The arrival of a baby is a new adventure. Life changes and, consequently, the house too. At least one of the rooms will be exclusively for your child, so it will be necessary to change the decor in every way. Are you sure what you need to upgrade for the little one to have a complete and beautiful bedroom? We have a list of important tips to follow, so your child's bedroom becomes his favorite place in the world.
From the moment the baby arrives home, the room must be well prepared: crib, changing table, a chair or rocking chair to breastfeed. They are some of the essentials you need and that you can review in this article. But what about the rest of the decor in the room? Creating a calm, warm, and welcoming environment is one of the goals of all parents, and we are going to give you some clues to get the perfect room for the little one.
Delimit different areas
Diapers, toys, clothes, bathroom utensils, and personal care. These are just some of the things you will have to find a place in the room, that's why all kinds of shelves, cabinets, or drawers will be welcome. One way to have everything organized is to delimit the place by zones. Everything will depend on the square meters you have, but nothing is impossible if you know how to organize yourself. The ideal is to have a rest area, a care area, and a lactation area. To separate spaces, the rugs can become your best allies since they will delimit the area you want to mark.
The colors that best fit
The color you choose to paint your room will also be a crucial decision. For this type of place, you usually go for the pink or blue colors (depending on whether you are a boy or a girl), but why don't you go for the neutral or pastel colors? White, candy yellow, mint color, violet, taupe, or any soft shade from the earth color range can also be perfect for your room walls.
You can opt for wallpapers that provide a different touch and can be ideal with children's motifs. Choosing a single wall to place it will be enough.
The good idea is to choose the white color for the furniture; you can reuse them to change the decoration of your room as it grows to adapt to your new needs.
From 24 months
As he grows, his customs will also change. Each little one is a world, so it will always depend on each child, the age at which we can buy him his first bed, and therefore, he begins to sleep alone in her room. The support lights or wall lamps will help you because they will be your salvation in possible episodes of fear, when they start going to the bathroom alone at night or before they fall asleep while you're reading a story to them.
From approximately two years of age, you can rearrange his room by defining new spaces. From now on, we can add a play area and join it to the rest area, where you will place his new bed and the relaxation, study, or organization area where he could paint, do his homework, read stories or store all his favorite toys.
To give your room a comfortable and straightforward air, you can add fun, tasty textiles with different patterns such as stars, animals. Blankets and covers to cover your bed, cushions of different shapes and textures, or rugs are some of the ideal accessories for children's rooms.
Boxes or bags to store toys or clothes can also help you tidy up your room and, at the same time, give it a different touch. Ready to set up your little world?
