Preparing The Baby’s Room In Your New Home If You Are Expecting

Have you just signed the papers from your sales representative on the new Canadian home that you just purchase? Congratulations on being new homeowners. Are you now happily expecting? That deserves a second round of congratulations.

If you are expecting and have just moved into your new home, you may be experiencing feelings of being intensely overwhelmed. This new home obviously has a room for your baby, but this may be your only chance to do this right from the very start of the process. So without any further ado let us get started.


Start Your Planning Now

Preparing The Baby’s Room In Your New Home If You Are ExpectingYou can start planning for how you are going to use the space even before you buy anything for the room. You can think about where you would like to put the dresser. Which direction you would like the diaper changing table to be facing, and which part of the room you would like to set up the crib. Past that, you can start planning for bookcases, rocking chairs, and any other items you would like to have to complete the room so that you know where everything will go before you buy it. There are few things worse than getting excited to decorate a baby room, going to the store and buying everything you want, and then having to return something or put it in another area of the house because it simply won’t fit in your baby’s room.


Start Buying The Big Things First

There are certain things that you know that you are going to need no matter what. If you are newly pregnant and do not known the sex of your baby, then you can start purchasing things that are gender neutral or things that can easily be decorated for baby boys or baby girls. You know for certain that you are going to need a crib, a changing table, and a carseat, and a baby carrier. You will likely also be needing a stroller and a high chair. Get these items first because you know that they will be the most expensive as well as gender neutral. It is always better to get the big items first when you are able to put them together than it is to wait and possibly struggle just a bit more.


Start The Process Of Personalization

Fast forward a few weeks if you started this process of preparing the baby’s room early and you will find yourself in one of two positions. You will either know the sex of your baby because you have chosen to know or you will choose to keep your baby’s sex a secret until they are born. This will make a big impact on how you choose to personalize your baby’s room.

If you choose not to know the sex of your baby, you will need to buy gender neutral baby items to personalize their room. This could be anything from animal themes, nature themes, starry night themes, or color themes. You cannot go wrong with yellows, browns, greys, greens, and oranges. Depending on the theme you may even be able to get away with blues and reds that fit both baby girl and baby boy themes. If you choose to know the sex of your baby then the process of personalization can get even more detailed. Not only will you be able to choose a theme for your baby, you will also be able to plan for a name and have that name printed on items from paintings and pictures to baby blankets and onesies. You may also be able to do this if you have picked a gender neutral name.
