Welcome back! If you’ve been keeping up with our latest blog series, you have learned many tips that you can consider for decorating your baby’s room to create a serene and tranquil atmosphere that inspires calmness and sleep. Follow these links to read parts one and two of this series. Today, we will continue looking at a few more tips for creating a truly comfortable and peaceful nursery for your baby.
Curtains and Drapes
In part one, we mentioned the importance of balancing natural lighting with artificial lighting created by a Himalayan salt lamp to gently illuminate the baby’s room. Because you will want to allow natural lighting in, you will want to be able to control how much light gets in depending on whether your baby is playing or sleeping in their room. Layer blackout drapes, blinds, and sheer curtains so that you have full control over how much light enters the room.
Essential oils have been used for centuries as aromatic home remedies to relieve stress and anxiety, encourage relaxation and sleep, and even soothe symptoms of colds and allergies. Place an essential oil diffuser near your baby’s crib and use lavender, vanilla, chamomile, and ylang-ylang to calm and relax them.
Make Use of Soft Textures
Using soft textures in your baby’s room provides comfort that can be seen and felt. In part one, we mentioned implementing shag carpet or rugs for additional floor padding, but you can also use sheepskins. Draping chairs and other furniture with soft throws, fuzzy throw pillows, and even hanging decorative throws on the walls can mute loud sounds both inside and outside of your baby’s room while also providing them with a snuggly, cushiony space to play and nap.
Overhead lights are a common feature in most homes, but these can be incredibly bright and may even feature fluorescent bulbs which can be quite alarming. Rather, use accent lighting to create a calm space for you and baby. Try using several small Himalayan salt lamps in the room to give off plenty of illumination but without the harsh brightness of overhead lighting.
Order Himalayan Salt Lamps for Baby’s Room
Along with providing a tranquil light source, there are so many benefits to using Himalayan salt lamps in your baby’s room: they can be personalized using colored bulbs to change the hue of the light; they naturally reduce the amount of dust and allergens in the area around the salt lamp; and have a calming effect given off by the negative ions.
