As with any transformation, all the work is in the planning process, and of you don’t get this right, then you may be headed for disaster. Read on for a quick how to guide to designing your baby boy nursery.
Find Your Theme: Whether you decide on a vintage look, or a modern look, or nautical or animal themed, there are so many choices available. Once you have a theme in mind you will need to start thinking about accessories as well. Ranging from baby boy cot set, to curtains and carpets, there is something for everyone when it comes to baby room ideas. Some of the most popular themes at the moment include rustic and cosmic looks, so it just goes to show you don’t always have to stick to the norm.
Find Your Color: You may already have a color in mind for your baby boy nursery. If so, then think about whether you want the room in this one solid color or broken up with a hint of another color. Popular colors for baby boys this year are periwinkle blue and browns for the rustic themed nurseries. A great tip to remember when painting your nursery is that by adding an accent to the wall in a rich color you can add depth and dimension to the room.
All in the Detail: Once you have your theme and color scheme worked out you can start thinking about the smaller details like accessories. Adding decorative pictures or small ornaments can transform any baby boy nursery into something stylish. Accessories don’t have to cost the Earth either. Hunt online for different bargains that are just waiting to be found. Also remember to check out different sections relevant to the theme you have chosen (i.e. for a sports theme look in sports shops as well as baby stores).
Personalize it: Once you have all of the above in place, it is time to add the finishing touches to the room such as some personalized items. Things like photo frames and personalized quilts are a great way to make your baby boy’s nursery look more homely and loving. For keepsake items, many people choose to have a piece of jewellery engraved for the newborn which could either be worn or displayed nicely within the nursery.
