If you’re expecting a child, you are probably already planning out the colors, decorations, and furnishings for the baby’s nursery. As an expecting parent, you want to create a space for your precious baby that is not only functional, but also stylish and serene. Today, we will explore some decorating tips for you to consider to design the perfect baby’s room that is calming, comfortable, and peaceful to inspire sleep.

Natural Lighting

Lighting is important for your baby’s room. While you will need to see well when changing and dressing your baby, it is also essential to create a space that makes use of both natural and artificial lighting, that doesn’t go too far on the extremely bright to drab and dark spectrums. If you can, set up your nursery in a room that has a big window and make use of blinds and drapes that can help to either brighten a room or darken it. Placing a small lamp such as a Himalayan salt lamp on a dresser can create a calming glow during naptime and bedtime that gives off the perfect level of light. You can even change the bulb in the salt lamp to create a lower level of lighting with a relaxing color such as blue, green, or violet.

Shag Rug or Carpet

Many homes these days feature hardwood floors or laminate flooring for an immaculate look. The trouble is, these floors are loud when people walk on them, which can make it difficult to enter your baby’s room while they’re asleep if you need to put laundry away. If you have hardwood floors in your baby’s room, pad them with a shag rug that will reduce footstep noises. These rugs are also quite comfy for a nursing parent’s feet and provide a soft space for your baby to crawl and walk on when they reach that stage. If your nursery has hard carpeting, you might consider either laying down a shag rug or replacing it with shag carpet for coziness.

Choose Calming Colors

The colors you choose for your baby’s room can have an effect on their mood. Choosing a blue color scale can create a calming, cooling atmosphere, while green creates a calming, serene, and nurturing space. Violets and purples are much more calming than energizing pinks, and, of course, white and other neutral colors create a clean and peaceful atmosphere. No matter what color palette you choose, it’s best to avoid bright colors for a baby nursery.

Reduce Dust and Allergens

As a parent, you want your child to be healthy and happy, but sometimes, dust, allergens, and other airborne particles in homes can irritate babies’ respiratory systems. Keeping a humidifier in their room can moisturize the air, which can help them breathe better. Also, Himalayan salt lamps are known to improve air quality by fighting positively charged particles with negative ions, which can reduce allergens, pollen, pet dander, and other pollutants in the air. Place a Himalayan salt lamp near your baby’s crib to eliminate allergens and pollutants in their room.
