If you’re a first-time parent, chances are, you’ve read a lot of blogs with an endless list of recommendations on what you need to buy, where to get it, and even some nursery ideas. But before you dive into all those things, you have to take into consideration your nursery first. This makes buying other stuff easier so your furniture and other baby essentials that will go in the nursery will aesthetically match the theme of your choice. The question is, how can you choose a nursery theme?
1. Consider Your Personal Preference
Ask yourself, who is your personal character, or what’s your favorite storybook? This is one of the things that can help you spark your creativity to get inspiration. This way, you can start looking for decorations that match your theme. For example, if you’re a Harry Potter fan, you can go with cats, wizards, or owls. It doesn’t have to be “Harry Potter-themed”, but you may use its cast to help you with the initial decor.
2. Pick A Color
The next step involves choosing a color theme. For most parents, they choose pink if they’re expecting a baby girl, or blue if they’re expecting a boy. But there are no general rules here. Pick a color that you’re comfortable with. Make sure to take into consideration to pick a color theme until they start to grow into little kids. Also, make sure to choose a color that will soothe and relax the baby – something that will help them adjust as they are welcomed to the world.
3. Use The Influence Around You For Inspiration
Are you a sports fan? Do you like sparkles, unicorns, and magic? Find fabrics, picture frames, and other things that you can incorporate inside the room. If you’re a traveler, you may even take some photos you took during one of your trips and put them on a frame.
Choosing a nursery theme may not be as tough as it seems. Sure, it’ll take a bit of time, and make sure that you do – because this is where your child will grow, their safe space.
