Nothing is more enjoyable than designing a coastal play and nursery room for kids. It gives adults the chance to play with a different set of colors, textures, and patterns. When done right, it will yield results that last well into the future.
Ideas for Designing a Coastal Play and Nursery Room for Kids
Keep the look transitional. Don’t make the mistake of going too cutesy, which requires a re-design as soon as baby becomes a child. Instead, keep your design as transitional as your children. Incorporate nautical themes that can evolve from baby to child to teenager. Consider using a bunkbed with a trundle. The trundle is ideal for toddlers who will migrate to the bunk beds when they’re ready. Plus, bunk beds are great for hosting sleepovers, friends, and overflow guests.
Use versatile furnishings. Instead of splurging on a changing table that won’t be used for more than a year or two, purchase contemporary furnishings that serve multiple purposes. With the addition of a changing pad, Lily’s Linen Cabinet starts out as a changing station, complete with drawers to house diaper accoutrement, and will eventually become a bedroom dresser ready to house your children’s favorite treasures.
Area rugs for warmth and color. Your little ones will spend a fair amount of time on the floor – rolling, crawling, reading, playing – so make sure they have a safe and stylish surface on which to do so. Our hand-loomed, striped rugs are 100% cotton making them soft and easy to clean.
