DO YOU KNOW THE MOST IMPORTANT DECORATION DETAILS THAT WE SHOULD CONSIDER FOR THE HEALTH AND COMFORT OF OUR BABIES WHEN PREPARING THEIR ROOMS?
Safety, health, and comfort are the three most important factors besides visual quality when decorating rooms for the smallest members of our families. You should consider those factors also when shopping for items that are going to take place in their rooms. Many details from furniture to flooring, from wall color to the type of wall painting and curtains must be chosen carefully.
Create a peaceful environment for the baby without filling the room with unnecessary furniture and using complicated color combinations. The specialists do not suggest the use of carpentry in baby rooms because they trigger allergies by absorbing humidity. Instead, you can choose hardwood or laminated flooring that is easy to clean. The specialists suggest antibacterial carpeting for the families that carpeting is their only option.
The ideal colors are the pastel tones, when it comes to wall painting. You can choose light colors such as pink, white, and beige besides cold colors with calming effects such as blue, and green.
METAL DISTURBS SLEEP!
Metal furniture causes sleep disturbances and fatigue because they generate magnetic fields; therefore, their use in baby rooms are not suggested. Choose wooden furniture in your baby’s room instead of large metal furniture.
DUST PROOF CURTAINS
The curtain fabrics that are going to be used in baby rooms should be dust-mite-proof as well as being decorative. They should be in suitable thickness and color not to keep the sun light from entering the room and at the same time providing suitable darkness for the baby to fall asleep.
