A new baby is always a welcome and an extremely looked forward to event in any family. The new parents usually go through months and months of preparations in order to ensure that the new arrival to the family gets the best of everything. As such parents go for pre-natal classes, take meditating lessons, purchase baby items and do many other things in preparation for a new baby. Decorating a new nursery is one such important task and can be a religious experience in itself. The act of creating that perfect little space for your new born baby will make you feel closer than ever to your baby.
All new parents want to get it right when making a nursery for their baby. However if you work on it haphazardly, without a set plan, you are not going to get that cover page nursery with antique cribs and custom mosaic tiles Melbourne you had in mind. So here are some tips on how to make a nursery, from scratch.
Measure Everything Up
So now you have an empty room, with freedom to decorate to your heart’s content. But, hold your horses before you go ahead and order a stack of custom wallpaper, in shades of pink and blue. First measure everything out. Write down the measurements on piece of paper and carry it with you at all times. This way, if you happen to see something that you like, you always have a measurement card with you.
Prepare an approximate layout of the room. Decide where you are going to place the crib, the changing table and the other essentials. As a practice, keep the crib close to the door and away from windows. The changing table and the nappy drawers should be close to the crib. Draw this on a piece of paper too, if you feel necessary. This may change, depending on the things you buy for the nursery.
It is best to work with a single colour scheme when decorating your baby’s nursery. If you know the gender, feel free to go with either pink or blue. If you don’t, and wish to pleasantly surprised, choose gender neutral colours such as yellow or green or a mix of everything. You could also have a theme for the room. This will help when you are buying furniture for the room.
Buy the Essentials
Now that you have a plan, start buying the essentials such as a crib, changing table, a chest of drawers to store all his clothing. You should also buy waterproof bins to put all those wet diapers. Once you have the essentials, think about the additional features such as rocking chairs, antique lace curtains and rugs.
