Nusery Room Decoration /2012/03/nusery-room-decoration/ /2012/03/nusery-room-decoration/#comments Thu, 01 Mar 2012 11:34:03 +0000 admin /?p=137 nursery roomPreparing for a new baby usually means planning a nursery. While the furnishings in the room will contribute to the room’s function as a place for the baby to sleep, play, and be cared for, decorative aspects of the room should not be neglected, especially those on the walls.

Adding Color to a Room
Decorations on the wall of a nursery do more than just make the room appear brighter and more finished. Even against white walls, wall stickers add a splash of color to the room. Coloring a plain room makes it feel cozier and more relaxing to the child who will have to sleep there.

Decorating the Walls Without Painting
All parents do not have the luxury of time or home ownership to be able to paint the walls of the nursery any color they want. Wall stickers for the nursery are another option. Brightly colored nursery decals, such as those available online, can be applied to the walls instead of painting. Nursery stickers have the benefit of easy removal later as the child grows or if the family moves. The wide variety of such decorations for the walls make selecting wall decals to match the rest of the nursery’s decorating theme easier.

Baby’s Development
Nursery wall decals like the ones found on many websites provide a focal point for the baby’s developing eyes, helping the child learn to focus on an object. As the child grows, the colors used on such wall appliques can help a baby to learn to identify different colors. This will later prove beneficial in his preschool learning.

Rather than taking the trouble to repaint or wallpaper a nursery, many parents are opting to add decorative stickers to the walls. These are easier to apply than wallpaper, can be removed, unlike paint, and add baby-friendly decorations to the walls to make the room more comfortable. There seems little reason to not choose wall stickers as a decorating option for the nursery.

How To Buy Children’s Bedroom Furniture /2012/02/how-to-buy-childrens-bedroom-furniture/ /2012/02/how-to-buy-childrens-bedroom-furniture/#comments Wed, 01 Feb 2012 12:19:26 +0000 admin /?p=133 childrens bedroom furnitureWhen buying childrens furniture, look for pieces that are sturdy, safe and functional. While keeping those features in mind, coordinate new pieces with existing bedroom furniture. For practicality, it’s also a good idea to choose furniture that will grow with the child. This means choosing age appropriate furniture, which offers the ability to be used for more than one or two years.

Wood is a good choice for night tables and dressers, although corners should be rounded with no sharp edges, especially for toddlers’ rooms. Childrens beds come in various character designs, as well as bunk bed styles for two children to share. Little boys seem to love the race car beds, while girls often go for the fairytale styles. Most young girls love canopy style beds, and this design can make a child feel like a princess. Be certain the bed platform has locking mechanism for safety, and the canopy is well constructed.

A child’s armoire or wardrobe is equally important, as this furniture can be stylish and attractive as well as functional. For a room with plenty of closet space, an armoire may not be necessary, although a chest of drawers or bureau is very practical.

Another essential piece of furniture for a child’s room is a toy box. It’s common to find children’s toy boxes in many styles and colors. Some toy boxes are designed to be used as seating, with a hinged lid that opens for storage. Be sure to buy a toy box that is sturdy and safe for the age of the child it is intended for.

Bookcases and desks are very functional pieces of furniture for most kids’ rooms. School-aged children should have a desk in the bedroom that can accommodate their school projects and homework. Older children might benefit from a computer desk with hutch, to store a computer or laptop. Colorful revolving bookcases are great for toddlers and pre-school aged children.

They are available in a surprising array of styles, each with its own benefits and unique design. Babies are notoriously in love with them and many mothers have found a snuggle in a baby carrier can lend to several hours of quiet peaceful bliss.

Some people believe anything that requires wrapping to be a sling, so when shopping for a sling keep that in mind to ensure acquisition of the sort of sling desired.

They also allow the ability to carry much older children, while for some of the other carrier types, after one year old, it can be more of a challenge. Types of back harness carriers are the Asian carrier backpack and general back harness.

There are also options of usage design. Some carrier manufactures make light weight more breathable models for summer, extended use models, models that allow the baby to sit facing forward or toward the mother and even carriers that function as both front and back harnesses or other combinations. When putting a child in a baby carrier it is best to research well and make a choice based on safety and comfort for both mother and baby. After all, it will be carrying the most precious of cargo.
