ARLENE’S TOP 5 TIPS
1/ Start with space planning, this is essential. Firstly, work out what you absolutely need for the nursery i.e. baby cot, baby changing table and armchair. Get the essentials right first and then move towards the decorating which is the fun part.
2/ Natural light is key to check for and how it works in the space. Take some time look for this in the room. Black out window treatments will be very important also, to help your baby (and parents!) sleep.
3/Storage is extremely important, especially as your little one grows. One can never have enough storage in a nursery for the essentials i.e.: nappies and your little ones ever growing wardrobe and toy collection. Everything should have a place and careful planning can help you achieve a space that flows easily and works hard for you.
4/ Flooring should be very robust and durable. I would recommend a hypo allergenic carpet or a laminate flooring. Laminates have rapidly improved over the years and amazing wooden floor options help both a small space look larger- but are easy to maintain.
5/ Lastly try and figure out what your baby style is. You may only need the key essentials in your nursery at first, until you meet him or her. Once your little one moves into their nursery you can always add extra pieces or play with room themes. Look around for baby styles that will inspire you when entering the world of nursery design.
