Decorating your baby’s room is what enlightens all the mothers. Your baby has just arrived in your small world and is constantly keeping you on your toes. You had made all the arrangements necessary for your child before their arrival. You have most likely hired the best interior designer or might have started decorating his or her first room on your own. Many think that decorating a baby’s room is very easy, but you need to keep in mind a lot of points while decorating your child’s room; after all your baby deserves a perfect place of his or her own. Here are a few steps that you can take while decorating your baby’s room.
Color Speaks Volume
The color of the walls enhances the look of the room. It is one of the first things someone notices when entering the room.Typically you use the color blue for a boy and pink for a girl, but make sure you choose the correct shade and texture. If you want to use wallpaper, choose very wisely to make it look like a child’s room.
Do not overdo the decorations, as it may look tacky and shabby after sometime. If you can, spill proof the walls; if your baby spills or draws something on the walls, you could easily wipe and remove the wall stains. Today a lot of water and spill proof paints are available in the market.
Disruptions Are Unwelcomed
Avoid putting T.V, computers, or music systems in your baby’s room. They might be a source of disturbance and distraction for your baby. You would not want to spoil your baby from such a young age.
The lighting in the room should be bright so that the baby could play without any discomfort as well as dim when you need to make your baby sleep. The light should not directly be above the baby’s crib.
Position of the Crib
It is important to place the crib of the baby in a right direction. Never position the crib near a window or the door. The crib should be away from stairs, or objects from where the baby could climb or jump. The walls of the crib are high so that the baby could not jump and come out of it.
Perfect Bedding Is the Secret
For a good night’s sleep, we always look for a comfortable mattress. The same applies to your baby. Please do a lot of research and look for a firm and comfortable mattress so that your baby can sleep with ease.
Always remember to choose soft music with a soothing effect that could make your baby sleep sooner. Remember, loud sounds could disrupt your baby’s sleep.
Risks & Some Safety Precautions
The safety of the baby should be your first concern while decorating your baby’s room. Keep things like water and eatables away from the reach of your baby. Never keep toys in the crib. Have a separate section where you can keep toys, clothes, and other things.
Always baby proof the cupboards and drawers in the room because this is where your child spends most of his or her time. Always see to it that the door lock is safe and could not be easily locked. Also, make sure the window is out of reach and not a risk to your child.
Never keep small tiny objects in the baby’s room or near the baby. The baby might eat or get hurt from things like screws, nails, safety pins, matchsticks and other things that are similar. Keep the baby monitor in the room at a distance where the baby’s voice could reach it.
Decorate your baby’s room with style while bearing in mind all the precautionary measures needed so that you could rest in your room without getting worried while your baby is sleeping peacefully in his room.
