Creating a nursery can be one of the most exciting moments in a parent's life. Especially if she is expecting her first. While you probably already know the basic items of need such as a crib and a diaper station, D.J.'s Painting and Remodeling Inc believes details create the perfect space for your little one.
Can't have a nursery without a crib! With the space you've chosen for your nursery, plan out where you want the crib, diaper changing station, and rocking chair. Take measurements to see how much space you have to work with. For decorating, decide on the color that you want to work with. Darker patterns can bring in a bold modern look, while lighter can create a sophisticated look. Don't feel constricted based on gender, unless you are going the pink/blue route. D.J.'s Painting and Remodeling suggest keeping it neutral if you plan on having more than one child.
A baby requires lots of essentials. Plan for more than enough storage. Keep the most used items, such as diapers and bottles, conveniently located. Proper shelving will help you stay organized and can be great for adding decor, but we suggest not placing any shelving above the crib for prevention of falling items. If you are limited on space, investing in furniture with built in storage will be to your benefit.
While you want to have enough light to see their adorable face, a soft amount of light will do for a nursery. Chandeliers or ceiling lamps are a great idea to create a serene room, which is what a baby needs to get lots of sleep. Get creative with night lights by using a plug in, a wall lamp or a projector.
D.J.s Painting and Remodeling Inc. believes that a happy surrounding means a happy baby, and happy new parents. Enjoy creating a space for the newest addition to your family.
