We are sharing out top tips to create a calming nursery setting for the baby.
A well designed nursery isn't just all about the aesthetics but also about the energy in the space. Considering most babies sleep for 14-17 hours a day during the first few months, creating a calming nursery that's soothing and peaceful will be helpful.
Over time as babies grow older, they'll sleep less for sure, but they'll continue to need a lot of sleep and hence, a good sleep environment in the nursery.
Here's how you can create a calming nursery setting that not only makes sleep time more peaceful but also a more comfortable and welcoming space for the little one.
1. GO WITH SOOTHING COLORS
Consider painting the nursery walls a soothing neutral color to create a peaceful environment in the baby's room. Creams, whites, beiges and greys lend a soothing vibe to the space.
2. HANG BLACkOUT CURTAINS
Window treatments are essential when decorating the nursery, and blackout curtains in particular helps create a calming nursery setting. Blackout curtains can block up to 99% of sunlight from entering baby's room and helps reduce noise, thus creating a good sleep environment for the baby.
3. ADD A SOUND MACHINE
A sound machine drowns out the background noise that can potentially startle and wake up a baby. Instead, they produce calming sounds such as rain, nature sounds, etc. or produces white noise. Either of these sounds can help create a calming nursery setting for baby.
4. LAY A PLUSH RUG
Rugs are really a game changer when it comes to how a nursery looks and feels. Besides the fact that a rug can pull the whole nursery design together, a nice plush rug can help reduce noise as well.
5. SWAP OUT THE LIGHTS
It's time to get rid of the harsh overhead lighting in the nursery and layer in nursery lighting with dimmers of course, to create the perfect ambience.
6. ADD WARMTH
Make the nursery more comfortable and welcoming by adding warmth to the space. Bring in cozy textiles, layer in textures, go with soft earth tones and incorporate wooden furnishings, to create a nursery that's calming and cozy.
7. CREATE A COZY NURSING NOOK
When baby is not asleep, the baby will probably spend most of the time with you in the nursing nook. Choose a comfortable nursery chair for the nursing nook and bring in a cozy blanket to help create a calming space for both mom and baby.
8. INTRODUCE GREENERY
Whether it's a vase of flowers or a plant, adding some greenery is always a good idea. Plants can make the nursery heathier, more connected to nature and create a calming nursery setting for baby.
