Decorating a nursery is a sometimes challenging, but fun task for parents. It is an opportunity to create a safe, comfortable and inspiring space for children to play, learn and grow. For those who don’t know where to start, in this article you will find some tips!
Safety above all
When furnishing a children’s room, safety should be a priority. Make sure all furniture is sturdy and stable, and has no sharp edges. If you do have furniture that has sharp edges that could hurt your child, it is best to shield it. You can also cover sockets with childproof plugs. It is also best to provide window protection and choose paint and materials that ensure the health of your child.
A children’s room should not only be beautiful, but also practical and functional. So think carefully about the layout of the space before you start shopping. Make sure you have enough storage space for toys, books and clothes. To limit the number of furniture, you can go for multifunctional furniture such as a bed with a built-in drawer or a desk with storage space. This way you maximize the available space and you can organize the room well.
Color scheme and decoration
The color scheme plays an important role in the atmosphere that the nursery exudes. If you have chosen a certain theme, make sure that the colors fit well with that theme. Avoid excessive use of bright colors and prefer soft tones. They have a calming effect. To brighten up the room and give it a personal touch, you can add various decorative elements. For example, choose wall stickers, paintings or posters. Custom window decoration also gives an extra dimension to the room. For example, choose a curtain in a brighter color, then it forms an accent next to the soft tones on the walls.
Lighting plays a crucial role in the nursery, both practical and atmospheric. Provide sufficient natural light during the day by using, for example, shutters or blinds that can be easily opened and closed, and you can enjoy more privacy. For the evening you can choose from a combination of general lighting, such as ceiling lamps or wall lamps, and accent lighting that accentuates a reading corner or play area. Also consider using night lights to reassure your child during the night and you also create a soothing atmosphere.
