Baby Nursery Furniture
Nursery Baby Furniture
Your family is expanding, and you need to start planning the nursery for the little one. The choices may seem daunting at first, but if you take it a step a time, it’s not that hard. If this is your first, a lot of things will be taken care of by family and friends at a baby shower, but they will probably want your input.
Baby Furniture Sets
The variety of baby furniture is as large as adult furniture. You have your choice of many styles, wood stain color or painted, and new or used. While buying used furniture is frugal, be sure that the furniture still meets safety standards and check for any old recalls that may have been missed by the previous owner. Most used furniture is in very good shape, and is well worth the savings. There are three basic types of beds for newborns, cradles, cribs and co-sleepers:
Cradles are usually recommended for newborns, as it’s easier to keep near the parents’ bed, if there is room. It’s also more comforting for the newborn. However, the newborn outgrows the cradle fairly quickly.

Cribs are an investment, but by shopping wisely, that investment will pay off in the long run. Many of the cribs today are convertible, so they can be reconfigured into a day bed, toddler bed, and eventually a twin bed, by simply adding supports and the larger mattress.
Co-sleepers are becoming more popular as many families enjoy the closeness of a “family bed”, but don’t actually want the child in their bed full-time. They are an attachable mini-bed on the side of the parents’ bed. They allow the baby to be within arms reach for nighttime nursing, but still have separate sleeping areas. Many people prefer this to actually having the infant in bed with them, for safety reasons as well as a less traumatic transition later, when they feel it’s time for the “big kid” bed.
Dressers are another important feature in a nursery. Most cribs have matching dresser sets, but it’s not necessary to have all of it match, as long as it coordinates nicely. Many dressers come with a changing table that can be placed on top, so the baby can still use the dresser as they grow.
Be sure that the dresser is a solid construction, and that it won’t tip over after the little one begins the climbing stage. Check that the knobs can not come off easily, as they can pose a choking hazard.
The bedding is one of the most fun parts of any nursery (not counting the baby). There are endless choices for the bedding (which usually consists of sheets, bumper, sheets, and comforters). There are many varieties of the traditional pinks and blues patterns, as well as gender-neutral designs for the parents-to-be who wish to be surprised. One of the recent trends in bedding is using bright primary colors, especially combinations of red, black and white. Studies have shown that these colors help the newborn’s eyesight focus quicker.
There are hundreds of licensed character bedding sets, with matching accessories to decorate the nursery quickly and easily. Many of these are designs that most children will continue to love as they grow older, making it easy to save money in decorating in the future.
You might want to consider using 3D design software to help you plan your new bedroom interior design. Many computer programs help you make a detailed plan of your bedroom remodel project, and you can try out various layouts to see how they might look. They have become very popular with the do it yourself crowd these days.
Decorating a nursery for a newborn can be a daunting task. Designers have created so many furniture sets that choosing just one can become a real headache. Fortunately it doesn’t have to be that difficult. With so many choices in baby furniture it is almost impossible not to find the right style. Having a good game plan and some general knowledge of baby furniture sets will make the choice an easy one.
For those people who decide on a new nursery for a newborn baby, there are early decisions to be made on decorating and fitting out the baby's room. Most of us want the nursery ready for the baby the day she is born, so that there are no last minute panics after the birth and when it is time to take the new arrival home. So weneed to get to work some months before the due date, bearing in mind she may well arrive one or two months early.
