Where to Buy Nursery Furniture for Every Budget
September 19, 2021
Creating a nursery is a big part of preparing for baby’s arrival. Whether you have a spare room to work with or are converting a corner of your bedroom into a zen sleep space for baby, you’ll be spending a lot of time here, so it’s important to get it right.
If you don’t have a clear vision, head online to discover the latest nursery trends. Once you’ve found some inspiration, devise a budget, take some measurements and make a list of items you’ll need to equip and decorate baby’s room. Source key pieces of furniture—like a crib and a comfortable chair—first as these tend to be investment pieces that will set the tone. For a coordinated look, opt for a whole nursery furniture set. If your style is more eclectic, mix-and-match items from different brands and retailers. Once you’ve bought the basics, add finishing touches like a crib mobile and other decorative accents.
