Nursery furniture – our pick of the best

10 images

Planning a nursery scheme is one of the most exciting decorating projects you’ll ever undertake, so it’s important to find the perfect nursery furniture for a children’s room. A nursery furniture set keeps things nice and easy and is often a good money-saving option. But mixing and matching baby furniture is lots of fun, too, and gives you the chance to inject your own personal style into your nursery design.

A few nursery furniture essentials to add to your shopping list are a comfortable nursing chair, a sturdy changing table (ideally with shelves or drawers to keep baby wipes and nappies in easy reach) and, of course, a good crib, cot or Moses basket. You’ll also need plenty of toy storage and a children’s wardrobe or chest of drawers for all those adorable baby outfits. Make sure you choose well-made pieces of furniture that are as practical as they are pretty, and comply to UK safety regulations – that way you know your little one can sleep safe and sound in their new nursery.
