Decorating a nursery for the new addition to your family can be overwhelming at first. Luckily, all you need is a bit of creativity and a plan. Every nursery will need three main areas: a place for the child to sleep, a place to change the baby and finally a place to feed and hold the newborn.
Many times nurseries are painted in pastels, blues, pinks, yellows or greens. There are also a wide variety of themes to choose from, such as princess, fairy tale, sports, pirate or jungle. You can also use stencils to add some variety to the room. Stencils are easy to use and find in a variety of styles and shapes. Finally, you can also use wall decals which are easy to peel and stick to the wall.
2. Sleeping Area
A child's sleeping area will need a crib. Ideally the crib will be close to the door of the room but a distance away from windows to avoid sunlight and breeze. For safety, keep the crib area as simple as possible. To block out the lights when the baby is napping, add curtains or blinds to the windows. You can use colors in the window fixture to further brighten the room.
3. Changing Table
In the changing area you will have your changing table. To avoid overcrowding your room, consider using a changing table that is also a dresser. These come in a variety of colors and prints and can be matched to your chosen colors and themes. White changing tables can be decorated with stencils or decals as well.
4. Feeding Area
The feeding and holding zone will need comfortable seating for you and a small side table, for resting the baby's bottle on. You can match your chair and side table with the changing table and crib. Consider buying a rocking chair that will be ideal when holding the baby and trying to put it to sleep. The motion of the rocking chair will be a perfect movement for you and child to bond in a peaceful way.
5. Fun Mobiles
This can be another way to complement the ongoing theme of your room. Many are reasonably priced and come in many different shapes and colors. This room is all about the fun and care of the child, mobiles will ensure they enjoy it.
