A safe and lovely room, filled with the parents' affection, is what your baby requires. Here, we will tell you what you need to keep in mind, while setting up a baby nursery.

Baby Nursery Décor Ideas
When you are setting a baby nursery, the wallpaper is the most important thing to keep in mind. It can be in any soothing color. You can either stick to the clichéd “blue for boys and pink for girls” theme or go for any subtle colors. Lemon yellow, blue green, cream, white and peach etc are some of the colors you can choose for your baby’s nursery.
Crib is the place where your baby will spend most of his time. So, choose a crib that is safe and comfortable. The mattress should be firm and fit the crib. The crib should not be near open windows or electricity outlets. The night light should not be directly above it. You can match the crib color to the theme of the room. Plus, remember to focus the room around the crib. If you want, you can even opt for a cozy bassinet for your baby.
Consider putting the changing table with a pad cover and fasten the security belt for your baby’s safety. You can stock all your baby stuff over it, like the diapers, clothes, powders and creams.
Toy Chest & Toys
You would like to fill your baby's room with toys, big and small, won’t you? However, if you have just brought your baby from hospital and he is only few days old, then keep it simple. Few toys, which are safe and colorful, would be enough for the baby. You can set a toy chest in room for future use. However, it should be baby proofed.
It may be one of the most important things for a baby nursery. Install a night lamp in the nursery, as you may have to feed the baby in night. Keep the light dim and soft. You can also place a glider chair in the nursery.
Keep It Near
Make the nursery in a room that is near your own bedroom, so that you can be there when your baby needs you. You can also have place a connecting the door of your bedroom, to the nursery. Place pictures of animals and flowers on the walls. However, the picture should be calm enough, so your baby doesn’t get scared. Don’t place paintings, mantles, etc in the nursery.
Keep It Simple
You may want to create a 'Neverland' for your baby, but it is better to keep it simple when your baby is small. Remember less is more. Use soft and subtle colors for the floor too. The floor should not be hard and the nursery should be safe enough for the baby to wander around. The room should be airy, but warm.
