Get your child's room started right with a beautiful matching set of nursery furniture.
Gone are the days when parents bedded new babies in the spare dresser drawer. Modern nursery furniture is functional, well-made, and as beautiful as any other furniture in your home.
The checklist for the well-appointed nursery includes a crib, a nursery glider with nursery stool, changing table, armoire, nightstands, bookcase, and chest for toy storage. Investing in quality pieces creates a coordinated, finished look that grows with your child.
A lot of parent/child bonding will happen in this chair, so it should be the cushiest, most pleasing one you can find. Choose a nursery glider that may eventually be kept for story time in the family room or parent's bedroom.
A matching ottoman or nursery footstool enhances Mom's comfort and relaxation while she and baby snuggle in the glider.
The crib is a nursery's centerpiece. Today's styles can complement any home decor from traditional to whimsical to clean-lined simplicity. As a bonus, many cribs are designed to grow with your child as they graduate to "big kid" beds.
While not the most glamorous piece in the room, a sturdy, comfortable changing table with adequate storage is an absolute necessity in your nursery. Everything is within easy reach for those inevitable late-night changes.
Even tiny babies can quickly accumulate a wardrobe that any adult would envy. A nursery armoire supplements closet storage and also holds cute toys and bedclothes. This practical investment piece will keep pulling its weight for years.
A place for everything and everything in its place is the mantra of an organized room. Nurseries are no exception. Choose coordinated pieces to avoid a "hodge-podge" look.
Bookcases, nightstands, and toy boxes help keep clutter at bay as your child - and collections of toys and clothes - grows. These supremely functional pieces add personality to your nursery. Personalized toy chests are a great gift, as well.
Bringing it All Together
When outfitting your baby's nursery, a crib, changing table, armoire, and nursery glider are absolutely de rigueur. Multipurpose accessories such as bookcases, nursery stools, nightstands, and toy storage finish the room so it's both a joy to use and a pleasure look at.
