Unisex Baby Nursery Decorating Tips
Whether the room is large, or has a small cozy feeling, you can easily turn a simple-looking room, into a gorgeous baby nursery. For those looking to create a baby nursery room designed for either gender, there are a number of tips that you can use. You can start with the colors. Some neutral colors that you may want to consider for the nursery are yellows, greens, whites, and even browns. Avoid using red in a baby nursery because that is the first color most babies recognize and it can create excitement or confusion when it is the only color they see, and it may interfere with sleeping. While decorating a nursery, include accents or accessories you love and ask relatives for their opinions or ideas. Then, you can use pictures from old children’s books. You can frame the pictures and include the words from the pages, which will help as your baby grows and begins to read. Wallpaper, large wall graphics and stencils are other affordable ways to brighten up the walls.
You might also consider adding a daybed in the baby nursery, especially for those first few weeks when you are likely to spend many nights getting up and down with your new baby. This will allow you to get a little sleep when your baby is sleeping, reducing your exhaustion during your initial adjustment to parenthood. And consider placing a plastic storage container with drawers next to the changing table or crib so you will have easy access when you need it.
