With so many themes to choose from for your baby’s nursery, it’s never been easier to create the perfect space to welcome your new baby into. From classic décor to modern or boho styles, once you know the style you want to go for you can run with your ideas and design an area that even you won’t ever want to leave. Whether you’re having a little boy or a little girl, or perhaps you don’t know yet, these useful tips will help you to create a gorgeous nursery for your newborn.

Nursery Space

Choosing Your Theme

Whilst you often find that each room within your home reflects the other when it comes to the décor, you can be a little more adventurous with the nursery. Not only is the nursery only decorated in this way for a short period of time, but it’s a space where you want to create a lovely escape for your little one, so there’s room to play around with colours and styles. Choosing the right theme for your child’s nursery can be difficult at first, but you often find that once you find the furniture that works for you, you can start to build a theme around the style of those pieces. Online furniture retailer Furniture Plus Online stock some beautiful furniture pieces that would make great additions to a nursery, as well as be reused in other areas of the house when your little one no longer requires a nursery space.

A Space to Read

There’s nothing quite like a soothing bedtime story to send your baby off to sleep, so it’s always beneficial to have a dedicated space within the nursery for reading. Whether you create a reading nook with a stylish tepee and a snuggly rug to sit on next to your baby bouncer, or you prefer a traditional rocking chair to help aid you with getting your baby to settle, you can create a lovely area that will feel peaceful and calming. Some of the most popular children’s books that are a must within a nursery include Guess How Much I Love You, The Very Hungry Caterpillar and The Tiger Who Came to Tea.

The Right Lighting

Having the right type of lighting in the nursery is essential to ensure your newborn gets the sleep they need. Adding a blackout blind is perfect for blocking out any of the light, which is ideal at nap times. You can also buy mood light bulbs to help create a warm and soothing atmosphere that will help your little one drift off and get the sleep they need.
