As your child gets older, the look of their room will start to reflect their age and interests. Changing a child’s room to keep it current doesn’t have to include throwing out the baby with the bathwater. Making small changes and making the décor more versatile can make any room look more current without getting rid of everything in it. Save money by making a few changes here and there, rather than changing the entire room every few years.
Linens and Tapestries
By implementing a few changes, any child will appreciate a new look in their room. Other useful updates can be done by placing other items from the home in the room, such as a comfy chair, or little knick-knacks. Change little things to make a big impact.

Preparing the nursery for your little one is one of the most exciting aspects of pregnancy. However, this is no small task. You’ll need it to be safe, of course, to prevent little ones from being injured. You’ll also need it to be comfortable because the chances are high that you’ll spend a lot of time there. Finally, you’ll want it to be stylish and appealing. Here are five tips for making your nursery safe, comfortable and stylish all in one fell swoop:
Install Safety Locks
You’ve probably heard plenty about baby-proofing your home, and the nursery should be no different. There are plenty of things to consider here, including making sure that items that may topple over (dressers, changing tables) are bolted securely to the wall. You can also purchase inserts that can be installed in dresser drawers to prevent pinching tiny fingers, and you will want to be sure that you reduce the need for electrical cords and keep the essential cords out of baby’s reach. These items are all available at your local department store and online from major retailers.
Consider Window Treatments
Your window treatments will say a lot about a room, but in the case of a nursery, they should be functional as well as beautiful. According to professionals who specialize in window treatments in Miami, panels that completely block out sunlight are popular in nurseries as they promote better sleeping habits at all hours of the day. However, you can pair these with sheers for when you want to let the sunshine in without giving up all of your privacy. For even more functionality, you can sew pockets up high on the curtain panels to store treasured stuffed animals. Be sure that any pulls and cords are kept out of baby’s reach; this is easy enough to achieve with stick-on hooks available from any department or office supply store.
Simple Furniture with Bold Bedding and Upholstery
Believe it or not, it is possible to go overboard when it comes to decorating a nursery. Designers recommend keeping things simple in terms of furniture like the crib and changing table, but dressing them up with bold fabrics. For instance, a simple wooden crib can be made more extravagant by adding a ruffled bumper for a girl, a striped bumper for a boy, or something in between for a more traditional unisex décor. Even something as simple as fitted sheets in bold colors can completely transform the look and feel of a nursery.
Choose the Right Lighting
Lighting is incredibly important in a nursery, and you’ll want to make sure that you provide several different types for different situations. For instance, you might need a bright light for playtime or changing time, but you’ll need a dimmer light when it comes to midnight feedings. One of the simplest and safest ways to accomplish this is with a dimmer switch, though lamps can also provide a beautiful ambience. Be sure to hide the cords and keep lamps up high when possible to prevent any dangers to small, curious hands.
Safe, Removable Wall Décor that Grows With Your Child
Finally, when it comes to your walls, there are several ways you can decorate. While a coat of paint is always helpful, be sure that you choose paints that are free of VOCs that can be harmful to babies. A great way to add some personality to a room is with removable wall décor. Vinyl decals come in a variety of sizes, colors and styles, and you can use them to spell out the baby’s name, add some timeless fleur-de-lis, or even put a favorite character in plain view that can be easily removed later.
While remodeling a nursery is no small project, you can cultivate a room that is safe, stylish, and functional, without making sacrifices in any area. Not only will you rest easy knowing that your baby will be safe to live, learn, and grow in the room, but you’ll be happy to have a comfortable, stylish getaway that will no doubt come in handy during the first few months of your child’s life.
If you have kids in your house, you can expect a certain amount of clutter, but the whole place doesn’t have to be a disorganized disaster. One of the best ways to ensure a tidy and orderly house is to provide a fun kid-friendly space for your little ones to enjoy. This way you can keeps messes contained and kids have a place that’s all their own separate from the shared rooms of the house. Take a look at these ideas for incorporating some unique playhouse designs into your own home.
Planning a playroom can be fun for everyone as long as you know what your kids will love and use often. Remember to incorporate as much fun as possible, be creative, and leave room for some organization too. Try to think like a kid when planning out their space.
So you’re interested in a medical career that allows you to work with infants and children. The first profession you probably think of is pediatrics. But, did you know that there are a ton of different options out there if you’re looking to get into child and infant medicine? Here are just a few of the many options and the type of schooling they require.
A pediatric nurse specializes in caring for children from infancy through adolescence. They work with pediatricians to provide routine screenings, check-ups, and examinations, measure vital statistics, take blood and urine samples, and give acute care to sick children. They are also crucial to making a young patient and their family feel comfortable. A pediatric RN completes advanced training in pediatrics through an accredited bachelor’s program and must pass a national licensing exam.
A speech and language pathologist helps children from infancy through adolescence overcome speaking or communication difficulties such as stuttering. They also work with young patients who have developmental or medical conditions, such as autism or a cleft lip and palate. This profession requires a master’s degree from an accredited program, at least 300 supervised clinical hours, and passing a nationally standardized test. Asha.org has more information about children’s speech and language therapy.
Most people associate sonography with prenatal care, but diagnostic medical sonography is a fast growing field that uses ultrasound technology to diagnose and treat medical conditions. A diagnostic medical sonographer operates the equipment, and often will work with infants and children to help a doctor diagnose a cardiovascular or musculoskeletal problem. Unlike other medical careers, only a bachelor’s or associate’s degree is needed from diagnostic medical sonographic schools.
With a big emphasis being placed on childhood obesity, pediatric nutritionists are in high demand. They are registered dietitians that are certified in pediatrics. A pediatric nutritionist works with children—with or without special needs—to plan menus for a balanced diet, encourage healthy food choices, and counsel parents and children on basic nutrition. A bachelor’s degree is usually required. State licensing requirements vary depending on the state. Continuing education credits are needed to maintain professional credentials.
These are just a few of the many different career options if you’re looking to work with children and infants. Good luck in whatever you choose!
