Unique Tips and Ideas to Decorate Nursery
Creating a space for baby can be a daunting task. There's many things to consider like the theme, what colors to use, the décor and where to place the furniture. It can be easier to just stick with the traditional blue or pink designs but that may not be for everyone. Or maybe you do want to stick to pink and blue but are looking for other ways to make the room a little different from the norm.
If you want to explore more creative ways to add to the nursery so that it can have a fresher, more unique look and feel to it then you may enjoy some of these nursery tips and ideas I used to design my daughter's nursery.
Use an Object as a Focal Point to Decorate Baby's Nursery
Choosing a color scheme is a big part in how to decorate a room and is a complicated task alone so straying from the traditional pink and blue can make that task even more complicated. When in doubt (like we were), use an object that you know will be placed in the room as a starting point. I chose a frame that was given to the baby as a gift from her grandfather. It was a sentimental piece that had her name on it and it would be used to hold some of her photos. Therefore, I knew it was going to be a focal point in her room.
Luckily, the color of the picture frame was a pretty purple and white so I matched the paint to the frame. I didn't want the usual pink color to dominate the color scheme of the room but I still appreciated the girly effect that the colors purple and white achieved.
Decorating The Baby Nursery
You're having a baby! Congratulations! And it's a boy, that's great! Now comes the hard part, decorating the nursery for a baby boy, because it's an unfortunate fact of life that there are far more decorating ideas and cute baby room décor for girls than there are for boys. It's just not fair! The color choices are so limited and nice crib sets are so expensive! Creating an adorable nursery for a baby boy is difficult with selections so limited, but with some creativity, it can be done!
If you're fortunate enough to have an extra room in your house for a baby, that's great, you've got a relatively blank slate. However, when you go to look for inspiration at the stores for boy rooms, well...it's a little less than inspiring. The colors are usually primary crayonbox colors, the moss green and brown combination, or the blue & brown combination...not a lot of variation on those colors. And the themes are usually sports, the jungle, Noah's ark or cars, trucks or boats. Some of these might grow with the baby as he gets older, but if anything, he will probably get tired of them before he ever outgrows them.
What do you really need for a baby room? Do you really need to go all out and buy that expensive eight piece furniture set you saw at Babies R' Us? Maybe not. The essentials: You must have a crib and in some cases, a secondhand one won't do. That's due to safety regulations for cribs changing over the years. Cribs have evolved a good bit over the years and crib slats must now be no more than 2 3/8 inches apart to prevent head entrapment. Equally important is the crib mattress. Crib mattresses fit tightly now, so tightly that when changing the sheet it's not unlike wrestling an alligator, but again, it's for safety sake and due to entrapment issues. Paint can also be an issue. Lead-based paint was often used on baby items back in the day and is a safety hazard, so it could be a problem as well. So that antique crib you had your heart set on might not fit the bill!
