Home Décor: Create a Baby's Room on a Budget

With a baby on the way, it's nice to know that you can create a playful, delightful home décor in their special room without spending a fortune. If you're willing to plan carefully, shop for unfinished furniture, or buy used doors, drapes, and accessories, you can make it all happen at a cost you can live with.

Whether you're buying new or used beds, rockers, lamps, chests of drawers, or toy boxes, your first consideration should be child safety, not the price tag. You can discover safety requirements and ratings for popular furniture, toys, and accessories easily online.

Setting the Home Décor for Baby
Babies grow up fast. That's why you want to select a style or theme that can hold up for a number of years. Themes from popular movies and television shows are always a great idea, as are generic kids' themes such as oceans, zoos or safaris, sports, tree houses, outer space, sugar and spice, or angels and fairies.

Don't attach a stigma to family hand-me-downs: they can save you plenty. Choosing a simple paint or wallpaper scheme for window frames and doors can also suit a tight budget. Try to buy plush toys or other baby playthings in colors that match the décor. It's a great way to coordinate a look without spending a fortune.

Having a baby shower? Don't be afraid to ask your friends and family members to choose items that fit your color or theme. There's often a friend in your circle with a child that has outgrown toys, furnishings, or accessories that will complement the look.
