Getting ready to decorate the nursery for your anticipated little bundle is super exciting. You cannot wait to choose wall paint, bedding, and decorations. You may have a thousand ideas running through your mind, thanks to Pinterest, and you cannot narrow it down to one.
So how do you choose? While there is no definitive answer to this, here are a few questions to ask yourself that may help make your decision a little bit easier.
Is It Timeless?
We have all bought into the latest craze at some point: reciting the words, singing the songs, buying the merchandise. Then, the phase is over. You can run into the same issue with your nursery theme. Sure, a Moana or Frozen theme would be really cute and fun for a baby girl, but once the popularity dies down, you may be left wondering why you did it. Opt for something that has stood the test of time, especially if you are looking at a “branded” theme.
Is It Age-Inclusive?
Kids grow up. As much as we may not want them to, it is a sad fact that cannot be stopped. They all go through their phases: they outgrow their furniture, their toys, their hobbies. If you are planning to keep your child in the same room, transitioning from nursery to child’s room, you may want to keep it simple so you do not need to make a bunch of changes when the time comes.
Is It Gender-Neutral?
Some people who are planning on having multiple children have a designated room in their house for a nursery. If this is you, keeping it gender neutral will save you a lot of time and money in the future, unless picking a new nursery theme for every child is something you are looking forward to.
