One of the first things to decide on will be what type of wall treatment to use, will it be straight painting, hanging wallpaper or possibly a combination of both.
If painting is your choice do you prefer colors that are bright and colorful or are you leaning more toward subtle and neutral?
Even though young children love bright colors something in a calm, cool color might be a better choice for a baby’s room.
In fact, many parents tend to adopt a more neutral pallet that will work well for both boys and girls. This also gives you the flexibility to make easy decorating changes are your baby grow.
Wallpapering is a great way to add lots of baby personality to a room. You’re going to discover an endless supply of soft colors, bold patterns like stripes or checks and cute prints to fit any decorating scheme.
To keep the room from becoming too busy and future redecorating made easier you may want to consider using wallpaper on just one main wall or using a solid color, especially if the bedding set you’ve chosen has a lot of color and pattern within it.
Because of the number of items a baby requires a chest of drawers, dresser or armoire is a necessity in their room, and you can never have too much storage.
The size of the room will determine how many pieces if only one piece can be used you may want to consider one chest of drawers with a full top which can double as a changing table. Extra storage can be found by placing a shelf or two above the dresser.
Bookcases are another piece of furniture that can be useful for storage. Fabric lined wicker baskets in different sizes can be placed on the shelves for holding extra crib linens, clothes, diapers, etc.
Later these baskets will come in handy for toys, books or clothes. If you're going to use a bookcase for this purpose, once your baby begins to crawl or walk you will want to secure the piece to the wall for safety.
To make things even easier for you there are many Nursery Sets available which can include the crib, dresser, armoire and changing table hutch combo. Get creative and have fun decorating a magical room for the extraordinary little person about to enter your life.
