Shopping Guide: Furnishings For Your Gender-Neutral Nursery

Gone are the days when parents go all out in decorating their nursery with the gender of the baby in mind. These days, regardless if it's a boy or a girl, nurseries tend to be more of a gender-neutral space. From being too traditional, the focus has already been on the design and functionality rather than the colour schemes.

Shopping for the nursery? We've got suggestions!

It is equipped with an adjustable bottom so that you can change the bed from being a cot to a junior bed. Also, the material used is birch, which has been treated with an anti-bacterial, non-toxic wood paint to ensure your child’s safety.
