Regardless of your nursery design style, organization and nursery layouts are key to making sure that the baby's room is functional.
Taking care of a little bundle of joy is no easy task. There's the late night feedings, contant diaper changes and of course, hours spent trying to calm a fussy baby.
So when designing your baby's nursery, of course you want the nursery to look beautiful but you should also focus on nursery layouts that are practical.
You may start off designing the nursery by considering design elements like the colour palette, furnishings and decor details, but first you need to think about the nursery layout.
When choosing the nursery layout, consider factors such as easy access to the diapering station for diaper changes, placement of crib away from windows to protect the baby from cold drafts as well as hanging cords and the positioning of the nursery chair so you can sit and watch the baby when she's sleeping. (You'll find yourself doing this quite a bit!)
The following 5 nursery layouts should give you an idea of the best option for your needs and your space.
5 NURSERY LAYOUT IDEAS FOR THE BABY'S ROOM
1.NURSERY LAYOUT WITH CRIB AND NURSERY CHAIR NEXT TO EACH OTHER
This nursery layout is a great option if the room is small. You place the crib and the nursery chair against the same wall and use the opposite wall for the dresser, hence giving the room balance.
2. NURSERY LAYOUT WITH CRIB PLACED OPPOSITE THE NURSERY CHAIR
It's important to place the crib away from large windows. So in this nursery layout, the crib is positioned alone while the nursery chair and the dresser/ changing table is across, making diaper duty easier.
3.NURSERY LAYOUT WITH CRIB IN THE CORNER
This small nursery layout maximizes space in the room by placing the crib in a corner. This placement allows you to place a dresser/changing table as well as a nursery chair in a small room.
4.NURSERY LAYOUT WITH CRIB AND DIAPERING STATION NEXT TO EACH OTHER
Here the nursery layout optimizes the space and makes the nursery super functional. The diapering station close to the crib makes late night diaper changes quick and easy while the placement of the crib away from the window, allows the warm light to flood into the nursery but from distance.
5.NURSERY LAYOUT FOR A TWIN NURSERY
When designing a twin nursery, there's many nursery layouts to consider, but this is one of our favorite nursery layouts for shared spaces. Placing both the cribs against the same wall with the dresser in the middle to balance the room is the perfect layout.
