Here at Mom’s Bunk House, we talk a lot about furniture for kids – and we’re usually talking about school-aged children. However, we also carry a great selection of nursery furniture, and we know that for many new parents, furnishing a bedroom for your new baby can be a challenge.
Unlike an older child, an infant won’t have any furniture preferences! However, as a parent, you know that you have to provide furniture that is safe, comfortable, and high-quality. You probably also want to try making your nursery as attractive and nicely designed as possible.
If you’re a new parent looking to get started with nursery design, furnishing, and decor, Mom’s Bunk House can help! We’ve taken off our “bunk bed” hat and slipped into baby mode!
See below 3 nursery furniture basics that should help you get started…
Crib and bedding accessories.
This will probably be your first step and is generally going to be the most important baby furniture purchase you make. The key thing to consider here is safety – crib safety standards change often, and there are many concerns to avoid. This is one purchase that you definitely don’t want to buy on the low end! Be sure to do your research and choose a crib that’s as safe as possible. You also want to shop for bedding for your new baby – you’ll probably need plenty of extras!
This important piece of baby furniture will definitely be convenient! You’ll be saving yourself constantly bending over, as well as helping to stay organized during a time that can be hectic. Changing tables can sometimes be surprisingly expensive – this ie one item that might make sense to shop around for. Just make sure to consider safety. Usually, you’ll want to find a changing table that includes a lip to prevent your baby from rolling off.
A glider or rocker.
These gliding and rocking chairs are a great way for mom and baby to relax together. This is a great furniture addition for any family with a baby that might be fussy or having a hard time sleeping.
We hope these tips will help you assemble a great room for your baby! There are lots of other items to consider as well, but if you have these 3 items, you’ll be off to a great start!
