One of the most exciting and important tasks you have to complete before your baby arrives is to set up the nursery. It’s such a special time –with much to decide - colour schemes, furniture, décor and very importantly – storage! When setting up a nursery, storage space is often sacrificed as you reclaim the handy second bedroom that has been doubling as storage for the new arrival!
The key to the success of any new “room” set up is to make a wish list, be realistic and work within your budget. Here are some insights to help guide you, as you venture into the excitement of creating your new babes boudoir!
Buy a full sized cot that will go the distance. Your baby may seem tiny at birth, but they certainly grow quickly, and they will eventually fill the cot! Go for a brand new mattress especially if you are buying a second hand cot.
Soft toys, blocks, puzzles, books, play gyms will fill your nursery, for your baby to play and learn from. Baskets, clever fabric storage cubes (check out the affordable range from Bunnings) and colourful boxes are ideal to house toys, games, books and puzzles in, for easy access as well as a practical storage solution.
*Babies do fashion!
A new baby is an instant excuse for your friends, grandparents and extended family to SHOP! Your new baby will be potentially given many new outfits as gifts, in a range of different sizes and styles, outfits for all seasons. The fashion explosion in your nursery can be insurmountable! Get organized from the beginning; invest in a storage range which is practical, flexible and affordable.
