Newborn Nursery Decorating Tips

Newborn Nursery Decorating Tips

As you’re waiting for your bundle of joy to arrive, it’s time to decorate their nursery! This will help all you moms-to-be with those feelings of nesting, while slowly but surely creating a place for you to relax and nurture your new baby.

Don’t know where to start? Here’s a guide on some newborn nursery decorating tips to help get you inspired.

Think simple and classic

It is easy to forget that you’ll most likely be redecorating this room in a few years, so make sure to keep simple and classic themes in the forefront of your mind when you’re coming up with your decor. Despite popular belief, you don’t always have to choose a theme that is “baby specific”. Instead, you can simply go with a muted color scheme, a few pictures, a chair, and complementary bedding.

As an additional tip: instead of painting a full mural on the wall, consider choosing a nice solid color and picking removable wall and ceiling decals. Some colors to consider are ivory, pale green, lavender, navy blue, gray, and tan.

Invest in furniture that will last

It is incredibly tempting to buy furniture that is marketed specifically for a nursery, but you’ll want to focus on functional furniture rather than pretty furniture. This means you should only purchase pieces that you can use for multiple years to come. Think cribs that can turn into toddler beds, rocking chairs that can become a reading nook, and side tables that have additional storage built right in.

In addition, to ensure your furniture lasts for a while, you’ll want to invest in pieces that aren’t too trendy. Clean lines, muted colors, and pieces without removable hardware are good options. as they won’t become hazards when your child grows.

Get creative with pictures

You don’t have to go overboard with pictures in the nursery; all you need are a couple of focal pieces and you will be set. Consider going an alternative route and print your pictures on an Instagram canvas, where you can pick a picture from your social media profile, upload it, and receive a beautiful piece of artwork to display! A popular idea is to pick a picture of you and your partner, so your child can always have a picture of you both to look at.

Ask for decor at your baby shower

In addition to your canvas prints, asking for decor at your baby shower will add a loving touch to the newborn’s room. Chances are, you already have a lot of outfits and essentials already, so why not fill the child’s room with decorative pieces from those who love them?

Keep everything within reach of the changing table

You’ll soon have a wriggling baby you need to attend to, so make sure everything you can possibly need is within arm’s reach of the changing table. This includes wipes, cream, towels, outfits, onesies, favorite toys (to use as a distraction) an extra bottle or pacifier, and the garbage. A simple changing table with a few drawers can work wonders for your convenience.

Only include bare minimum bedding

Baby blankets and sheets are not only soft, but they’re adorable! So it can be hard creating the perfect sleep situation for your child, as you will likely want to buy everything. However, stick to the bare minimum when it comes to things that go inside their crib: a fitted sheet, one blanket, and a stuffed animal. Too many other things can create a suffocation hazard.

With these tips in mind, you’ll be on your way to creating the perfect environment for your brand new little one.
