If you are starting a room from scratch and furnishing a nursery for a new baby, it may be tempting to go for the full-on coordinated look available from high-end stores. Changing tables, cribs and and dressers, complete with matching rugs, curtains and wallpaper may be the ideal solution for the first few years, but they are expensive, soon outgrown and, when the design choices have already been made for you, they provide little scope for individuality. It is far better (and more economical in the long run) to start off with a few good pieces of basic furniture, plain walls and ceiling, and a simple floor covering. You can then introduce blocks of color and pattern by means of the soft furnishings, bedding and accessories. These can easily be changed and updated, the furniture can be repainted when a new look is demanded.
The first and most important consideration is that this room is for your child, not for you, meaning that whilst you may think clowns are a brilliant theme, you child may not. No matter how young your child is it is important to involve them in the process of choosing fixtures fittings and furniture, for instance when choosing blinds for kids rooms, beds for rooms, wardrobes and chests of drawers taking on board your child's input is vital. This goes beyond choosing a theme for a room, it also applies to the practicalities of the child living there, for instance, while you may think that a desk is not important, older children will need one for homework and using their computer.
Hopefully you'll at least feel happier that you have started on your decorating project and your kids will certainly be happier for having their rooms redone, and then there's also the sheer fun you'll have had whilst working with them. This last is of course a little tongue in cheek because decorating kids rooms generally isn't hassle or stress free. On the contrary there's a strong possibility that you'll have had a boatload more stress by the time you've finished, but at least you'll have had the satisfaction of getting closer to your kids and seeing their rooms clean for at least one day before they get back into their normal routine.
