Five Tips to Decorating Children’s Room or Nursery

Decorating a nursery or children’s room can be very exciting, especially for first-time parents (and grandparents). There are so many styles and patterns you can explore, it can be hard to decide. This is a fun opportunity for women to connect with their own mothers to design a space for their future children.

At Fabrics That Go, we’ve put together a few things to consider when designing your children’s room or nursery.

Pick a Theme

Are you having a boy or a girl? Keeping the mystery until their birthday? When you are thinking about what theme you want for your baby’s space you have to consider if you’d like to pursue a gender neutral feel, or if you have different ideas depending on what you’re having. It is recommended that you choose a style that can grow with your child. 

Some of the Most Popular Themes:


  • Floral


  • Cowboy



Your theme or style can be showcased through drapery.

Consider a fabric that has a thickness or material that darkens the room for naps, or a double rod window treatment that allows for a light blocking fabric layered beneath decorative fabric that matches the theme, which can be converted as the child grows.

You can even use sheer fabrics to create a beautiful drapery for accenting the crib.


Fabric Upholstery & Accessories

Your theme can be accented or complemented with the choice of fabric in furniture upholstery and other fabric accessories. 

There are multiple pieces that can be upholstered which bring life into the room:

  • Rocker/Glider Chair
  • Ottoman
  • Lamp Shades
  • Decorative Pillows
  • Textile Bound Rugs
  • More!

Fabric selection can make all the difference in designing a nursery. When you shop at Fabrics That Go, you will find over 10,000 bolts of in-stock fabrics to choose from. Solid Denims for chairs and spreads with colorful pillows of plush fabrics work wonderfully. Using Sunbrella Acrylic fabric that is virtually stain-resilient, washable, and fade-resistance is perfect. Whether you are looking for neutral creams or grays, to bright and colorful Southwestern Patterns, our experts are here to help.
