Feelings of warmth, excitement and dreams of the best future are all part of the anticipation of welcoming a new arrival into your family. And this often includes pouring those feelings into the decoration of the nursery or bedroom. From your baby shower to your first few weeks with your new baby, all these moments are precious and priceless. You may find that you have everything you need well before your baby has arrived, or you may find that you need some items as you go. There’s no right or wrong way to prepare a nursery or your child’s bedroom.
One thing you may be thinking about well before baby’s arrival is the furniture in the nursery. There are a few basics that you may want as soon as your baby is born, and there are other items you can add later as you need them. A brilliant idea is to shop furniture collections, such as the Gemma Collection, from the outset. At Pottery Barn Kids, we make it easy and seamless to find the items you need for your nursery or child’s bedroom, organized into pages by collection. Styled and brought together by our top designers, furniture collections allow you to purchase an entire collection at once, mix and match collections for a unique and personalized look or choose only the pieces you need.
There are many tips, tricks and blog articles throughout the site that can help you plan, design and shop for your nursery or child’s bedroom. From baby shower ideas to must-have basics, such as bedding, you’ll find that there are many ways to help give you peace of mind about having the room ready in time while providing an elegant yet adorable space for your new baby. Baby’s sleeping arrangements are one of the first things to think about. You may want to opt for a bassinet that stays in your bedroom or the nursery, and move baby to a crib later, or you may want to start with a crib from day one. Even though it’s in the future, you may also want to consider whether you want a separate toddler bed or if you want to convert your crib into a toddler bed when your little one is ready. Within the Gemma Collection, there is a sturdy toddler bed conversion kit, so if you choose from furniture within this collection right from the start, you can keep the same style when you're ready to convert the crib.
Another important piece of furniture for your nursery is your child’s dresser. There are simply no right or wrong ways to style a room, and there are a lot of different dressers within collections from which to choose. If you are thinking about furniture ideas down the road, similarly as with a crib conversion kit, choose a type of dresser that works well when your child is an infant, but also when he or she grows into a toddler and even an older child. An extra-wide dresser with a topper set allows you to use the top of your dresser as a changing table, eliminating the need to buy an extra unit. If you’re short on space, this is a terrific idea to make your dresser useful. When your child is ready to be potty trained, simply take the topper set off the top of the dresser, and you have room for decor, keepsakes, bookends and more.
Color, of course, is also important as you decorate and style your nursery or child’s bedroom. Many of the items in the Gemma Collection have a simple white color, which is meant to complement existing decor while remaining gender neutral. You can also add one of the Gemma Collection’s dressers that is brightly designed with many different colors. Gender-neutral as well, match brightly colored furniture with rugs, window treatments and more for a joyful, cheery look.
