Counting down the months or weeks to having a newborn baby? Create a fabulous newborn-friendly interior design with these nursery room decor ideas.
Spoiler - we've shared some tips on nursery decor ideas specifically for small rooms.
Shutters are the perfect window treatment for nursery room windows.
They’re easy to keep clean, have no dangling cords for babies to pull at which pose a hazard, and they’ll regulate light quickly and easily at the touch of a slat. When you put your baby down for a nap, there's no loud draw of curtains or fiddling with blinds, the simple touch of a slat will reduce light entering the room so your baby will sleep soundly.
Shutter blinds in baby rooms provides an extra layer of insulation and noise reduction that can filter through windows, not to mention they are one of the most sought-after, stylish window dressings for the home and are timeless as your baby grows older. Why not use them to add a block of colour in your baby room, too? Match to a shade picked up from wallpaper or a rug, or contrast with plain white walls.
Choose an attention-grabbing design to brighten a nursery and opt for window dressing that doesn't clash against pattern. A set of shutters in a complimentary shade like Silk White, Alabaster or Bisque will ensure the room still feels rested. If the room’s small and all-over pattern’s overpowering, just cover one wall and then use toning paint colours on the other three.
Worried about too many clashing patterns for a baby’s nursery design? How about going for graphic monochrome designs. With this backdrop, it’s easy to add colourful accents with accessories and the look will grow timelessly as your baby grows older.
Make a nursery cheerful with storage that leaves items on display. A raised cube like this one makes things easy to grab and simple to tidy away again at the end of the day.
They aren't long staying babies so make sure you opt for flooring that stands the test of time in your little one's nursery. Choosing a soft and stain-resistant carpet for a new nursery will have tactile appeal and protect your child from bumps that hard floors can challenge. Prefer wipeable hard flooring instead? You can still soften and zone areas with a rug. Bright and bold motif rugs are both cheerful, dry cleanable and easily changed.

Adding wall shelving will provide extra storage without filling up precious floor space in small rooms. Shelving is also ideal for clothing when they’re tiny, so you don't have to worry about getting a large wardrobe.
Another space-saving solution is finding dual-purpose furniture, such as a chest of drawers with a changing mat on top.
When it comes to nursery decor colour schemes, white and wood finishes are popular in other areas of the home and they look great, but how about a painted finish for nursery furniture? This Seagreen shade looks fresh. If you’re not buying new, a coat of paint is a great way to revive secondhand furniture, too.

Invest in nursery furniture that’s adaptable to make your budget go further. This cot converts into a toddler bed when your little one grows older and, when even that stage is past, a cute sofa.
If you like the idea of neutral painted walls so the room can be easily updated as your little one grows, try wall stickers to liven up the decor without long-term commitment. They’re also a lot speedier to put up than wallpaper.
To add interest to a nursery without being tied to a rigid theme, let the colour palette be the link between the elements of the scheme. This blue elephant print, for example, would work beautifully alongside other tones of blue from dark to pale on walls, rug and accessories.
