Ready to bring in the newest member of your home? It must be quite an exciting experience to welcome new life to the family, especially in 2022! The year promises optimism and good health, which gives us more hope to celebrate. If you’ve planned to have your baby in a separate room, it is a rite of passage to decorate the tiny tot’s abode. Don’t worry if you don’t know the gender of your child or want to surprise yourselves; decorating baby rooms to be inclusive, fun, and warm regardless of gender can be exciting too! There is a certain mystery involved, which we love. As new parents, it’s easy to go all out and overboard when it comes to room decoration, but it’s wiser to save your money for better things. Today, we’re going to give you five tips to decorate your newest member’s room in creative ways without spending a bomb on it!
- Add a splash of animation: Children can’t see right away, but they eventually do and become primarily dependent on their vision. Hence, it is necessary to make the room look cheerful and warm, especially if they will be sleeping separately. Add a splash of colour with cute toys, faerie charms, and child-friendly pillows around the room to make it as cozy as possible. Remember to paint the room a warm but gentle colour so that it looks bright and open without natural sunlight. You can put up toys from animated characters and watch them grow to love these toys in months.
- Decorate with aesthetic wall art: Many parents paint the walls with cartoons, but if you’d like to keep it more aesthetic, get some beautiful rustic decor & wall art. These could be flowers, butterflies, pretty portraits or even gorgeous Hallmark cards to liven up the room. Getting such artwork online these days is more affordable than adding new wallpaper, so it’s a great option.
- Stick Glow in the dark stars: Introduce your Generation-C member to the cosmos early by helping them stay entertained; glow in the dark stars are lovely to look at once the lights go out. They also serve the purpose of providing a soft light in a room at night, which your child will appreciate.
- Install rice paper blinds: The first few months are haywire with the baby’s uncertain sleep pattern. Natural daylight plays a big role when they sleep, so make sure to add rice paper or even normal blinds that dim the light outside to help them sleep longer.
- Have a chair or seating area: Baby rooms are full of plush toys and soft things, but having a chair or small sofa where the parents or relatives can sit while monitoring the baby makes things more comfortable. You can also rock the baby while sitting instead of giving yourself a backache pacing around the room!
We advise you to add a table where you can change the baby’s nappies or install the baby monitor as well! These were our five baby room essentials that don’t take a lot out of your pocket but also create a comfy setup.
