If you are going to be having a baby, you know that there are a lot of things that you will have to make sure are ready and prepared before the baby even arrives. Some of these tasks are not all that fun, but when it comes to decorating the nursery, you have a chance to get creative and design a space that truly reflects you and your new baby to be. If you are just starting to think about what you would like, consider starting out with a bedding set. By starting with a bedding ensemble, you are instantly creating a theme and color palate for the room. It also gives you an easy way to buy all the things you need at one location. Here are a few tips for adding personality to a baby’s nursery by using coordinated baby bedroom sets.
1. Choose coordinating accessories based on the bedding. When you get a bedding set, you are getting a built in color scheme and theme. You can pull colors from the set to help you pick a paint color for the walls or furniture, extra blankets, or even coordinating clothes that you want to hang in the closet. Most stores also make it easy to buy everything you need all in one place so it matches. If you pick a forest or fairy theme, for example, you will most likely find coordinating lamps, curtains, rugs, and hampers that all match. This creates an instantly decorated nursery with little effort.
2. Expand on the set. Once you pick a bedding set that you like, add a little of your own personality into the room. Use the colors from the set and pick out pictures or create your own wall hangings that match the décor. Popular options are wall decals, a baby’s name spelled out on the wall, and knick knacks and pictures frames to sit on dressers or night side stands.
3. Base the furniture on the bedding set. Another option that many parents don’t consider is to buy the bedding set first and then pick out or alter the furniture to go along with the bedding theme. You may want deep red furniture to match the Mickey Mouse theme or all the Disney baby clothes that you have in the room, for example. If you do it the other way around, you may find yourself stifled with what you can do. It is the easiest to buy the cheaper items first and decide what you want to do, and then make the investment into the furniture.
These are three easy ways to inject a little personality into a baby’s room simply by using already made and purchased baby bedroom sets. Shop around until you find a theme that you like and can relate to, or feel free to mix and match sets to get the exact look you are going for. The baby’s nursery is one place where you can have a little fun and get a little creative, so take advantage of the opportunity!
