Hi! Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend:)
Thought I'd share a little bit about 2 possible floor plans for BG's nursery in hopes of getting your feedback. (For before pics of the nursery and to see a little bit more of how the room is laid out, click here.)
I'm only worrying about the 3 major pieces of furniture that will be in here for now: the crib, dresser (with changing pad on top) and glider (not sure if I'm going for the ottoman or not). I drew up these 2 possible layouts, not to scale (I was being lazy...but I do have the real life dimensions of everything and know they will fit).
Plan A was my first thought. Put the crib against the big open wall on the right when you walk in. Thus we could see BG from the hallway/a step or two into the room to easily check on her. The dresser could then go on the back wall and the glider in the back left corner, near the windows.
Problems with this layout: the crib is deeper than the little wall of the closet that juts out, so it blocks a bit of the pathway into the room. Not sure if I want to walk into the room and be confronted with the corner of the crib. Also, the right wall (that the crib is on in this layout) is the wall that opens up to our 2 story foyer on the other side...so the stairs to the upstairs are basically on the other side of this wall. Does that mean if people are downstairs making noise that she would be able to hear it more?
In Floor Plan B, I basically swapped the crib and dresser. So now the dresser is on the open wall to the right and the crib is tucked away on the back wall.
This way we would have to walk several steps into the room and peak around the corner to the left to see BG. But, the wall that the crib is on here backs up to our bedroom, so maybe that's better?
To be honest, I'm probably just going to get everything in there and then try both of these and see which we like better (or another layout if it makes sense). But I'd like to get your opinion. Which do you think works better? Is it important to be able to see the baby from the doorway? Anything else I should be considering?
