The baby’s due date is coming up fast, but the nursery is nowhere near finished! Before you start to panic, however, read the tips below. We’ll let you in on a little secret, or even three, to help kick start your baby room project and make the process feel less overwhelming.
1. Keep it simple
Yup, you read right. Older kids like a lot of color and variety, but not babies. Babies can get too stimulated and overwhelmed if there is a lot going on in one small area. Make the decorating process a lot easier on yourself and design a nursery that your baby will love by keeping the decor simple. A few hanging accessories will do the trick.
2. Follow your style
Parents often disagree with their kids when it comes to taste, but not with babies. Your baby isn’t going to have an opinion on whether your style is too sophisticated or eclectic, so follow your instincts to design a room that matches your personal preference. Designing the baby’s room in a style you love makes the decorating process more fun and a lot easier.
3. Choose calming colors
Once again, babies can get easily overstimulated. Not only do you want to avoid overdoing it with the decor, you also want to choose calming colors over bright shades. Soft pinks, purples, blues and greens are perfect for the baby room because they are nurturing and relaxing.
Babies might require a lot of attention and care, but they are pretty low maintenance when it comes to nursery decor. As long as you keep the design simple and soothing, your baby is sure to love his or her new home.
