Design a Dream Bedroom for Your Toddler – 5 Easy to Follow Tips

It is so fun to create the perfect nursery. Often times, soon-to-be mothers enjoy the last few weeks before their baby comes adding finishing touches to the nursery. It can be just as fun to create the perfect dream bedroom for your toddler. And, chances are, your toddler will appreciate it more.

If you want to design a dream bedroom for your toddler, follow these five easy steps. You can ensure that your toddler enjoys their bedroom instead of it being the most dreaded room in the house.

1. First thing first…get rid of the crib. You can’t have the center piece of a toddler room be a baby crib. That completely defeats the purpose of a “toddler” room. You should transition your child into a toddler bed if he or she is able to climb out of his or her crib. You should also start using a toddler bed if your child is three feet tall, or taller. Experts also recommend that you move your child into a toddler bed once he or she is eighteen months old.

2. The new bed. Buy the toddler bed a few weeks in advance to making the transition. You can talk the new bed up and really get your child excited to sleep in a “big boy” or “big girl” bed. Tell you child that they can sleep in the new bed once they are ready to be a big boy or girl. This will help get them excited and make the transition a lot easier. Rocky Mountain Mattress can also help in this area, as we can build you a custom all natural latex toddler mattress.

3. The same position. Your child’s crib was probably in the same position the entire time your baby slept in it. If this is the case, your child is used to sleeping in particular part of the room. Put the toddler bed in the same position that the crib was in. This will help your child be more comfortable in the new bed.

4. Involvement. Once you have made the transition from the crib to the toddler bed, you are ready to start designing the room. Involve your child. He or she will enjoy their room a lot more if they are able to take an active role in helping design the room. Let your child choose the colors and the theme.

5. Bedding and accessories. Let your child pick his or her bedding and accessories. You can help guide your child into picking things that match, but they will enjoy the decision-making process. Choose bedding and accessories that match and that will give life to the room. This can be exciting for both you and your child.

If is so fun to design children’s rooms. You can make the transition from a nursery to a toddler room an easy one if you follow these steps. Make sure to involve your child to help him or her get excited about becoming a big kid.
