Firstly, let's be very clear.
A sensory room is very different from a nursery. A nursery is generally a room solely filled with positive sleep associations such as night lights, diffusers, and a white noise machine. It's a room dedicated to promoting healthy sleep, while a sensory room is a space for a baby to explore, learn and play. It's a room or area specifically designed to spark your child's imagination with sensory toys designed to stimulate their minds to help with their development.
Think colours, textures, sounds, smells, and engaging, sensory toys that will ignite their curiosity and inspire movement.
Now that we're clear on the definition of a sensory room let's get into what decor you may find in a sensory room for babies...
