When you're designing the baby nursery it's really tempting to go crazy with the whole baby theme. It's only natural to want to just go over-the-top cute with all things baby. These days, more couples are finding out the sex of their baby, enabling them and their friends and family to start shopping early. You can have a name picked out and everything personalized before the baby makes his (or her) grand appearance.

If you want to do that, go for it! Fill that baby nursery with baby boy gifts or baby girl gifts to your heart's content. Go nuts on the walls and stencil cartoon characters, butterflies, flowers, trains, or anything else you can think of. You might even go for wallpaper that practically screams “a newborn lives here”. Before you start investing all of that time and money, consider these things:

? Budget. Do you have the budget to change the décor in a few years when the child gets older?

? Space. Do you have a large enough house that you can move the baby out of the nursery and into another bedroom once he or she gets older? School aged children aren't happy sleeping in anything that resembles a nursery.

Decorating the baby nursery is one of the final ways of preparing for the birth of the baby. Months have gone by and you've gradually gotten used to the idea of a new baby. As the time gets a little closer, decorating the nursery is a great way to work with the newfound nesting instinct that seems to take over. That's great! But if you're looking for ways to save money down the road, keep the baby nursery décor simple.
