Nursery Flooring Inspiration!
Decorating your nursery involves a lot of decisions, including choosing furniture, bedding, accessories and paint colors. You can also make your nursery unique by including fun flooring in the décor scheme of the room. There are many options to consider, depending on the current floor in the room, how much you want to change it and your budget. Whether you choose from stencil/painted floors, cute rugs or cork flooring, you can’t go wrong because they are all great options to make your baby’s nursery unique and fun. Choose the option best suited for you and your new baby!
If your room has hardwood flooring, painting and stenciling the floor can look amazing! Coordinate with your bedding fabric and colors, or make a simple pattern such as stripes, stars or chevron.
White Painted Floors.
For a clean modern look, consider painting your wood floor white. A simple white crib with white or pastel bedding can be beautiful, or try mostly white décor with some pops of color. White floors will make everything in the room bright and fresh.
An area rug is an easy way to add a punch of color or pattern to the room. Choose a fun pattern that coordinates but is different enough from the rest of the room to make an impact. Stains and spills can be hard to clean up, but rugs and carpeting are sure to give your little one a soft floor for rolling and playing.
Dark Wood Floors.
The contrast of dark flooring with light or white colored furniture and bedding can be beautiful! Dark wood floors can make a stunning statement in your nursery.
Some other things to think about when considering flooring options:
Try to keep it free of allergens and emissions, and keep it clean and sanitized to make it safe for baby. It’s a given that messes will happen with a little one around, so you want something easy to clean. Make sure the floor is soft and not slippery. Babies fall, bump and tumble no matter how carefully you watch them. In order to keep baby safe, make sure your floor is not slippery and as soft as possible. Replacing flooring can be expensive; make sure whatever you choose is worth the investment.
Whether you choose from stencil/painted floors, cute rugs or wood nursery flooring, you can’t go wrong because they are all great options to make your baby’s nursery unique and fun. Choose the option best suited for you and your new baby!
