Nurseries Fit for a Royal

It’s been a busy couple of months for the royals. But not to be overshadowed by the recent big royal wedding was the news of the arrival of Kate and William’s third child not too long ago. Over the past few months, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have had us all guessing about the new royal nursery. Will it be classic and timeless or a fun character theme?

There’s no denying it that creating the perfect nursery for the arrival of a new little one can be both stressful and exciting. But how do you make sure your new baby’s nursery is the perfect calming and welcoming environment?

National homebuilder and experts in new spaces, Miller Homes, has these tips.

Add a splash of colour

Naturally, colour is a good place to start when designing the perfect nursery.

A lick of paint really can make all the difference, so why not opt for pale pastel colours to ensure your little one’s nights are filled with peaceful candy dreams? Don’t feel like going the full works? Try painting walls in two different contrasting colours instead?


Create a restful haven

A nursery should be a peaceful sanctuary for any new little one and with sleep being an essential ingredient to the growth and development of healthy tots, it’s no wonder that many parents put a lot of thought into channeling serenity into their baby’s nursery.

A calming atmosphere isn’t just beneficial for sleep, but creating a tranquil environment can also help your little one settle better when it comes to feeding time.

Comfort is key

Experiment with plush, soft furnishings in mixed patterns for an extra cosy touch. A comfortable nursing chair complete with a specialist nursing pillow can make all the difference when feeding newborns. Plump, inviting cushions can also add a pop of fun and colour to the room whilst also providing extra back support for those long nursing sessions.

Incorporate a few sensory touches

Babies are mostly sensory little things so what about adding a little bit of fun into their room with a ‘Hungry Caterpillar’ theme and musical mobile? The bright colours and patterns will keep them entertained and when they reach toddler age, can be used to aid their learning and development.


Get creative with storage

Look into creative storage options to stow away changing mats, baby changing bags, baby carriers, baby sleeping bags and extra blankets neatly. Under-cot drawers and mini chests work well to ensure such items are easy to reach but out of sight when not in use.

Designing a warm and welcoming nursery is always an exciting experience and, of course, there is no ‘one rule fits all’. Essentially, no matter what colour or pattern you opt for; remember it’s all about creating a safe, comforting and loving haven for the new addition to your family.
