For expectant parents, decorating their child’s nursery is a critical step towards parenthood. Buying and assembling the crib, picking out bedding, and designing the rest of the nursery décor is a great way to create space – literally – for your new arrival.

Nurseries come in many shapes and sizes, and other than a few essentials, like the crib and changing table, the rest of the elements (including nursery wall décor) are chosen to reflect the parents’ individual tastes and preferences. While there aren’t hard-and-fast rules for nursery décor, there are many tips out there that may help shape your design decisions and make the renovation process much easier.

Today, we’ll talk about some of our tried-and-true tips for nursery design, and show you how you can make things a lot easier on yourself by shopping online for nursery essentials.

Keep it Comfortable

Both you and your baby are going to be spending plenty of time in the nursery, so make sure you make choices that will keep both of you comfortable. Many parents opt for a cushioned rocker for late-night feedings, and may choose to add carpet or a rug if there isn’t one there already, to make it easier when the little one starts crawling.

If you want to make sure everything in the nursery coordinates, purchase bedding and other soft goods first, then buy paint and nursery wall décor last. That way, you can pick colors that complement your purchases.

Make It Easy To Clean

Babies are adorable, but they sure can make huge messes! Air-tight diaper pails and other handy appliances will keep the stinky diaper smell at a minimum, but they can’t help you when an inevitable accident occurs. Everything in the nursery, including rugs, furniture slipcovers, and bedding, should be able to be thrown in the wash.

Opt For Versatility

As much as we’d love to keep them small forever, babies eventually grow up. As that happens, their needs change. They won’t need a changing table or crib forever, and some of the best nursery pieces are ones that can play double-duty.

A changing table can be used as a dresser, or nursery wall art repurposed for display in another room of the house. Even if you have to spend a little more, focus on finding pieces for your nursery that can eventually be used in another room, or by your child as they grow up.

Have Your Nursery Art Display Familiar Faces

As your child grows up, keeping familiar faces visible helps them learn about their family. A great way to do this is with a few large family photo prints. Printing off family photos as canvas art for the nursery is a great way to get a durable, long-lasting piece that you can use for years to come.

If you prefer a more traditional framed print, just make sure to keep the frames consistent throughout, and match them to your décor if possible.
