General rules

To begin work, it is necessary to take into account several important factors for arranging a cozy and beautiful nursery.

  • Age. Childhood lasts more than one year. Over time, preferences and interests change. The decor should match the age of the child and his current addictions. By the way, it is recommended to change the decor at least once every two years.
  • Personal preferences. Maybe up to a year the baby will agree with your choice, since it does not make much difference in which cradle to lie, if only it would be convenient. But at the age of 1-2 years, he is quite capable of choosing his favorite jewelry, color, cartoon characters and other addictions. Of course, at this age there are still no clearly formed views, but the child is able to describe personal preferences. Do not ignore this factor, and be sure to talk with the baby before making decisions regarding further actions.
  • Materials Only select hypoallergenic materials that do not cause adverse health effects. In addition, all the components of the decor must be of high quality.
  • Dimensions Remember that bulky and too bright decorations will not work for a small room. Choose the scenery so that they look harmonious and do not overload the space.
  • Comfort. For the sake of this factor, sometimes you have to sacrifice beauty. Do not forget that the situation in the first place should be comfortable for both parents and their children.
