NURSERY DECORATIONS THAT GROW WITH YOUR CHILDREN
When you have a little one on the way, it’s easy to get carried away with picturesque nursery furniture. While everyone wants their first (and even second!) nursery to look cute, the most important thing to consider is how your children will grow with the furniture.
When looking for furniture, pick pieces that you can repurpose in other areas of your home or that will still work during the transition from newborn to infant to toddler and even teen.
We rounded up top tips to designing a nursery that will grow as your child does.
Invest in Timeless Pieces
It’s tempting to design a nursery or child’s room around their current developmental stage and interest, but you need to factor in evolving tastes and preferences as they get older. Investing in timeless furniture allows you to easily transition from nursery to kid’s room all the way through teenage years and beyond. For example, choose a grown-up style dresser, like the Novella Dresser from Nursery Works, and outfit it with a removable changing tray that will age with your child.
Choose Multifunctional Furniture
Double-duty furniture is ideal, so find furniture that offers a clean slate which you can easily accent with accessories as age, taste and style evolve – like buying a crib that transforms into a toddler bed or using clear acrylic shelving, from Ubabub, that can be moved out of the child's room and into a home office.
Keep It Neutral
To keep the look of your child’s room timeless, opt for neutral colors for both the walls and furniture, and accessories with some colorful pieces. That way your base can stay the same for years, and you can swap out the accessories as your child grows. Plus, staying neutral doesn’t mean you can’t be bold! Add an accent wall in your child’s room with neutral wallpaper that has a fun pattern – we really love the wallpaper collection from Metolius Home!
Add Personality With Accessories
Add character to your child’s room with unique accessories, like rugs, shelves, throw pillows, and picture frames, that bring out the personality of your child. At Batch, we’re obsessed with the Tree Bookcase from Nursery Works – not only is the design is simple, neutral and eye catching, but it’s also a super cute and functional way to display your child’s favorite books.
Nothing is permanent when it comes to kids, and the design of their room is no exception. As you embark on a journey to decorate your nursery, keep these tips in mind to create a stunning room that marries both form and function for your child.
