Think Storage, Storage, and More Storage
How can such a tiny person need so much stuff?! It’s a mystery, but as a parent you’ll need to be prepared for the mountains of nappies, clothes, and bedding your little one will need, not to mention all the gifts they’ll be getting. Oh god, the gifts!
You’ll need to kit your nursery out with loads of smart storage solutions. Under-cot storage is perfect for baby bedding essentials and uses space that is otherwise wasted. Definitely consider shelving to keep those non-baby-friendly items, like sanitisation products or changing toiletries, out of your little ones’ reach. Book cases paired with open bins are perfect for storing soft items like toys or blankets. When your child gets a bit older, you can take out the open bins and store books and toys instead.
For clothing storage, choose a chest of drawers or a wardrobe
, or both! Make sure you have enough storage to stock up on nappies, bedding and anything else your little one might need.
Now that you have the functional nursery furniture picked, it’s time to decorate! Grab that roller and let's get going.
Textiles, wallpapers and decorations are the things that bring your nursery together and make a room feel homely. If chosen well, decor can tie all your other pieces together and complete your nursery. There’s nothing worse than finding the perfect set of curtains and then realising they don't match your wall paint, so we recommend choosing your textiles and wallpaper before deciding on a paint colour (though the lads in the DIY store might feel differently when they still can't nail that shade of Orange). Finishing touches, like cushions and blankets, can come last as they can be easily matched to everything else.
Wallpaper and Wall Murals:
These are great ways to add colour and texture to your nursery. Whether you want an accent wall or wallpaper all round, remember to keep the colours neutral and the patterns not too stimulating. Our range of wallpaper
features calming patterns and prints perfect to create a soothing atmosphere.
