Creating the Perfect Nursery
There are so many ways to create an amazing nursery on a budget for your little bundle of joy, from furniture and lighting to paint and soft furnishings.
Perhaps you are looking for a neutral option with scope to accessorise, or maybe bold colours to stimulate your baby’s development. If you know your baby’s gender, you may choose to go with a specific colour palette, or instead something themed like farm animals and teddy bears!
Along with researching online to get some ideas for this new and exciting room in your home, talk to friends and family with young children for their tried-and-tested tips on what works for them (and what didn’t).
Don’t worry, there is plenty of time to decide. We know how important this space is to you as you prepare to bring home your new little one, so our baby room ideas outlined below give you the option to easily update elements as he or she grows and moves on to toddlerhood – and beyond!
For now, get comfortable and read on and hopefully you will find some inspirational baby room ideas here.
Beautiful Baby Room Ideas
It can be very tempting to go all out when it comes to a nursery, particularly if you know the gender of your new baby. However the benefits to using neutral colours are many.
A light, neutral colour can be matched with any furniture. You can make it more personal using rugs, soft furnishing, curtains and other accessories that are inexpensive to change later.
Let There Be Light
There are many ways to bring light into a room and a beautiful light shade can add interest and personalise the space. If you are lucky enough to know anyone crafty, or have a really good craft shop local to you, they can advise on how straightforward it can be to create your own.
A lamp provides some soft lighting that can be useful when you are up during the night, but keep an eye on the cord once your baby starts rolling and crawling.
When it comes to kitting out your new nursery, you may be bamboozled with advertisements for baby this, that and the other that promises to make life easier. There is really no difference between a baby’s dresser and a normal dresser, except perhaps the inflated price tag!
A good drawer unit or wardrobe could be repurposed from another room. Local selling groups are great places to discover really good quality, hardly used items such as nursing chairs.
Work the Walls
One of the best ways to brighten up any room is with some wall decor – a picture, splash of contrasting colour or some wall stickers or decals.
Wall Stickers for Kids has an amazing array of choice when it comes to stickers and decals, ranging from animal and farm themes to unicorns and space adventures and everything in between. They also have a great choice of personalised name stickers which are the perfect finishing touch for a nursery, play room or child’s bedroom.
