Essential Baby Nursery Furniture Checklist
Selecting furniture for your baby’s new room is fun and exciting. If you are a do-it-yourselfer, you should get some unfinished pieces and finish them exactly as you want by painting, making templates, adding stickers, and special buttons. You can also buy ready-to-use furniture. Even if you’re tempted to go shopping, it’s best to make a list of the most important furniture in the children’s room that you can’t do without.
One of the most important things to consider when choosing your children’s furniture is the expected lifespan of the furniture. You may want to use some furniture for several years. In this case, choose something that will grow with your baby. Daycare furniture may look good with a baby theme, but it may not look good in a daycare setting. The following information will help you choose the most important furniture for a daycare center:
The baby’s bed could be the most important piece of furniture in the child’s room. Your baby will spend most of the first year in daycare. A crib can cost from a few hundred dollars to over a thousand dollars. If you are on a tight budget, you should think about a standard baby bed. On the other hand, if you have a few more dollars, convertible cots offer good value for money. A convertible crib can be converted into a toddler bed, a day bed, or a full-size bed when your baby grows up.
You may also prefer a small baby bed such as a crib, bassinet, or Moses basket. Whichever cot you choose, make sure it is safe and durable.
Changing babies’ diapers can be very tiring. The baby also needs to be bathed, dried, hair brushed, nails cut, etc. With a changing table, you can do all this comfortably. Choose a table that is just above your hips and look for a table with drawers where you can store the baby’s diapers and clothes.
For the storage of the baby’s used equipment, a basket is needed to change the baby. The baby’s clothes should be washed separately from the rest of the family’s clothes. If space is limited, you can use a laundry bag that hangs behind the door of the nursery.
A bedside table or night cabinet is a very practical piece of furniture for the children’s room. You can put a children’s bedroom lamp and a night light on it. You can store the baby’s feeding items in drawers and organize them for night feeding.
