1. Pick a Cool Crib

The centerpiece of the room and where baby will be spending a lot of time snoozing, the crib will be the most used items in your nursery.

This convertible cot provides a piece that’s timeless in design and sturdy enough to last throughout your child's baby and toddler years.

The cot's design fits seamlessly into any nursery and being 3-in-1, the cot grows with your child, transforming from cot to toddler bed and then to sofa bed making it a fantastic long term investment. The cot’s sides are fixed with an adjustable base, suiting every stage of your child's growth.

5. Create a Comfy Area for Parents

In the baby’s first year at home, mums and dads tend to spend a lot of time in the nursery, whether it’s getting them to sleep or watching over them. Encourage nap time for both baby and parents by incorporating seating like the Incy x Hobbe rocking chair. A clean silhouette and squared sofa shape, this chair is a departure from the traditional wingback nursing chair commonly associated with nursery rooms. With its gentle rock and tall supportive back, the chair radiates a 'low-profiled' glamour.
