If you have a baby on the way, you'll want to provide your child with as many comforts as you can. Your new child's bedroom is one place to do this.
A nursery is a big part of a baby's world. Make it a nurturing environment for your newborn with careful indoor design choices.
Keep the room warm
The last thing you want is for your baby to get chilly. One way to prevent this is by installing a radiant heat fixture in the nursery. Lava heating involves glass panels that sustainably warm up a room.
By putting one of these panels in the corner of your baby's room, you can maintain the ideal temperature to keep him or her perfectly warm. Also, because these panels are put right on the wall, they won't take up too much space. This leaves you with plenty of room to fill up with delights for your child.
What every nursery should have
There are few basics that your baby's room should have. First and foremost, your child needs a crib. Make his or her first bed a comfortable one, but also ensure its safety. The crib's bars should be vertical and close together, so there is no way that the child can climb out.
Aside from the bed, also put a chair for yourself in the room. When your baby wakes you up in the wee hours of the morning, you'll want a comfortable spot to sit and get him or her back to sleep. If you choose a white crib, maybe get a chair in a pastel hue to go next to it.
The color choices you go with are totally up to your preference, but for an infant's room, softer shades are often best. If you know what sex your child is, choose those pinks and blues accordingly. However, when you don't know if it's a boy or a girl, try yellows, greens and more neutral tones.
You'll also want a dresser for the baby's room. To go along with the lighter colors of the nursery, try a light-shaded wood for the piece. Perhaps match the color of this surface with that of the crib. A changing table is another nice amenity for the room, and you can match it with these items as well.
Make sure the room has plenty of windows, but that they have shades for when it's naptime and the sun's streaming inside.
These basics, coupled with radiant heating, will give your child a perfect first room.
