Design Tips for Your Gender-Neutral Nursery

Designing the perfect nursery requires patience, creativity, and a little ingenuity. Here are several tips to ensure that your nursery is a gender-neutral haven for your baby:

Start with a Neutral Color Scheme or Theme

Neutral tones such as creams, grays, and beiges offer a timeless foundation for your nursery design. From the Kaleidoscope collection’s solid basics to the more intricately patterned Ezra and Kendi themes, Crane Baby provides a wealth of options for setting this serene baseline.

Get Multifunctional Nursery Furniture

Invest in furniture that serves multiple purposes and transitions as your child grows. A crib that converts to a toddler bed or a changing table with removable trays can adapt to your child’s needs over time.

Incorporate Texture & Patterns

Adding texture and patterns brings depth and interest to your nursery design. Crane Baby’s collections offer plenty of options for incorporating these elements into your gender-neutral space. Think cozy throw blankets, knit pillows, embroidered blankets, and more.

Focus on One Area of the Nursery at a Time

Rather than feeling overwhelmed by the entire room, concentrate on designing one section at a time. Perhaps begin with the sleeping area, selecting pieces from the Willow nature-themed collection for a calming bedtime ambiance.  Then, move on to the play area, adding fun elements from the Avery bunny or Ezra woodland collections. This approach will help you create a cohesive and balanced design.

Make Eco-Friendly Choices Where Applicable

Sustainability matters, even in nursery design. The Avery Collection and other Crane Baby collections feature items made with environmentally friendly materials, ensuring your design choices are also ethical ones.

Add Personalized Touches

Customize the space with monogrammed blankets, a hand-painted mural, or a display of baby’s first keepsakes. These touches make the nursery distinctly theirs.

Keep Their Safety and Comfort in Mind

Above all, ensure that every product and piece of furniture meets safety standards and is comfortable for your baby. Plush bedding from any of Crane Baby’s collections, which are as cozy as they are beautiful, will help your baby slumber safely and soundly.

Crane Baby’s collections combine functionality with a soothing aesthetic to create harmonious gender-neutral nurseries. With a variety of themes, mix and match ability, and design tips, Crane Baby makes it easy to create the perfect space for your little one.
