6 Steps to Make Your Nursery Look Like a Pinterest Photo

Making a children’s room into a cozy space is not an easy task — you have to take into account not only your own taste, but also the wishes of the little one who sleeps in the room. But don’t worry, we know several ways to make a nursery beautiful quickly and without too much effort. They’ll help you try out different options without breaking the bank, and adjust the room to the changing preferences of a growing child.

Here at Bright Side, we’ve identified 6 key steps in transforming the look of a room with minimal effort. We also collected convenient and stylish items from Amazon that will help you take on this task!

1. Set up storage spaces to make it easier for the child to use toys and things and put them back in their place.

Visual noise can ruin even the most stylish interior. To solve this problem, identify the fastest spreading chaos in the room and try to tame it. Organize toy storage so that it’s easy, convenient, and quick for children to have access to them and return them to their place.

On the other hand, store things that are out of your control (such as paints, modeling dough, or plasticine) in inaccessible places to give out at your discretion.

These boxes are one-size-fits-most racks and shelves. Use the cute designs on the boxes as identifiers to sort through different categories of toys with your child. You can choose between gray or beige backgrounds, which will fit perfectly into any interior.

2. Use textiles to make the space cozy and add color accents.

Now that the room has been decluttered, it’s time to fill it. Using textiles is an easy way to change the look of a space without spending a lot of money. Curtains, rugs, pillows, and tents can easily make a room cozier.

And textile details can also be functional. Use them to zone the space and divide the room into comfortable areas for games, reading, and relaxation. Arrange color accents and change them as you like to fit your mood!

Place colored pillows on the reading couch or directly on the floor to use for play. More than just decoration, they’ll also work as comfortable and light seats. But we’re sure the kiddos will probably use them for pillow fights! At least you’ll get some free time while they’re at it.

3. Choose toys that are also decorative.

If the toys scattered around your living room look cute and cozy and don’t make you seethe with indignation, then they have a place in your home!

Choose items made from natural materials and discreet colors. Buy what the child likes and, at the same time, pleases the eye. This way, the toys themselves will become a decoration for the nursery. Little by little, you can influence your child’s taste and make your home genuinely aesthetic.

This may sound unexpected, but we have several reasons for this advice. First, keeping a room tidy is easier if there are fewer toys. Second, research confirms that it will positively affect your child’s development!

You can remove some of the toys that your child is already bored with, and then, after a few months, bring them back out and hide the boring ones again. You’ll need less cleaning, and your kid will be happy with the “new” well-forgotten toys.
