When you need to decorate a nursery for a newborn son, it can be a joyous experience, but it can also be a very daunting one. There are so many important matters to take into account even before you actually get started that it can be very helpful to make a list and then check the items off one by one as they are taken care of.
Since baby’s safety is of paramount importance, you will first want to learn all you possibly can about the recommended safe bedding practices related to cribs and bed linens. Then you will want to make a note to look for fabrics that are comfortable for baby’s tender skin as well as easy to launder. Next, to make shopping more manageable, you will want to choose a specific motif, such as airplane baby bedding.
To carry out this theme, for instance, you can consider using one of the interesting vintage airplane patterns or select one of the whimsical modern prints that are available in a variety of different colors and styles of baby boy bedding. You can also decide to paint or paper the bedroom ceiling to represent a beautiful blue sky, either with a bright sun or with a moon and a whole bunch of stars.
A dangling mobile of tiny planes is another touch that will fascinate a curious infant, and articles like matching wall hangings and window treatments will complete the picture beautifully. You can even find a coordinated area rug and a matching lamp shade if you wish to give the space a professionally decorated feel.
If, like so many parents these days, you have to be concerned with decorating in an economical fashion, your best best will be to concentrate on those items which come in complete sets of crib bedding. They eliminate the need for multiple decisions, and they are invariably less expensive than purchases made one at a time. The only individual bedding items you will need at that point are some extra sheets, to allow you to change them for laundering purposes. A packaged set cuts shopping time significantly, and allows you to decorate all at once just as soon as it arrives at your home.
Your checklist will then be complete, and these simple steps should have made the process a relative breeze. Now you and your little aviator can both gaze off into “the wide blue yonder” as he gets ready to drift peacefully off into a cloudless sleep.
To implement this particular motif, one can pick a colorful design that features old fighter planes or one that has fanciful, storybook-type images, both of which work well for baby boy bedding. The airplane bedding can be used in a nursery full of blue sky or one with the moon and stars all over the walls.
Your new baby will be entranced by a mobile of little airplanes, and you can carry the theme throughout the bedroom with related wall decorations and window treatments. There are many accessory pieces to choose from to complete the decorating of the nursery. Don’t overlook the small touches like coordinating lamps shades and area rugs that pull the finished look together.
If you are looking for a less expensive way to decorate your baby’s room, you should look into purchasing an all-in-one set of crib bedding. They do away with the necessity for repeated decision making, and they are consistently cheaper than when you buy items separately. You won’t need much in the way of separate linens, except maybe for extra sheets you can use while you’re washing the others. A matching ensemble reduces the time you need for decorating quite a bit because it lets you accomplish everything at one time as soon as the package gets to your door.
