Tips to Design a Baby Nursery that will Grow into a Toddler Room?

  • Congratulations, you are now thinking of designing your baby’s nursery. This is not just an exciting time because it truly makes the arrival of your baby seem more real, but it can be somewhat confusing as your baby's room will probably become their toddler room, pre-teen and teen room.

    So how do you go about decorating for a baby to a teen? Try to find styles and designs that will grow with your little one. Original pieces of artwork, window treatments and pieces of furniture are a great place to start to find your personal style and design inspiration.

    Baby Nursery Change Table

    A nursery typically becomes your toddlers room choosing your décor items is very important as they will grow with your child over several years.  Choosing drapery, cushions, baskets and hampers that are high quality and great design will help to keep these items in your child's room for many years.

    Baby Nursery Storage Basket

    Baskets are a great way to hide and secure your baby's diaper changing needs, but will become beautiful catch-all for toys and school supplies in the future.  Hampers are also fantastic and can be used for more than just dirty laundry as they are a great way to consolidate toys and allow you to carry them from room to room as needed.

    Nursery Drapes

    Choosing a drape fabric in a darker colour and a rod pocket top will help eliminate more light, but adding a blind is a good idea as the light in your baby's room will change over the seasons (as it becomes more intense in the summer month), and a drape and blind will help to keep out light and heat/cold.

    Although it feels like there is so much to do just remember that designing your baby's nursery is a fantastic journey, try not to stress, and enjoy the journey.
