Decorating your baby’s nursery is one of the most exciting and memorable projects a parent will do.
But while your little one will give you gentle daily reminders of their existence with little nudges and kicks, you can only imagine what their personality will be like. So how to go about designing the perfect bedroom for your newborn?
HELLO! Online speaks to top nursery interior designer, and owner of Punkin Patch Interiors, Toks Aruoture.
When designing your nursery, start with the end in mind. Your nursery has to be functional as well as beautiful, so before purchasing furniture think about safety and function but also style, the purpose, and the activities that will take place in there.
Besides the obvious sleeping and feeding, consider storage and your lifestyle too. Start by measuring your space as it gives you an informed platform to build on. You will find that nursery furniture comes in different shapes and sizes so you need to take a lot into consideration like alcoves and awkward spaces.
Furniture is available in many styles, designs, finishes and even themes, but be careful to pick one that adheres to the latest British Safety Standards. Cots in the UK come in two main sizes of 60 x 120cm and 70 x 140cm, 131 x 75cm (Boori cots) and 122 x 68cm (Stokke ® Sleepi cot). Cots imported from other countries like the USA are of yet another size. Your choices range from wood or iron, antique, traditional or modern to Natural finish, painted or eco-friendly. Painted furniture with hand painted motifs or themes are also an option. The choice is simply endless.
