Adding A Nursery

Congratulations on your new addition! During your nine months of pregnancy, you are as busy as you are with a newborn. Designing a nursery for your sweet new bundle of joy does not have to be stressful. From choosing the perfect crib finish to deciding on paint colors, decorating a nursery is fun and exciting.

Here are some key tips when it comes to designing a nursery in your Sachse home. Choose a theme for your nursery. Whether you are expecting a girl or boy or a surprise all together, choosing a theme can help bring more ideas to the table. While a theme is not necessary, having a specific design concept will give you a solid idea to work towards. Try to keep baby’s new items as organized as possible. Keeping your nursery simple and uncluttered will help bring a sense of calm in your baby’s room. Choose your baby’s crib bedding and curtains before deciding on other colors and accents for the room. Nothing is worse than setting up your nursery and falling in love with a bedding set or colors in curtains and realizing the colors you have already designed your nursery clash with the colors of these textiles. Draw color inspiration from these pieces for your nursery.

When painting your nursery, you do not want to choose a color scheme that is too loud. Buy many samples of different colored paints and test them out on the wall before painting the whole nursery and realizing that color just does not match, or even worse, you loathe it. Pastel color schemes as well as neutral color schemes work well for nursery’s because they are soft and inviting. They are not loud or distracting. Choose a paint brand that offers VOC-free, low odor interior paints. This will help prevent exposing your baby to dangerous and harmful fumes and chemicals.

Remember, your baby will be spending a lot of time in their nursery and most of it laying on their backs. Dress up their ceilings and walls with colorful fun decorations, keeping with the rooms theme or design concept. Babies love bright colorful objects and it gives them something to focus on rather than a plain ceiling or wall. Putting a neutral colored rocking chair in your Sachse home’s nursery is also a great design idea. There are many to choose from that will fit exactly what you are looking for. From wooden, to a mix of wooden and upholstered, to fully upholstered, these chairs will add to the sense of comfort. Adding a colorful throw pillow to the chair will keep the nursery from looking too drab. Curtains and window treatments are very important in a nursery, too. As mentioned before, your baby will be spending a lot of time in their nursery. This means napping throughout the day too. Curtains are a great way to filter out the bright light of the outdoors while still adding charm to the nursery.

Simplicity is key in designing a nursery, but it is important to not go too simplistic as this will transfer to boring. In such an exciting time of your life, decorating your Sachse home’s nursery should be just as exciting.
