Start With A Mood Board

A mood board might not be the most organization-forward tool, but it's a great way to add color, life, and beauty to the baby nursery you envision. Much like a hardcopy Pinterest board, your "mood" board should include influences, colors, patterns, and other easily referenced clippings, printouts, and ideas that you can readily reference to interpret and organize your vision. A mood board is the first step in transferring your imagination to paper and serves as the spiritual and physical intermediary to your eventual completed room.

Consider The Shape Of The Room And Proximity To Yours

Whatever floor plan and room count your Delray Beach property has, you're never going to want the newborn to be far from your sight. The nursery should always be one door away from your bedroom, for a multitude of reasons. Beyond safety, you'll want there to be little between you and a crying baby should they wake overnight. The shape will also matter, as you'll want the crib positioned properly near windows and light sources, and find the best place to place storage.

Don't Overspend On "Temporary" Items

We know the temptation is there, especially for first-time parents. The collection of outstanding shops, boutiques, and local craft markets only intensifies the desire to spoil your newborn with the finest linens, toys, and accessories. However, did you know, that a crude but somewhat reliable test, known as the "2x2" indicates that a majority of humans are around half their overall height by age 2? Needless to say, the little ones grow fast. The time when you should be saving money, whether to pay off your mortgage, protect your child's future, or plan for another is in the earliest days of their lives. Oftentimes parents will spend big on sneakers, hats, and little accessories that, while providing the perfect photo op, may wind up costing thousands and be used seldom before the baby is onto the next size. Before you know it they'll be walking, talking, and forming their own thoughts and opinions. Save big early by not wasting on items that will be quickly outgrown.

Go Big On Quality Storage

If there's one place to spend more, it's in quality storage. There will always be a need for it, so your baby won't age out of it like their clothes. Quality, secure, protective storage is useful for any purpose but is especially crucial when organizing the necessities for your child. Somehow, despite the often frighteningly disorganized mess that may be mom's purse, the diaper bag remains a pillar of organizational stability. The same tends to ring true when comparing the likes of the bathroom vanity drawers to the storage within your baby nursery. Quality storage can prevent losses, whether to time spent searching for that elusive item or through the wear and tear items endure over time.

Layer Lighting, Textiles, and Soft Textures

The last two entries in our blog tie in with the first perfectly. The mood board is where you'll see the patterns, colors, and favored items shine through. When creating a sanctuary for a newborn, lighting and textures are the foremost responsibilities. The child should be able to enjoy natural sunlight in the mornings and even during naptime, but a room that is too bright or too dark can disrupt their circadian rhythm, which is crucial to their development. Remember, that color and what we see are the result of light bouncing off varying objects at different depths, blending together these refractory rays into our three-dimensional world. There is no place where this matters more than in the eyes of your newborn baby.

Match With Window Treatments

Last but not least, are the window treatments. Curtains are normally the most popular among Delray Beach baby nurseries, due to a few key factors. Firstly, is their delicate texture. Curtains blow gently with the incoming breeze, filter light, and dust, and provide privacy while not blocking light altogether. The gentle filtration of light and soft textures allow for the layering of light as discussed above. These treatments should not only reflect the proper thickness and opacity needed to find the right combination but also match the color scheme of the furniture, walls, and doors.
