Assembly For Your Nursery
NURSERY DESIGN IDEAS
One of the best parts of preparing for a new bundle of joy is designing and furnishing their nursery. This is especially fun when you have so many amazing IKEA pieces to choose from and iFurniture to do all the tenuous assembly. IKEA has you covered from cribs to toy storage and everything in between.
MAKING THE MOST OF A SMALL SPACE
When space is limited, it’s a good idea to take advantage of pieces that have more than one use. The Stuvia crib has drawers built into the bottom of it to provide extra storage in an otherwise unused space. You can also choose between quite a few color choices for the drawers, so you are sure to find a color to match your nursery theme. A changing table is something that most people would probably decide against when trying to save space, especially since most babies end up being changed on the carpet or couch. That being said, if you have your heart set on a changing station, the 2-drawer Busunge chest can easily be used as diaper storage and a changing table just by adding an IKEA changing pad to the top. Making use of wall space is another space saving option, and the Flisat doll house shaped wall shelf is not only practical, but a really cute and unique piece.
BRING A BLANK SPACE TO LIFE WITH SOME COLOR
If you are unable to paint your new baby’s soon-to-be bedroom, adding colorful pieces is a great way to breath some life into a plain room. The Gonatt crib is white, but it has a red, yellow and blue knob on the drawers built in under it, adding a little pop of color. If you want more of a splash of color, the Trofast storage combinations are perfect for toy or clothing storage, come in multiple sizes there are tons of bin colors to choose from. Another fun piece is the IKEA multicolored Krokig clothes stand. The colors actually match the Gonatt crib and the design makes accessing hats or coats very easy.
PLANNING AHEAD WITH A BABY AND TODDLER FRIENDLY DESIGN
Babies grow up so quickly, and before we know it, they are very mobile and playful toddlers. It makes sense to choose pieces that will work in a newborn nursery as well as in a little kid’s room. Cribs are generally a big purchase, and you can save yourself and your pocketbook some hassle by choosing a convertible crib, like the Sundvik crib that converts into a toddler bed. A great changing table will be extremely useful when your new baby arrives, but most are used for up to a year. The Gulliver changing table is designed in a way that makes it possible to be used as a book case or storage shelf long after your little one is in diapers. Most little ones only have a few toys they play with regularly, but the Flisat toy storage bin with castors is beyond adorable and will look amazing in both a nursery or child’s room. It has wheels and a little handle, which means your little one will be pushing it around as they learn how to use their legs.
Getting ready for baby is stressful enough without having to worry about assembling all your new furniture. Put your feet up and let iFurniture take on the task for you. Your back will thank you.
