Our Best Nursery Furniture: Dressers, Bookcases, and More!

Everyone knows expecting a new baby is an exciting time. However, it can also be a stressful time, especially if you are a first-time parent. There is so much you have to get ready to prepare for welcoming your baby into the world. From preparing for an abnormal sleep schedule to getting your nursery furniture picked out, there is a lot to handle. We can’t help you with the first one, but we can help you with your furniture! Here are our furniture suggestions for your little one’s room.

1. The Carolina Nightstand

What most people will tell you is that kids require a lot of storage. Even if you plan on not letting your kids’ belongings get out of hand, they usually will. This is why our Carolina Nightstand is the perfect nightstand for a nursery. With one spacious drawer and a cabinet, you will have plenty of space for the middle-of-the-night essentials. It is perfect for next to a rocking chair, as you can keep a book or magazine in it for when you are feeding your baby. Or, you can keep extra bibs and wipes in it to clean up any messes. You can see this stunning nightstand below.

2. The Coleman Bookcase

Our Coleman Bookcase is the perfect nursery bookshelf. As shown below, you can put little storage baskets in it to hold your baby’s belongings such as diapers, wipes, and even toys. It is also perfect for storing your child’s books for reading bedtime stories. The ‘X’ on the back of the bookcase gives it a modern and light feel for your child’s room. Not to mention, we design all of our pieces so they can be passed down to future generations, so you can keep this bookcase in your child’s room and pass it down to them when they get a house of their own.

When you get a bookcase for your baby’s nursery, it should be made of quality materials. As you know, toddlers and young children love to climb things. With cheaper materials, the furniture can break or fall over. This is why many manufacturers suggest screwing your taller furniture into the wall. With the Coleman Bookcase, it is made of solid wood and raw steel. This means it is durable and very heavy. However, if you do want to attach it to the wall for added security, you can do so by putting a few nails against the ‘X’ shape in the back, rather than putting a hole through it. As the nail rests on the raw steel, there will be no damage, but it should keep it in place when done so properly.

3. The Denton Wardrobe

If you are looking for a nursery dresser, the Denton Wardrobe is the perfect solution for you. This piece comes with five drawers that fit baby clothing perfectly. Additionally, it comes with shelves so you can store toys, equipment, or anything else you don’t want out. This piece is very charming, and it can be used for a wide variety of purposes later on once you don’t need it for a nursery.

Perhaps the best part about this dresser is that it is completely customizable. We give our customers the option to change the dimensions of their pieces, so that way they fit their needs perfectly. With that being said, you can choose how deep and tall the drawers are to ensure you can fit all of your baby’s items. Additionally, you can change the hardware and stain for the dresser to ensure it suits your nursery’s theme beautifully.
