To imbue a room with a specific theme, you can use different elements: furniture, decorative objects, carpet, wall, bed linen, toys, curtains, lighting... You can give free rein to your imagination, as long as each element adopted turns to a single theme.
In this article, we offer various theme ideas for a baby's room. You can find inspiration there. Between the theme of the savannah, the sea, the sky, the forest..., you will be spoiled for choice. But before that, let's discover together some parameters to take into consideration for the selection of the ideal theme.
Things to consider when choosing a theme for the baby's room
To choose the right theme for your little one's night room, certain criteria must be considered. Here are a few.
The design style and material of the furniture installed in the bedroom
To know which theme to adopt in your toddler's room, you will have to refer, among other things, to the elements you plan to place there, starting with the furniture. The style of the furniture, as well as their material of manufacture can have a great influence on the theme to be selected.
If for example you have opted for a modern chest of drawers in blue color, this one will be perfect in a theme based on the sea. In addition to the chest of drawers, other pieces of furniture can be placed in the room: wardrobe, desk, chair, armchair, bed and mattress, nightstand. So you won't forget them.
The sex of your little darling: an important criterion
To successfully decorate a baby's room, you must always take their gender into account, especially when choosing the color to apply to the walls, but also when deciding on the style to integrate or the patterns to add.
That doesn't mean you have to stick to the traditional code of pink for a girl and blue for a boy. Several other shades are suitable for a girl and a boy. The sex of your child will rather allow you to decide on the theme of the decoration.
For example, a boy will have a preference for themes centered on small cars, animals or the jungle, while the girl will have a penchant for a theme on dolls, Disney princesses or even flowers.
The dimensions of the child's room
The size of the room is a criterion that you should not neglect when you approach the subject of the decorative theme to choose. If the room is quite narrow, it is recommended that you bet on a theme with sober and light elements. This will prevent you from weighing down the decor and visually making the space even more restricted.
On the other hand, if the room is spacious, do not hesitate to integrate extravagant patterns and large decorations. A life-size painting, for example, would be welcome. The important thing is to harmonize the whole and above all not to make false notes.
The little one's toys and accessories
When you decorate a child's room, you should not omit your baby's accessories either, including toys, stuffed animals and comforters. You will match the theme with the furniture, with the dimensions of the room, but also with the little things of your cherub. In any case, make sure that everything is in harmony. The decor of the room will then be uniform and original.
If the child is old enough to have their own room and make some decisions, so let him select the theme he prefers. Does he rather like the planets and the cosmos, everything related to cars or the animal world? Ask his opinion, he will give it to you without a doubt. Besides, it's his room in question, why wouldn't he participate in its decoration!
