The combination of the parent bedroom and the nursery in the same room is a forced option when it comes to the limited space of a one-room apartment or the need to install a newborn baby’s crib in the bedroom. Proper zoning and the installation of a baby cot are of no small importance: both parents and the baby should be comfortable.
Very often, the parent’s bedroom with a cot becomes the first baby’s room.
The zoning of the room into the bedroom and the nursery is the main requirement when the room combines these two functions. If it is desirable to place the newborn's bed next to an adult bed, so that it is convenient for the mother to feed and care for the baby at night, then the older child in the studio apartment or “one-child” needs to be allocated its own, albeit small, space.
Baby in parents bedroom
It does not require the allocation of zones, the delimitation of space, if the apartment has more than one room, and it is assumed that the crumb will spend only a few months in the parent’s bedroom. In this case, you should not install partitions, screens, decorate the walls in a special way, otherwise in a year you will have to change the interior of the room.
Toddlers grow fast, so this fact should be taken into account when making an adult bedroom with a bed for a baby
In odnushka you need to plan a children's corner, where the baby’s crib will be, afterwards - a desk, a place for games. The main methods of zoning one-room apartment - partitions, arches. You can divide the room with the help of screens, furniture.

Arches and partitions
Allocation of the parent bedroom in the common room is possible by installing a plasterboard partition. You should not make the partition deaf, from the floor to the ceiling, otherwise the room will be dark. Place the child is better located closer to the window, but so that it was protected from drafts.
As a partition, you can use a dresser or bedside table.
Up to the ceiling, a partition can only be narrow - just to hide a bed behind it. So you can select a bed in a room of any shape and area. The partition may be low, then it can be made wider and bulky, making something similar to a rack.
A low partition-closet is the perfect solution for zoning an adult bedroom with a cot
The arch is preferable in a narrow bedroom, then it will be made to the ceiling, and on both sides you can leave a small wall (conveniently, when there are two children in the family - you can equip 2 beds behind the walls) or build a narrow rack - such storage space is not superfluous for books. will be.
Curtains perfectly cope with zoning and create additional comfort.
Parent bedroom behind the screen
The screen will allow to separate the sleeping place of parents in a one-room apartment at the time of sleep. During the daytime, the folding screen cleans up and does not clutter the room. You can make it simple and decorative. The painted screen will become an element of the room's decor, and only its family will be aware of its functional purpose.
The screen will help to hide the crib and make the baby’s sleep stronger and quieter
Cabinet furniture is used as a department for the child and adult bedrooms: for example, you can remove the parent bed for a wardrobe. If there is a niche in the room, the parents' rest area can be equipped there.

Often a room in a one-room apartment has an irregular shape, and there is an opportunity to put a matrimonial bed behind the wall separating the room from the hallway. You can close it with a screen, shelving, cloth curtain.
Important! It is desirable that the parents' bedroom was not the entrance, it is better not to make the child witness the intimate life of the parents.
A small niche in the wall will help create a complete small room for a newborn.
Common room design
For the common room where the parents and the child live, it is important to choose the right color combinations, wall and floor decoration. They also serve as a way of zoning the room, while maintaining stylistic uniformity. This is necessary if the child and adults spend more than one year in the same room.
Choosing a color palette
For the decoration of the walls of the combined bedroom with the nursery, it is better to choose pastel colors. Light peach, beige, delicate pistachio shades can be combined with brighter ones to create a harmonious space divided into zones.
Light pastel shades look great in the interior of an adult bedroom with a cot
Successful combinations will be:
- Pastel shades are plain walls for an adult bedroom and a striped wall of the same color range - for a nursery. Create a balance will help a bright bedspread on the bed of the parents, pillows on the sofa to match the strip on the wallpaper.
- Lighter walls where the parents' bed or sofa are, a brighter shade of the same color for the children's area or a contrasting one.
For a children's corner it is better to choose light colors that do not irritate the baby.
Important! Choosing a color palette, you can use the color wheel or a table of combinations of colors, then the interior will be harmonious.
Creating different levels
Multi-level floor, ceilings - the ability to divide one room visually into two, to create an interesting design. The podium can perform two functions:
- To divide the room into the nursery and adult zone;
- Create a multifunctional space in the children's corner: under the podium you can remove a child’s sleeping place for a day, and there will be a working and play zone on it. So a small room can be "expanded."
A small catwalk will help create a functional children's area in the parents' bedroom.
It will allow to create an interesting design and a multi-level ceiling: if you make its shape unusual - semi-circular, winding, the room will visually change its borders, become more interesting, more stylish, and the ceiling bends will become a means of zoning.
Even a multi-layered white ceiling perfectly copes with the dormitory zoning
How to furnish a common room
Two functions that one room performs are dictated by the characteristics of the choice of furniture. A children's bed, a table should be combined with adult furniture, be made in the same style. The best choice would be minimalism with its simple forms, the lack of decorative excesses.
Furniture should be easy to use, with environmentally friendly natural materials.
For a common room where adults and a child live, even a minimal set of furniture will be impressive if it is the only room in a family. Two beds, a desk, a wardrobe - this is a minimum of interior items, they must be made in the same style.
The correct arrangement of furniture will even make one room functional and cozy.
It is better to replace the parents' bed with a folding sofa: in odnushku it will become a guest accommodation. Saving space will help built-in boxes. If there is an opportunity to equip a dressing room in the hallway, in the bedroom you can leave a small closet or chest of drawers with things.
The furniture perfectly copes with its direct purpose and zoning the bedroom with the nursery.
A folding table can be provided for the children's area, and shelves for books and toys can be replaced with a low rack that separates the child and parent areas, or hinged shelves can be placed above the bed.
The folding table will be a great help to parents and a great place to practice in a room with a small area.
Another option is the loft bed, under which the child’s desk will be located. However, this option should not be chosen for a room narrow or small in size - bulky furniture will visually “push”.
The loft bed does not take up much space and is a functional corner for the development and recreation of the child.
Furniture placement rules
First, place an adult bed - it takes a lot of space. Adult bed put headboard to the wall.
A parent bed headboard to the wall and a cot by the window are the best combination of prioritization in bedroom furnishing
Baby bed installation rules:
- In the parents' bedroom, the bed for the newborn baby is placed next to the parent, from the mother’s side - it will be convenient for her to feed the baby at night or calm her down if the baby wakes up.
- Another option is to put a baby cradle in front of an adult bed - the child will always be in sight of the mother. But this option is acceptable only if the room is square.
- You can not put a newborn's bed in a draft, as well as in heating devices, noisy household appliances.
- Do not place the bed of the crumbs near the outlets, objects that collect dust.
Installing a baby cot at the head of the parent’s bed is very convenient for looking after the baby
The older child’s bed is recommended to be installed in the corner opposite to where the parent’s bed is. It is not recommended to put a bed in front of the doorway, and it is better to put the child’s desk near the window, and it is also undesirable to equip a sleeping place for the child near the window.
Decorative items in the room
A room that has become a bedroom for parents and a nursery should be beautiful, comfortable. Light organza drapes, roman blinds will help to create coziness - they will visually expand the room.
Family photos on the walls will combine two zones - the parents' bedroom and the nursery, and posters with the favorite characters of the baby, volume letters or inscriptions, an unusual bright lamp will create the mood in the children's corner. A bright bedspread on the baby bed, in the same tone as the pillows on the couch in the parents' bedroom, will become a color accent against the background of light pastel walls.
Decor items should not be much, so as not to overload the limited space of the bedroom that performs a dual function. Let them become the favorite toys of the baby - a teddy bear can "settle" on the couch, becoming not just a toy, but a symbol of a friendly family.
The room where the parents and the child live together is a multifunctional room that has become the parent’s bedroom and the nursery.
Despite the complexity of the arrangement, it should be such that the parents, the child was comfortable living here.
