Buying nursery furniture is as difficult as buying furniture for the rest of the house. Parents to be or first-time parents do a great deal of research about nursery furniture and bring home the best for their little bundle of joy. However, not many of them pay the right amount of attention when buying a wardrobe.
The most common mistake they commit is that they bring home a wardrobe that would work fine only in those baby years and would become useless when their little one would grow into a toddler. Nursery wardrobes are usually shorter than the standard ones and are not great for long-term use. So, a wardrobe should be of a size that it stays with the baby when he/she grows into a young child.
Rather than buying one in a whim, read down the steps to find the perfect wardrobe for your little one.
Colour – The first step is obviously deciding the colour of the wardrobe. Know if you wish to have a single colour wardrobe in your little one’s room or a multi-coloured one. However, buying a single colour wardrobe would prove both beneficial and practical in the long, as it would go easily with bedding of any colour. The constraint with a coloured wardrobe is that if in future you plan to change the theme of your little one’s room, it would become challenging. If you are planning to buy a wardrobe online, you will be bombarded with a plethora of designs and colours to choose from.
Budget – Always, always, always frame a budget before buying a wardrobe online or from the market. If you have a plan to replace it after a few years, invest in something cheap. On the other hand, if you want something that would last for yours, invest well. There are a plenty of wardrobe designs in the market, so look around before buying one.
Material – Material plays a very important role in determining the age and appearance of a wardrobe. Wardrobes come in a variety of material including wood (all kinds), plastic, acrylic and even fabric (foldable wardrobe). So, choose the material that falls under your budget and solves your purpose.
Style – Always choose a wardrobe design that goes with the rest of the décor. For example, if you live in a cottage style home, a wardrobe in white with a glossy finish would look out of place, but an antique looking wooden wardrobe would settle in with the décor easily.
