Decorating your baby’s nursery is one of the fun parts of becoming a parent, and it all starts with choosing the right room. Picking a suitable and convenient space for your baby is easier said than done, and we’re here to help you make the right choice.
A nursery should ideally be located in close proximity to your bedroom so you can easily check in your toddler, but it comes in handy to have easy access to the kitchen or bathroom.
Your baby will need a lot of natural light to thrive, so opt for a room with big windows and good ventilation. Your baby will need some peace and quiet to sleep soundly, so avoid opting for a room located near high-traffic areas.
It’s also important to babyproof your nursery by making sure there are no safety hazards in sight, ranging from sharp corners to exposed cords and outlets.
Even if the space in your house is limited, don’t go with a room that feels cramped or cluttered, and make sure there’s enough space inside to fit all the furniture and other baby items.
You also shouldn’t go with a room that’s too small because you’ll most likely transform a nursery into a kids’ bedroom down the road, so opt for a room that’s easily adaptable.
