Best colours for babies bedroom

When it comes to decorating babies bedroom you might find yourself stuck as to what colours to use, even if you know the gender of your baby this can still be a difficult decision to make, especially after hearing horror stories of people being told the wrong gender for their baby. When your baby is first born their eyesight will only be able to see black, white and grey tones well, so effectively it doesn’t matter to baby what colour you decorate their room, though of course it doesn’t stay that way for long.

Colours to avoid include big and bold blocks of colour, particularly red which can be confusing for a baby and is often associated to aggression and an inability to focus. Softer shades are always preferred for babies as babies can perceive these colours better as they develop. If used properly red can be part of your nursery as it has been proven to energize the body.

Of course the colour scheme you decide on should be based entirely on your personal preference, choose the colour scheme you like the most for your little prince or princess. Remember, there is no right or wrong way to decorate your nursery, furthermore, your baby won’t stay a baby for very long, so you will likely be redecorating in a couple of years anyway.
