Twinkle, Twinkle Nursery Tips. 温馨儿童房
To all the mommy to be out there, for this month’s special we are providing you with tips on how to decorate your nursery. 各位妈妈们请注意，我们这个月将为你提供装饰儿童房的小提示。
I don’t know about you, but I sure know that my mother did not take decorating her baby’s room (which is mine) into perspective and she wounded up with baby stuff all over the house. More than often, people seem to leave out these detail until their child is born but little do they know, there is a great deal of importance that needs to go into play. There is normally the problem of where to place the furniture and what needs to be looked out for. So rather and leaving you worrying about what needs to be done, we will provide you with enough information so that you can focus on you and your baby.
Baby Crib Placement
This should be the centre piece of the whole design- as the decision to where the crib goes is absolutely immaculate. Make sure that it is placed away from windows. The crib can be placed in several positions depending on the size of the room. Placing the longer side against the wall is an option. Consequently, if the room is big room you can put one of the ends to the wall so that you have access to both sides of the crib. But if you are working with a small space, consider angling the crib to a save some space.
The Changing Table or Dresser Placement
Where the changing table and/or dresser should be placed is to assist with the design plan. Choosing to place the changing table by electrical outlets can prove to be a wise and convenient choice so that you can plug in lamps, tabletop night lights or other electrical item. Also, locating the changing table near the closet or dresser will make dressing time flow better.
Bookcases can be a great place for storage in a room. If the space that you are working with is limited, choose a taller one verses a shorter wider one. This would ensure that things placed in the nursery are neat and clean – when you have a baby in your arm you would defiantly want to avoid tripping over.
Toy Box Location
To many there is never the need to have a toy box in the home, but believe us you would definitely appreciate a space better when everything is placed in the right place. Toy boxes take up the least amount of space, so place them in whatever space you have left. But take caution when placing the toy box near the window or any piece of furniture where the baby can climb to avoid any unnecessary injury.
To make your baby’s room interesting, you should always add colour and accessories that make the room look cosy. But be careful to always choose the paint or glue with low VOC levels to avoid any medical damages. This is the best time to experiment with your imagination and also colours. So with the use of wall stickers onto a monotone shades would be the better choice as your child grows up you can easily change the style of the room.
As your child grows bigger and they start to discover opening drawers or poking into small holes- it is best to ensure that all the plug points are guarded by a socket lock, as for the drawers you can just install a drawer lock where you would have to unhook before opening. This would be the necessary actions to take.
Try to keep furniture pieces, especially the crib and changing table away from any heating or cooling devices – yes that is the air conditioner. This would prevent your baby from getting burnt or too chilly while getting changed, which may cause their delicate skin to dry out.
