6 Tips for an Ikea Scandinavian Style Baby Room
The arrival of a new family member is always a cause for joy. Not only because of the experience of paternity, something that cannot be compared to any other experience, but also because it is a perfect moment to reorganize the home, redecorate and adapt the spaces to a little one whose needs, during the first months and years of life, will condition, to a large extent, the characteristics of the design of your house.
Although popular wisdom often says that children “come with a loaf of bread under their arms”, it is not superfluous to adjust the budget when preparing the baby’s room. The economic possibilities of each one are not the only thing that must be taken into account when planning the decorative project. The rapid evolution of children’s needs makes it essential to adjust the budget in order to be able to assume new investments in the short or medium term.
In this book of ideas we propose a journey through inspiration based on the maximums of functionality, design and price of one of the most popular companies in the sector. Discover how to decorate a baby room with IKEA furniture and give the new family member a luxurious Scandinavian welcome.
1. Two essentials: the baby cot and the crib mattress.
If there are two elements that cannot be missing in the decorative project of your baby’s room these are the cradle and the bed. The possibilities offered by IKEA are the most practical and attractive, always with that unmistakable touch of Scandinavian style so characteristic of the Swedish multinational. In this picture the combination includes the HENSVIK baby cot with the essential GULLIVER changing mat. The design of the latter, which includes two drawers under the care surface, is perfect for maximum optimization of use. And to select the right mattress for your baby’s crib here is a list of the best recommendations.
2. The KALLAX shelf and the MALM chest of drawers
The IKEA catalogue is full of resources that, although present in many homes, are perfect for creating spaces with their own personality. In the top ten of the Swedish brand we find two pieces that constitute storage solutions that fit in the baby’s room as well as in any other room. The KALLAX shelf and the MALM chest of drawers are icons of the multinational, with simple and functional lines that will perfectly solve your organizational needs in your baby’s bedroom.
You can also choose from different colours.
3. BRANÄS baskets for your KALLAX shelf
The versatility of KALLAX shelving makes every part unique. This chameleon-like nature not only responds to its colours, dimensions or finishes but also to the wide selection of accessories with which you can complete its functionality. When it comes to decorating your baby’s room, BRANÄS wicker baskets are perfect for giving the room an unquestionable warmth. Choose how many you want to include.
With the idea of customizing your KALLAX shelving, you can always opt for more conventional formulas. In addition to the BRANÄS baskets that we showed you in the previous image, the Swedish multinational offers alternatives that adapt to your needs.
4. SKUBB boxes to organize the drawers
The IKEA SKUBB series is specially designed to meet the needs of home tidiness. As part of the decoration of the children’s room you can opt for this practical set of six boxes, ideal for keeping the drawers of your MALM chest of drawers perfectly tidy. Clothes, footwear, diapers, accessories… What do you need to keep? You can include them in your project.
5. STRANDMON armchair
The first months of your baby’s life will be accompanied by long sleepless nights and care for which it is advisable to be prepared in the best conditions. Seen this way, it is not superfluous to include in the design of your little one’s bedroom a piece that allows you to attend to him comfortably. Whether you have to spend hours watching over his dreams, attending to his food or simply watching him play, the STRANDMON armchair is a perfect complement.
Green, grey, beige, light turquoise… Which one is yours?
IKEA’s different furniture proposals offer a wide range of possibilities for decorating your child’s room. You can opt for a particular series or flood the room with nuances by choosing pieces to your liking. This composition combines the HENSVIK cot we showed you earlier, with the comfort of the STRANDMON earmuff armchair, an element that has been contributing for over 60 years to create space with personality and charm.
6. The unmistakable HEMNES chest of drawers
The popularity of the comfortable HEMNES has nothing to envy to its counterpart of the series MALM. The main difference is that the first has handles (as you can see in the picture), a detail that you can customize to your liking.
As part of the decoration of this baby’s room we also find the STRANDMON footrest, a practical and elegant accessory.
The richness of IKEA’s proposals lies in the small details, a question that takes on a new dimension when talking about a baby’s room. These rooms are usually equipped with a very characteristic personal imprint which, in most cases, inspires serenity and warmth. In the image you can identify a multitude of elements with the unmistakable seal of the Swedish brand. Now it only remains for you to choose which one do you want for the design of your baby’s bedroom?
