30 Best Dreamy & Inspiring Gender Neutral Twin Nursery Ideas

Inside: 30 gorgeous gender-neutral twin nursery ideas to inspire you as you prepare for little bundles of joy

Twins! Congratulations! And if you’re a little apprehensive about what lies ahead, I get you.  

I was more than a little terrified when two heartbeats popped up on the scan… (And I remained that way for much of my pregnancy!)

But our twins are now the grand age of 2.5. I often wonder how we got here so quickly and relatively unscathed… They may be double trouble, but twins are without double more than double the love and I can’t imagine life any other way… 

So let’s start with the fun things: designing and decorating the nursery for your little bundles of joy.

Whether you’re expecting fraternal or identical twins, ditch the blue accents for boys and pink for girls cliché. Instead, create a haven that celebrates individuality and welcomes your twins with open arms with one of these stunning gender-neutral twin nursery ideas.

Twin Nursery Layout Ideas

Designing a twin nursery requires careful planning to optimize space, functionality, and aesthetics.  You may have a single dresser and changing table, but you’re almost certainly going to have 2 separate cots. 

(Crib sharing isn’t recommended beyond a certain age – read these sleep safety guidelines for twins from the Lullaby Trust.)

I found figuring out the crib placement in my twins’ nursery the hardest part. There was a lot of shuffling of furniture before I finally decided on the winning twin nursery layout!

Of course, the size and shape of the room plus window and door placement will have an impact. Hopefully, these twin nursery layout ideas will help.

Diaper Changing Made Central

A crib either side of the change table works really well, both from a practical point of view as well as aesthetics.  I love the symmetry this creates, while the wall behind can be easily dressed up with wallpaper, shelves or artwork.

Look how this lake and mountain-scape wallpaper creates a focal point in the room and the perfect backdrop to simple white wooden furniture.

The central location of the changing station will make middle of the night diaper changes convenient for both twins.  The draw storage beneath for baby clothes, wipes, lotions and more is a further bonus.

This is the exact layout I used for my boy girl twin baby room and it continues to work now my twins are toddlers – they cannot reach out and touch each other (or annoy each other too much!)

Twin Train Carriage Layout

The stunning minimalistic gender-neutral twin nursery above maximizes floor space by lining the cribs up against the feature wall like train carriages.

Again, this creates very pleasing symmetry but once your twins are moving around and pulling up, the close proximity will encourage play over sleep.

This is a lovely layout common to many twin nurseries but works better when the babies are small. I imagine the above nursery will have a shift around before the end of the first year.

L-Shaped Twin Crib Layout

An L-shape is third option when it comes to your twin nursery layout.  Great for small nurseries or simply for maximizing floor space and creating a cozy sleeping quarter.

Your twins will be able to interact and play together in this arrangement in time so if you want to keep disturbances to a minimum you’ll probably want to rearrange this at some point.

Designated Play Area

Twin nursery layout tip: Turn a corner of your nursery into a mini play haven.

Throw down a fluffy rug for your twins to crawl and roll around in safety. Add some low shelves or cubbies for easy access to toys, books, and snuggly friends.

As your twins grow, a tiny table and chairs will be perfect for future arts and crafts sessions. This play area keeps things fun and organized and leaves plenty of space for sweet dreams.

When your twins are tiny and unable to move around too much, placing the cribs side by side is a lovely twin nursery idea for both baby boys and girls.  They’ll be able to sense each others presence when dark which can be a great comfort.

A little about me

Mom of 4 kids, baby sleep expert plus home organisation and kids activities and crafts

Hi, I'm Sarah

Mom of four outrageously gorgeous Littles.  Yup, four!  The twins are now two and that title still brings me out in a cold sweat… Yet I’m just as determined to give them the best without losing my mind.  I reckon it’s possible!  Most days.  

I love a challenge and have to find out they ‘why’, ‘what’ or ‘how to’  –  there are rather a lot of these when it comes to kids… 

I also love, love, love things to be neat and tidy and just so.   The Littles normally have other ideas!
