Setting up the nursery can be especially hard for expecting parents who want a more neutral environment or parents who want to keep the sex of their baby a surprise. Luckily, we have many more options these days and you don’t have to choose between baby blue or pastel pink. There are plenty of things you need to think about when trying to put a nursery together: baby furniture, baby room wallpapers or paints, décor, and so on. Below we’ll go over a few different ways you can set up the perfect neutral nursery:
There is nothing worse than choosing out furniture or décor only to see that it doesn’t quite match later on. A great choice of furniture that always looks sleek, modern and classic is ivory furniture. Choose pieces that will take your kids way into the future so make sure you choose something simple that will stand the test of time. Choosing ivory pieces will look good in whatever colour scheme you decide to go with.
Choose A Theme
This is probably the most difficult part as you need to stick to gender neutral colors. One of the best combinations is most definitely soothing yellows and pastel greens. This combination looks fresh and bright and will look good for a nursery and kids room. If you want to take it an extra step further, you can add some baby room wallpapers that feature a small, detailed print. This is also good for stimulation in toddlers and babies, you can do this with a theme of colours or on neutral walls.
Keep Decor Personal
Most parents forget that this is not only a room for your new born, but it is also a space where you will be spending a lot of time as well. You really want to add décor that makes you feel comfortable, so make sure you add some character and personal touches. Just be careful not to overdo it – you want to leave a few things out and then you can add some more after the baby has come.
Just because the room isn’t gender themed it does not mean you can’t make the room feel homely and warm. It is important to create an inviting atmosphere and to include some personal touches. Don’t forget to put photo’s around before and after the baby come. You also want to make sure that you have some soft lighting for all those sleepless nights you’re about to get as well as some dark blinds to make sure baby is sleeping when he or she needs to be. If you are unsure of where to start looking for everything you need, you should try shopping online, this way you can easily browse a large selection without spending all day going from place to place, not to mention it’s a great way to find things that no one else near you has. Hopefully, after reading this article you feel inspired to go and create the perfect neutral nursery.
