My daughter is 9 months old. And we are moving and her room is going to be bigger!! but here is the thing.. the only thing i am moving is her crib and change table. She has a ton of closet space so no need for a dresser, and her shelves. Her new room already has a ton of shelves on it. One other problem is her room is all panelling on the walls so we don't have to paint. And all the closets have mirrors on them.. Any suggestions of what to do to make her room feel more comfortable. The floors are laminate . Any suggestions would be appreciated!!!

maybe adding lots of warm materials and textures , pretty rugs , even hang some materials from the roof draped over the bed , some cute little chairs or bean bags and cosy cushions .

My daughter has a TON of glow in the dark stars on her ceiling and high up on the walls. We even arranged them into constellations and she loves it. Get a really intriguing wall paper border and paper the bottom of the wall where she can see it. The place a baby looks at the most is right in front of them. So when she's lying on her back she can see the stars and when she's crawling or walking she can see the wallpaper patterns. :)

Thank you everyone You have all given me a ton of ideas!!!

Thank you Loureen for the link I am going to check it out!!

Megan my daughter is only 9 months old.. and she isn't as advanced as most babies but she is where she should be in her development.. she was 2 months early so all the doctors go by her corrected age which would be 7 months.. I know it doesn't really make any sense, but in the end she is healthy!!

A soft colorful rug for the floor & look into some fabrics or curtain panels to hang on the walls over the wood paneling. How old is your daughter? Maybe a playtable and chairs for her to color at? Check our pottery barn kids- they have a lot of cute stuff, most of it is pretty expensive but you can get lots of ideas...

If she has toys you can line them up on her shelves and any stuffed animals that she has been given. It also could be as simple as putting a child friendly border at chair rail height so she can see it. With the mirrors you can always get window stickers that come off or buy some glass paint and paint girly things on the mirrored doors. I would not get rid of them because they will provided amusement for your daughter in the coming months and years.

A cheap alternative I found is drawing/coloring or coloring and cutting out pictures of things like fish and butterflies and laminating them to use as decor. At a younger age you can use felt and fabrics as a safer decor alternative. It's also fairly inexpensive.

I'd recommend trying to take the mirrors off the closet doors or replacing the doors. It's oh-so-easy to break them and you wouldn't want the broken glass on your baby's floor!

If you want to hide the paneling, a cheap alternative to removing it/painting it is to attach material/curtains/sheets at the ceiling (either with heavy duty staples or curtain rods) and let the material be "wallpaper". Attach it at the floor level the same way. You could switch out the material later on to change the appearance of the room. (saw this on a home improvement show and it looked great!)
