Why a Minimalist Baby Room
A baby room can be simple. Since its function is basically sleeping, it doesn’t take much for a beautiful and efficient baby room. The baby will take at least a year to really absorb the decor of the room, so, in the first days, you can focus your budget on the essential.
Many people decorate the room with lots of things, but if you’re a mom with a more limited budget, or who simply understands the value of a minimalist life, you’d rather a room with just what you need and bring joy to you.
It is possible a beautiful minimalist room
With the excitement of the baby arrival, is normal to want to make a room that expresses all the love that the mother is feeling. It seems that the decor communicates, in a way, the intensity of everything we are feeling. And there’s no big deal about that. This post is not to say that certain rooms are right and wrong, but to show the benefits and suggestions for a simple and beautiful baby room.
For this post, I thought of a clean, neutral, gender-neutral baby room with little decoration, quality, and affordable budget. I also draw on my personal experience with my 4-month-old in suggesting items.
Minimalist Nursery Essentials
Nursery Lamp and Nigh lights:
The baby was in the dark, cozy womb. Coming into this world and being exposed to so much strong artificial light is probably not very pleasant. A cute, minimalist lamp is super useful when sitting in your breastfeeding chair and wants to put out enough light without being too much light. A cozy environment to have that special moment with your baby makes all the difference and helps mamma and baby to keep calm when breastfeeding. Also, during the night it’s always good to have the least light to check that your baby is all right!

My favorite! looks like a minimalist bunny friend for your baby.
For the same reasons that I like Joseph: I love it because in addition to lighting and being beautiful, it brings a more playful atmosphere to the environment.
Nursery shelves are good to put a lot of stuff, from small decor itens to books. A affordable way to have a organized nursery.
Your newborn will probably not be able to sleep alone in his crib unless he feels safe and snug as he was in the womb. In my experience as a mother, the nest is more important than the crib itself, and as you can use up to 6 months, it is worth investing in a good so that your little one always feel protected and cozy early in life
My baby’s favorite mobile is my hands! haha, she loves when I play with my fingers and it’s one of the biggest secrets to distract her when she’s crying. That being said: Mobiles don’t need to have anything special, because any movement leaves babies focused and entertained. For this post, I chose some mobiles that I found beautiful and are simple and minimalist
Nursery Glider/rocking chair:
Also very important, especially in the early days, when you are learning to breastfeed. I used a simple model and I don’t quite see the need for a recliner, but the reviews were very good, and the fact that they say it’s super soft made me choose the first option – softness is very important to be relaxed in breastfeeding. On the other hand, I regretted not buying a Rocking Chair. Babies need rocking to sleep, which makes me have to stand with her all the time, otherwise, she won’t sleep, and sometimes it’s tiring, especially postpartum. Maybe with a rocking chair, I could sit and wait for her to fall asleep.
Since we are in a post about a minimalist nursery, where less is more, my suggestion is not to spend too much on a crib. The mattress is more important than the crib itself, so all the suggestions here are convertible cribs, precisely because it lasts longer since you can keep using it for your toddler later. Some more expensive, others cheaper, but the important thing is that they are simple, with good reviews and convertible.
It’s not essential, but we have to agree that it makes a lot of difference in the look and feel of the environment.
