Baby Bedroom – Making your child’s bedroom is quite the fun experience. Every thing starts with picking the best furniture, bedding, and wall accents. Furniture is perhaps the most important in determining the style and feel of the space. When you have selected the crib and crib canopy, you’ll want to choose matching furniture. What I mean by matching is that you will need the shades of the wooden or the iron crib to be complemented by the furniture. If you don’t like a lot of decisions and want your baby’s furniture to match exactly, there are a lot of pre-set styles to choose from. However, if you’re planning to showcase the colors in your crib, there is gorgeous baby furniture in every style and color you can imagine. Just make sure that the color of your child’s room is a solid backdrop for your pieces of furniture. When it comes to color, you could choose to either go solid or go mural. Colorful and bright accessories look great against a solid color. With murals, the options are endless. You might make your ceiling look like clouds and your floor like plants, or you could have a jungle scene as a backdrop to the crib. Simple accessories accent murals best.
After you have the appropriate wall color for your crib and crib canopy with matching furniture, you can move on and find the right bedding. Bedding is a good place to start in establishing exactly what the rest of the baby room accessories are going to be. For instance, a jungle theme can have jungle animal bedding, along with a matching baby blanket, bumper, dust ruffle, and valance. There are also places where you can find a matching diaper stacker and wall hangings, which is certain to make your decorating process a breeze.
Now imagine your little girl’s name inscribed in carefully carved pink letters hanging above her crib. Possibly a few framed pictures of a lion, monkey, and hippo would be wonderful over your boy’s crib. You can have your pick of creative wall hangings that will make your child’s room full of character. To go with your theme, you can get a safari wall shelf for your boy’s toys, or wooden hooks crafted to look like crowns for your little princess. Don’t forget to find the perfect picture frame for his/her little foot prints or baby’s first day home. The possibilities are almost endless so have fun and let your imagination run wild.
After you have the right crib with a matching crib canopy, your furniture, and all your wall decorations, there’s the thrill of finding those last handful of extras for your baby’s room. Window covers, lamps, area rugs along with other assorted items will finish the picture and make your new born’s room not only a piece of art but a room of complete serenity and tranquility.
Exactly how much sunshine enters into your child’s room will decide what type of window covering you should have. If there is going to be direct sunlight, then you might pick a floor to ceiling fabric panel that’s heavy enough to block out all light or a cordless roman shade. For those hot days, purchase a complementary sheer layer designed to provide the perfect touch of class. Pick from various curtain rods with delicate glass butterflies, flowers, or stars on the ends to add the final touch.
Lighting for your baby’s room is critical. Nice gentle light for the mornings or bright light for changing all those diapers is helpful for both you and your baby. There are two ways to achieve this. One is to purchase a dimmer switch for your ceiling light to make sure you control the level of brightness. Another way is to have a few lamps which you can turn on anytime you want to avoid those harsh ceiling lights. From zebra-print to lace, a few lamps generally allow for more creativity, since they have numerous styles.
Balancing design and durability is essential while looking for the right rug. Keep in mind how long you want that rug to last. Do you want to save the same rug for more than one child? Is the child likely to be playing mostly in his/her room, or do they have a different play area? Is this rug going over a hardwood floor or carpeted floor? For a hardwood floor, you may want a very cushy and soft rug that will be the ideal play spot. If you have a carpeted room, thickness won’t be a problem, and you may want a number of small rugs as highlights.
Storage containers like baskets are one more consideration in the pursuit of design and flexibility. Baskets of all materials work well as long as they fit into bookcases and can easily be labeled. Mirrors, cute mobiles, clocks, growth charts and decorative dresser nobs are all wonderful solutions to add uniqueness to your baby room. Most importantly, be sure you make your baby’s room a place where precious memories can be built.
