As an expectant mother, it’s normal to get anxious over the birth of your baby. Preparing the nursery is a perfect way to work off those nerves. Looking through different colors, and ideas for the baby’s room can quicken your anticipation for the birth of your baby.
If you’re searching for decor items but you’re leaning towards a gender-neutral nursery, then that’s just fine. There are many reasons why you would want a gender-neutral nursery for your kids.
You may be waiting for the birth to confirm the sex of your child or you just might be expecting multi-sex twins. You could even be tired of the age-old color categorization and looking for something that’s not pink or blue.
Here, we will explore a few ideas that will help you design the perfect gender-neutral nursery for your kids.
Choose a theme
Choosing a theme is a good way to lay the groundwork for your nursery design. There are a variety of themes you can choose from a winter wonderland, sea adventure, space, animal, and cartoon themes.
The good thing is, each of these themes helps you incorporate several different colors so you don’t have to worry about favoring one gender over the other.
Go with neutral colors
How can you create a cozy gender-neutral nursery without neutral colors? There are a variety of colors to choose from. Grey is perfect because it’s so versatile and matches perfectly with other color palettes.
Besides, you can never go wrong with aqua and the other varieties of green. Lavender is another color that swings with either sex and you’re always safe with white because it makes other colors shine much brighter.
Select wooden pieces for your kids’ furniture
When it comes to the furniture in the nursery, functionality is the keyword. From cribs to storage spaces, and charging stations, you want something that gets the job done without clashing with the decor of the room.
Wooden elements are the perfect additions to a gender-neutral nursery. They bring a certain warmth to the room and it helps that they’re often so durable. Whatever colors you choose to go with, wooden furniture is a good match.
Don’t underestimate the power of good lighting
It’s easy to get so carried away with all other aspects of nursery decor, that you forget about lighting. Lighting is an important part of every room design because it adds a certain ambiance to space.
While designing a gender-neutral nursery, make sure you have good lighting. You could incorporate some nightlights into the design so your child can feel safe in the dark. Be careful not to place any lighting fixtures directly above the crib.
Add a gallery wall
A gallery wall can be a creative addition to a gender-neutral nursery. You can put up art pieces that feature characters from cartoons or other fun pictures. Use creative frames and be sure to hang the frames high enough so they’re out of reach. As you well know, children can get very handsy.
There you have it! A few simple ways to design a gender-neutral nursery with tips on choosing the perfect kids furniture to lighting and color schemes. With the right idea, you can create the perfect nursery for your child.
