Easy ways to decorate every baby nursery
Is this your first time decorating a nursery? Are you unsure what to add to it? Don’t stress out; take a deep breath and check out this list of items that we compiled for you. We believe that with these following home elements, you cannot go wrong with creating a modern and stylish nursery, without compromising on comfort and function!
Choose your nursery theme
Firstly, we need to know what we are working with, that is, what style or theme we are going for in our baby room. Are we planning to create a baby princess look or a jungle look, or maybe have some fun with farm animals? Let your creativity fly while choosing what theme you think is best. If you need inspiration, check Pinterest, Instagram, or baby magazines! There are plenty of ideas out there to help you! Once you know what you want, you can start choosing all the other elements according to your theme to create a clean harmonious space.
Choose the right color
Once you know what your overall theme is, you can start thinking about the colors of your wall paint, the furniture, and any other accessory you wish to add, When it comes to color, stick to lighter and warmer tones as these softer colors promote a calm environment for your baby to thrive in. Always remember to check that all of these colored home elements, like paint, furniture, and linen, are non-toxic and safe for babies.
Invest in good bed linen
There is plenty of lovely bed linen out there for our little ones! But while we can be attracted to vibrant colors, and fancy patterns, make sure that you are checking the quality above all other things. Your baby will most likely be spending many hours of the day in a crib. In fact, the Baby Center explains that all newborns spend up to 18 hours sleeping in 24 hours. So while staying within the colors and style of your theme, remember to choose products that are made of cotton or soft hypoallergenic materials that will not cause any irritation to your baby.
Add a comfortable chair
You definitely need a comfortable chair in your nursery for when you are holding or nursing your baby. We think a rocking chair is ideal for these purposes. There is something so comforting about a mother slowly rocking their precious one to sleep while singing them a lullaby. One more thing to think about is whether the chair is easy to move so that you can drag it anywhere in the room when you need to. You may also add a fluffy pillow or cushion to support your lower back and feel even more comfortable.
Invest in rugs and carpets
Many parents prefer wall-to-wall carpets in their baby’s nursery, mainly for comfortable walking. If you are leaning towards that, just make sure that your carpets are hypoallergenic. The risk of allergies is highest with carpets, and the newborn baby doesn’t have a high immunity like infants and adults. If you are unsure, a better idea is to find rugs that can be added anywhere in the nursery.
At Sukhi, we always encourage our customers to add rugs to their nurseries, and for good reason! Not only do we guarantee that our rugs are of the highest quality and safe for babies, but they also enhance the entire look of your room in one instance! We think that the best choice of rug for your nursery is felt ball rugs. You can add any round or rectangle felt ball rugs in front of the nursing chair or crib. You can also place a soft felt ball rug near the play area. They are made of 100% pure wool, non-toxic and reversible making them safe and durable.
Why you should add rugs to your baby’s nursery
Decorating the nursery is no less complicated than decorating any other room in your house! Putting up everything before the baby arrives can be somewhat stressful and overwhelming. We definitely understand why! As a parent, you want everything to be perfect to welcome your little one. But don’t worry, we got you covered. With this blog, you will be able to create your own nursery the way you envisioned it to be. Your self-made DIY nursery will end up looking like a thoroughly planned project, worthy of Pinterest!
Here’s one simple yet impactful way to elevate your nursery room within seconds! Adding a felt ball rug! We believe that soft and cozy felt ball rugs can add colors to make your nursery really pop! Simply add a vibrant felt ball rug if you want to make the room look colorful. It’s a child’s room, so comfort is as important as the outlook. You will most certainly be spending a lot of time in your baby’s nursery so adding something that brings warmth, padding, and stuffing will make it easy to stand, walk, or sit on the hard floor. If you are not a fan of a color spectrum and are looking for a more minimalist look, try going for a neutral colored felt ball rug.
How to pick the right felt ball rug for your nursery
Now that it is clear that rugs, especially felt ball rugs, make a perfect add-on to the baby nursery, the next step is to learn how to pick the right one. Most people go for anything that looks good to them. Although love at first sight for shopping is fine for most things, when this shopping involves a baby, you know that you can’t experiment. So to help you, here is a step-by-step guide on how to choose the right rug for your baby’s nursery:
Step 1: Measure the space
The first thing you should do is measure the nursery and the open area available for styling. Most people like to add a rug near the door, in front of the crib, or at your chair's foot space. After your baby learns to walk, you can also add another felt ball rug around his play area so that he can comfortably sit and play with his toys.
Step 2: Set your preferences
Rugs, mostly felt ball rugs come in various shapes, sizes, and color schemes. If the nursery’s color scheme looks monotonous to you, adding a bright colored or multicolored felt ball rug can cheer it up instantly. The room's shape and size will help you decide whether you should go for a round-shaped felt ball rug or a rectangle felt ball rug.
Step 3: Ensure an ethical purchase
When buying your felt ball rug for your baby’s nursery make sure that you are shopping ethically. Sukhi rugs are made from 100% fresh, ethically obtained wool from New Zealand. The artisans from Nepal that work a splendid job in crafting our rugs are paid up to 3 times the average salary in the region, as per our fair trade practices. This not only ensures high-quality products made by passionate workers but also links a beautiful, soothing aura to the rug itself. The language of love passes on in many forms, indeed!
You can also design a felt ball rug of your own color scheme, design, size, and shape. In fact, Sukhi offers DIY felt ball rugs. You can get a customized rug as per your liking and preference; besides, it is a fun project to do and you get to work closely with the Sukhi designers to create something wonderful!
Final step: Relax and welcome your baby
Finally, once you purchase your ideal felt ball rug, set it in the nursery in the spot you chose. Now, it is time for some relaxation while waiting for your precious baby to arrive.
