A new baby brings a lot of excitement…and a lot extra expenses. On top of all the necessities like diapers, clothes, and a stroller, you have a new room to furnish! While this can be exciting it can also be overwhelming. Are you already sick of seeing bunnies crocheted onto everything and Alice In Wonderland-eque furniture? We have some great tips for creating a stylish nursery that you’ll love spending time in and that your baby can grow into.
The Changing Table
Look outside of baby stores for a stylish dresser that you can continue to use once diapers are out of your daily repertoire. Dressers are a great piece of furniture to use in lieu of a traditional changing table because they offer plenty of surface area and come with much needed storage. Try the Jane Dresser for a stylish piece that you’ll keep forever. There is enough room for a changing pad and diapering supplies on this dresser that it can easily and stylishly bed use as a changing table.
Another easy switch you can incorporate into your stylish nursery is a comfortable chair from Rove Concepts instead of a traditional nursing chair. Look for a chair that values comfort and has armrests. Bonus points if comes with a matching ottoman to put your feet up, like the Eames Chair and Ottoman. Keep your living room colors in mind as you can transfer this chair to a common living area once you’re done with it in baby’s room.
Don’t forget about a sleek side table to accompany your nursing chair. You’ll want to be able to keep a glass of water near by and have some place to lay your phone or book.
Look for soothing art work that goes with your nursery theme. Try Etsy (etsy.com/listing/96155283/digital-print-childrens-housewares-room) for a huge range of designs at affordable prices.
Bring some color into the room with a funky area rug (overstock.com/Home-Garden/Hand-tufted-Gray-Canaan-Wool-Rug-6-Round/6543245/product.html). Round rugs look especially great in the center of a nursery and add a level of interest and depth to the room.
