Most modern designers try to provide a nursery that is suitable for a baby but that will also be a good starting point for a young child’s room, so that you don’t have to make extensive changes in a couple of years time.


Blinds And Drapes.

Getting a good night’s sleep is a problem that most new parents will be well aware of. Once you have got through night feeding, keeping you nursery dark is the key to an uneventful night. Install coordinating drapes and blinds in your nursery to keep light to a minimum.

If your baby is put to bed when the sun is still up it will help restful sleep. Equally, doubling up with drapes and blinds means that your baby is less likely to wake the minute the sun comes up. Roman blinds or Venetians work equally as well as one another. Select black out drapes to sit in front of the blinds to keep the light level down.

Modern nursery designs tend not to go overboard with gender these days. Girls’ rooms are no longer designed with a great deal of pink over the walls and furnishings. Instead, use soft pinks more sparingly, perhaps with a rug and some drapes, rather than turning the entire wall and floor space over to the color.

Equally, boys’ rooms tend to have some elements in powder blue, but without going overboard. Indeed the most commonly found trend for modern nurseries is to be gender neutral when it comes to color schemes. After all, grays, yellows and greens all look great in a décor designed for a baby.

Changing Mats.

When it comes to changing your baby, a floor with a simple mat is often good enough. However, there are some clever changing mats that are available nowadays. Designed so that you don’t have to bend over a long way, these mats are often made to coordinate with your choice of crib. Changing your baby at waist height is a lot easier than the floor, but the system should have some side protection so that your baby cannot roll and fall.

Cool Cribs.

The ability to drop one, or both, sides is beneficial.
