Building the Perfect Nursery

Building the perfect nurseryWhen it comes to having a baby, one of the many great things about it is building the perfect nursery.

You can have so much fun with paint schemes, wall decals, bedding, baby furniture, lighting, and more.

With a little imagination and a while lot of sifting through magazine, you can create a dreamy wonderland where your baby can grow up and take comfort. But make sure not to overdo it; sometimes less is more, especially in the case of a baby room.

So without further ado, here are the elements needed to build the perfect nursery.

The crib

Building the perfect nursery - the cribWhile crib mattresses are standard in size, the cribs themselves can come in an array of shapes and sizes. Some cribs are large and drawn out, while others look small and compact.

When you choose your style for building the perfect nursery, think about how much space you want the crib to take up. Think safety first; choose a crib that feels steady.

As well, many crib designer create the 3-in-1 bed that transforms from crib to day bed to toddler’s bed, which is an economical way to update the room when the time comes.

You can opt to buy a set or buy them separately and mix and match as you see fit.

Keep in mind, however, that blankets, quilts and pillows shouldn’t be placed in the crib even if they come with the sets.

There is an array of colors to go with although admittedly, most parents opt for soft pastels.

The nursing chair

Nursing is a part of being a mother so it makes perfect sense to have one in the room if you want to build the perfect nursery. Make sure the chair is one that you can get in and out of easily. A rocking chair works well for soothing baby, but it may be best to get one that allows you to put the brake on and make it stop rocking.

The night table should be very close by so that you can easily place and take things from it including burp cloths, books, etc. And it wouldn’t hurt if it matched the room.

The change table

Ah yes, the table where the magic happens. The change table is where your child will lay down and stare up at the ceiling while you tend to their business. Speaking from experience, I prefer a change table that is long and flat, rather than the double decker, especially considering my kids grew so incredibly fast.

Get yourself a change table that sits at a comfortable height and allows for easy access to the necessities like diapers, wipes, creams, and the like. A great changing table is a big part of building the perfect nursery.


I am not a big fan of carpeting because of allergens, but I like having a small rug in the room to keep my feet warm and allow the baby to sit without the worry that the ground is too cold.
A nice pattern that complements the décor is always a nice touch for building the perfect nursery.

Wall décor

Make sure not to place items directly above the child’s bed or near the diaper change area, as kids tend to be swift when it comes to knocking things down.
