Decorating your baby’s nursery is such a special moment. It is all about imagining your little one in this special space that you are creating just for them so make sure that you consider all the essentials when decorating
Here are a few tips on decorating a nursery:
1. Consider the size of the nursery
When deciding on what you want to do with your nursery, consider the size of the room. Don’t over clutter as it will make things really difficult once the baby is there. Enough open space is needed for once the baby is there. When you have your baby in the one arm, you don’t want to fall over any unnecessary clutter.
Also remember that a bigger nursery will also need extra items such as heaters to keep the room warm where as a smaller room is warmer and easier to keep warm.
2. Choosing your nursery theme
Create a mood board filled with ideas of what you would like for the nursery. Sometimes a theme idea just comes to you, other times it might take some time and research to get there.
When choosing your theme, consider all the aspects of it. What colour you will use (It is a good idea to choose soft and tranquil colours that will have a calming and relaxed effect on your baby.), what furniture you will incorporate with it and the decor items that goes with it.
It is also very important that the nursery reflects who you and your partner are, seeing as this is going to be your precious little gifts room.
3. Consider your nursery decor items
Think about how long the nursery decor will last your baby. Using adaptable decor is a brilliant idea to save money and get the most out of your special nursery theme. Make sure that all the decor and room items you choose are safe.
Instead of having to change your decor completely, think of using wall stickers that can just be replaced when you need to update your little one’s room. This is an inexpensive way to keep it updated. Another thing you can do is just replace pillowcases and bedding if you have a neutral coloured and themed room.
4. Consider your nursery furniture
Select your key furniture pieces before you start decorating. You can work your whole theme around these pieces and when you need to update the room, it is as easy as switching out the decor items and not the furniture.
The most important thing is to make sure that your nursery is practical and easy to use and that your baby has a special place just for them.
