For those parents or soon-to-be parents who want to but can’t get started, try to consider this good ol’ tips.
Decorating nurseries can be unexpectedly overwhelming for people. But don’t worry, here’s our good ol’ nursery décor ideas and make your child’s nursery a dream come true, of course, without spending too much on your budget.
Designing the Room
Paint the room colorful. Even though newborns can only see black and grey in their first few weeks, it is important to choose the right color. As always and as all of us see in a typical baby’s room, all of which are colorful. Our nursery décor ideas suggests that you pick colors like pastel colors or colors which are in softer tones of blue, green, oranges, pinks and yellows because in this way, they are much more of appealing to a newborn’s eye. If you are to paint the room a solid pastel color, why not add oversized horizontal stripes to it? All you need is a paint of your chosen secondary shade, painter’s tape and a brush. Besides, it is a bit pricey to hire a muralist. Reminder! Finish all the painting job at least eight weeks before the expected baby’s arrival. Make sure that windows are open so that air may enter the room. This practices may help avoid the potentially harmful effects brought by the chemicals.
Frames! Your budget may not include buying an authentic painting just to display something on the nursery’s wall, but that doesn’t mean that you would leave the wall empty. Be creative- try to get old children’s book covers and frame it up, or get a fun family print. Then, choose a standard size frame so that you don’t have to seek after professional framing.
Storage, Furniture and Organizing
Plan all the storage space you need. In planning nursery decor ideas, it is also important to plan the spacing of the room and its contents. Figure out how much space you need, because this is the part where most of the parents underestimate the amount of the baby stuff they’ll need.
Small closets and bins. As much as we want to keep the nursery clutter-free, it is hard to know when it is going to be dirty. Try to make and change everything in the room washable and durable. You may choose to alter your floors and change it into hardwood, they’re easier to clean and it doesn’t harbor too much allergy-inducing dusts. Add small closets to your walls as baby’s clothes don’t take up much vertical space. You may also choose to add bins to keep toys and other accessories away.
Observe where the lights enter the room. Applying basic knowledge, don’t put the crib somewhere that receives direct sunlight in the morning. Also, make sure that there’s room to replace for the child’s bed once baby’s crib is replaced.
Don’t put furniture near the windows and use window guards. Anchor and mount any heavy furniture so that it won’t fall over easily if accidentally bumped.
Add a day-bed or a chair. Adding a day-bed or an extra bed serves an extra place to sleep for the parents. It will aid parents in nursing the baby or if the baby is sick. It can also provide a space in folding the child’s clothes. Adding a chair will make you comfy once you spend time with the child reading stories.
Pick a changing table which has a lot of accessible storage. You may choose to have a bed-side table along with the changing table so that you can put lotions, powders and baby oils on top of it, making it easier to grab one.
