Finishing your perfect nursery with roller blinds

The perfect nursery is about more than just being stylish, it is where your baby will be spending a large amount of their time, as a result the room needs to be pleasing to the eye but also highly functional.  In order to stop the task from becoming over whelming it’s crucial that you break it down into smaller tasks.  Here are some top tips to help you along the way.

Be original with your theme

It’s easy to just go to the shop, pick your favourite theme or children’s character and just buy all the accessories associated with this, but the results can often end up seeming pretty generic.  Instead why not try just picking one special item to be the rooms centre piece and then decorate the rest of the room to fit around this.  You could choose a really beautiful rug and then paint the whole room to match its colour scheme.  Once you have the centre piece everything else will fall into place.

Combine old and new styles

It’s not essential to stay either traditional or modern when designing your nursery, combining the two styles can actually create something quite exciting and allow your imagination to flow more freely.  Traditional furniture combined with modern accents actually fit really well together.

Make it your own

A nursery is about your baby, so be sure you fill it with personal things that make it stand out as yours.  If your Mum is busy knitting your baby a homemade blanket, use that one in the crib.  If you have some great pictures you took at the zoo display these ones rather than buying animal pictures.  The result might look a bit miss matched but it’s important to make this room your babies own rather than try and create a show room perfect design.

Ensure you have a practical finish

It is often easy to forget the importance of practicality when decorating a room.  With nurseries in particular though practicality is essential, you need enough storage space to make keeping your babies stuff tidy, you need to have enough space to perform all the practical tasks such as nappy changing and dressing.  Perhaps most importantly you need to be able to make the room dark during the day to encourage napping.  A great way to do this is with a set of simple roller blinds which can black out a room.

Think about size

Find furniture that make the most of the space you have, you want the nursery to feel cosy and comfortable, a nursery will grow into your child’s own personal space and you want them to be happy there.
