4 Steps to a Cozy Nursery Corner

Yes, yes, pick out a sturdy, safe and gorgeous crib for your sweet little babe, but please, oh, please don’t skimp on the other space that baby and you will be logging hours upon hours. We are talking about the baby rocker/glider area of your nursery. This cozy corner begs to be set up for supreme functionality and ultimate comfort. Here’s our simple 4-step formula for creating a cozy nursery corner plus plenty of design inspiration to create your own.

The Chair. Take into account you and your partner’s size when choosing this important piece. You’ll want to feel supported and stable in this chair. We recommend trying before buying whenever possible. And the debate between rocker vs. glider? That’s completely personal preference!

Great Lighting. I always vote for a floor lamp so that you can save space on your side table. A floor lamp casts a lovely glow that is helpful for reading storytime books and feeding baby. Pro tip: Use a lower wattage bulb to help soothe everyone’s eyes and create a peaceful atmosphere.

Side Table. You’ll have things. Lots of things. The sound machine, your current read, your baby’s books, water cups, baby bottles, pacifiers, a tissue box, your phone. Your things need a place to land that’s within arms reach.

Ottoman. There’s something about propping up your feet that can help with stability as you support baby while also maximizing your relaxation goals. Choose a soft but sturdy option, and you’ll have an instant extra perching spot for older kids, partners, etc.
