1. Paint

Painting the walls is the easiest (and cheapest) way to transform a regular room into a nursery! Of course most people think blue when they’re designing a boy’s room, but this isn’t mandatory. It’s actually best to go with neutral colors that are tranquil, like soft grays, creamy yellows, and light blues.

2. Find Your Furniture


Once the paint has dried, it’s time to get shopping! The furniture you choose will be the base for the decor for the rest of the room, so make sure you choose something neutral (if that’s what you like). Here are some of the most important pieces of furniture:

– Dresser
– Changing Table
– Rocking Chair
– Crib
– Bassinet
– Ottoman with Hidden Storage

3. Choose a Rug


A rug will be useful if you have hard flooring, but it’ll also add a beautiful touch of style to the room. Just make sure to chose something that matches easily; it doesn’t have to be cartoon characters.

4. Make it Safe

Baby proofing your nursery is something you won’t regret. It’ll give you peace of mind by adding an extra layer of safety for when your baby starts to be mobile.

5. Decorate the Walls

Keep it simple with wall decorations so the room doesn’t overwhelm you. Maybe an illustration of an elephant framed on one wall with your little boy’s name in letters across from his crib. Vinyl wall stickers are also great options because they easily come off of the wall without causing damage.

6. Cover the Bed

Choose crib bedding with a cute pattern or print on it for a contemporary and lasting look in the nursery (stripes are perfect for a boy’s nursery). This will be far easier to match with decor than a cartoon print, and is easy to find as well. Once you’re done with that you can hang the mobile on the crib.

7. Install Storage

If you don’t have a lot of storage already installed in the room, then you’ll want to build shelving or other storage units that will hold toys, clothing, and other baby items. One of the best ideas is to build a wood cube storage unit that you can place small baskets into for easy access.

8. Bring in Warmth

Bring in plush throw blankets, soft pillows, and cuddly cushions to make the room extra comfortable for you and your little guy.

9. Buy a Dimming Lamp

If the nursery doesn’t already have dimming lights, then bring in a dimming lamp that you can use when putting the baby to bed. You’ll be glad you have this when you need light but don’t want to turn on the brights!





10. Finish the Decor with Necessities

The last step is to add in all of the necessities! Diapers, wipes, a trash can, diaper rash ointment, baby monitor, burping cloths, and extra towels are just a few of the items you’ll want to have within reaching distance.
