Frugal Tips For Decorating Nursery Room Walls


Decorating your baby’s nursery is exciting, but if you have a limited budget it can be extremely daunting. You will need to find frugal ideas so that you can create the perfect space. You’d be surprised how many ideas there are to help get your nursery exactly how you want it to look. Often the nursery is a room in the house that has been neglected which is why it may take more time and effort.

Frugal decorating ideas are excellent, and can help you to save money for other items that the baby will need. Here are 5 decorating tips that Baby’s Own Room is only too happy to share.

1. Choose a great paint sale time, and don’t be afraid to think out of the box. Bright, primary colors are the most popular to decorate a nursery with, and what better way to finish the room than with a colorful border. You will need to find the best place to purchase paint, unless you are fortunate enough to be given some by family and friends.

2. Get creative and upcycle. If you are crafty and creative, you may be able to use magazine pictures, which have been laminated to decorate your walls. There are so many family and baby magazines to choose from. Removable wall decals are another fun idea to think about.

3. Use patterned paper as a border. An alternative supplier such as teacher supply stores will be far cheaper. These stores offer many different items that you may not have considered, including letters and numbers that can be perfect in the nursery.

4. Use your own personal photos. Photos that you have taken at your baby shower make great nursery wall decor. This is another great way to decorate on a budget, as these can be laminated, or framed at a low cost.

5. Stencils are another exciting way to be creative on a budget. Fortunately they are straightforward to use. You can use your imagination or get help from a really crafty friend to create your own style.

You will be amazed how creative you can be when you need to save money. Have any tips or ideas to share? Get started now by browsing our affordable wall decor ideas and happy decorating!

  1. Great tips. We installed an inexpensive chair rail so we could use a darker color on the bottom and lighter on top. Very inexpensive.
