Cute and Unique Storage Ideas for the Nursery

The last thing you want to be worrying about in your baby’s precious first year is storage.

By the time you’ve washed your millionth baby grow, you’ll be flinging clean washing into the nearest drawer or cupboard – and that’s if it even makes it up the stairs!

To ensure you’re as prepared as you can be, we’ve collected our best cute and unique storage ideas for your nursery to help bring an iota of calm to the chaos of parenthood.

1. Vox Canne Nursery Dresser

Add a touch of boho magic to your nursery with the Vox Canne Dresser.

Rattan cane webbing drawer fronts, gold handles and wooden legs combine to make this one seriously stylish piece of nursery storage furniture. Add the optional baby-changing top to make it even more useful.

(Miffy lamp optional, but certainly ups the cute factor!)

2. Vox Tuli Bookcase and Toy Storage

The Tuli Bookcase and Toy Storage Unit is an open shelving unit at the perfect height for little ones.

The three upper compartments come with included labels to help them (and you!) identify what goes where. If in doubt, chuck everything in the large bottom section and try again tomorrow – everything looks better in the morning!

Whether you choose the mint green or white finish, this pastel bookshelf will add a fresh feel to your nursery – mainly due to the lack of clutter on the floor!

3. Vox Vintage Tall Chest of Drawers

Vox Vintage Tall Chest of Drawers in a Choice of Oak or 5 Pastel Colours

With its stylish retro aesthetic and solid oak legs, the Vox Vintage Tall Chest of Drawers is here to shake up your expectations for nursery storage.

The drawer fronts come in a range of colours. Choose from white, oak, or four pretty pastel colours, to put your unique stamp on your baby’s room.

The five deep drawers offer plenty of space for bibs and baby grows, and each drawer features a push-open system for easy access when you’ve got a babe in arms!

4. Galipette Sacha Chest of Drawers

Galipette’s Sacha Chest of Drawers also features large, deep drawers with a soft-close mechanism to help prevent any accidents with tiny fingers!

This adaptable nursery storage solution can be converted into a baby changing unit using the optional changing top or a larger storage unit with the additional bookcase that fits behind (both shown in the image).

When your little one is potty trained, remove the changing top to leave a stylish chest of drawers that will last them throughout childhood.

5. Vox Spot Baby Changing Unit

This Vox Spot Baby Changing Unit is another cute, convertible piece of nursery storage we can’t stop cooing over!

The unique, tipi-shaped design not only looks great, but also offers a convenient hanging rail for outfits, mobiles or more storage organisers – perfect for keeping all your baby’s lotions and potions close to hand.

When your little one no longer needs you to change their nappy (hallelujah!), remove the changing top to leave a cool, Scandi-style dresser. Or, take off the lower drawer to create a stunning kid’s desk.

6. Galipette Lison 2 Drawer Chest

Galipette Lison 2 Drawer Chest

Can’t decide between a chest of drawers and a bookcase? You don’t have to!

The Galipette Lison 2 Drawer Chest features two large drawers and two open shelving compartments, so you can choose what to display and what to hide away.

The unique staggered design gives it a modern twist and makes it high enough to use as a changing unit if you add the optional baby changing top.

7. Vox Concept Chest of Drawers Grey and Pink

Add a pop of pink to your nursery with this Vox Concept Chest of Drawers.

This fun, bubble-gum dresser is perfect for adding warmth and interest to a Nordic nursery. Three drawers, a cupboard and an open shelf offer plenty of space to keep their bits and bobs organised and off the floor – a whole new ‘Concept’ with kids!

Not a fan of pink? Other colours, including blue, red and yellow, are also available, so there’s one for every nursery theme.

8. Galipette Celeste Convertible 5 in 1 Cot Bed

Galipette Celeste Convertible 5 in 1 Cot Bed

If you’re tight on space – or just want as much storage as possible! – you might like to consider a cot with built-in storage.

The incredible Celeste Convertible 5-in-1 Cot Bed is an excellent example of a baby bed that’s bursting with storage. There’s a chest of drawers, changing table, hanging rail and bench seat all packed into this multi-functional furniture piece.

Even better, with the optional conversion kit, the cot adapts as your child grows, changing into a junior bed with built-in storage and a kid’s desk too!

9. Galipette Sacha Convertible 3 in 1 Cot Bed

Galipette Sacha Convertible 3 in 1 Cot Bed

Galipette love creating cot beds bursting with storage!

Their Sacha Convertible 3-in-1 Cot Bed is packed with all the space you need for your bundle of joy. An attached unit has 3 drawers on one side and a hanging rail and cupboard on the other, topped with a baby changing top. The cot has open shelving on the other side and an optional trundle drawer to fit underneath.

As your little one grows up, you can adapt the cot into a toddler bed, 3-drawer chest, desk and bookcase – incredible!

Bear in mind that as both sides of the cot are in use, you will need to position them away from walls to maximise the storage on offer.

10. Galipette Sacha 3-Door Wardrobe

Finally, no round-up of cute nursery storage solutions would be complete without a wardrobe for hanging all those adorable tiny outfits.

The Galipette Sacha 3-Door Wardrobe comes in a pine white or country oak finish. Whichever look you choose, you’ll be treated to five internal storage compartments and two hanging rails, perfect for concealing their clothes, shoes and toys.

Thanks to the three doors, you only need to open the section you need – ideal if you’d rather not face the rest of the mess just yet!
