When you’re pregnant, it can be both an exciting and a nerve-wracking time. Although parents-to-be usually have at least nine months to prepare for their new little one, there’s a surprising amount that has to be done before baby’s arrival!

Moms-to-be suddenly find themselves inundated with doctor’s appointments, baby showers, and other pre-baby events. While some parents find shopping for a new little one to be stressful, most parents find it super exciting.

One of the most fun things to do as a parent-to-be is to set up the baby’s room. Nowadays, parents put a lot of effort into baby nurseries.

Gone are the days when baby nurseries were just plain rooms with a crib and changing table! Parents today make sure their babies have perfectly decorated rooms.

From elegant to whimsical to colorful, parents have tried every theme out there. Check out these 20 beautiful baby nurseries to find inspiration for your own baby room!
