Creating a Galaxy of Wonder: Space-themed Nursery Decor Ideas


Are you searching for an out-of-this-world idea to create an impressive nursery for your little one? A space-themed nursery can be the perfect way to combine an educational theme with fun and imagination for your child. From glowing stars on the ceiling to rocket-shaped bookshelves, there are countless ways to create a galaxy of wonder in your baby’s room. Read on for some fantastic space-themed nursery decor ideas to inspire your inner astronaut.

Wall Decorations and Murals

The walls of a space-themed nursery are an excellent location to display the vastness of space. A mural with drifting astronauts, planets, and galaxies creates immersive visual stimulation for your child.

You could consider a feature wall painted in deep navy blue for the “sky,” sprinkled with glowing, twinkling stars on the ceiling. The addition of a bright constellation feature wall is a perfect addition to any little stargazer’s room.


Space-inspired furniture is a great way to add depth of the galaxy, and there is no shortage of creativity here. An excellent addition could be a rocket-shaped bookshelf that allows your child to store their favorite bedtime stories, A model rocket table, and rocket-shaped chairs.

A comfortable and plush rug in the shape of a planet or star is a good flooring option to complete the room’s theme.

Lighting and Accessories

Adding a space-themed lamp can illuminate the room in an exciting way, and with such peculiar lighting, your child’s space-themed nursery will always appear whimsical. The addition of neon lights adds a futuristic essence to space-themed rooms and can be a perfect addition to your baby’s night-time routine.

Accessories such as telescopes, glow in the dark stars, and spaceships lend themselves well to a space-themed bedroom, and the addition of a NASA helmet can add an extra touch of authenticity to your little astronaut’s space helmet.

Colors and Textures

When it comes to a space-themed room, a little creativity can go a long way. To cultivate a visually appealing and educationally sound room, it’s about things that remind your little ones of planets and stars. Although black, navy, and deep blue are widely used colors for a space-themed bedroom, you may also opt for a pale or bright blue to evoke the illusion of a bright sky. A cosmic print fabric on your baby’s walls can give them an out-of-this-world feeling and texture in the nursery.
