What Goes in a Baby's Nursery?
There are many items you can use to decorate your baby's nursery. Here's a list of some of
the most popular components of a baby's room.
Paint (paint the room a color that enhances your decor theme)
Blankets, crib pads and sheets
Chest of Drawers
Toys and Stuffed Animals
Light Switch Plates or Covers
Decorative Wall Pictures and Wall Border
Theme Floor Rugs
You're probably thinking that there are many items to buy! Don't be alarmed. Many of
these items can be found at thrift shops or packaged together at discounted prices. You can
also shop online for some of your nursery items if you're pressed for time.
Decorate for the Long Term
One thing to remember is that your baby will not be a baby for long. He or she will grow
quickly, and before you realize it, will be walking and talking. This is something to take into
consideration while planning your nursery decor. Develop a theme you'll be able to keep at
least through the toddler years and maybe even until your child is six or seven years old.
Try to avoid themes that will only work for a newborn baby if possible. This will save
money and time later on.
Themes to Consider
Below are some different types of themes for baby nursery decor to get your wheels
Many babies are welcomed into this world with some of mom's favorite cartoon characters.
Whether it's Winnie the Pooh(TM), Mickey Mouse(TM) or any other character, there are
hundreds of decor items to choose from. Disney(TM) releases many products that cater to
baby rooms, such as children's lamps and light switch covers, toys, building blocks, etc.
Animal themes are also a favorite for many moms. You can choose any animal (or a group
of animals) and build a decor with colors and photos of the animals. Blankets, rugs, lamps,
curtains, etc. can have animal designs on them. Keep in mind that not all animal themes are
available on the decor market. You'll have to see what's available, and go from there.
Another way to create a nursery theme is to use your favorite colors. Perhaps you want to
create a certain mood in your baby's room. Earth tones and pastels will give the room a
soothing, serene look and feel. Bright blues, pinks and reds add a playful tone to a room.
Whatever mood you'd like to create can be accomplished with certain colors.
Nature themes are another option. Build an underwater wonderland for your baby with fish
and ocean scenes, and colors to match. Create an imaginary forest with jungle scenes of
trees, wild animals, etc. Build a farm theme with barns, farm animals, grass and fields. As
your baby begins to walk and talk, he'll feel like an explorer in his own room!
Fruits, Flowers and Gardens
Other popular themes are created using floral patterns, colorful fruits and garden themes.
Babies are amazed at the colors and textures of these items when their eyesight becomes
focused. These are simple, but decorative themes that can be used for several years as
your baby grows.
No matter what your baby nursery theme, you can use simple decor items to enhance the
room and create a room of wonder for your baby!
