In addition to overwhelming joy, the early days after a baby’s birth bring with them a shortage of free time, fatigue, and exhaustion, so preparing the baby’s room sooner saves significant time. To that end, here we bring you some useful nursery interior design trends that are worth considering.
Keep in mind that as your baby develops, you’ll need more and more places to store clothes, various children’s equipment, and toys. To that end, you will need to learn how to organize a small closet both efficiently and effectively! On the other hand, find places for decorative bags for toys or functional boxes, as well as a few additional drawers or shelves.
Soft pastel hues and some colorful decorations on the walls can stimulate the baby’s senses. Thus, wallpapers with children’s motifs, wall stickers, and cartoons are preferable for the baby’s nursery interior design. On the other hand, cumbersome and unnecessary items that accumulate dust and make it difficult to keep the area clean should be avoided as much as possible!
Lighting for the baby’s room
In the first several months of life, babies’ vision is hazy, and the only thing they can see are sharp contrasts. Thus, lighting is important; if possible, it would be ideal for the baby’s room to be bright enough but also dimmed. Likewise, visual contact with the outside world is critical for a child’s psychological and social development, which is why the newborn should be able to see a part of the sky via one-third of the window opening. As a result, pay attention to the position of the bed in relation to the window when arranging it. Install blinds and a thick curtain to shield your infant from intense sunlight or flashes. It should only go all the way to the bottom of the window.
Free and safe space
Free space for crawling and playing will become increasingly important to the baby as it grows, so this is another issue to consider when arranging a baby room. Thus, storage boxes and decorative cushions are great additions to any room, as long as they are out of reach of children. When it comes to decorative items, it’s critical that they don’t contain anything small and sharp that could end up in the hands of the baby.
When you get the above-mentioned fundamental pieces of furniture for your baby’s room, think about the minor elements that will beautify the room, add a touch of originality and comfort, as well as all of the other essentials and child care equipment that you will need from the start.
Consider whether you want to embellish the walls, write something on them, or adorn them with gorgeous wall stickers after you’ve decided on the room’s arrangement. Examine the state of the floor before deciding whether to cover it with a hard or soft carpet. Also, because the infant will begin crawling very soon, we strongly suggest you install sockets with safety extensions right away to help lift the baby.
The crib or cradle must meet safety requirements. For instance, the distance between the slats does not exceed 6 cm. In the first few days, it is recommended that the infant mattress be firm and raised to the highest position in the crib so that the mother can reach it easily. Also, make sure that the mattress and the bed’s base are the same size so that there is no space between them. Likewise, make sure all of the screws and connections are secure. Next, the optimal location for a crib is in the corner of the room, away from direct sunlight! Similarly, the crib should be moved away from any heat source and electrical outlets by at least 1-1.5 meters. Finally, when ventilating, keep the baby far enough away from the window to avoid direct airflow! Remember, the crib must always be safe!
Optimal temperature and clean air
Many parents, after taking care of the furnishings and equipment, overlook one extremely crucial detail: pure air for the newborns! Recently, there has been a lot of debate about rising air pollution, which is why an air purifier has become a requirement for every family today. The good news is that air purifiers produce fresh, clean air indoors and can help avoid many ailments in children if used regularly, while ensuring that those you care about spend time in a safe atmosphere.
Decorating a child’s room necessitates practicality, creativity, and a lot of love for your child in all you do for them. Caring for a child will be easier and simpler if you consider these nursery interior design tips!
