Gray is the New Pastel

Let’s start off this list with the most basic thing people generally think about when the word ‘nursery’ comes to mind.

Color. Or in this case, it would be better to say ‘neutral.’ Gray is the new pastel. This is the perfect neutral to use if you and your significant other choose to keep your baby’s gender a surprise.

Gray is an easy-to-match neutral, and it comes in different shades that are more than compatible with simple mixing and matching. It works with any bold accent shade making it modern but classic. And of course, for variety’s sake, layer different shades and patterns of gray.


Find Your ‘It’ Crib

Of course, the next item on the list would be a crib. It’s one of the first things you think about when you remember babies and how they sleep. But when we talk about finding the ‘it’ crib, we don’t necessarily mean the classic rectangular wooden crib.

If you’re up for it, find fully functional cribs with unique shapes and designs.

Storage Spaces are a Must

Think ahead and have plenty of storage spaces available in the nursery. It doesn’t have to be boring old shelves either. There are plenty of fun and creative ways to customize a storage space.

Add a Comfy Adults’ Area

Baby occupies the room for the majority of the time, and for the first few months of their lives, they’ll be depending heavily on adults. Thus, parents will be found in the nursery room often too. Incorporate comfortable seating, like a loveseat or some armchairs. A daybed would be a wonderful idea too. It encourages nap time for mom and dad, both.
