Having a baby is one of the most incredible things that can happen to you. Your life makes a drastic turn because of this new little bundle of love that requires constant attention. As a homeowner and a parent, you want your place to be in top shape for your new baby. Furthermore, you want their nursery to be perfect for the newest member of your family. You want your decoration, air quality, and toys to be perfect for them.
Here are a few ways to prepare a room for a nursery.
Replace your HVAC system.
Is it time to replace your HVAC system? If you want to make sure your nursery has the ideal indoor air quality for your newborn, you’ll want to either invest in a good HVAC maintenance service or replace the one you have with a new system—this includes AC units and furnaces. You will know that your HVAC system needs a refresher and lacks regular maintenance when you start showing allergies or asthma symptoms due to the buildup of debris and allergens like pollen, dust, and mold in the ducts, vents, and air filters.
Additionally, your energy bill will start to spike because your HVAC unit will be overworked and using more energy than needed to produce the same cool air throughout your house. Your baby needs fresh air to stay healthy, and this is the first step you can take to provide that for them.
Install a new carpet.
Apart from repairing or replacing your HVAC unit, you can change your carpets to a better and healthier option. You may be intimidated by the cost to install carpet in your home. However, brands like Plum Carpet offer affordable and durable carpets for any room in your home. In addition, they use a carpet pad that is soft and cushioned and keeps out dust, odors, mildew, and moisture from your durable plush carpet—all for free.
Moreover, they will install your new carpet at no additional cost in a seamless way, meaning you will not notice any seams. Their installers will also move your furniture for you so you can tend to other baby duties in the background. Plum Carpet offers carpets that come in different colors, textures, and materials, and they provide a free carpet cost estimate to make sure you pay the best price for the best carpet.
Pick a theme and color palette.
Additionally, you’ll want to choose a theme and color for your baby’s new nursery. This can be anything like cartoons, pastels, animals, mountains, under the sea, anything that inspires you and helps your baby sleep tight at night.
Set up a nursing area.
Inside your nursery, you’ll want to have an area that’s designated for nursing, breastfeeding, and rocking your baby. You’ll need your bottle or breastfeeding necessities, a comfortable nursing chair, wipes, and ointments, among other items. This space will be a serene space where you and your baby can connect and have memorable moments of motherhood.
Build a changing station.
Another space you should create in your baby’s nursery is a changing station. Changing stations are for changing your baby’s diaper as well as clothes. Some things you’ll need for this station are diapers (lots of them), creams, pacifiers, wipes, and a diaper pail. Be sure to always have these things available because the last thing you want is to head to the store with your baby’s diaper full to buy some more.
Create storage space.
Lastly, you’ll want to create a lot of storage space in your nursery. You can do this in the closet or against a wall. You’ll need all the space you can to keep your nursery organized, stocked, and livable for your baby.
These tips will help you prepare your nursery for your dearest infant.
