Tips for Creating a Minimalist and Simple Nursery in Your Mid-Century Fixer Upper
In case you are looking forward to making some adjustments to the fixer upper you have been handed down to for the sake of creating some room for nurseries and the like, you will have some parts affected while others may just remain as they were anyway. Some parts such as the paneling in the kitchen areas and living room may be removed for the sake of getting such rooms more airy and larger space as such making them more fresh. However, for the nursery needs, the paneling in the bedroom may be left. In most cases, your fixer upper will assume the format of the traditional ranch format with such long hallways with bedrooms on both.
Consider taking the first step in this effort at dealing with the carpeting needs there are in so far as you need to bring such a new look to your fixer upper is concerned. Remove the old carpets as some may have been laid more than fifty years ago, having not been changed ever since and as such may only be but threadbare however original they may have been when laid. By and large, you may just be surprised that what the carpets hide underfoot, as worn and old as they are, are but such beautiful glossy real hardwood. To add some beauty to the room, consider adding such items such as rugs of the right coloring such as pink area rugs right in front of the crib and these will go such a long way in making the nursery feel warmer.
After you are done with this, it may be just as advisable for you to consider adding a dresser to the nursery. If you happen to have the child unborn as yet and as such not knowing clearly what gender they may be, go with the plain and neutral items of furniture and accessories. The perfect color schemes for such are gray, white, green and white. You may visit an online shop for your purchase of such items of furniture. In between the crib and the dresser, consider adding a handmade swan baby rocker which can actually be made by a local craftsman in your area.
Consider having hung a handmade mobile as an ideal addition to the crib, this just being hung right above the crib. Such handmade items such as the handmade mobile can be simply made using paper star cutouts and quite simple rod and ribbon hanging style on them. These actually happen to be so ideal for the fact that they are so light and delicate as to be safely hung in the ceiling and as well high enough away from the reach of the child.
The other ideal addition of an item of furniture to bring to the room is an old rocker as the page shows.
