Neutral Nursery Ideas

My kiddos are no longer in the infant/toddler stage of life, but today I thought I'd share some tips on how to change up their rooms a bit to fit their preferences and needs as they get older. When I'm thinking about a space, I try to envision what will be appropriate for the next few years so that it doesn't all have to be changed. Of course, it's always fun to add a few things here and there!

The Bed: When my kids grew out of their crib, I took the sides off this vintage crib that I had in storage and it became a day bed that they slept in until they were old enough for a big bed. This was a great solution for us! It was low to the ground and wasn't too big for them.

Rugs: A fun rug can make such a big difference in a space, including a nursery. You can change the color scheme or use a rug that is more suitable for an older child as they grow.

Display Shelves: As kids get older, they create more things that they like to display and become more aware of what they like. It's fun to have a set of shelves to put their special creations on.

Storage Baskets: I don't know about you, but my kids always seem to have a million little blankets and stuffed animals that they loved. Instead of tossing them, I kept them in cute baskets like the photo above.

Wallpaper: Graphic wallpaper is all the rage right now, and I am in love! Be sure to choose something that isn't too baby-ish so that it grows with your child.

.
Seating: A rocker is of course a necessity with infants, but think outside of the box for seating for the kiddos as they grow. This hanging swing chair is perfect!

.
Artwork & Accessories: This is an easy way to change up a room and add pops of color and whimsy. It can show off the child's personality and interests, and you can incorporate their favorite colors and animals.
