Decorating your baby's room is bound to be a wonderful, fun experience. The possibilities are endless and you might just get carried away with the sheer variety of colors, patterns, furniture and lighting. Keep in mind, however, that safety and comfort are the two most important criteria when designing your baby's room. Here are some tips to get you started.
Baby room decor ideas are available in plenty and this is a great opportunity for you to unleash your creativity. You can choose from floral patterns, superheroes, cars, rockets and animals to decorate your baby’s room. Babies love vibrant colors and it also contributes to a bright, positive atmosphere in the room. Use bright splashes of paint on the walls such as lemon yellow, lavender, blue and pink. It is a good idea to match your baby's crib with the rest of the room. For instance, if you choose ‘fairy tales’ as the theme, look for a crib in the shape of a princess coach. Similarly for a boy, you can go in for a racing car-shaped crib. Remember to also add matching accessories such as lamps and wall hangings.
One of the best kid's room design ideas is to use handmade items. Look for shops that keep stitched window treatments or curtains. You can also use handmade quilts and rugs to lend a cozy, homely feel to the room. Choose from brand new or vintage stuff. You can even make them yourself. Don't forget to also shop for handmade furniture such as cribs and toy cupboards.
Choosing the right colors for baby rooms is helpful in creating the right mood. Apart from colors, however, lighting also plays a vital role. It should be easy to darken the room during the day so that your baby can take naps. However, you don't want to shut out all the natural light. Opt for window blinds that help to keep out bright sunlight, while still allowing some amount of light to enter the room. Enjoy the decorating experience!
