Tips for Twins and Triplets
Transform a larger room in your house, such as the master bedroom or formal living room, into a nursery for two or three years.
If you have the space, include a sofa bed or daybed in your nursery, so an adult can sleep there when necessary.
When there are more than two babies, have at least two changing tables.
Use every inch of closet storage by dividing and organizing it for each baby. You can leave closet doors off for easy access or replace doors
with easy-to-move fabric panels.
Add extra storage with armoires, bookcases, trunks, and toy boxes (the latter two with safety hinges). Think about using an unusual piece, such as a china cabinet or buffet, and painting it to match the rest of the room. Use wall-mounted safety anchors on tall pieces to prevent tipping.
Individualize each baby's space, perhaps with different sheets, toy displays, or mobiles.
Create a special magical place for the both of you to enjoy
When planning a shared space for a baby, function is one of the primary aspects
of design. The baby needs a place to sleep, be changed, rocked and fed,
and don't forget storage for the babys needs, most of which you will want to keep within easy reach. You can treat the nursery areas as a continuation of the larger room, selecting furnishings that blend with the existing decor, or you can give
baby's area its own distinct character.
Essential Nursery Furnishings
Crib, Changing Table, Chest of Drawers, Comfortable chair or rocker, side table,
general lighting, Table lamp, Mobile.
Whether the baby is sleeping in a lavish suite or cozily tucked into a
reconfigured corner of an existing room, the decor can be
whimsical, practical, sleek, ornate or historic.
Most of the time, nursery decor starts with the crib or cradle.
With the many options available, this piece of furniture can be chosen to work with the size of the room and blend with other furnishings and the color scheme.
Walls, window treatments and bedding can sport identical designs,
complementary colors, or the same colors but different patterns. A solid backdrop can be jazzed up with a stenciled or wallpaper border or mural, or simply with the addition of hanging art.
An innovative and unique angle on changing tables! Allows you to change your infant with feet pointing towards you. Abundant storage space on either side of the changing area and below. Takes up only approximately 30" x 30" area in the corner. May be accessorized with nursery baskets. Can be used as a storage/book shelf or TV/media center when your child outgrows the changing table.
If children can't reach their belongings, they have to rely on adults to get what they need, or they may endanger themselves by trying to climb up and grab what they want.
Safe storage for baby and toddler:
open chests, plastic bins, low shelves, also
tiered baskets, suspended by a single chain
from the ceiling, are both attractive

around windows can have a dramatic
