With so many painting baby room ideas that are available, we sometimes get stuck in the middle and not accomplish anything. It’s so easy to get overwhelmed, right? First of all, you don’t want to wait until the baby is born before you complete the nursery. You want everything to be ready when the baby arrives just because it’s easier and more practical. Of course the first thing that you have to do is to decide on the overall theme of the room. Some parents choose neutral themes but others want a gender specific room.
There are numerous creative painting baby room ideas and baby room stickers that are super cute. One popular baby room wall idea is going for stripes which will definitely spruce up the nursery. There’s nothing wrong in painting the walls with solid colors but if you are feeling a bit more creative and you want your little angel’s room to step out of the ordinary, stripes is the way to achieve this. No, you don’t have to hire a professional to do this for you because it’s so easy!
Before you do your stripes, make sure you have already applied a satin base coat to the walls. Let it dry completely. Measure each wall of the room so you’ll know exactly how thick each stripe is. Thicker stripes are ideal in a baby’s room. Measure around the base of the wall and pencil in tic marks. This is where each stripe should begin. You have to extend the tic marks vertically up the wall. Now you can put Frogtape (painter’s tape) vertically along the edges of the lines to mark off every other stripe. The tape should cover any of the stripe to be painted. When you’re done taping, you’re ready to paint. One primary color and white is the safest approach but you can also have two pastel colors if you want. It’s totally up to you!
If you want to be bolder on the other hand, why not pair your stripes with some really cute patterns? You can paint stripes on the lower half of the wall and then the upper half would have a bit more of an intricate design. Patterns are awesome painting baby room ideas because they emit vibrancy to the room. They are also effective in making the room look striking and distinctive. For this job, you can use stencils to make everything easier and smoother. You can also buy wall decals or appliqués to finish the project a lot faster.
