Choosing and creating a nursery can be hard and stressful, especially if it’s your first time. And it is easy to understand why – you want the best for your child, and will not stand for anything less. Choosing the right room, the right theme, suitable changing table, a perfect crib… List goes on and on. But, ladies and some really cool gentleman, we are here to help with some ideas and tips.
Keep it light – in choosing a color pattern for your baby’s room you need to be very careful. Not all colors are desirable and some have special effect on your baby. So, a good advice is to keep it light. If you want to have a white room, that is perfect. A lot of natural light and white walls go great and are kinda default. You can furnish your room to continue the light theme, with white table and crib, but also toys and accessory. This room will always be pleasant to walk in to, it will give out a feeling of purity and innocence, and your kid will love it. This room will also be perfect for your child no matter the gender. Boys and girls enjoy the light alike.
Girls – if you have a baby girl, it is more likely you will go for a soft and warm theme for the nursery room. Color palette in this case will favor purple and pink variations, but gold, green, soft red and orange are not unusual. Nurseries for girls traditionally have a soft vibe to them, they are a safe place for your little princess to dream and grow. Themes go exactly like that, and some great recommendations are: princess in a castle, Victorian nursery, variations with pink, a lot of fluffiness and general cuteness. When choosing materials you should opt for softer ones, as they will make it more girly. Cotton, wool and kashmir are your friends. natural materials like wood are also welcome and work well.
Boys – for boys, things are different, naturally. Colors go more to the cooler ones, like blue and green, but that is not the rule set in stone. You can and you should experiment and make it unique, just as every child is unique. With boys, themed nursery rooms sometimes tend to spiral out of control, as fathers are known to go a little bit overboard with wacky ideas – but it is usually good. Themes go from general sports themes to actual teams for colors and fan items, showing a future of the kid. Cars, robots, cartoons and movies are common motives in boy’s rooms. Boy’s nurseries go great with both natural and other materials, wood is great and so is metal. You can get away with plastic, too, and you can use stone, if you know how. Painting the walls with different colors or illustrations is also common for boys and you won’t make a mistake if you opt for that.
