.

Most cribs – whether it is a convertible one or not – have matching pieces that come with them and usually include a dresser and often a changing table as well these work perfect for creating a consistent design. Sometimes the dresser is also a changing table too with a separate changing table pad that can be placed on top for that purpose. A nightstand might be an additional piece that is purchased at the same time as your crib set.

Once you have determined the wood finish and the number of pieces of furniture you will buy for the baby other considerations might be a rocking rocking chair gliderchair for those late night feedings in particular when you just want to go back to bed. With a rocker you can at least be resting while feeding your child. A cradle is also a nice touch if you have room – particularly for tiny babies as they otherwise seem so lost in the vastness of a crib making a cradle like a small cocoon and the beauty of them is that you can take it elsewhere in the house if you like.

Many people like to have a mural drawn on at least one wall in the room choosing a carnival or a safari or a barnyard theme any of which will delight any child. You can carry out the theme with decorative pillows, artwork or your crib bedding along with mobiles hung over the crib and plush toys in the room, such as a stuffed giraffe.

The options are endless but these often transform a room from a pretty baby’s bedroom to a fun-filled nursery that will delight everyone in the family.
