Dos and Don’ts of Nursery Decorating for Your Newborn’s Nursery
One of the most beautiful feelings in life is to become parents! But with this greater joy also comes a lot of daily chaos and overwhelming experiences. If you are about to welcome your little one, then the very first step to take is to plan and prepare his space to save you from mini panic attacks on a daily basis (no kidding). Your little one needs a lot of stuff and space and not dedicating a proper room for your baby will only double your daily chores (no one wants that, right?). Worry not because here we bring you a brief guide of the do’s and don’ts of organizing the perfect nursery for your newborn baby. Whether it’s saving money or saving time, this mini-guide will help you move in the right direction. So, without further ado, let’s jump into the mini-guide.
Take care of the lighting
To create a flourishing ambiance in your baby’s room, it is extremely important to pay attention to the lighting. You must be thinking that why would you invest in lights for your little one, but let us tell you that light plays a vital role in your baby’s mood. A dark, drab environment without proper light fixtures can keep your honey all irritated while a room with warm lights can make your little one happy and content. Say no to harsh lighting and opt for soft LED lights to create the best ambiance. Also, try to keep the room bright in a way that doesn’t affect your baby in any way. Untreated windows in the room? Be sure to cover with blinds to even soften the natural light.
Paint but with VOC-free paint
Painting the room with cheerful colors is one of the best ways to keep your little one’s room airy. Choosing a color scheme first and planning the theme in advance is a great way to start the process. Opt for just 2-3 pastel colors or soft tones to add to create an uplifting atmosphere. Also, when decorating the baby’s room, opt for paints without volatile organic compounds (VOCs), as these paints are odorless and safe for mother and baby.
Respect a nursery silhouette art
If you have a budget constraint and you don’t want to invest in your baby’s room (because your little one will grow up and then you will have to spend more to redo the interior), then here is a clever trick to save time , money and effort. Decide on a theme you want in your newborn’s room – be it a magic touch, starry stars, a princess, animals or whatever. Now you need to print these silhouettes, carefully cut out the shapes and stick them on a background or wall. And ta-da! A cool and stylish baby room is ready and that too without breaking your pockets.
Remember to protect your baby, but in a smart way
Protecting the baby house without damaging the decor seems like an overwhelming task! But if you’re wondering what can be done because you obviously wanted to keep your little one safe, then playing it safe with stylish decor upgrades is your key. Baby-proofing in style by investing in smart interiors, like swapping sharp-edged tables with round tables, cordless blinds and plush sofas with no handles or ottomans, it’s a great way to keep babies safe with elegance.
Don’t forget to affix additional storage
It goes without saying, a baby comes with endless things (even more than you have). Be sure to invest plenty in small wooden boxes to separate everything, placing them near the crib so you don’t have to rush when your baby needs them. If you already have a wooden or iron almirah, don’t forget to protect it from babies! Invest in simple things at first because you can always spice things up later.
