3 Tips for Creating the Perfect Gender-Neutral Nursery

Creating the perfect nursery for your new little one is such a special time. However, if you don’t know your baby’s gender yet or want the room to work well for multiple kiddos, it can be tough to decide how to decorate it. That’s the beauty of a gender-neutral nursery! Here are a few tips to help you create the perfect space.

Choose a Color Palette or Theme

Choosing a color palette or theme will make it much easier to design a cohesive room. Here are some great options.

Color Palettes

If you’d prefer neutrals, then grays, beiges, blacks, or whites are good options. Yellow is a lovely, sunny color, sure to create a joyful nursery. Teal or navy are great choices if you’d like the soothing benefits of blue, and they don’t make the space too boyish. Finally, just about any shade of green, from sage to mint, will look precious in your new baby’s nursery.


Some adorable theme options include woodland creatures, space, succulents, carnival, jungle, or travel. You can also theme the nursery around your favorite book or movie—Star Wars, Studio Ghibli films, Harry Potter, or Lord of the Rings are all sweet ideas.

Pick Neutral Furniture

Choose neutral colors for your baby’s large furniture items, such as their crib, rocker, changing table, and dresser. This will create a great base for your little one’s room and make it much easier on you if you decide to redo the room later on. White, gray, black, or natural wood furniture are all excellent choices.

Add the Small Details

Now that you have the large items, it’s time for the fun part! Add wall art, throw pillows, and rugs to pull the room’s design together. Baby bedding, stuffies, and gender-neutral baby blankets add soft, cozy details. Don’t forget to add shelves and bins for storing toys and baby books, and you’re well on your way to creating the perfect gender-neutral nursery for your little one!
