If you are a soon-to-be dad that has stopped by to research whether you should DIY this project or hire a professional to do the work; I‘m going to share a survival tip with you; there is so much more to decorating stylish baby nurseries than simply choosing a nursery theme, a baby bedding collection and a wall paint color.

The emotional as well as the aesthetic aspects of the process can't be ignored. Plus there is the issue of perhaps the most commonly asked question on this site; "how much does a nursery cost to set up?".

Unique Baby Gear Ideas recognizes that it is so important to an expectant mother for her newborn’s first room to be just right in every way. And if you are nearly as smart as I believe you to be, you will be respectful of your mate’s nesting instincts since those with less savvy may suffer the consequences.


At times this holds true and everything falls right into place without having so much as an off-colored paint chip. And then there are those moments when you just can‘t catch a break; the baby bedding that mom has her heart set on has been discontinued, the crib has been back ordered or (even worse) recalled and the list of potential disasters goes on and on. Most of us only decorate a couple (or less) of nurseries in a lifetime and it would be nice to have pleasant memories rather than to look back and recall a feeling of disaster.

Why do some projects run smooth as silk while others jump the tracks? Planning..plain and simple planning with attention to details and yes, a little luck, rule the day. Nothing dooms the process of a decorating baby nurseries than taking a lackadaisical, hit or miss approach.

Some girls plan their weddings and imagine themselves wearing a designer bridal gown and veil over and over again while others only dream of what their baby’s room will look like. I can’t count the times a mother-to-be has told me that they knew what their nursery’s decor would be from the time that they were little more than babies themselves. And then there are those that don’t have a clue about an infant’s most basic needs and necessities much less how to design a nursery that is both safe and attractive. Whether you fall into the former or the latter category, it’s best to take a step by step approach and don‘t wait until the third trimester to get started designing the baby nurseries of our dreams!
