Traditional pink and blue rooms for girls and boys are becoming less popular and a current trend is to have gender neutral bedrooms. Bedrooms that have colours to appeal to both genders increase individuality and with children’s minds and tastes often changing, it’s the best way to keep your child happy for longer! Here are some top decorating tips for creating a gender-neutral bedroom for your little ones and tweens...

Primary colours

Choosing one or two primary colours to decorate a bedroom will help you achieve a gender-neutral space. Picking colours such as red and blue, you’re able to give the room a nautical feel, or going for yellow and orange shades you can start creating a safari themed room. Our Great Escape bed in white would work as a great centre-piece for a colourful bedroom.

Storytime

Does your little one have a favourite book? If the colour of your child’s bedroom is neutral, framing some illustrations from their favourite book is a great way to add a personal touch. Whether this is Alice in Wonderland or The Gruffalo, books never have to be gender specific.

Pick a theme

The great thing about decorating a gender-neutral bedroom is that themes don’t have to be limited and can range from animals and superheroes to monochrome and sea life. Choose neutral coloured furniture  and create a theme around it by incorporating themed accessories, such a cushions and duvet sets.

Furniture for the future
