If you’ve got a baby on the way, one of the best things you can do is create an amazing nursery. This nursery will be where they spend most of their time, sleeping and sometimes playing. It should be relaxing and calming for them, but also help them to learn. This guide will help you to create an amazing nursery for your baby:
Come Up With a Theme
Why not come up with a cute theme for your baby’s nursery? This could even help them to develop their imagination as they grow. You could base it on a cartoon, film, or even have a theme such as ‘enchanted forest’. Use your imagination! It might even be a good idea to decorate it so that once they’ve got a bed instead of a Oeuf crib, it’ll still suit them. Then you don’t need to worry about constantly redecorating as your child grows. If you don’t know the sex of your baby, there are still lots of themes that can be considered unisex.
Research the Best Furniture
Research the best furniture for babies. You don’t want to have any problems or accidents, so keep an eye on reviews and things that could give you clues as to what is worth spending your money on. You want things that will last and be worth the money!
Make Sure it’s Safe
You absolutely must makes sure your baby’s nursery is safe. It’ll be a while before they are able to walk around and get into everything, but making sure it’s safe in advance will help you. Cover corners, get rid of anything dangerous, protect the windows, etc. Make sure you’re vigilant in keeping your child safe.
Get Creative Yourselves
Why not get creative yourselves? You could paint a mural if you’re a little bit arty. You could make a bit of furniture. Whatever you make will have a great story behind it, and if you make furniture it could even be kept and passed down. What better way to decorate your child’s nursery than with things you’ve made with love? There are loads of tutorials online to help you!
Think Outside the Box With Colour
When it comes to colour, don’t be afraid to think outside of the box. You don’t need to go pink for a girl and blue for a boy. You can have all kinds of colours. Strictly speaking, pastels and pale colours work best. You could have pastel purples, yellows, and similar hues. You could even go for neutrals, or black and white. You can include patterns and texture to keep it looking fun and exciting!
You want your baby’s nursery to be somewhere they can relax and get rest, but also somewhere that is exciting for them to spend time. Avoid using bright colours, as they can be too stimulating and are best used in playrooms. Children’s toys are also quite bright, so it could be a good idea to keep most of them out of the nursery. Have fun!
