Your Nursery Set Up Sorted
At Banabae, we are all about creating sunny, sustainable nursery wares that are vintage-inspired and ethically made. Here we cover the important elements of creating a practical yet beautiful nursery set up for mama and bub to enjoy.
You may start out with a bassinet, but the cot is often the big investment piece for the nursery. Our absolute fave is the Plyroom Ava Life Stages Cot (pictured above). This thoughtfully designed piece makes a beautiful cot and then converts to a toddler bed and then a desk! Made by a local Aussie business from sustainable birch ply, this is certainly a piece worth investing in.
Style it with Banabae:
Bedding and sleepwear:
Nappy change area:
This is where all the fun happens! You can use a change table or a chest of drawers if you need to maximise space.
Here is what you will need:
- A changing mat
- 3-5 changing mat covers. Our Banabae bassinet sheets fit perfectly (pictured above).
- A nappy bin
- Storage for towels / wipes / cloth nappies / nappy creams etc
- A mobile can also become useful in this area to distract older babies once they start to wriggle away and resist changes.
Handy storage items:
- A chest of drawers with dividers
- Bookcase or shelf
- Cane baskets for general items
This is a place where you will be spending a lot of time, so do your research and find something that suits you. We love a rocking chair for babies that need a bit of movement to soothe.
Style and decor:
If you want to create an overall consistency to the look and feel of your nursery, it helps to pick out a theme, style or colour to start with.
Not sure where to start? Here are a few easy ways:
- Choose a palette of 2-3 colours
- Buy a bedding set as inspiration and establish a theme from there
- Create a feature wall with paint and/or decal
- Buy a feature piece such as an artwork and use the colours and theme to build on
