Becoming a mother is undoubtedly one of the greatest joys in life. Though I do not say this from personal experience ( I am FAR too young for that), I have seen how much time and thought goes into developing the perfect environment for a newborn. While designing the perfect environment can be a daunting task, keeping a few pointers in mind can make it a little bit simpler.
Do keep a focal point: Most nurseries are centered around a crib and such an arrangement makes it easier to design a nursery. Everything in a nursery is centered around the baby’s needs, so, logically, everything should be optimally placed around the crib.
Space and lots of it: Always remember that a nursery would facilitate a child’s growth and children do grow, therefore the room you select for a nursery should be large enough for the child to move around in.
Synchronized colour schemes: There is nothing more soothing than a placid clour scheme – colours that are too bold, like fluorescent shades should be avoided. A mixture of soothing colours like earthy shades is perfect for a nurturing environment.
Not too scanty, not too clustered: Nobody likes a scantily furnished room just as clumsy rooms are frowned upon. Deciding on the perfect amount of furniture is important. To ensure this, keep in mind the absolute necessities – a cleaning station, a feeding station, cupboards, seating area, a ceiling fan, shelves, small tables and of course, the crib.
Lighting: One should ensure that daylight is the major source of light during the day. At night, a nightlight is must.
And last, but not the least, don’t forget to childproof your nursery !
