Wood You Believe It? How Matching Tones Can Transform Your Nursery

Using hardwoods like maple, hickory, and walnut on shelving and name signs in a nursery can bring a cohesive, polished look to the room. These hardwood options not only add warmth and depth to the space, but they also offer a variety of colours and finishes to suit different design styles.

For a natural, rustic look, hickory may be the perfect choice with its deep brown tones and distinctive grain pattern. Walnut, with its rich chocolate hue, can add a sophisticated touch to the room. Alternatively, maple offers a lighter wood tone and a range of finishes, from a pale blonde to a darker amber.

Incorporating hardwood shelving is a great way to add storage and display space to the nursery, and using matching wood tones helps to tie everything together. For example, if you have a set of wooden floating shelves in a hickory finish, consider using a hickory name sign above the crib to create a cohesive look.

Details like the knobs on the dresser or handles on the closet doors can also be an opportunity to introduce hardwood tones to the room. These small touches can make a big impact on the overall look and feel of the space.

When selecting a finish for your hardwood accents, consider a matte finish for a more understated, natural look or a glossy finish for a modern touch. Maple, hickory, and walnut each offer a range of finishes to choose from, so you can find the perfect match for your nursery’s design.
