Over on our sister site Project Nursery, we suggest keeping the big kid room in mind when designing a nursery. For one, you’re creating a design you love, why not keep it for more than a couple years? Plus, let’s be honest, it’s a whole lot easier on the budget. With the right forethought, you can make a seamless transition from nursery to big kid room by just changing out a few details here and there.
First things first, the crib is replaced with a big boy bed.
The little woodland friend and mobile get swapped out…
…for cool geometric decals and clear book ledges for a few favorite books.
Here’s where Patchi’s genius plan of creating this IKEA hack dresser/changing table/desk made the transition a snap. Simply remove the changing pad and…
…you’ve got a space just right for future homework sessions and current art projects.
While the design is overall the same, a few changes here and there really elevate the space from baby to big boy.
