30+ Delightful Shared Nurseries For a Toddler and a Baby
Baby Nursery Ideas - Many young families with a toddler decide to have one more kid today, and if you don't have a separate room for him or her, it's time to make your nursery a shared one! Designing such a space may be a bit difficult cause your children are of different age and have different needs. If you have enough space, divide the room into toddler and baby area. Put a crib and a changing table in the baby space and a bed for your toddler in his or her space. Divide their toys, too, because some of toddler's ones may be dangerous for babies. Get inspired by the ideas below and create a wonderful space for your little ones!
Styles And Color Schemes
Will it be a whimsy or a more basic space? If you want something whimsy, choose a theme for the room - some cartoons, animated films, characters and other stuff can inspire you to create a space. If you want something more common, choose a style: rustic, Scandinavian, modern, contemporary, minimalist, farmhouse and so on. As for colors, neutrals always work well, and pastel will make the room cuter and softer. Dramatic shades aren't very popular for kids' rooms, they will make it look too bold but some bright touches here and there will cheer up the room.
The main things you need are two beds - a crib and a toddler bed, and to create a cohesive space, you can take matching ones, while contrasting pieces will help you visually divide the space. Storage furniture is also necessary, and a stylish dresser and a wardrobe will do. A changing table is welcome for the baby, and some chairs and armchairs are cool for parents.
As this is a kids' room, you'll need a lot of toys that will also become part of decor, and you can create gallery walls of kids' artwork or their photos, hang colorful buntings and garlands, rock bright lamps and lampshades and spruce up the room with colorful and printed textiles. Have fun!
