The Ideal Furniture Sets For Your Nursery
If you’ve just become a parent or are soon to be parents, you’ll be starting to set up your little one’s nursery furniture - an exciting thing to do to get ready for your new arrival!
Planning and researching before you make your order is important, whether you find your nursery set through a blog like this or through social media. We’ve written this guide to help you figure out the essentials you need for your nursery.
What basic items do I need?
Your budget does play a massive part in what you will want to buy for your nursery. However, here are a few things you’ll want to consider buying for your nursery.
Cot - this is probably the most important item that you’re going to need for your baby's nursery - they’ll be sleeping in it for many months, if not years to come!
This isn’t something that you’ll need straight away, however, if you want to get your nursery ready and in order then it’s something that you might want to consider whilst you’re looking at other pieces of furniture too. The cot tends to be the first big purchase, the centre-piece that everything then follows around after that. It's a piece of nursery furniture that is also versatile and often can convert into a toddler bed in time. Consider whether you want a bedside crib or one that replaces a moses basket in your child's bedroom.
Drawers - If you struggle for storage, then a dresser would be ideal for all the drawer space that comes with it. Whether you want to store clothes, toys, nappies or anything else baby related in it, they’re great for ultimate storage space without taking up too much space in their nursery. You can also double up your dresser as a changing table too by securing a changing topper to the top - however, our drawer units already come with a built-in changing area on top.
Wardrobe - If you find that there isn’t quite enough space in your nursery drawers for all of the baby’s clothes and other little bits, then you can also opt to add a wardrobe too. Wardrobes are available in all different colours and styles nowadays to suit today’s modern nursery so you’ll never have to worry about nothing matching ever again!
Changing Table - Another essential item you’ll need from day one is a changing table. This is another piece of furniture that may take up more room in your nursery, so choosing a 2-in-1 drawer set with a changing table is going to be ideal to help you utilise your space in the best possible way.
2-Piece Furniture Sets
Our range of 2-piece Furniture Sets include some of the essential nursery items that you’re going to need for your new arrival - the cot and changing table drawers. Here are a few nursery furniture sets that we would recommend for their high-quality build and versatility.
The Maya range is inspired by Scandinavian design, featuring a clean-cut, two-tone finish, perfect for creating a modern and stylish nursery for your newborn. Suitable from birth and seeing your little one through their growth, this nursery furniture set will stand the test of time.
When your little one is ready to begin their transition and is ready for their ‘big bed’, the safety rails can simply be removed to create a stylish toddler bed. The included changing unit drawers are great for enabling you to put away and quickly locate your little’s ones' belongings with ease.
Once you no longer require the changing feature on top of the drawer set, this can be removed to create a flat-top chest of drawers that can be used for many years to come.
