With the vast selection of nursery decor items available on the market today, every Mom can find the inspiration that she needs to create a magical baby nursery for her little one.
Many moms are unsure about where to begin.
Here are a few tips to consider when you are decorating a baby nursery:
When you’re deciding which room to pick, it is advisable to choose a room that is situated close to your bedroom. Make sure the room has good ventilation and adequate heating. You might want to consider blinds or curtain linings if this room let’s a lot of light in, as it may help baby to fall asleep at night.
To avoid growing tired of the design or the room looking out of place, choose a style that reflects your personal style and look similar to the rest of your home.
- Make a list
Create a list with three of your favorite themes with ideas. Make comparisons to help you choose which one to use.
- Stick to basics
Moms often tend to over decorate especially with the first child. With the wide selection of stunning nursery furniture and accessories, you can pick a few basic pieces and still make the nursery look amazing. When you’re decorating the nursery, try to keep it simple and you need to consider age-appropriateness and child-friendly decor. Keep the background neutral, so if you feel the need to redecorate, it won’t be necessary to redo the whole room.
- Be wise about color choice
The aim is to create a calming and nurturing haven that will benefit you immensely when you’re facing all the challenges that go along with taking care of a new-born. Stick to soft colors. You’ll have plenty of time to change the color scheme when baby get’s older and you have a clear idea of what she likes.
- Choose decor that is adaptable
Wallpaper might need to be replaced in a few years time when you want to redecorate the nursery to be more suitable for a toddler’s room. Wallpaper with character might have to be completely replaced. Making use of wall art or stickers are more cost effective and a great alternative.
- Keep safety in mind
Make sure that the crib or cot you are buying is safety approved. Always position the cot a safe distance away from heaters, wall decorations, lamps, cords and windows.
- Buy furniture first
Buy your key furniture pieces first, as it’s easier and cheaper to match fabrics, wallpaper and paint to your furniture as oppossed to the other way around.
- Think outside the box
You don’t always have to buy furniture or accessories that are nursery-specific. Choose items and colors that you adore.
