Why You Need To Decorate Your Nursery
Parents who are strapped for cash often wonder if they actually have to decorate their child's new nursery. (“Does my baby REALLY need wall decoration?”) Sometimes, they will simply keep a nursery as bare-bones as possible in order to save some money for other purposes. Although this is a very valiant attempt at saving money, the fact is that the investment in a well-decorated nursery often pays for itself within the first couple of months of parenthood. Here are some of the many, many reasons why parents should make an effort to decorate their baby's nursery.
Colors have been proven to have a positive effect on babies. This means that decorating your room in hues of blue, pink, or even yellow can help your child emotionally. Lavender hues have been noted to help babies go to sleep. Blue hues have a similar calming effect while greens have been shown to help a baby's intellectual faculties. Pinks have been known to produce a calming effect as well as also aid in keeping a peaceful (read: non-confrontational) environment in a room. Reading about color theme, or the psychology of colors, will provide a lot of useful and surprising information for parents who want to learn about the hues that they surround their child with.
Part of decorating is organizing everything. Well-organized rooms have been linked with a lower level of stress for people of all ages. This means that a very overworked new mom will have a little bit less stress on her shoulders.
The beauty about a well-decorated nursery is that a lot of the decorations that are available for purchase also have uses that moms will need. It's not only décor that you are investing in; it's functionality as well.
Guests will be very unnerved if they see a nursery that is too clinical in appearance. Making your nursery beautiful is part of making it inviting for everyone. Your guests will love seeing a decorated nursery just as much as your baby will.
One of the biggest myths that parents believe is that decorating a nursery will only “be useful for 2 or 3 years.” A well-decorated nursery will have many elements that can be used into your child's school years. Your nursery's room color, blankets, hampers, and storage sets can be used for decades. Be a smart buyer, and think of your baby's nursery as a long time investment with a lot of returns to offer.
