A wicker bed frame is a fantastic way to incorporate this warm, natural fabric into your baby's room. It's easy to clean, doesn't stain, and goes well with most bedding sets.
Wicker is a great choice for small bedrooms because it is neither bulky nor heavy. Bedding should be placed on top of the wicker, not hidden from view. Wicker is a natural material, so it is not eternal.
You can sand or paint it to extend its life and customize the look of the frame. If you're considering using a wicker bed frame, make sure it's a type of wood that won't leave splinters. If you're going to paint it, make sure the wicker is clean and free of dirt and debris, and that the paint you choose is non-toxic.
A wicker bed frame can be used as a headboard or to surround the top of the bed. Hang curtains above a wicker frame to create a wall behind the bed.
It is also possible to use wicker to make a footboard, but check with your contractor that it is safe.
A dresser is the perfect place to store your baby's clothes. Its warm, earthy color goes with almost any color combination, and it's easy to clean and maintain. A chest of drawers can be used as a dressing table or to store small items in the baby's room.
You can also use it to store baby blankets.
Be sure to clean the drawers regularly and use protective covers inside the drawers to prevent dust and debris from settling into the wicker.
If you are using a chest of drawers with wooden drawers, they can be lined with a soft material.
However, check the condition of the drawers regularly. Wicker that is old or has been exposed to sunlight can dry out and become brittle. In this case, you can re-moisten the wood to make it soft again.
A bookshelf is a great place to store your baby's favorite book and toys. You can also use wicker shelves in a play area by stacking toys on them. Wicker is easy to clean and will allow your child to access and play with their toys independently. Create a wall of bookshelves that you can fill with your child's favorite books and toys. As your child grows, you can move the shelves to another wall, or remove them from the wall entirely. This way, the shelves will not take up space in your child's room when they are older. If you use wood and wicker shelves, make sure they are not exposed to direct sunlight or extreme heat. This will dry out the wood, making it brittle and susceptible to splitting. In these circumstances, you can re-moisten the wood, or choose to sand or paint the shelves.
A lampshade is the perfect place to add a pop of color to your baby's room, especially if you're working with a neutral theme. Wicker lampshades are easy to clean, and they come in a wide range of colors and patterns. If you use a lampshade, make sure the bulb does not touch the wicker. The wicker would burn and the lampshade would be damaged. Never leave a lamp unattended and make sure the lampshade is placed out of the baby's reach. Wicker lampshades are not difficult to clean. Simply wipe them with a damp cloth.
Make sure the cloth does not get wet, as this will rot the wicker and damage the lampshade. Never use a water-based cleaner on a wicker lampshade, as it will stain the fabric.
Wall decoration and vases
Wicker baskets are a fantastic way to add color and pattern to a wall. They're woven, which means they're hard to break, and they can be used to store toys, books, or even shoes!
You can use wicker baskets to store toys on the wall or use them as decoration in the room. You can also use them to decorate the space above your baby's bed. You can even use two baskets to create a sort of “wall shelf”. If you use wooden baskets to decorate your baby's room, make sure they are not exposed to direct sunlight or extreme heat. This will dry out the wood, making it brittle and susceptible to splitting. In these circumstances, you can re-moisten the wood, or choose to sand or paint the baskets.
The Pendant Light
A wicker pendant light is a fantastic way to brighten up your baby's room. Pendant lights are a great way to add visual interest to a room, while creating a comfortable ambiance. A wicker pendant light goes with most color themes. However, try to choose a shade that is not too bright, so that the light does not disturb your baby.
You can also use a wicker basket to house the lamp, which creates a rustic ambiance. Remember to clean the wicker regularly to remove any dust or debris that may have settled on it.
You can also paint or stain the wicker to extend its life and change the look of the lamp.
Wicker is an ideal fabric for creating a warm, earthy aesthetic in your baby's room. Its natural colors and textures are easy to incorporate into almost any design, and it is easy to clean and maintain. If you're looking to create a natural, bohemian ambiance, wicker is the ideal choice. Its warm colors match most color combinations and it is easy to integrate into your baby's room.
