Baby Nursery Decor Tips

With the creation of ultrasounds, many expectant parents know the sex of their baby before it is born. Are you one of them? If so, that knowledge can help you design a room specifically for your baby. If not, never fear, there are plenty of gender-neutral themes and designs to use in a nursery. Even after knowing the sex of their baby, some parents choose to remain gender neutral with the theme. The ultrasound could have been fuzzy, the doctor wasn't sure, or just wanting a neutral theme for baby are all reasons to consider before making your decision.

Therefore, your first decision as soon-to-be parents is boy themed, girl themed or neutral. Once you make that decision, you can move forward. Neutral, Please You've decided to go with a neutral them for your baby's room. To begin decorating you can go one of two routes. Pick the wall color first and then look for matching bedding or two, pick out the bedding and then coordinate the paint scheme. The furniture you bring into the room can also factor into the decor, as there are many options now.

Most baby furniture is made of wood that can be stained a light color, painted white, or uses its natural cherry, oak or even pine colorings. Noah's Ark A Noah's Ark theme incorporates animals in its decor more so than religion. Either sex loves animals, and Noah was one who brought them all together. In a Noah's Ark room, the bedding, sheets, curtains and even rugs can all carry the same motif.

The Noah's Ark theme can be used as the child grows up too, since any of the stuffed animals they receive growing up will match! Install a stuffed animal net in the corner for displaying all of the creatures. Paint a window or several windows with animals poking their heads out on the wall in lieu of pictures. Add a rainbow across part of the ceiling and a dove with an olive branch to complete the theme. Winnie the Pooh This lovable old friend is perfect for anybody! Who doesn't like a fluffy hug? Winnie the Pooh motifs have many different styles to choose from in of itself.

There are bright colors, pastel colors, color blocks and beige designs to choose from. Paint a huge tree on one wall and make a sign that says 100 Acre Wood so it is just like where Pooh lives. Murals or pictures of the rest of the cast along the walls add for more color. Stars and Moons Many nursery rhymes involve the stars and the moon. And since the stars and moon represent bedtime, there isn't a better place to use this theme. Little glow in the dark stars can be placed on the ceiling and around the room with sticky stuff.

Make sure when placing the stars that they are not where they can fall into the bed or be pulled off and put into the mouth. If you don't want sticky residue, paint stars on the ceiling. Be serious and follow the patterns of the constellations. Be creative, add the planets, and give them all a happy face.
