Baby Proof Grown Up Decor

Take nesting to a whole new level. Give your space a stylish pre-baby makeover with these tips from Homepolish, a premium design service for any budget.

Some of our favorite clients are expecting mothers. The many phases a woman goes through during pregnancy make this an opportune time to renew and redecorate.

During the nesting period, finishing touches are often all it takes to make your home feel complete. A simple way to do this is by accessorizing. Infuse an accent color into the room using a throw blanket, pillows, vases, picture frames or artwork.


The second phase is preparation, and everyone’s favorite—baby proofing! It’s time to ditch the coffee table books, lamp cords and flower vases. Anything that can fall or injure your wee one with sharp corners has to go. Update your space to safely accommodate your growing family with these stylish staples:

A round coffee table with legs that aren’t metal


A storage cabinet to hide away hazardous cords for media devices


The final phase comes after the baby is born. How do you keep things looking nice with all the rogue toys, baby bottles and excess clutter?

A cheap and easy storage solution is a credenza from Ikea. They come in all sizes and function great in a variety of rooms. In the dining room, living area or entryway you can dress it up with cute baskets or keep it colorful with plastic inserts in the playroom.



Storage solutions don’t have to be boring! Hunt for a fun DIY project on Pinterest, an ever-inspiring resource.

Bringing a baby into your home is such a special time. We hope these simple tips help make the process easy and enjoyable for the whole family.
