Designing a Nursery That Grows With Your Child

One of the most enjoyable ways to prepare for a new baby is to set up the nursery. There are so many sweet options when it comes to the look of this special space, but those styles can quickly become outdated as your baby grows into a young child. Here are some ways you can create a room to love that also lasts for many years to come.

Choose a Special Keepsake

Search specialty gift shops, like Hallmark Online, to find a unique figurine, box or book for your nursery. To make it even more meaningful, write a short message to your new baby on the bottom. Once your child is older, this keepsake can easily be incorporated into the room’s updated d├ęcor by being placed on a dresser or shelf.  It can also serve as a memento to be cherished well into adulthood.

Pick Neutral Colors

Use paint colors, bedding and window treatments that can work well with many styles and themes. Personalize and add color by accessorizing with wall art, throw pillows and lamps. As your child grows and develops their own personality and interests, you won’t have to start from scratch to add in the things they love.

Purchase a Convertible Crib

New furniture is a pricey investment, but it can be worth the money if it’s made to be used for more than just a year or two. Find a piece that transitions from crib to toddler bed to a regular bed in order to save yourself from three separate purchases. Remember to pick a finish that’s easy to touch up. With teeth marks, scratches and coloring mishaps, kids can be rough on the furniture in their personal space.

As you’re nesting for your new baby, make design choices that you can enjoy for years, not just months. The longer the room is relevant, the more memories you can make there.
