When deciding how to design your baby’s room there are steps you can take to make sure that the whole process goes smoothly. Here are some steps to take to create a baby room design plan to help keep you organized during the planning and decorating process:
What you are able to spend will influence key decisions in the design and planning process of the nursery so it really should be the first thing you do. Sit down and crunch the numbers and then decide how much of the budget will go to the various things you need for the baby room’s design. For example, say you have $1000 to spend. You might want to allow $200 for bedding and matching accessories (crib mobile, window treatments, etc.), $500 for the baby room furniture and mattress, $100 for artwork and paint, wallpaper, or murals, and $200 for miscellaneous items such as rugs, diaper pails, a baby monitor, storage and organization items, etc.
If you want to go with a theme for your baby’s room, now is the time to choose it. If you don’t want a theme, decide what kind of look and feel you want the room to have. Something classic? Chic? Simple? Elegant?
Now comes the fun part, shopping! You will probably want to begin by purchasing the nursery bedding first. Then you can choose furniture in a finish that best compliments the bedding you chose. Remember to keep your budget in mind. If you spend more than you allowed for an item on your list, you will have to shave the money off your budget somewhere else.
