There’s nothing quite as special for new parents as planning thenursery décor for their new arrival. It’s fun picking out colors and choosing a theme to enchant and soothe baby, but the experience can be a bit overwhelming - especially for first-time parents.

Before you head out to begin shopping for your baby’s nursery, read these tips from moms who’ve been there. Even if this isn’t your first child, you may find something useful for decorating this go-around!

  • Babies love to look at faces. Include some family photos in your nursery décor to help stimulate your baby’s senses.
  • If you have a favorite piece of art, a clothing print or a blanket that you plan to use in the room, pull colors from that for other areas of the room. This will pull everything together and give the nursery a “finished” look.
  • Be sure to have a comfortable rocker in the nursery to make those sleepless nights a little more bearable.
  • When choosing baby bedding, make sure you consider safety in addition to how well it goes with your décor. For instance, pillows are not a good idea in a baby crib.
  • Think organization. A well-organized nursery with plenty of storage space for diapers, creams, and other baby necessities makes things much easier when dealing with a fussy baby.
  • Begin decorating the nursery by choosing the crib first. The crib is typically the focal point of the room, so design the rest around that.
  • Lighting is important. Be sure you can adjust the lighting in the nursery to suit your needs. Use room-darkening window décor for daytime sleeping and include lamps with soft lighting to avoid disturbing baby at night.

 

Don’t be afraid to be creative when decorating your baby’s nursery. Include your own personal style in the room as you would the rest of the house. If you’re into modern design, incorporate that into the nursery, too. Don’t be afraid to branch out from the traditional pink and blue. Since you and your baby will be spending a great deal of time in the nursery, you both should be comfortable in it.
