Simple Baby Room Ideas

Welcoming a new family member is an exciting time, but sometimes the task list can seem endless. There are so many decisions to make, including preparing your home for the arrival of the baby. Where should the changing table go? Should I choose a bassinet or a crib? Add to that all the well-meaning friends and family members asking if you have picked a theme for the baby’s room yet!

When it comes to decorating the baby’s room, there’s no need to stress. There are many easy and creative décor ideas to make a warm and welcoming space for the little one! Here are a few simple baby room ideas to create a gorgeous and unique nursery.

1. Set the mood with art

Art prints are a great, easy way to make any space look inviting. Whether you feel like going for a magical unicorn, a cute forest animal or an inspirational quote, there are artworks to suit every theme and style.

2. Get playful with cute bedding

You should not put bedding or cushions in the crib for the first year, but don’t worry – the cot will still look cute with the right fitted sheet! Choose a fun colour or a beautiful floral pattern. While you’re at it, you might want to make the baby’s sleeping space calm and cosy with a canopy to suit your colour theme.

3. Use the wall space

If your nursery space is small, you might worry about fitting everything in. Using the wall space is a great way to create a one-of-a-kind nursery without clogging up the room. How about a personalised wooden sign to welcome the baby, or a cute animal head up on the wall? This owl is perfect for a minimalist room, whereas this peacock brings a playful touch of colour.

4. Swap wallpaper for wall decals

Wall decals are a great alternative to wallpaper if you like to mix it up, or to update the look of the room as your child’s own taste develops. Just pick a shade of paint and decorate over it with your choice of wall decals! From flowers to animals and rainbows, the options are endless.

5. Make mundane items fun

A functional essential such as lighting doesn’t have to be plain. A beaded chandelier that complements your colour palette is a great way to add personality to your baby’s room. A playmat with a fun print is a great way to bring colour and tie the room together.

Have fun with it!

When it comes to decorating your baby’s room, don’t worry about it too much but try to have fun with it instead. At the end of the day, you will also be spending lots of time in the nursery – don’t hesitate to make it a space that you love too! Get browsing and you’re sure to find some pieces you’ll fall in love with. Often one single item can inspire a whole theme for the nursery.
