Nursery Ideas for Girls on a budget for Moms & Dads
That being a parent (especially a first-timer) is exciting is an understatement. The common factor among Moms & Dads to-be is wanting the best for their precious ones. With wanting the “best” comes the tendency to overlook what’s practical.
Sure, putting up a nursery is one of the first things you’ll be doing for your little one and you want it to be nothing less than perfect. However, Mom/Dad-to-be, you’ve to keep in mind that who is going to move more in the nursery is YOU. That is exactly why we have gathered lovely parent-friendly nursery ideas for girls that won’t hurt your budget.
Themes, wall colors, fancy crib, closet, mobile, décor, décor, and more décor—the list seems endless. You can put all the décor once you’ve ticked all the necessities. Here are some general tips you want to keep in mind in your pre-shopping stage:
- Your baby girl’s not going to be a baby for long.– For your child’s familiarity, you want the nursery to grow easily into a toddler’s room. You can forget about the fancy cribs and check on convertibles (the ones that can transform into beds) like the one below:
2. Unlike us, babies cannot regulate their body temperature. – Regulating the temperature will help baby (and you) snooze and be comfy. Having a humidifier is going to be helpful. Add cute ones like these to your nursery ideas for girls:
- You cannot rock-a-bye-baby all night.– Put comfort over fancy. Rocking chairs are great, but you want a chair where you can nurse and nap comfortably, too. You wouldn’t want to be moving your living room couch to the nursery later. Rather than the fancy-conventional, check thesegirly gliders below:
- There is a “nappy-changing recipe.” – You will be doing diaper changes for some time, and you want to create a “station” that’ll showcase everything you’ll need: drawers that’ll house wipes, nappies, lotions, cotton balls, and etc. Practical tip: you can go for the ones that can transform into a desk or a shelf later.
A themed design is pleasing to the eye. However, mix-and-matching can also be fun—it will always depend on your tastes. Whatever your cup of tea, lovely ideas need not be expensive. Here are some nursery ideas for girls we have found for your putting-up stage:
Modern & Personalized
The pom-poms in this image are handmade. It adds a personal touch & lets you save instead of the usual mobile that’s costly and not really necessary.
Another thing we like here is the wall color. It’s neutral and minimalistic so you get saved from the trouble of having to change later. It is important to note that your baby girl’s going to identify her OWN likes sooner or later.
What we like about Victorian-themed nurseries is how snuggly gliders fit perfectly in the design.
Notice the crib? It’s another you can later convert into a toddler/kid’s bed.
We also like how the wall’s neutral in peach. The footrest (image center) also serves as a bin. While, the framed images (above the crib) are cross-stitched patterns—a hobby you might love while baby is still inside.
Pastels are cool colors, very pleasing to your and baby’s eyes. Pastel-themed nursery ideas for girls never get outdated.
In this particular image, we like how the crib (though not pastel) looked well in the room. You’ll love the drawers underneath it!
Princess or fairy tale nursery ideas for girls can be achieved with stickers and/or wallpaper that you can easily purchase. Stick them like how it’s been done in this lovely nursery, or go with your own style!
What’s great about stickers (instead of bold paint) is that they’re not expensive, they’re easy to put-up, and can easily be removed (in case your little princess gets over fairy tales or finds a new fave).
A New Floral
Flowers as nursery ideas for girls are still in—but, they need not be pink and very girly all the time.
Don’t you love how cute and warm the orange flowers are in this room? Plus, they suit Pooh bear.
You’ll also notice that the toddler bed used to be a crib. Here’s what we mean when we say nursery-to-kiddie bedroom.
