Have a little one on the way? For most expecting parents, that means a real need for nursery furniture. But if you’re not sure where to start, we’re here to help. From the perfect crib to a cozy glider, CITY Furniture has the checklist for all the baby nursery furniture you need.
Nursery furniture sets: You can make life easy by shopping for baby furniture sets, instead of outfitting the nursery piece by piece. Sets will typically include the crib, dresser, and changing table top. The matching pieces will also keep your look cohesive, offering style and function in one easy shopping trip.
Transitional cribs: The crib is the key part of baby bedroom sets, and we suggest one finding one that includes a convertible feature. This means the crib comes with a conversion kit that allows the crib to transition into a toddler bed, daybed, and full bed. This will save you money down the road when your baby is ready to move into a big kid bed.
Multi-functional pieces: Since most parents are operating on no sleep, anything that makes life easy should be a welcome relief. This same rule applies to furniture, so go with pieces like a dresser that doubles as a changing table, which is often included in baby nursery furniture sets.
Glider chairs: This will get almost as much use as the crib! A glider offers a comfy spot for those round-the-clock feedings, as well as a place to cozy up during bedtime stories. And the beauty of a glider is that it rocks back and forth as well as front to back, so you can gently swivel and sway baby to sleep.
Nursery storage: Make room for baby and all the diapers, wipes, clothes, toys, and supplies that come with it. This means adding storage to the nursery. We like the idea of baskets and bookshelves, which offer easy access when your hands are full.
