One of the most important times in a couple’s life is when they are expecting a new baby. So many decisions to make and many changes are on the way! An exciting change can be the planning of a new baby nursery. From choosing the colours, styles, layout, and furniture, this can be a fun project to get started on soon after the big news. Here are 4 cost-saving nursery room ideas to help get you started on the right track to your new room addition.
Of course, no new room addition is complete without furniture. From changing tables, cribs, dressers, and toy boxes, it doesn’t take long to accumulate a big purchase list. Since a new addition to the family can be an expensive one, consider shopping around at various second-hand stores and online marketplaces to grab some furniture at a discount. Items like these can be found at reduced prices, usually with very little wear, as children outgrow them quickly. Until you have your nursery ready, you can use Self Storage Cleveland to store the items for later use in the finished room.
Look online at any sites that have ‘room design’ apps. These apps (many are free) let you take pictures of the room you are looking at redesigning and let you change the area before you purchase anything. This allows you to see the finished product before you invest the money into buying. Once you have picked out the wallpaper or paint colours you like, you can search around at home improvement stores and often find closeout or clearance sales on similar colours and patterns. This is the perfect time to catch things on clearance and store them in a unit at Self Storage Cleveland until you can get around to repainting or designing.
Clothing and Accessories
It is nice to have a nursery filled with clothing and all the accessories that the baby will need when they come home. It’s possible to accomplish this without breaking the bank! Keep in mind, babies grow FAST! There is no need to spend a bundle on brand new name brands when you can shop at discount stores and look for resale clothing online. You can save hundreds of dollars and still have good quality clothing.
After you have your new nursery ready and the new addition has been home for some time, you will find that furniture and other things are quickly outgrown and replaced with more age-appropriate items. If you are planning on having more children now is a good time to use Self Storage Cleveland to store those purchases until you are ready to use them again. If you feel your family is complete, you can use the storage unit to accumulate a group of items to resell to recoup those investments.
