Save Money & Design A Nursery That Grows With Your Child6:29 AM
When it comes to creating a nursery for your new addition, it’s tempting to go all out and design a room fit for a little prince or princess. While there’s nothing wrong with investing in your child’s nursery, if you’re going to spend a lot on it, you want it to be a space that grows with them. Otherwise, it’s a waste of money.
What a ‘room that grows with them’ means is a room that isn’t just for their baby years, but that is also suitable for them when they develop into a toddler, and eventually a young child. By creating a space that will grow with your child, you can cut costs as you won’t have to redesign their room for at least a few years.
To create a nursery that will grow with your child, saving yourself a lot of money, here’s what you need to do:
Pick the color scheme carefully
Add style with accessories
Talking of accessories, when it comes to creating a room that grows with your little one, the key is accessories. This is because when it comes to creating a space that can be adapted as your child grows, changing up the accessories that are in place is crucial. It’s amazing how much difference changing up the accessories can make when it comes to giving a room a new look and feel. Think wall art, throws, cushions, rugs, bedding, curtains, and lamps. The great thing about investing in new accessories every year or so is that they don’t tend to be too expensive.
Be selective about the furniture
Opt for hard flooring
Last but not least, if you want the room to stand the test of time, don’t opt for carpet. The problem with carpet is that it gets dirty incredibly easily, meaning that it doesn’t last for too long. Whereas, if you invest in hard flooring, it will stand the test of time, as hard flooring is much easier to keep clean. Don’t worry about it being too cold, you can always have underfloor heating installed, or you can dot lots of rugs around the room to make up for the lack of carpet.
So, there you have it, how to save money and design a nursery that grows with your child.
