Making renovations to a fixer-upper apartment may actually call on you to make some adjustments to the original structure while others may all the same be left just as intact. Think of for instance removing the paneling from the kitchen and the living room so as to make the rooms more spacious and airy thus making them look newer and fresher as you can view here. Nevertheless, for those found paneling in the bedroom, you may be well advised to leave them intact. Most fixer-uppers are often found in a set up of the traditional ranch formats, having a long hallway in the back and bedrooms on both.
The first item to take a look at as you look forward to creating such a nursery is the carpeting there is in the house. Think of removing such old threadbare carpets that often happen to be in such fixer uppers for they often happen to be such that have lived therein for several years and as such quite worn out. In fact you may be just surprised that what lies underfoot the carpets are such beautiful glossy real hardwoods. In your effort to make the room look more beautiful, think of adding such items such as rugs of the right color like the pink area rugs right in front of the crib and these do serve to make the room feel a lot warmer.
After you are done with this, it may be just as advisable for you to consider adding a dresser to the nursery. In the event that you happen to not know the gender of the baby yet, as it may be that they are still unborn, then it may be advisable for you to go for the plain and neutral items of furniture and accessories. The perfect color schemes for such are gray, white, green and white. You may visit an online shop for your purchase of such items of furniture. In between the crib and the dresser, consider adding a handmade swan baby rocker which can actually be made by a local craftsman in your area.
Consider having hung a handmade mobile as an ideal addition to the crib, this just being hung right above the crib. This may be simply created using paper star cutouts and a simple rod and ribbon hanging mechanism. These actually happen to be so ideal for the fact that they are so light and delicate as to be safely hung in the ceiling and as well high enough away from the reach of the child.
Have an old rocker in the nursery as yet another item of furniture to add to the room.
