Types of Nursery Furniture

Types of Nursery Furniture

The three main types of nursery furniture are changing tables, cribs, and toy chests. Here's what you need to know about these basic pieces.

Changing Tables

For a chore that occurs frequently and takes up a good bit of time—at least initially—in your life with your child, there is a changing table to meet every need. These furniture pieces incorporate a pad to rest the baby on, as well as storage for diapers, wipes, and various ointments. Some changing tables are basic wood frames with open, accessible shelves. Others are more elaborate dressers with open as well as closed storage, elegant furniture details, and thoughtful features. Some look like dressers and have removable pads so they can convert to standard storage as your child matures.

Cribs

You may choose a cradle, co-sleeper, or bassinet for a young infant, but eventually you'll need a sleeping spot that can keep the child safe and contained as she ages. A crib with a mattress and high rails will do that. Because the safety requirements and standards update frequently, don't be tempted to use a vintage or hand-me-down crib. It's best to shop for a new crib from a reputable retailer that has the approval seal of the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

As you shop, keep these things in mind.

Changing Tables

The size of your nursery is a big factor in shopping for and using a changing table. In tight spaces, you might want a dresser and changing table combination piece, or a simple wall-mount changing station. Or if you have plenty of space, you might want a dedicated changing table separate from clothing storage. Next, consider your storage preferences. You'll have to keep diapers, wipes, ointments, and additional clothing on or near the piece. Do you want to store large supplies here, or will you keep just a few diapers at a time? Are there any medical supplies or equipment you'll need to have handy? If so, you may want additional surface area on the top of the changing table.

Cribs

After safety and accreditation, style is a big factor when choosing a crib. Wood tones tend to look more masculine and white looks more feminine, but the bedding makes all the difference. Some cribs convert to toddler beds, which can be a nice transition from a crib to a big bed for some children. Whatever style you buy, be sure to register the crib with the manufacturer so you can be apprised of any safety updates or concerns.

Toy Chests

All toy chests for children's rooms should have safety hinges, which prevent the lid from closing on a child's fingers.

Helpful Extras

Other furniture pieces that are common in a nursery include a glider or rocker, a bookshelf, a straightforward dresser that is not a diapering spot, and an armoire.
