With a baby already on the way, now is the perfect time to design their nursery. Careful preparation is essential–you’ll want to make sure the room will provide a safe, comfortable, and pleasant space for the little one. Sadler Building Corporation, your trusted semi custom home builder in the area, shares some handy design tips.
DO pick a specific theme. You can make the nursery as eclectic as you like, but narrowing your focus to a particular theme or style allows for a more cohesive look. If you’re keeping the gender a surprise, you can choose from a variety of neutral themes, like colorful polka dots and zoo animals.
DON’T pick a dark color palette. A smaller nursery should have a lighter color scheme to make the space feel bigger and brighter. This isn’t limited to its walls. Paint the ceiling a lighter shade, or even the same color as the walls. This helps create a vaulted effect that provides the nursery with a more spacious feel. You can ask the premier custom home builder, Sadler Building Corporation, for suggestions on color schemes and other design considerations about the space.
DO designate a nursing and sanitation area. A safe and germ-free nursery allows for a healthier baby, after all. You should consider designating “zones” for nursing and sanitation. Set one area up for baby essentials, like milk, baby bottles and formulae, and on the other side of the room, a space designed for sanitation. Here, you can store antibacterial gels, paper towels, and extra diapers.
DON’T forget about lighting. You can have bigger windows installed in the nursery to increase access to natural light. Not only do they brighten the space considerably–they also let in fresh, healthy air. But don’t overlook window treatments. You don’t want the nursery to be too bright, especially if the windows are facing south. Get sheer drapes or light-blocking blinds that you can pull down to filter the amount of light entering the space.
