Babies are the main source of happiness in a family, that’s why most parents are excited to set up a nursery where they can witness their offspring grow little by little.
Now, building your kid’s room may be quite challenging due to renovation and decoration essentials. Remember, a baby’s nursery should be highly functional but does not have to be overly gaudy with embellishments.
If you are a first-time parent who wants to set up your baby’s nursery, here’s a checklist of essentials for creating a room and where to buy them in Metro Manila.
Wallpaper and Wall Coverings
The wallpaper or wall covering is the epitome of your nursery’s interior design. We do not recommend overdoing the theme; rather choose a design that creates a neutral, light, and calming environment for you and your baby.
For a wide selection of wallpaper products, check out DM WallPaper Philippines. The shop offers various collections of first-class imported vinyl wall coverings, abaca hand-woven wall coverings, and natural and decorative fabric-backed among others. It also offers wallpaper installation and peeling services. To check out its complete wallpaper collection, visit its website.
Rugs and Drapes
Aside from keeping your kids safe during playtime, rugs are helpful in lessening the noise coming from other rooms, while drapes are designed to manage the room’s lighting. Hence, both are essential when setting up your baby’s nursery. For rugs, Kiddi Company is dedicated to creating mats and rugs especially designed for toddlers. Each product is functional, aesthetic, and budget-friendly. Its Kiddi Cotton Rugs cost P2,610 while the Kiddi Mats starts at P1,499 depending on the size. The items come in different colors like pink, gray, white, blue, and beige.
There are plenty of shops that offer drapes online and around Metro Manila, but we recommend shopping at IKEA to ensure good quality baby nursery curtains.
Toys and Books
Educational toys and books are designed to help develop your child’s recognition and literacy skills through visuals and audio. When looking for toys and books for your baby’s nursery, the go-to shop of most parents is Tots N Toddlers.
You can find some of the latest trends and unique products for your kids such as wrist rattles, a hanging toy with a teether, magnetic drawing boards, interactive soft cloth books, and more.
From sleeping to feeding and diapering to storing items, you can easily get overwhelmed with the boutiques that offer essential furniture for your baby’s nursery. Fret not as you can score these essential pieces of furniture at Baby Company.
The store has convertible cribs, crib mattresses, toddler pillows, table and chair sets, playpens, toddler rockers, and a lot more. Baby Company houses famous brands such as Avent, Chicco, Aprica, Evenflo, Graco, Dr. Brown’s, Marcus & Marcus, Safety 1st, The First Years, Nuby, Hegen, Beaba, and Fisher Price among others
Once you are finished setting up your baby’s nursery, the last thing that you shouldn’t forget is the basic safety measure.
Since babies love to explore, jump, and crawl, sometimes we cannot control accidents, but parents can reduce the severity with baby-safe corner guards or edge bumpers. You can check out Bonjour Baby’s cushion guards made from high-grade nitrile rubber for maximum impact absorption. This product can be easily peeled off and is available for corners of tables, stairwells, aquariums, and cabinets.
