Let them choose the topic they like, the colors and the decorative objects. Before you start decorating your nursery check out this guide with ideas and tips that will help you get inspired.
Pick a theme
What are your child’s interests? Start with his favorite books and what they choose to paint. Know who it is that your son or daughter likes to pretend to be when their playing. Use this information as an inspiration for choosing the theme decoration of their room. If your daughter loves nature, the birds and trees, butterflies or hearts, animals, flowers or letters, pick a theme that contains some of what she loves. If your boy seem to love cars, maps, music or the sea, use this information to help you choose the decorating theme of his room as well.
Always remember that safety is an important factor in decorating any kids room. If your kids do restless sleep, the bunk beds are not the best choice. Never use decorations that could cause choking or injury to your child. Choosing a right theme for your child’s room, will direct you to select the colors, the designs of fabrics or decorative elements.
Continue by selecting the colors you are going to paint the walls and ceiling, the materials and frames. Choose an original fabric and pattern that will help you in your quest. Choose fabrics and wallpapers that will help to enhance the theme and colors that you choose. You should choose a basic pattern for example curtains, and fill with cushions in the same pattern or colors contained in the pattern. Select accessories, textiles, paintings on the walls and other decorative, coordinated with the initial basic fabric and colors.
Choosing auxiliary colors for decorations, can help you equalize and support further your theme. It is preferable to choose a single common color on the walls when it comes to use different fabric patterns in a room. You can also choose the same design patterns on a wallpaper but on a smaller scale for fabrics or curtains for example. Build easy and with low cost frames for the walls, using simple drawings of your children or their pictures, cards or cutting images from books or magazines.
