What should I keep in mind when decorating a new nursery?

It is my first child.

Keeping the colors gender neutral will not only be less overwhelming over time, but will suit your needs as your family grows. If your nursery will also serve as a playroom, be sure to have all outlets guarded and to limit the number of sharp corners at toddler level.

When decorating a nursery, you should try to look for items that will serve the child for years to come. A good quality dresser that doubles as a changing table and a bed that converts from a crib, to a toddler bed, to a double bed will be useful until your child heads off for college.

Make sure to use materials safe for baby. Do not fill the baby's bed with excessive covers and please do not use pillows in the bed.

Babies love color and things to look at. Make sure the space is cute yet functional. If you plan on having another child soon after it may be easier for you to paint the walls a neutral color.

Make sure to use neutral colors if unsure if it is going to be a boy or girl. Also, a rocking chair should be incorporated into the room. You will be glad it is there during those late night feedings.

One of the most important things to remember when decorating a nursery is that your baby will not stay a baby for long. Unless you want to redecorate again in just a couple years choose a theme that will grow through early childhood with your child.

Use good bright colors and objects that attract the child's attention. Mobiles over cribs are always nice. You want to use anything stimulating.

To keep the colors soft and calming. You may also want to put in a rocking chair so that you can rock baby to sleep. You may also want to have a few teddy bears or other stuffed animals in it.
