Baby and Kids Room Essentials: Creating a Safe and Stylish Space

When designing a baby or kids room, it’s important to consider both functionality and aesthetics. From choosing the right furniture and bedding to selecting the perfect wall colour, there are many decisions to be made. To help you create a safe, comfortable and stylish space for your little one, here are some essentials to keep in mind.

Functional Requirements:

• Cot: A safe and sturdy cot is the centrepiece of any baby’s room. Make sure to choose a cot that meets current safety standards and fits your budget.

• Changing Table: A designated changing area with plenty of storage for nappies, wipes, and other essentials is a must-have for any baby room.

• Dresser: A dresser provides storage for clothes, linens, and other items, and can also be used as a changing surface if needed.

• Rocking Chair or Glider: A comfortable place to rock and soothe your baby is an important addition to any baby’s room.

• Toy Storage: As your child grows, they’ll accumulate more and more toys. Invest in a toy chest or shelving unit to keep their playthings organized.


• Colours: Soft pastel colours like light blue, pink, and yellow are popular choices for baby rooms, but you can also choose a bolder hue like red or green for an older child for a more unique look. A soft neutral colour with a wallpaper feature wall will bring in a theme or personality. Try and keep the colours more calming and gently playful in the bedroom, and the more playful exciting colours in a rumpus or play room.

• Styles: From classic to modern, there are many styles to choose from when designing a baby or kids room. Consider the rest of your home’s decor and select a style that fits in with your overall aesthetic.

• Wall Decor: Wall art, decals, and murals can add interest to a baby or kids room. Choose items that are age-appropriate and match your colour and style choices.

• Bedding: From cot sheets to quilts, bedding is an important aspect of a baby or kids room. Select bedding that is soft, comfortable, breathable and easy to clean. Hemp or Bamboo are great choices, take a look at our hemp cot sheets here at Sage Connection.

In conclusion, designing a baby or kids room can be a fun and exciting process. By focusing on both functionality and aesthetics, you can create a space that is both safe, comfortable and stylish for your little one. Don’t be afraid to get creative and choose items that reflect your personal style, as your child’s room is a reflection of their unique personality.
