Your baby has grown up a little, and now it is time to create a comfortable and safe accommodation for living for your child, because they are going to spend a lot of time in their own room. Today we won't focus on some drain or plumbing related issues of the house but instead we will talk about the interior design.

The interior of the nursery affects not only the physical and intellectual development of your child, but it also creates good conditions for the child's mental comfort, helps to form certain character traits, tastes and preferences, and creates an emotional background of his life.

How to decorate the walls in the nursery room?

In the nursery room, you can either paint the walls or hang some wallpapers. It is advisable to select a washable wallpaper for a child, since there is no such child who has not tried to paint the walls of their room. It is better to choose a wallpaper that has some monochromatic pattern. Today, the wallpaper with cartoon characters and bright spots are in high demand; however, you should keep in mind that they exert an excessive load on the child's psyche, dispel their attention, and can quickly bore a kid.

Lightning in the nursery

The best light for any room is natural light, therefore, it is best to make the nursery room the brightest one in the house. Preferably, you should install some large vinyl windows facing south. As for artificial light, it should be bright enough so that the child's eyesight does not spoil. The fluorescent lamps are closest to daylight in the spectrum; they do not spoil the eyesight and create soft, diffused lighting. Another key element of a nursery room is a night light. Luckily, today, many stores offer funny and inexpensive nightlights in the shape of animals and toys with adjustable intensity of lighting. Such a night lamp will create a cozy atmosphere in the room and help the baby sleep peacefully.

How to store toys?

In any children's room, there are usually a lot of toys and very often it is a problem to find a place where you could store them. Keep in mind that your child should learn how to keep order on his own and all you have to do is make it as easy as possible. It is best purchase toy boxes that have wheels, as they are easier to move around. You could tape to such boxes an image of what should be stored in them. Thus, the baby will learn how to sort objects.

In addition, you can hang bags made of fabric to store puzzles in them or some other toys. As for books, playdough, pencils and pens, you should store them separately from toys on some kind of dedicated shelf. It is a good idea to hang such a shelf on the wall near the children's table.
