Congratulations! You are expecting a little bundle of joy! While this news is amazing, there is so much that needs to be done: doctor appointments, change of dietary needs, new clothes, and, of course, a nursery room! Whether you are expecting a boy or girl, we are here to help you decorate the nursery room in the best possible way before the little on arrives!
Keep in mind that the baby was a joint effort. This means you should decorate the room to not only highlight the newborn, but also you and your spouse. Have it combine your personal style with traditional flairs. For instance, if your husband loves fishing, consider giving the room a coastal anchor theme. Is he more of a golfer? Paint the room a shade of green and try accessorizing with a clubhouse look. This will be your child’s first room, so make it the best it can be.
Start with the color of the walls, and decide if you want to paint or add wallpaper, then work from there. The trending designs for nursery rooms now are vintage and traditional elements mixed with bold patterns. Get creative!
While the look should stand out, do not forget to make the room comfortable and safe for your baby. When choosing fabric for the room, find ones that are easy to clean. Not only will this be good for your baby, it will also not turn the cleanup process up into a long stressful project.
Think of yourself too. We must be realistic and prepare for the nights the baby is up crying. Set up a little area for yourself. Add a comfortable chair that you can sit on during these nights. Put a light, with dimmer, next to that chair. Just be sure it still matches the room!
Finally, add items with meaning. Adding picture frames with family pictures. Even if the baby does not get to see the relatives often, let them get familiar with their faces through the photographs. You can add toys that used to belong to you and your spouse, nick-nacks with sentimental meaning, and items that resemble you and your spouse.
Good luck with your new bundle of joy!Posted by Anthony Licciardello on
