15 Cute Decorations For Baby's Room

by Sandstone Avenue on February 15, 2022

Getting your nursery ready for a new baby can be super fun! However, there are so many elements to organize and decorate a room for your newest family member. Here are some cute ideas to help you create the nursery of your dreams!

 

1. Give them a sign

"You are my sunshine" wooden nursery sign

There is nothing cuter than a wooden sign to accent baby’s wall. Whether it’s something with a cute saying or a sign that will proudly display your baby’s name, you can find so many cute options!

 

2. Minky Blankets

Minky blankets are amazing because they have multiple uses. They can be used as a decoration on your rocking chair, used as a stroller blanket, and your baby can use the Minky blanket in bed (once they get a bit older). Minkys are so soft, warm, and gorgeous! You might even find yourself stealing it to use for yourself!

 

3. Patterned Sheets

Since you can’t include pillows, stuffed animals, or blankets in a baby's crib, for their safety, patterned sheets are the way to decorate cribs. A cute patterned sheet can give your crib a facelift and tie it together with the color scheme of the room.

 

4. Artwork

Some cute prints, a painting, or pictures of the family can be great ways to decorate your bare nursery walls! 

5. Nightlight

With a new baby, you’ll be up in the middle of the night a lot. So, consider installing some kind of night light (preferably motion and darkness activated) in your baby’s room. It’ll look cute and you’ll be able to do late-night feeding/changing sessions without turning on all the lights.

 

6. A keepsake shadow box

Do you have a cute coming home outfit that you’d like to keep somewhere special, but you just don’t know where? What about a keepsake bodysuit with your baby’s stats on it? One cute way to display keepsakes is a shadow box, on your baby’s wall. You could include an outfit, maybe their footprints/handprints, and hospital bracelets. It’s a beautiful way to preserve a memory that you can look at every day in your baby's nursery.

 

7. Decorative pillows

While you can’t put these in the crib, decorative pillows can be so cute on your rocking chair. They can add a pop of color and they can even make sitting in the chair more comfortable. Once your baby gets older and moves to a toddler bed, you can use the decorative pillows on your toddler’s bed to tie the room together. They’re a great transitional piece as your child gets older.

 

8. An accent wall

You have a lot of options when it comes to accent walls. You can have someone (not you because paint fumes are not good for babies in utero) paint one of the walls in the nursery a certain color or pattern to create an accent wall. You can also buy other options like vinyl pictures and designs for the wall or removable wallpaper. Removable wallpaper and vinyl can be good options since they don’t involve paint fumes and are less permanent.

 

9. Mobile

Baby mobiles are so cute and can be hung over your baby’s crib. They come in a variety of themes and colors. You can also get mobiles that  move in the wind or ones that wind up and play music. They’re a great way to help babies calm down and it gives them something to watch when you need a minute to yourself. It can also help you tie the crib into your nursery theme.

 

10. Accent rug

Accent rugs are a great way to make your nursery pop from ceiling to floor. Sometimes the flooring might not be a perfect match for your color scheme, but replacing the flooring is just too expensive. A great accent rug can be a cheaper alternative to ripping out all of your flooring. Rugs come in so many shapes, sizes, and colors that you’re sure to find something that will match your nursery perfectly.

 

11. A cute lamp

Lamps are a great way to help brighten up a room. Even if you have natural light during the day, lamps can be a great help in the evening. Sometimes the overhead lights in bedrooms can be really harsh and bright. A lamp is a great way to soften the light and make it more relaxing for you and baby. You can also buy lamps in colors to match your color schemes, and you can even find lamp bases in cute shapes to match your theme.

 

12. Curtains

Curtains are a great way to add some color around your windows and make your nursery look a touch fancier. You can also get blackout curtains which can be great for sleep. Blackout curtains allow you to completely darken a room even if it’s a bright sunny day. This can help your baby sleep longer and have better naps, if they aren’t being woken up by the afternoon sun.

13. Decorative baskets

While you’re decorating your nursery, consider getting one or two soft decorative baskets. These baskets are a great way to store things like blankets and toys in an aesthetically pleasing manner. It’s a great way to organize items while hiding them in plain sight!

14. An accent table

Need a place to put things while you’re feeding your baby in the rocking chair? Get an accent table! Make sure the accent table isn’t too heavy and doesn’t have sharp edges. You don’t want your baby to pull the table over on themselves. So, consider bolting the accent table to the wall.

 

15. A bookshelf

Reading books to your baby is one of the best things you can do for their growth and development. So, get them a cute place to keep all of their books. Bookshelves come in many sizes and colors that can be used to accent a baby's room while providing a place for their books. Make sure the shelf is bolted to the wall, and that the books are easily accessible to your baby. You want them to have easy access to the books so they can look at them by themselves as they get older.


No matter what you end up putting in your nursery, just make sure it’s safe for you and baby. While a cute nursery is so fun to put together, safety should be your first priority.
