Decorating a room for newborn baby can be hard because there are so many things that you have to keep in mind. For example, you have to guarantee that the baby is comfortable with the room and the colors must complement his/her gender. You should also consider the materials that you are going to use. The decorations should be made of materials that will not pose hazard to the baby’s sensitive body.
For more information, here is a quick run of the primary things that you should consider when decorating the room of a newborn baby:
When decorating, the first thing that you should consider is the baby’s gender. For example, if your baby is a boy, a more neutral theme should be used like stars, sun, moon, animals, colorful characters from Disney like Mickey Mouse and others. But if your baby is a girl, obviously, you should get her flowers, fairies, princesses, angels and other similar themes.
When choosing a color, pick something that is neutral to the eyes. Avoid very dark or bleak colors but keep away from super bright colors like pure yellow. Choose something soothing like green or baby blue. But as soon as your baby starts developing his or her sense of sight the first thing that he/she appreciates is the color red, so you might want to put highlight some areas of the room with that color.
As much as possible, use carpet, wood or tiles as flooring. Aside from the fact that these are very easy to clean and maintain, these are less likely to irritate the baby. Avoid strong chemical-based paints as well, especially the ones that emit a strong odor to prevent the baby from developing skin allergies or respiratory problems.
4. Hanging Decors
Keep in mind that the baby will be lying on his/her back most of the time. Once he/she starts developing his/her sense of sight, he/she will be looking at the ceiling most of the time. So, it is a good idea to put in dangling baby toys on top of the crib. However, make sure that the items are fixed properly to prevent them from falling into the baby.
