Planning and decorating your baby's nursery ahead of time is an especially exiting experience for expectant parents. Of course, knowing ahead of time that you are having a baby boy helps you make planning decisions for decorating your son’s nursery. When planning your baby boy's nursery, keep these tips in mind:
Start by choosing a theme for the room, decorate the walls with paint designs or wallpaper, and furnish the new nursery with everything you need for your baby boy. All of these decorating ideas can be accomplished without spending a lot of money, and before you bring your baby home from the hospital. Some possible themes for a baby boy’s room include nursery rhymes, vehicles, sports, animals, or even a jungle. You can paint or wall paper your nursery according to the theme you choose.
For a vehicles theme you may paint your nursery light blue and find a wall boarder with trucks, planes, boats and cars. Then you can get curtains that match the wall boarder, and a crib set of sheets, blankets, and a bumper pad that matches the curtains. Furnish the room with a crib, dresser and changing table, but also hang soft plush planes and trucks on the walls to bring out the theme even more. Make sure you get a lamp and mobile that follows your vehicle theme as well.
For a jungle theme you may want to paint the room green, hang jungle themed wallpaper, or even paint a mural. Painted murals are a beautiful decorative addition to any nursery. Then purchase curtains, bedding, lamps, a mobile, rocking chair, and other accessories to accent this theme. For a jungle theme you can even paint he ceiling as a blue sky with billowy clouds, or cover it with large green plush treetops like the canopy of the South American Rainforests.
You can accomplish all of this with a creative mind and some help from friends. To make these decorating ideas less expensive you can go to thrift stores for items, borrow from friends, or register for items you can get as gifts at your baby shower. Remember that if you choose to paint or hang wallpaper, you need to have someone do these tasks for you as it is not recommended for pregnant women to breathe paint and glue fumes.
