Relax And Design Your Nursery Room The Easy Way

This page is a big picture nursery room guide to help you to find your way around this site and to get your thoughts in order before you begin nursery decorating.

Each step of the guide is dealt with in detail under the relevant section headings on the left navigation bar. But read the baby nursery design guide first. It is packed with vital information for getting your nursery decorating project off on the right foot.


Make yourself a lovely hot cuppa, beg, borrow or steal a muffin (from hubby maybe?) and come with me as I outline the main baby nursery design steps!

Planning Your Nursery Room Design

You can save yourself plenty of headaches and stress, not to mention money, by planning your nursery room design before you start decorating.

Your top priority in designing any little person's space should be safety. If this is your first baby, you are used to thinking about the world from the perspective of someone much bigger - you!

Things that are quite harmless for adults, can be a minefield of danger for someone who, at birth, will quite comfortably nestle in a space the size of your hands.

Without being paranoid, you really do need to start looking for danger around every corner, and bear your baby's safety in mind through every step of the nursery room design process. Think small and fragile.

Check out my complete nursery safety checklist to find out everything you need to know about how to protect your baby in the nursery.

Next, your nursery should be as easy and pleasurable to use as it is beautiful.

We've all seen photos of those picture perfect designer nurseries, and they look great, I admit. But many of them just aren't practical. My baby would pull this place apart in five seconds flat!

Make sure you create your baby room design with practicality in mind.

Beyond this there are eight parts to planning your nursery room design before you even touch a paint brush:

Preparing For Baby
