The Baby Breakdown: How to Decorate a Nursery

Posted on by Starlane

When you bring a new baby into the home, a lot of unexpected changes will arise throughout this exciting chapter in your life, but that does not mean you have to stress about the little things (literally and metaphorically). Decorating the nursery should be a top priority when welcoming the new addition to your home because most of your time will be spent in this room. However, we can help make it a little easier with some decorating tips and ideas.

1) Put a name on it!

Choosing your baby’s name is probably the most important decision you will make during this new journey, so why not display it in the room for everyone to see? Writing your baby’s name on the wall customizes the room creating a gorgeous aesthetic. It is definitely the ideal accent piece.

2) The crib dilemma

Deciding on a crib for your baby’s nursery can be difficult and overwhelming because there are plenty of options to choose from. A more affordable option are the Venetian convertible cribs that come in an assortment of colours and sizes. Another option is to give the room a true “at-home” feel by building your own wooden crib and painting it any colour you would like!

3) A seat for you too!

Take into consideration that you will be spending long nights and early mornings in the nursery, so your comfort is equally as important when making the décor arrangements. We recommend picking an oversized couch chair and opt for the matching foot rest. You may also want to select a nursery chair, specifically made to rock bath and forth. This will keep you relaxed and ensure your baby stays calm.

4) Storage spaces

Before you know it, you will have stacks of baby accessories and necessities like clothes, toys and diapers with no space to store it all. That is why purchasing dressers and night stands are a must when decorating. Get creative with your storage solutions and transform your closet into a walk-in baby store by putting shelves or a built-in changing table.
