Baby Girl Room Ideas

Many moms wonder about what the baby girl nursery should be. You probably already saw other baby girl’s nurseries that you loved, and you probably already asked some moms what are the must have’s. After all, you just want the best for your baby.

While there are so many items to choose from, there are some items that are an absolute have in any baby girl room:

The crib is especially important. After all, your baby is going to spend a lot of time there. The crib bumper is incredibly important and you can either choose a more neutral color or a reddish tone to stand out. And in case you like, a canopy just gives the room that innocent look.

Changing Station

More than beautiful, the changing station needs to be practical. However, there are a lot of things that you can do to have both. One of the things that you can do to make it quite unique is to hang some family photos on the wall. You can then talk to your baby girl, when you are changing her, about each family member. After all, there’s nothing like family.

Rocking Chair

This is a must-have. Even if your baby’s room isn’t very big, there are some smaller rocking chairs that you can definitely have. One thing is for sure: you are going to have many quality time moments with your little one.


Books are amazing and most babies love them. Well, they love hearing your voice talking to them 😉 Nevertheless, having a good bookshelf on the wall near the rocking chair just looks amazing. Besides, the bedtime stories are a must-have for every parent.

Top Toddler Girl Bedroom Ideas

Your little baby girl is all grown up. Well, she’s now a toddler and there are some changes that you need to make in her room to make it appropriate to her. Here are some of the items that you should consider:

Transition Bed

Well, it’s time to say goodbye to the old crib and welcome the new transition bed that should be low to the ground. One of the things you can do to make her safe is to add a bunch of pillows of different sizes, colors, shapes, and even textures. Your little girl will love it and they can help her feel cozier n her new bed.

As you’ll see, your toddler is now spending a lot more time on the floor playing. So, one of the best things that you can do is to get some rugs to make the floor comfortable. And yes, even if you have a carpet in her room, a rug is always a good option.

Little Girl Bedroom Ideas

One of the things that you need to remember (no matter how hard it is) is that your baby is growing every day. And guess what? She is no longer a baby. She is a little girl, your little girl. So, you need to make sure that she has a room adapted to her age as well as to what she actually likes (combined with what you like too 😉 ) Here are some ideas that you can use:


Most little girls love their dollhouses and they can spend hours playing with them. In addition, it’s great for their creativity.

Better than pretending she is grown up is to sleep in a grownup bed, all on her own. What a grown little girl you have.

Creating a reading corner is something that you should definitely consider. If your girl has the habit of reading, why can’t you create the right atmosphere for her to do what she likes? Just put some extra pillows on a corner, a beautiful rug, and the bookshelves near it. In case your girl prefers, you can hang a beautiful swing chair instead. You can be sure that will look amazing and the best of all, she is going to love it.

Have a Small Bedroom? No Problem!

When your girl’s bedroom is small, you don’t need to stress out. You still have plenty of room to put everything that you want (adn she wants) in there. Here are some ideas to maximize the little space available that you have:

Bunkbed with workstation under

When your girl is already older, she definitely needs to have her own workstation where she can do her drawings, her homework, and study. So, having a bunked bed with a workstation under gives you all the flexibility that you need. You can still use the wall and ceiling to have the room decored as you want, and she has the extra room she needs.

Bunkbed with playhouse over

If your girl is still young, she is going to love the idea of being able to hide while she plays. And nothing better to do that having a bunk bed with a playhouse over when the room is small.

Choosing The Right Colors For Your Girl’s Room

A good color palette choice is crucial for any room decor. And it becomes even more important when we’re talking about your girl. While most people tend to immediately think about pink, there are many other colors that can look amazingly well in your girl’s bedroom.

We just couldn’t overlook pink. After all, we are talking about a girl. In case you don’t want to go so traditional, you can mix different pink tones, for example.

Mint Green

This color creates a great atmosphere similar to being outdoors. You can even add some paintings on the wall like trees, grass, flowers, birds, butterflies, among so many others.

Light Grey

When you prefer to use a neutral color on the walls, light grey works very well. This color choice adds you the flexibility of mixing other colors in the rest of the room decor.

Bright Colors

Kids love bright colors and it is said that it helps them. So, why not take some bright colors? You can even decide to paint a rainbow.

Just A Bright Color Touch

If you are more traditional but you still like bright colors, you can decide to have your walls mostly on a neutral tone and add a painting with a brighter color, for example. Just take a flamingo, for example.

Angelic White

Children are like small angels that bless our lives every day. So, why not use a pure angelic white in your girl’s room?
