8 Unisex Nursery Ideas That Will Add The Wow Factor To The Nursery

Many couples find it quite stressful to design a nursery for their baby and there is no doubt about the fact that this is one challenging job. I felt the same when we had to design a nursery for our little one. There are times when you want to design a nursery that is more of a neutral theme. The reason is that it is more practical and is a cost friendly option too when you just cannot afford to spend a lot. Well I came up with a few ideas that can prove to be quite practical in designing a unisex nursery. I will like to present them so that others can benefit as well.

Perfect Unisex nursery ideas

Well you will surely enjoy trying out the presented ideas and setting up the unisex nursery will be a lot of fun.

1# Play with different colours:

You do not always have to stick with one single colour for a unisex nursery. You can just play with different combinations and design a colourful looking nursery. For example, you can break the barrier of traditional colours and you can have a red rug in the nursery. You can have a table and chair set as well apart from the traditional furniture that is generally present in the nursery. You can opt for a white table and you can complement the table by getting green coloured chairs. This combination will highlight every colour in the room.

2# Focusing on single element décor:

You can even focus on making one element more prominent in the nursery. For example, you can focus on the décor of the changing table.  You just have to customize the changing table in a way that it works well for both a boy and a girl. For example, you can have a neutral tone basket for keeping the accessories of your little one. You can put some extra bedding on the changing table.

You can also have various patterns in a nursery. This gives a modern touch to the nursery. Go for an emerald and grey combo when you are choosing the colour theme. Grey may sound like a dull colour, but the emerald will complement the grey and add prominence to each and every item in the room. Make sure that the curtains and the rug go with the theme.
