Here are 10 elements for a personalized and organized baby’s room:
- Bookcase: Storage for books and toys. Depending on your organizing preference, you can have:
- open storage and leave books and toys visible on shelves, or
- closed (hidden) storage and place books and toys in bins and containers
- Changing table: A changing table that doubles as a dresser can be used for many years.
- Area rug: A lovely soft space for playing.
- Curtains: Block out light at nap time and nighttime. Rested children make for happier parents. My clients who are the parents of young children certainly don’t need scientific proof to show them what children cost them in sleep, they just know.
- Artwork: I love Matte Stephen’s illustration of the Golden Gate Bridge.
- Seating: A chair and ottoman provides seating for feeding, reading, and chatting. Choose seating that is comfortable and will appeal to all age groups.
- Baby monitor: Technology is always improving. The WiFi Baby’s video and audio can be accessed on an iPhone, iPad and Android phone and tablet.
- Floor lamp: For when you don’t want the glare of overhead lighting.
- Side table: A surface to place items like bottles, reading glasses, burping cloths, etc.
