Setting up your baby nursery is the fun part. It’s easy to get carried away or overwhelmed by the huge amount of choice out there when it comes to baby furniture, but you don’t actually need it all. When it comes to creating a beautiful, calm, sleep centric space, we’re here to help you get everything you need!

Baby nursery ideas

If you type in ‘baby nursery ideas’ into Google, you’ll be bombarded with images and Santa Clause style lists full of ideas for redecorating. It can get pretty overwhelming wondering how to set up your nursery for your new arrival. If you want to theme your baby nursery, then go for it. But if you want to keep things simple and minimal that’s also okay.

Some popular baby room ideas we like are to:

  • Choose a colour theme
  • Centre the room around a cool light or mobile
  • Use rugs to add colour and warmth to the room
  • Decorate your changing table station with artwork
  • Think a little long-term and install a bookshelf
  • Keep it bright and light

Baby nursery decor

Opt for decor that’s well-made and will take your baby from newborn into the toddler age with ease. The last thing you’re going to feel like doing with a baby is redecorating constantly, so fit out your baby room with well-made furniture. Investing in a cot rather than a bassinet can be a good idea for this reason as it lasts a lot longer. Set up an area in the room suitable for playtime, so that when it’s time for tummy time or your baby is able to sit up, they’ve got a fun little play area sorted. You can make an area like this easily with aSNOO Smart Sleeper Bassinet.

  • Charlie Crane Kumi Bassinet Crib: This is 100% unisex, but we think it would be especially perfect in a baby girl’s room thanks to being so effortlessly stylish and elegant. It also comes with a mattress, so one less thing to buy!
  • 7pm Linen Fitted Bassinet Sheets: We’d stock up on some of these gorgeous linen sheets in pretty pastel shades.
  • Love to Dream Stage 1 Swaddle: Send them to sleep in a beautiful swaddle bag.
  • Cam Cam Copenhagen Muslin Swaddle Wrap: Made from 100% organic cotton, we can’t resist the beautiful peony pink for our little girls.
  • YogaSleep Whish Continuous White Noise Machine: Again, totally unisex and we’d get it for our baby boys just as much as for our girls. Invest in a sleep aid for bub that will have untold benefits for you too! See our best white noise machines.

    Baby Boy Nursery

    And if we had to pick our top 5 for a baby boy nursery, we’d go for:

  • Leander Cot: Again totally unisex, we’re obsessed with this cot. It would make for a great nursery room centerpiece and better yet it can even last until your child is seven years old!
  • Leander Cot Mattress: The mattress is sold separately if you opt for the Leander option. It’s made from high quality cold foam and custom made to fit perfectly inside the Leander Cot.
  • ErgoPouch Cocoon Swaddle Bag: Made from organic cotton and bamboo it’s TOG rated and designed to keep them at a safe temperature all night long.
  • Matty Change Mat in Cappuccino: Add a neutral toned changing mat to their room like this one from Leander. It’s a best-seller for a reason!
  • Pop Ya Tot Muslin Swaddle: Add a pop of colour and stimulate their mind with this beautiful swaddle with a crane illustration designed on top.
