If you’re preparing to bring a baby home for the first time, you’ve probably already put lots of time and effort into getting the nursery together. As the first place your baby will call ‘home’, it’s important that the nursery be comfortable and attractive. And no piece of furniture is more important than the crib. Although a black crib may seem like an odd choice for your bundle of joy, it can actually be the perfect one. If you’re trying to create a gender neutral space, you’ve likely considered what colors you want to use, and which ones you’d like to stay away from. No color presents a better option than black. Not only is black a gender neutral color, but it’s also absolutely timeless. On top of that, black has a calming and relaxing appeal. Putting too many bright colors throughout your nursery can cause your baby to be over stimulated. A black crib will give your nursery a nice sleek look that will be appealing and calming. Plus, as we all know, black goes with almost anything. This means that no matter which other colors you’d like to include, there’s a pretty good chance a black crib will still be able to blend in.
