Admit it: you have a hard enough time trying to decorate your own space. It’s probably twice as hard to imagine doing it for someone else – someone you’ve yet to meet or who is too young to choose their own colour scheme and furniture. We know how stressful it can be, especially when you want everything to be perfect for your baby. Below, you will find a brief background on nurseries, their importance and how you can design the ideal space for your toddler. So, have no fear: it just got easier.
Designing the perfect bedroom for your baby
It is important to create the right environment for your baby to encourage growth, joy, comfort and much more. As a parent, there is quite a bit of pressure behind giving your baby the best you can. A bedroom is certainly no exception: you want the best for your child and nothing but the best. However, this isn’t always easy to accomplish. To make things easier and more enjoyable for you, we’ve compiled a list of five beautiful, inspirational themes to spice up your baby’s bedroom. Read on to learn more about how you can turn your nursery from plain to pleasant with ease.
Minimal and modern
Many like to keep things simple, and there’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, minimalism is becoming trendier by the day. You can keep up with the times by establishing a neutral colour scheme with complementary, yet basic hues, and sticking to the essentials when it comes to furniture. You can modernise your space by installing window shutters, which come in a variety of styles and are much more durable than traditional drapes. You can even purchase shutters in special shapes or designs to add a unique kick to your baby’s minimal, yet modern bedroom.
Colourful and chic
Studies have shown that babies, as well as young children, are intrigued and sometimes even soothed by colour. There are tons of ways to incorporate colour into your design, such as adding fresh flowers or plants. This will add natural, bright colours to the room and introduce your baby to the wonders of vegetation! Coloured lights, throw pillows and rugs are also great ways to create colourful harmony in your nursery.
A child’s room should look like one, shouldn’t it? As children grow, their interests follow suit, so it is important to surround them with things that will keep them intrigued. You could accomplish this by letting your nursery double as a mini play land – stocked with a toy area or toy box, lots of colours throughout and even cartoon-themed wallpaper. You could even locate character-themed bed sets to further imply a kid-friendly environment.
A little artsy
A great way to spice up your baby’s bedroom is by using art – sometimes, lots of it! A patterned wallpaper or a unique shade of paint will add instant flair. It would be a great idea to hang a series of inspirational, versatile paintings and artworks (above their reach, of course) to tie in to the creative ambience. You could even consider finding a few motivational quotes and use foam or sticker lettering to post them on the walls of your nursery.
Eccentric and enlightening
Want to integrate education into your decorations or make learning fun for your little one? A whiteboard is a good option to consider. It will encourage your infant to draw and will be a great place to write quotes or words you want to teach them. Fun rugs are rugs that have puzzles, mazes and more on their surface, so that babies can try to tackle them as they crawl around. Another great choice would be a map – although a seemingly abnormal addition to someone’s bedroom, a map could encourage an interest in the world itself and in learning.
Parents are expected to do their best and give their best for their children. While this may be a bit overwhelming, especially to new parents, it is still a good idea to try to enjoy decorating your baby’s nursery as much as they’ll enjoy staying in it. The more creative you are, the better your outcome will be. Consider the different ways each theme could affect your child and decide which you think is best. You could even combine one or more of the themes to create the perfect design. And while you’re at it, be sure to relax, have fun and enjoy the greatness of being a new parent!
