Getting your baby's room ready

Getting your baby's room ready

  • Sarah Villane

Not only can adding a nursery ceiling fan help the look of the baby's room, researchers say it could also help your little one sleep safely.

A study by the Journal of the American Medical Association found using a fan in the nursery while the baby is asleep reduces their risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) by 72 percent. St. Louis Children’s Hospital shared information for helping babies sleep safely, and one of their tips included keeping a ceiling fan on in their room to circulate air, adding it will prevent the baby from overheating. We're not medical experts, but we can tell you when it comes to home decor Hunter's designers are noticing people are getting away from the typical blue or pink baby rooms.

Soft Modern

Combine the parent's style with the whimsy a baby's room needs: Soft modern home decor is playful but can grow with your child's changing styles.

Farmhouse home decor is based on heritage and creating a cozy feeling-- exactly how you want a nursery to feel. Keep your farmhouse nursery colors neutral -- light grey, white, beige - and use rustic, wood finishes. Add greens and blues for a splash of color that keeps with the farmhouse vibe. We recommend the Mill Valley farmhouse ceiling fan in Indigo Blue or Loki small room fan that feature rustic finishes for a farmhouse style nursery.
