How to Create a Gender-Neutral Nursery [Video]

Many new parents are choosing gender-neutral names and designing gender-neutral spaces for their little ones to grow up in. Traditional pink hues for girls and blue shades for boys are fading away. Whether you’re trying to encourage your child to step away from these color stereotypes, or you’re looking for a unique style, gender-neutral nursery options are everywhere and easy to create.

Pick Your Baby’s Nursery Theme

The easiest way to set up a gender-neutral nursery is by choosing a gender-neutral theme. From there, you’ll have more inspiration to choose the color palette, accessories, and furniture. Some gender-neutral themes are:

  • Space
  • Nature
  • Nautical
  • Travel
  • Circus
  • Patterns
  • Storybook
  • Animals

Choosing the Color Palette

Take an element of your nursery’s theme and look at the colors present. In most animal-oriented designs, you’ll find greens, oranges, and beiges – use those in your color palette. Make sure the color you choose for your walls is the softer one of the palettes, other brighter colors can be sprinkled throughout the room with accessories. Some gender-neutral colors to consider are:

  • Yellows
  • Greens
  • Oranges
  • Whites
  • Browns
  • Grays

Consider the Nursery Furniture

Most nursery furniture is already gender-neutral as the majority comes in white or wood options. However, you can still take it a step further and consider acrylic furniture. Celebrities like Khloé Kardashian rave about this trend, and it brings a modern touch to any nursery room.

Keep in mind that your baby will soon outgrow the furniture you add, so choose furniture that remains timeless and can fit in with the rest of your house. This is why it’s recommended that you decorate your nursery as you would a guest room.

Make It Unique with Accessories

Instead of adding pops of color with the wall paint or the furniture, use accessories to make the room unique. Keep the neutral palette by choosing unexpected colors that aren’t blues or pinks. For example, an overall muted white room can include accessories in oranges, browns, and reds for a more rustic look. If you go for a nautical style, don’t just think about blues, consider oranges, reds, and greens to tie back to the ocean.

Remember, the accessories are the way to incorporate your personality and bring the theme altogether. Choose toys wisely as well, books, pillows, and stuffed animals are GR8 accessories to keep everything gender-neutral.

Remember the Gift Registry

Here’s one thing most people forget to think about. The moment everyone knows you’re having a boy or a girl, expect to receive gender-specific toys, décor elements, and items that might derail your gender-neutral nursery plans. Be open about your plans for setting up a gender-neutral room for your baby. Make sure they’re aware of the color palette, theme, and ideas you have.

Clearly, you’ll have many options to choose from. Experiment with contrasting blacks and whites, try a soft mint for the wall, and maybe consider a bright colored room that incorporates all the colors. Gender-neutral nurseries are everywhere these days. If you have some ideas, share them with us at #GR8Nursery.
