Gone are the days of cartoon characters and garish color combinations in baby's nursery. Today's nurseries are softer, more subtle, and rooms that convey a sense of relaxation and peace. We love this nursery trend, as it gives both baby and mom a restful retreat within the home. We carry a variety of curtains online that are perfect for today's sophisticated nursery, but one thing you'll want to make sure your nursery has is blackout curtains.
Blackout curtains block out the light more effectively than other curtains. This can help with sleep training, when you are trying to get baby on the right sleep schedule. Blocking out the light may encourage your little one to sleep longer, too, since the bright light of the early morning sun won't signal them that it's time to wake up. Blackout curtains don't have to be heavy, boring drapes, either. We especially love this set of Westwood Nursery Blockout Curtains . These curtains are a lovely light white color with a color block of gray along the bottom--a popular color for today's nurseries. These curtains are sophisticated without being too old for baby and are something that can grow along with your child as their room evolves. These custom curtains are available in our online store in pencil pleats, reverse tabs or eyelets in the width and height that you need.
Need other ideas for your nursery? Here are some must-have items:
- A comfortable rocking chair. Don't discount how much time you'll be spending in baby's room, especially at night. A nicely padded rocking chair can give you and baby a cozy place for feedings and rocking back to sleep. Try coordinating your chair with your curtains for a more put-together look.
- A changing station. Some families use them, and some find the floor to be just as convenient. A changing table (or a converted dresser) can help you keep changing supplies organized as well as give you a place to store those often-needed clothing items like clean onesies and socks.
- A plush rug. A nice rug on the floor in a coordinating color to your nursery decor adds instant design credibility to your room. Not only that, it gives your feet a cozy place to stand for all the late-night feedings and changes. Plus, as baby gets older it gives them a soft place to explore and play.
