As always, waiting for the delivery is exciting—especially if it’s your first baby. There are a lot of things to prepare, and a room for the bub is going to be on the top list for sure. While some parents prefer to keep the baby’s gender as a surprise, then a design of gender neutral nursery will be perfect.
Why a gender neutral nursery is a good thing is because you won’t have to buy specific accessories or decorations for the image of typical girl’s or boy’s room. There, you will only need to find things that aren’t too feminine or masculine. Forget those flowery pattern sheets or wallpaper and get a more neutral prints of them; such as plaid, stripes, also tribal. Get rid of dark blue or navy paint, and go with white and grey. If you want to bring a little warmth in the room, then the color bronze or any shades of brown will help.
Another thing about a gender neutral room is that, you might need less color and patterns in the room. Toys and stuffed animals are okay, but stay away from ones like Barbie or cars. For wall details, you may put family pictures on, or display neutral decorations on some shelves. Wall hangings, stickers/vinyl decals, or framed prints of plants are also fine, if you want to bring a natural touch to the room.
Gender Neutral Nursery Ideas
As the most-neutral color, white plays well in creating a gender neutral look in a room. A full-white room can be an option, but bringing another hue such as grey to the room will still create the same ambiance. In case you want the tone to be a little bold, combine with black or dark brown of wood.
Meanwhile, if you don’t really like the monochrome scheme, an adventure or bohemian themed room might attract you. Some cane works, tribal rug, wooden details and the complement of green plants will help you with that.
Instead, when you don’t really like the bold look yet a grey or white room looks just boring to you, then a warm-toned room can be your option. Also, it’s perfect for a wood-working project lover.
