5 Baby Nursery Decorating Ideas

Having a baby? Need to decorate your baby’s nursery? Looking for ideas?

Look no further!

With the incredible variety of nursery decoration choices available, it can be hard to make a final decision on your baby nursery decor.

The most effective way to “shorten the list” of baby nursery decoration options is to consider your own style preferences and personal interests.

Think about the things which were fun and memorable for you while you where growing up, or maybe look to the styles of today for something new and inspiring.

However, before making any decisions, always remember that your baby nursery decor has to be enjoyable and functional for the baby and the parents too.

The goal with any baby nursery decor is to create a special place for you and your baby since you will be spending the most time here and much of the bonding will occur in the baby’s room.

So the nursery decoration style you select should have an inviting and pleasant feel to it.

To assist you with making your baby nursery decoration choices, here are five ideas to help you make the best baby nursery for you and baby.

1. Start with The Crib

Since this is the focal point in the room, select your crib design first and then the style of the room will be defined for you.

Whether you select a modern, classic, Victorian, or whimsical crib style, the design will establish the rest of your baby nursery decor.

2. Add Color

The color scheme of the room should reflect the style of your furniture.

To help stimulate your baby’s eyes and brain, incorporate bold colors and patterns into your nursery decoration.

This can be in the form of wallpaper, a mural or large pieces or artwork.

3. Add some Characters or a Theme

Adding colorful characters – whether from fictional fairy tales or real life – bring a baby nursery decor to life.

You can either use a stencil to paint in themed or storybook characters, affix a decal or mural to the wall, or hang a poster or wall hanging.

Some popular characters are from nursery rhymes, books, or television shows. Among them are classics like Raggedy Ann and Andy, Noah’s Ark and Mother Goose.

Characters or themes can also be added with the simple addition of some themed crib bedding. It is one of the easiest ways to start decorating your baby’s nursery.

4. Accessorize your Nursery

Accessories are where you can really emphasize your baby nursery decoration look. For easy care, choose accessories that are washable, unbreakable and baby proof.

There are numerous unique designs for nursery decoration pieces like photo frames, decorative baskets, shelving, and toy boxes.

5. Incorporate the Essentials

You will find that your baby nursery decoration items will change as your baby progresses from infancy to early school age.

During the newborn stages, the room should include essential furnishings for the parents, such as a glider, ottoman, or rocking chair, which are ideal comfort items for feeding and rocking.

As the baby grows older, you can remove these furnishings and replace them with age appropriate essentials.

See how this same swivel glider and ottoman set which was once in baby’s nursery has been placed in a living room setting – and looks great in both.

That is what we call, smart furniture buying!
