To successfully help you create a nursery space in your master bedroom, choose furniture which can be used in many ways, utilize a white noise machine to hush noises, coordinate the infant’s decor with your own room, coordinate your baby decors and furniture colors with your master bedroom, and separate the nursery and master bedroom with dividers or floor mats.
Having a new baby in the family requires some adjustments at home. Putting up an extra space in your master bedroom and turning it into a nursery area is a wise thing to do especially when you have limited rooms at home. The following tips will help you create a nursery space in your master bedroom which is convenient for you and your baby:
Choose furniture which can be used in many ways
Furniture that serves more than one purpose, will give you more room. You can opt for a changing table that has drawers and the crib which has shelves so that it will take less space. Other space-saving furniture includes cribs with detachable compartments and clip-on organizers. Besides saving valuable space, everything your infant needs is within arm’s reach and is well-organized.
Use a white noise machine to drown out other noise
Unlike in a nursery room that is exclusive for your baby, there are other noises in your room that could make it uncomfortable for baby to rest, sleep, or play. Your baby might be disturbed by the noise of the TV, radio, and conversations between you and your spouse. To drown out other noise in your room, use a Sound machine and make baby’s space in the room more conducive and soothing, especially at night.
Select infant furnishings that go with the overall feel of your room
To make your room aesthetically pleasing, you can coordinate your nursery space with the existing theme in your room. For example, if you have leaf designs on your wall paper, you can choose a garden theme for your nursery space. You could decorate with pictures of the sun, trees, colorful flowers, a green meadow, and even a rainbow to match the baby’s space with yours.
Harmonize the colors of your baby dcor and furniture with your master bedroom
It is not necessary to paint the entire room with shades of pink or blue. The main point here is to select infant furniture that matches whatever you already own. It will be much more pleasing to the eyes this way.
Use a divider or a floor mat to separate the spaces
If you want to put distinction between your space and the nursery space, you can put a divider in your room or set up a floor mat on the nursery space. It may not be required, but separating your area from the baby’s space with these dividers can help both you and your baby feel being inside another room the moment you step in and out the nursery area.
You don’t have to trouble yourself nor pay too much on this simple, but beautiful, project at home. It just takes some creativity and imagination to successfully include a nursery area in your master bedroom and save some space at the same time.
