Being a parent is one of the most beautiful and special feelings. From the time you learn about your pregnancy your mind is packed with a plethora of exciting decisions concerning your baby. Designing a nursery for your little one is certainly one of those because you are about to welcome a new and wonderful life into your own home. It is very important to keep in mind that you should not stick to a specific theme or room design considering the baby’s age because babies grow very fast and you can’t keep on renovating the room every time. Here’s a list of 5 things you need to keep in mind while decorating the Nursery.
It is important to use wall colors that make your baby feel comfortable and relaxed. Always choose calm colors since the baby spends most of the time in the room. You can also go for a neutral wall color that can be accented with removable wall decors and changing themes. This allows your baby to grow with the room without having to repaint the entire room each time.
Always make sure that you childproof the nursery in advance since your baby will grow eventually and will love exploring the furniture. When you are looking for buying furniture, look for options that you can imagine setting up in your baby’s room when they are growing old. It is better to ensure that the large furniture is bolted into the wall to avoid falling over for the safety of your baby.
Be prepared that your baby will accommodate more stuff than you can imagine. As babies grow up, there is an increase in the number of toys and dresses. You would not like keeping few of your baby’s accessories in their room and others in a different room. A changing table with multiple drawers or a daybed with selves can be an option. With such ideas, you can plan for a furniture which has maximum storage capacity and one that need not be reconstructed when the baby grows.
Babies spend a lot of time for the first 2 to 3 years crawling, learning to walk, playing and more. Even when they grow up, babies have a habit of trying something mischievous and falling. It is very important to go for flooring which not only looks good and is baby friendly, but is also easy to vacuum and dust free keeping the safety of the baby in mind.
No gender stereotypes
It is always advisable to go for themes while decorating the nursery which the baby would love to see when they grow up. Completely stereotyping the room in terms of the color, design, furniture and more might leave the baby surrounded with one sort of idea.
