With the Right Info, Decorating Your Dream Nursery Is Child’s Play

Along with having a baby comes a ton of excitement and anticipation, as well as perhaps a certain amount of stress from trying to get all your ducks in a row by the time the baby is born. One of these ducks is decorating your nursery so it suits you and your baby’s needs perfectly. Sure, at first it may seem rather daunting, but if you keep in mind these great nursery décor ideas, you’ll find that creating your dream nursery is surprisingly easy.

Choose a theme for your nursery

Coming up with a theme for your nursery is usually a good first step. Wallpaper colours and designs have a lot to do with that. When considering wallpaper colours, look for soft, calming colours that will have a soothing effect on your baby. When it comes to designs, start with something fairly basic and subtle, as you can always add to it later on. A great idea for decorating the walls is using adaptable décor like wall decals, so you can easily adjust the look of the room as your child gets older. Also, when choosing colours and themes, keep in mind the style of the furniture you have in your nursery to make sure they go well together.

Visualize then actualize

Now that you have a general theme for your nursery, the next thing you’ll want to do is try to visualize the best possible layout of the room. The easiest way to do this is divide your nursery into separate areas for sleeping, nursing, changing, and playing. Not only will it help you envision the end result, it’ll also simplify the decorating process and give you a well-organized room to make things a whole lot easier for you.

Sleeping area

Once you’ve got a nice spot for the crib, you can then start adding a few key things that’ll give your little one a more peaceful and comfortable sleeping experience, while also adding to your nursery décor in the process. Brighten up the room with some colourful crib bedding, set up a baby mobile above the crib, and add some nursery lighting items such as nightlights that can also produce soothing sounds to help your baby sleep.

Nursing area

Having a nursing area that’s comfortable for you and your baby is also really important, as you’ll be spending quite a bit of time there nursing and reading to your little one. Try to make this area big enough to fit a nice, comfy armchair for yourself, as well as a side table to give you easy access to things like baby bottles and burping cloths. Another nice touch are nursery lamps and shades, which further add to whatever theme you’ve chosen for your nursery.

Changing area

So you’ve got the changing area set up; now what? Well, one thing you may want to do is look into putting up some shelves on the wall beside the changing table to give you extra storage space for diapers, wipes and everything else you need for diaper-changing. You may also want to consider setting up a baby mobile above the table to distract your little one while you’re changing them. As you can imagine, this could make life a lot easier for you.

Play area

Creating a space where your little one can just have fun and play around is a nice addition to a nursery. If you’ve got hardwood floors, think about getting a thick, soft area rug so your baby can comfortably crawl around on the floor. On top of that, a rug can also improve sound-proofing and add a warm feel to the overall décor of the nursery.
