Decorating a nursery is no easy task. There are lots of things to consider, the furniture, the colors to paint the walls, and off course you have to consider safety. For most people, picking out a nursery theme is the most exciting aspect of decorating a nursery. Your choice of theme has a huge effect on the final outlook of your nursery, which is why picking a theme should be the first order of business when decorating a nursery.
When it comes to themes for baby rooms, you can never run out of options. You might decide to go with a gender specific theme, or make it gender neutral especially if you intend to have more kids. This way, you don’t have to stress yourself trying to remodel when you’re expecting another baby. Imagine having a nursery with a princess theme and your next child is a boy, or a car themed nursery for a little girl. This might seem a little out of place, which is why a gender neutral theme is perfect for such situations.
Geometric patterns and shapes as well as bright colors should feature in your decoration especially if you want a nursery that can stimulate your baby. It has been discovered that colors blue, yellow and red stimulate infants. This can also be achieved with a geometric shaped wall décor and bedding especially where the patterns and shapes are considerably large. This helps babies see better considering the fact that it takes a couple of months after birth for their visions to fully develop.
At the end of the day, just make sure you pick a theme that you can tolerate for some years. In most cases, babies don’t get to move to toddler rooms until they’re about two or three, so if you really want to be economical you can pick a theme that they can grow into as toddlers. The fact that toddler beds and cribs are about the same size means you can continue with the same bedding and theme for your toddler’s room. Don’t forget to have fun and enjoy the process because this is supposed to be a joyous period in your
life, one that you should always associate with fond memories.
