Decorating your baby’s nursery is one of the most exciting times for you as a parent. With winter around the corner, use our winter nursery décor ideas to add warmth to the space.
Top 4 Winter Nursery Décor Ideas for Your Little One
Make your nursery a winter wonderland for your baby with these tips:
1. Use a Cool Colour Palette
If you are going for a gender-neutral look for your winter nursery, choose a cool colour palette such as whites, creams, and greys for the theme. For example, replace the bedding with soft options in greys and light blues and choose furniture with clean lines. Similarly, choose a dove grey cot or a simple one that doesn’t have frills or adornments.
2. Choose Warm Baby Bedding
Your baby will need warmer bedding during winter. In keeping with the winter theme, choose blankets and fitted sheets in neutral tones. You can also get baby sleeping bags that will swaddle your little one securely as he tosses and turns.
A cot can feel intimidating for tiny babies. While the space allows them to move around, they can easily kick off their blanket as they explore, which can prove dangerous when the temperature drops. So choose layers that will keep them snug as they move around. This includes vests or sleeping sacks with enclosed bottoms and open tops.
3. Add Soothing Lighting Options
Transform the nursery into a warm and welcoming environment to get through those cold, dark nights by adding soothing lighting options. Add a lamp, a night light that emits a soft glow, or side lighting options that create a cosy ambience. Also, consider textured rugs and heavy curtains that can block out sunlight and provide extra insulation.
Your aim should be to provide a comforting environment during feeding and bedtime. A nightlight will keep your little one calm in the middle of the night.
4. Maintain the Right Temperature
This isn’t a décor idea but a reminder not to ignore the nursery’s temperature while decorating it. You want it to be warm, not hot. The best temperature for this room is between 16° and 25°C.
The aforementioned bedding options can also help you maintain a comfortable temperature. Install a thermometer on the wall to be safe. Remember your comfort too. Place an extra blanket on the nursing chair in the nursery and a soft rug that can keep your feet warm. A soft, warm, and neutral rug can bring the winter décor together.
Whether you hire an interior decorator or ask someone else to help you with the décor, remember it’s YOUR baby’s nursery. Consider ideas you find appealing and comforting, not someone who has a different outlook than yours. You will spend a lot of your time in that space, so choose elements that bring you joy and comfort and warm you from the inside out.
