How to save money when decorating a baby's nursery
Posted on 15 March 2012
One of the many fun activities expecting parents look forward to is decorating their baby's nursery. And while it may be a no-brainer for parents to incorporate the newborn baby gifts they receive into the room, other choices, like picking the furniture for instance, can be more difficult. With so many decorating options to chose from, this process can be overwhelming and expensive. According to Parenting.com, however, there are some tricks that will help parents to be save money before their bundle of joy arrives.
There's no way around it. Every baby needs a crib, and some of them, like the Oeuf Classic Crib can cost more than $900. A less expensive alternative that looks almost identical is the Baby Mod Olivia 3-in-1 crib. It's priced at just under $300. And for a third of the price, the Baby Mod Olivia offers four-level mattress positioning and converts to a daybed or toddler bed when the baby outgrows the crib phase.
After purchasing a crib, the next step is to purchase sheets that go inside that will keep the baby comfortable, cozy and warm. One option is to buy DwellStudio Dots Chocolate Crib set, which will cost parents-to-be around $300. A more affordable alternative that looks equally expensive and adorable is also made by DwellStudio, but was designed for Target's baby line. This crib sheet set costs just $80.
Finally, for parents looking for a beautiful, custom-made piece of furniture to decorate their baby's nursery room, many celebrity parents, like Mira Sorvino are buying the Serena and Lily Ashbury Glider. However, this chair doesn't come cheap. It costs approximately $1,200. For a less expensive option, parents may want to purchase the Enchanted Chambord Glider, priced at $400 from Wal-Mart. This glider offers comfort and style without sacrificing your paycheck.
