WHAT YOU SHOULD DO:

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Kids -

Pick re­us­able ba­sics

The es­sen­tials in a nurs­ery are your baby’s cot, chang­ing sta­tion and dresser – get these in colours that are eas­ier to match with other fur­ni­ture, ad­vises Mala. For ex­am­ple, a dresser with a chang­ing pad on top works as a chang­ing sta­tion, and can be used as a chest of draw­ers when your child is older.

Plan for the needs of your grow­ing child

Try to an­tic­i­pate what Ju­nior will need in his room as he grows – sock­ets for Wi-Fi or com­puter ca­bles, for in­stance. “The last thing you need is the has­sle of hav­ing a con­trac­tor come in ev­ery few years to add on things like elec­tri­cal sock­ets,” says Mala.

If you’re wor­ried about the dan­gers of hav­ing these sock­ets in your kid’s room, con­ceal them in child­proof cas­ings and re­move the cas­ings when the sock­ets are needed.
