21 TOP SMALL NURSERY IDEAS
1. essential zones
Think in terms of the essential zones-sleeping, diapering and playing when planning the room layout in the baby's nursery. When designing a nursery in a small space, you must focus on a needs based space plan and then pull together the rest of the details.
Fit more storage options into the baby's nursery by utilizing the space wisely. Here, a reading nook in the corner provides storage space for organizing baby's treasured books.
3. THINK VERTICAL
To get the most out of a small nursery, look for vertical storage options. Add shelves for storage.
Make the small nursery airier and open by choosing a neutral color palette. White paint reflects light, making the walls go away and the space looking larger.
5. floor to ceiling curtains
Consider adding floor to ceiling curtains in your baby's small nursery .The curtains will draw the eyes upward, creating an illusion of height.
Invest in furniture and renovations that are multi-functional. The addition of a storage bench in the closet makes it a great space for storing baby's clothes and a reading/playing nook for the little one.
7. ACCENT WALLS
Create an accent wall in the small nursery space. The accent wall draws the eyes to the back of the room, adding drama and excitement to the small nursery.
8. AVOID BULKY FURNITURE
Pick furniture that are scaled down. Furnishings that are smaller and have sleek lines, makes the nursery look larger.
9.GO WITH STRIPES
Consider adding horizontal stripes to the baby's nursery. A small, narrow nursery will visually widen with the addition of horizontal stripes.
Use mirrors to expand walls and amplify light in the small nursery design. The mirror behind the light fixture helps maximize the lights reach.
11.be bold with the ceilings
Go bold with the ceilings in the baby's small nursery. A patterned or reflective wallpaper creates the illusion of depth and height.
12.ROCK A COLOR BLOCK
Mix and match different shades in the same color palette to make the nursery feel larger and more open.
Just because the nursery is small, doesn't mean it can't be dramatic. There's plenty of drama in this nursery from the black accent wall to the velvet upholstered arm chair.
Pick a monochromatic color scheme when decorating the baby's nursery. A nursery with a monochromatic design evokes a feeling of spaciousness, flow and calm.
15.UTILIZE EVERY NOOK
Maximize every inch of floor space by thinking creatively. Here, the dresser/changing table fits perfectly in the floor space in the closet.
16.let the light in
Let the natural light pour into the room when the baby is not sleeping. The natural light will keep the space bright and light.
Use a patterned rug to anchor the nursery and to introduce some personality into the small nursery.
18.keep a low profile
Use low slung furnishings to create an open feel in the baby's nursery. When furnishings and decor are positioned towards the lower half of the room, the space above feels much larger.
19.ADD GILDED FIXTURES
Use fixtures featuring gilded finishes to add interest, glamour and to bounce light around the baby's nursery.
Include different textures in the nursery design. Texture adds dimension to the space and makes the small nursery visually interesting.
