Babies grow up so fast that you’ll soon find yourself with a nursery that no longer meets the needs of your toddler. When this happens, it’s time to transition to a toddler room. Where do you begin? DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Elizabethtown, a local expert in a wide variety of home remodeling projects, offers a few considerations to help you get started.
Make Floor Space
Your toddler will want to play and explore, and clearing floor space will let them do just that safely. If you had a rocking chair in the nursery, for example, it may be time to get rid of it. If possible, remove any other baby gear that your child has already outgrown.
One of the things your toddler will be interested in is learning how to get dressed. If you’re okay with letting them pull out their own clothes to wear, you can move clothing items down to lower-level shelves and drawers for easy access. This is perfect for teaching them how to be independent but to keep things neat and tidy, have baskets and bins accessible so your toddler can help with putting their own things away.
Repurpose the Changing Area
Diapers will soon be a welcome memory so you won’t be using the changing table as much. You can swap out a changing table for a child-sized table and chair and convert it into a crafts area, or place toy bins nearby to make playtime easy to start.
