What are the do’s and don ts of decorating nurseries?
Here are some do’s and don’ts to keep in mind when decorating a nursery:
- Choose soothing and calming colors: Soft and pastel colors like light blues, greens, pinks, and yellows can create a peaceful and relaxing environment for a baby.
- Ensure safety: Make sure all furniture and decor items are safe for babies and meet safety standards. Avoid using items with sharp edges or small parts that can be a choking hazard.
- Make it functional: The nursery should have everything necessary for taking care of a baby, including a crib, changing table, dresser, and storage space for clothes, diapers, and other baby essentials.
- Add personal touches: Incorporate personal touches like family photos, a special stuffed animal or blanket, or artwork created by family members.
- Use blackout curtains: Blackout curtains can help create a dark and calming environment for a baby to sleep in.
- Use harsh colors: Avoid using bold, bright, or neon colors that can be overwhelming and overstimulating for babies.
- Overdecorate: Keep the space simple and clutter-free to avoid overwhelming the baby with too many decorations.
- Use fragrances or strong scents: Avoid using air fresheners, scented candles, or other fragrances as they can be irritating and overwhelming for babies.
- Hang heavy or dangerous items: Avoid hanging heavy or sharp items on walls or near the crib that could fall and harm the baby.
- Choose uncomfortable furniture: Make sure all furniture is comfortable and safe for both the baby and caregivers. Avoid using uncomfortable or rickety chairs, sofas, or benches.
