Your baby’s nursery is their first home. It is their first space in the world, and you want to make it fun, calm and still functional. Decorating your baby’s room gives them a welcoming atmosphere full of wonder. When they are young, you have the chance to decide how the room will look. You can create the nursery of your dreams and call all the shots since the baby may not care how it looks. So, why not take the opportunity of decorating when you call all the shots. Here are some tips you can use to decorate your baby’s room.
Your baby’s nursery needs to be functional. You will be moving around the room carrying the baby, and you wouldn’t want to risk tripping on the clutter on the floor. Try to reduce unnecessary elements in the room. Purge regularly. Slot some time to organize your kid’s clothes and remove any that do not fit. Remove toys that the baby is no longer interested in to minimize unnecessary clutter. Have beautiful storage options to hold all your baby’s things and avoid clutter.
Select a theme
It is easy to get carried away and want all the tiny, cute pieces. Unfortunately, that could end up making your baby’s nursery look like an unorganized mess. Find a theme to direct the look of the room. Narrow down your options to avoid buying everything that looks beautiful. Consider the main elements of the room. Choose a theme around larger pieces like a bassinet, baby cot, nursing chair, or the changing table. You could look at heirloom pieces and build your theme around those.
If you have any unique decorative elements like furniture or artwork, you could select a room style around them. The interior features of the room, like the windows and doors, could also help you decide on a theme for the baby’s room. A popular nursery theme is nature which is relaxing and playful. Incorporate elements like a star shaped pillow to help you achieve the nature theme. A boho and eclectic theme could add a light and airy atmosphere to the baby’s nursery. It is a perfect theme if you want to work with neutral colors to create a clean and cozy space.
Consider other elements of the house
When decorating your baby’s room, you should consider the home style for the rest of your house. Is the house style traditional, vibrant or eclectic? Consider having the decorative elements present in other parts of your house in your nursery. That will make it consistent with the rest of the home.
Dress up the walls
Walls are a blank canvas to add visual interest to your home. Paint one of the walls in a bold color or have beautiful murals that go with your chosen theme. Keeping the walls captivating with decorative aspects helps minimize clutter because you will not need too many accessories. You could also install hanging shelves on the wall to put décor pieces on top. Consider creating a wall of memories with baby pictures as they grow and other special family moments.
Decorating your baby’s room is an exciting project for any parent. Choose the right theme color, pick the right beddings and minimize clutter. The tips above will help you create a beautiful and functional space to welcome your bundle of joy.
