Any pregnancy can be very exciting. If you are having twins, it can be somewhat overwhelming. Although most parents are prepared to decorate a nursery for one baby, they often do not know what should be done if they need to decorate for twins. Since you will probably want to keep the babies in the same room due to convenience, it is important to have a good idea of how to decorate a nursery for twins. Here are some tips on how to decorate a nursery for the twins in your life.
Begin Decorating the Nursery Early
The moment that you find out that you are having twins, you should begin preparing for the nursery. Since the pregnancy will be so advanced, you will want to make sure that the nursery gets done before the twins arrive. You will also be likely to feel more strained than a woman who is not carrying twins. Decorating the nursery early is the best thing that can be done.
One Crib vs. Two Cribs
One of the main factors that you are going to need to take into consideration when you begin decorating a nursery for twins is whether you want to purchase one crib or two. Two cribs are what most parents opt for, despite the fact that twins tend to feel happier when sleeping with one another. There are also cribs out there which are designed for twins, so it may be a good idea to purchase one of these. It will allow the babies enough space to sleep with one another and will also be small enough to fit into a small nursery.
Dressers and Changing Tables
When choosing dressers and changing tables, you are also going to need to make the decision between one and two. One dresser is usually suitable enough for both twins’ clothing, especially since they are probably going to be sharing clothing in the beginning. One changing table is also going to be necessary. You are not going to be changing more than one baby at once, so there is really no reason to purchase two changing tables.
Nursery Décor For Twins
Depending on the gender of the babies, you are probably going to have mixed feelings about the type of décor that you choose for the nursery. If they are both boys or both girls, it may be somewhat easier to choose a nursery theme. Otherwise, it may be a good idea to select a nursery theme that is suitable for both genders. Character or animal themed nurseries on walls that have been painted a neutral color is usually a great choice.
Decorating a nursery for twins can seem somewhat challenging but it really does not need to be. Although you are going to need to make the decision between one and two much more often, decorating for twins is very similar to decorating for one baby. As long as you begin planning early, the nursery is going to look fabulous!
