Having a baby is an extremely exciting time for everyone concerned, but where do you start with the nursery? Assuming you know what sex the baby is, then is there really only pink and blues to decorate the room? If you don’t know the sex of the baby, can you only use green or creams and neutral colors? There are many things you can do to make your child’s nursery unique and a room that the child will grow to love as they grow up in the room.
Redecorating a nursery into a toddler’s bedroom can seem like a daunting task as well, but fear not, there are many things you can do to make the bedroom or the playroom a room that the children will never want to leave.
A baby’s bedroom can be filled with such wonderful colors; it doesn’t have to just be pink or blue. What about using fresh colors such as yellows and pale greens for the baby’s nursery? These colors can be calming and relaxing as well as stylish and practical. You could paint the walls and add a paper border around the middle with a pattern on to break up the colors in the room. You could use stencils or stickers to change the look of the room. Adding pictures and frames to a wall can really make a babyís nursery look wonderful. You could also use gentle browns or creams in a babyís nursery. Not only are these colors simple and effective they are also neutral; meaning when the baby grows to a toddler, the colors can stay the same and the general theme of the room can change.
A toddler’s bedroom could be even more complicated than a baby’s! Find out what the child loves the most; favorite cartoon, favorite color etc, and decorate around that theme. The walls could stay the same color though; just try changing the things inside the bedroom to give it a new feel. You can now get a huge variety of character bedspreads and curtain sets; a perfect and easy way to change the general feel of the bedroom without doing anything too drastic.
Kids area rugs work well to give them something they want and a place to play on the floor with their toys. And if the rug is colorful and fun, it can also be hung on the wall. This keeps the kids rugs clean, while it’s on the wall and makes the room look great. A nice way to go back and forth from wall to floor until it finds it’s perfect place in your child’s room.
Children can be quite fickle at times and their trends change as quickly as their moods. Try and keep the walls a general color and change everything else. Adding ornaments or stickers to the bedroom can change the look and feel of the room at minimum fuss and price.
A general rule of thumb where children’s bedrooms are concerned is to keep it as general a theme as possible and make the bits and bobs inside the room to a particular person, character and such like. There will be less complications this way and also less stress and effort from you.
Try and make the area a relaxing place for the children. Luminous colors are definitely off the chart, you can have vibrant colors, but be careful to not over do the colors. The last thing you want is your child to go to bed and suddenly become less relaxed.
Enjoy all the fun you can have with home decor in the nursery and the children’s bedroom and playrooms.
