Everywhere I look right now I see posts about pregnancy, about new babies and I love it. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not broody at all but I can’t help remembering fondly those early stages and firsts such as setting up / decorating a nursery and the first ultrasound where “baby“ looks rather like a large prawn (Kieran was called “Shrimp” for some time).
I read so many books, browsed so many sites and spent a lot of time changing my mind about nursery decor especially. For those of my friends and readers in the same position, these top decorating ideas, contributed by Funique, could be very useful!
5 Impressive Ideas for Decorating Nursery
When it comes to nursery and baby rooms, you have to be choosy and very observant as babies have delicate sensibilities and their surroundings (we are told) may make an impression on their upbringing. A nursery or baby room cannot be decorated and the interior cannot be designed without consideration for the delicacy involved in it. From the arrangement of furniture to creating ample floor space to decorating the interior with beautiful and spirited colours, you need to keep an eye on many things. Let us offer here some effective tips and ideas for decorating the nursery. Each of the ideas mentioned here are practical and verified with experience.
Grey is a great colour
Let me be frank about one thing. Baby furniture is often the most important consideration when it comes to decorating the nursery. However great the wall colours and lights are, it is the baby furniture that creates the ultimate impact and of course needs to serve a practical purpose. If you have chosen bright and vibrant colours for the baby room interior, the furniture colours might be better not following the same principles (too much of a good thing). Often creating a good contrast and balance with different colours for walls and furniture needs you to go for little drab colours in furniture. Grey is a nice option for furniture to create a sense of balance with the walls splattered with bright hues.
Often when creating a good contrast and balance with different colours for walls and furniture, you tend to lean towards more “drab” colours when it comes to furniture. Grey is a nice option for furniture as it creates a sense of balance with the walls splattered with bright hues. Grey baby furniture offers the right kind of balance and contrast that makes the room a really calm and soothing environment.
Mind the floor space
When it comes to decorating baby rooms, you must give attention to floor space. In fact, creating a sense of space is one of the most important considerations. Many consider a minimalist interior. There are some important considerations in this respect. First of all, baby rooms may not be very big in size but nevertheless creating a sense of space with effective positioning of furniture and choosing sleek and minimalist furniture design is essential. Secondly, you can leave out a few furniture pieces if they are not absolutely necessary. Thirdly always place the furniture in a way so that no part of the room looks cluttered. Lastly, a few smart pieces like wall hangers, wall pockets, hidden storage, etc. are effective to save space and make the room feel light and airy.
Choose furniture after seeing them in an original room setting
Not every piece of nursery furniture suits all baby rooms. It depends on a variety of factors. Often after seeing a piece of furniture in an original setting we just fall in love with it. One piece does not make a whole nursery though so consider how the other pieces within the set will work in your room and ask to see these pieces arranged together where possible.
Make decor transitional
Sometimes a few touches here and are enough to transform the interior of a home. In this respect we can suggest transitional decoration in order to create a timeless effect which will appeal to children (and grown-ups) of all ages. These much sought after yet aesthetically demanding elements can make baby rooms a beautiful space for the little ones.
