How to design a small baby’s room?
The arrival of a baby often rhymes with upheaval, change and… decoration. Where to put your baby to sleep, how to arrange his room? When the family grows, the organization of small apartments quickly turns into an (unpleasant) game of Tetris. Your walls are not expandable but good news, there are solutions and smart furniture that fit small spaces. Discover all our secrets to make your room becoming a warm cocoon.
Secret n°1: Choosing the right furniture
A crib rather than a bed
With its small size, the cradle takes up less space than a baby bed. Beyond the practical aspect, the cocoon format of the cradle reassures the baby. Another positive point for the cradle: its lateral swing. This millennial movement reminds the baby of his mother’s belly. Soothing effect guaranteed. Finally, many parents like to sleep with their baby during the first months. A cradle will slide more easily into your room.
A wall mounted changing table
Use the whole room, starting with the height of the walls. The wall-mounted changing table can be placed in the baby’s room, but also in your bathroom: a water point is always useful. The table closes after use, which also means less mess, more visual comfort. Indeed, you can store all the necessary items for washing and caring for your baby (diapers, liniment, square of change, cream, saline, thermometer …) in the shelves provided for this purpose. Our wall-mounted changing table can support up to 15 kilos, or about 36 months, the age of potty training. In short, it will accompany you from the first to the last day of diapers!
Shelves for your baby
Once again, use the height of the walls. To display your books, small shoes or pretty objects, think of the shelves to dress up the walls in a practical way..
A multi-tasking playmat
The floor mat has several uses:
- To keep your baby off the floor to avoid draughts
- To awaken your baby softly
- Be a reading mat for older children
Its small size fits vertically behind a door, a bed or in a corner after use. A must-have!
Secret n°2: Less is more
Whether you have little space or a castle to fit out, our philosophy remains the same: less but better.
In this case, see your small space as an advantage. It allows you to get back to basics, to purify, to de-clutter. Is that umpteenth trinket that you’re eyeing really necessary? That 3rd bedside lamp is cute, but not essential on your birth list. By focusing on the essentials, you’ll increase your budget for beautiful, long-lasting pieces to pass from one child to the next. You’ll also have fewer items to store, clean and maintain. In your new life as parents, saving time and especially energy will be one of your priorities (we’ve been there!). Avoid accumulation, save your mind and… your feet when you step on that damn useless toy in the middle of the night. Repeat with us: less is more!
Finally, your child’s room won’t be the only room to host your baby’s belongings. Your living spaces will be invaded too, like your living room and kitchen. Invest in nice pieces, starting with a beautiful bouncer. This key piece of baby furniture is used from birth and accompanies the child for many years. It is in this spirit that we have imagined our LEVO bouncer. An object as beautiful as the marvel it welcomes: your baby.Discover the iconic LEVO rocker
Other “space-saving” products we like
- The Yoyo stroller: light and foldable, it fits in a closet or a corner of your home without taking up too much space. It also fits in small elevators, train corridors, airplanes…
- The Flexi Bath: folds up after the bath. It is suitable for children up to 3-4 years old. Its cap is a thermometer and it dries your child alone. No, we’re kidding about that last point (sorry)… On the other hand, you will be able to take it everywhere with you whether it is on vacations at grandma’s or on a weekend in Deauville, Biarritz or Marseille (cross out the unnecessary destination).
