If your family is about to have a new baby, it’s time for congratulations. However, it’s also time to start redesigning one of the rooms in your home to make it appropriate for a nursery. The staff at Unique Flooring, a leading provider of flooring in San Diego, has a few tips to help you design the perfect nursery.

  1. Install an Interior Window
    A window between the nursery and the hallway, or even your bedroom, can make it easier to hear when your baby is in need of assistance. The window doesn’t need to be enormous, and it can even be installed in the top corner of one of the walls.
  2. Have Permanent Carpets Installed
    Carpet is softer and safer than wood floors for babies to walk and crawl around. If you already have Berber carpet in San Diego, be sure to maintain it regularly through vacuuming and steam cleaning.
  3. Put Up Shelves on the Wall
    Not only do shelves provide convenient storage for infant supplies, but they can also add a whole new style to the infant’s room. You can store the baby’s clothing, towels, and other accessories and simultaneously compliment the overall appearance of the room. Be careful where the shelves are installed to reduce the risk of items falling in the crib.
  4. Add Cubbies and Drawers
    Like shelves, cubbies and drawers allow for more organization. However, these items can be used to store toys rather than having them spread out around the room. Cubbies conveniently keep the toys in one place while not being easily accessible for the baby when you aren’t in the room.
  5. Buy Furniture for Sitting
    A chair or something similar provides easy access to a place to sit while feeding, rocking, or playing with the baby. There’s no need to walk all the way to another room. You can also sit and watch the baby crawl around and play in the nursery without restricting him or her to the crib each time he or she isn’t being held by anyone in the nursery.
