Creating a Nursery with Your Big Kid in Mind

In their popular book Baby Bargains, Alan & Denise Fields estimate that the average soon-to-be-parents will spend $2,000 on furniture, bedding and accessories for a new nursery. That’s a lot of money for a room that your child may only be in for 2-3 years before transitioning to a “big girl/boy room!” How can you save money while still buying high-quality products? Here are a few tips to help you plan ahead:


- Purchase a convertible crib that will convert from crib to double bed headboard and footboard. USA Baby Nashville has many great options to choose from!


- Add color and personalization to the nursery with inexpensive things: a $30 gallon of paint can easily be painted over if you get tired of it in a few years. Lampshades, paintings, picture frames and other decorative accessories can also be inexpensively traded out or upgraded as your child grows.


- Choose a high-quality rocker/glider in a neutral color that can later be used in your family room or playroom. Just because you used it first in the nursery doesn’t mean that it can’t be a welcome and comfortable addition to another part of your house in a few years. Visit us in-store or online to see all our gliders and rockers!


- Choose matching crib and “big boy/girl bedding” in classic styles. When it’s time to move your child out of his or her crib, you won’t need to search for new bedding to match the current room décor or redecorate the room to match new bedding. Check out ourJoJo Designs bedding at USA Baby Nashville. For girls, the Isabella Collection features a black and white damask pattern with a hot pink soft minky fabric that will be the perfect starting point for an easy-to-accessorize room. For boys, the Dinosaur and Camo Collections are classic designs that will take your son into his pre-teen years.
