6 Tips For Creating A Dreamy Sustainable Nursery

Creating a dream nursery is an exciting and rewarding experience for any expecting parent. Not only is it a chance to decorate and personalize a space for your little one, but it also provides a safe and comfortable environment for them to grow and thrive. In this blog post, we’ll share some tips and ideas for creating a dream nursery.

1. Start with a Plan
Before you start buying furniture and décor, take the time to create a plan for your nursery. Think about the layout, color scheme, and overall aesthetic you want to achieve. Consider the size of the room (be sure to measure the space before buying furniture!), the amount of natural light, and the placement of windows and doors.
2. Choose a Theme
A theme can help tie your nursery together and make it feel cohesive. Some popular nursery themes include animals, nature, and vintage-inspired designs. Choose a theme that resonates with you and your family, and build your décor and furniture choices around it. A minimalist design is always a good place to start as this will allow you to add personality to the room as your baby starts to have their own interests. 


3. Invest in Quality Furniture

When it comes to nursery furniture, quality matters. Choose pieces that are well-made and sturdy, and that will grow with your child. Our convertible Serena Cot Bed, for example, can be transformed from a co-sleeping crib to a cot, a toddler bed, and finally to a first bed as your child gets older! Buy smarter, buy less, buy better.

Another smart nursery solution is to use a dresser with a removable changing table attachment. This way you can keep all your baby's bits organized and have a sturdy changing station. After the baby is potty trained the dresser can still be used for years and generations to come to store kids, teenager and adult clothes alike!

4. Add Soft Furnishings

Soft furnishings like rugs, curtains, and bedding can add warmth and texture to your nursery. Choose fabrics that are soft and gentle on your baby’s skin, and consider adding blackout curtains to help your little one sleep better.

5. Get Creative with Storage

Storage is essential in any nursery, as you’ll need a place to store all of your baby’s clothes, diapers, and other essentials. Get creative with your storage solutions by incorporating baskets, shelves, and hanging organizers.

6. Incorporate Personal Touches

Finally, don’t forget to incorporate personal touches that make your nursery feel like home. Display family photos, hang your baby’s name in wooden letters, or add a gallery wall of art and prints that inspire you.
Creating a dream nursery takes time, effort, and careful planning, but it’s a project that’s well worth the investment. By following these tips and incorporating your own personal style and preferences, you’ll create a beautiful and functional space that your family can enjoy for years to come.
