Decorating your baby's nursery doesn't have to cost a fortune. With a touch of creativity, you can create a wonderful space in your loft for your little one. Get started with these 10 practical and budget-friendly ideas:
1. Get creative with wallpaper: Wallpaper is a great and simple way to add a style to a nursery quickly. Opt for a classic and modern pattern over one that’s baby-oriented and achieve a look that will last for years.
2. Story book prints: A selection of your favourite children’s books can easily be transformed into wall art when displayed in frames. The display will add some charm to the space, and the frames don't have to be expensive. A row of framed book covers or even pages from books can also be interactive for a child as he or she learns to read.
3. Pick an interactive theme: We’ve come across some really special themes. Our favourite would have to be the Harry Potter nursery, but there are other pop culture-inspired themes you can implement in your nursery.
9. Choose adaptable furniture: Rather than choosing furniture specifically with babies in mind, opt for furniture that will be useful in the long term. As any parent will tell you, babies grow at an alarming rate, so purchasing a larger cot that will accommodate your little one up until they are ready to sleep in a bed, for example, will save you precious pounds.
