9 THINGS TO INVEST IN WHEN DESIGNING A NURSERY
The crib is one of the most used piece in a nursery and most often the focal point in the design. So investing in a good quality crib that's beautiful, makes sense. Invest in a convertible crib that grows with the baby for a better ROI.
2. CRIB MATTRESS
The baby will spend a lot of time sleeping, so investing in a high quality crib mattress is a priority. There are many different types of crib mattresses but we personally prefer buying an organic crib mattress that's both luxurious and safe for the baby.
Once again to make your investment worthwhile, look for a crib mattress like this one, which is designed to accommodate both infants and toddlers with a firm side and a cushioned side for later on.
Whether it's a nursery or a kids bedroom, you are always going to need a dresser to organize clothes. Since you'll need a diapering station in the nursery, invest in a good quality dresser with plenty of drawers for storage that can also work as the changing station. You'll end up using this piece for a long time, making it a great investment.
4. NURSERY CHAIR
A nursery chair is where you'll spend a lot of time feeding and rocking the baby to sleep. Later on, you'll continue to use the nursery chair during cuddle time and story time. When designing the nursery, it makes sense to invest in a nursery chair that's comfortable and durable.
Rugs really do make the whole design come together, so we are big fans of investing in a gorgeous rug for the nursery. Find a rug for the nursery that not only elevates the nursery design, but one that can also withstand foot traffic, spills and all.
6. WINDOW TREATMENTS
Window treatments are often an after thought when designing a space. However, investing in good quality window treatments for the nursery will enhance the design, and make it possible for you to create a comfortable sleep environment for the baby. Blackout nursery curtains are our favorite, because you get to control the amount of light entering the space which means, the baby can sleep longer stretches!
7. NURSERY CLOSET
You'll never regret investing in upgrading the nursery closet by adding more shelves and storage. Having a well organized nursery closet will certainly elevate the overall design of the room and make your every day in the nursery much better!
Lighting choices can make or break the nursery design. Invest in nursery lighting options that can enhance the look of the baby's room and create the ambiance you desire.
Investing in pieces that allows you to organize the nursery is key to keep the nursery functional while still looking beautiful. Invest in nursery storage such as a beautiful bookcase, shelves or cabinet when designing the nursery.
