How to Create a Nursery with Plenty of Storage

Sometimes it can feel like your newborn has more belongings than you.

Plus, their room is usually the smallest bedroom – which only adds to the challenge of having enough storage.

However, having the right storage solution that can cover all of the ‘bits and bobs’ your baby needs can really simplify your life as a new parent. But where do you go to find these elusive must-haves? Hmmm…

At Cuckooland we bring you a wide selection of stunning cot beds and furniture brimming with storage potential where the toughest part is simply narrowing down your choice. Let’s take a look at the contenders and how to create the perfect Nursery:

1. ‘Three is the Magic Number’

Vox Maxim Cot Bed 3 Piece Nursery Set in White

‘Three is the magic number’ with this modern set of coordinating furniture.

You could buy these pieces separately – but why not simplify things by adding a cot bed, wardrobe and changing unit (with removable top) to your basket in ‘one go’.

The easy to clean laminated white furniture has ample compartments and concealed storage – for a perfect mix of storing and displaying their treasures.

Hang their mini outfits on the wardrobe hanging rail and make full use of the four open storage shelves.

Pop their nappies and wipes on the two shelves hidden behind the changing table’s door – whilst displaying storage boxes and other decorative items such as soft toys on the other three shelves to catch their attention.

2. Neutral Storage is both Practical and Calming

Obaby Grace Mini Cot Bed 3 Piece Nursery Furniture Set

Create a serene space for your little one with the incredible ‘Grace’ three-piece nursery set – available in a trio of neutral shades of pine and MDF.

As well as the height-adjustable mini cot bed – the single wardrobe offers parents lots of places for storing their baby’s ever-growing clothing ‘collection’ with not one but two clothes rails and a pair of sizable storage drawers underneath.

Then, the changing unit’s open shelves make reaching for supplies during nappy changes a breeze – and you can see at a glance when you’re running low on baby changing supplies.

Add a matching under bed storage drawer (not included) to make use of the space below the cot base.

3. Include ‘Silent Close’ Storage with Chic ‘Sleigh Bed’ Lines

Tutti Bambini Roma Mini 3 Piece Room Set

All roads lead to Roma’s stunning three-piece room set!

And why not, when it offers the perfect balance of practical storage and curved ‘sleigh bed’ style lines on the convertible cot bed, chest changing unit and double wardrobe.

Made from quality New Zealand Pine and MDF, the capacious chest of drawers with an inbuilt changing top (sold separately) are ideal for storing infant-sized bedding and blankets.

Whilst, the spacious wardrobe complete with two shelves, a hanging rail and drawer will provide much-needed storage for their clothes.

The furniture’s doors and drawers will close silently – so you never need to worry about disturbing the little one whilst pottering nearby. After all, a parent’s job is never done!

4. Choose Furniture that ‘Evolves’ with your Baby

Vox Evolve Cot Bed 3 Piece Nursery Furniture Set

What isn’t there to love about this two-tone furniture set?

It’s gorgeous cot bed, double wardrobe and chest of drawers provide ‘tonnes of storage’ to support your baby’s day.

There’s an under bed storage drawer (included) which is perfect for storing their bedding and spare pillows.

Then, once they wake up, you can go to their wonderful wardrobe and chest of drawers to pick out an adorable outfit – before changing their clothes on the purpose-built changing top (available separately), also from Vox.

The wardrobe’s cavernous drawer, hanging rail and six shelves will give you plenty of storage options.

Created using natural wood and laminated board – this contrast of materials will lend a contemporary and clean look to your ‘little bundle’s’ first bedroom.

5. Declutter ‘the Stamford Way’

Obaby Stamford Luxe Cot Bed in White

Maybe you have gathered most of your nursery furniture already and are seeking a cot that can safely store away their favourite bedtime storybook and teddy.

The Stamford Luxe Cot Bed – brought to you by the UK designer Obaby – is exactly what you’ve been searching for.

Nestling under the mattress base is a roomy drawer – and with recessed handles, you can rest knowing this useful storage won’t lead to nipped fingers.

6. Make Full Use of the Space

Vox 4 You Corner Wardrobe

Making use of spare floor space, this sleek corner wardrobe is a must for those who worry they won’t fit all of the generous gifts from the grandparents in the nursery.

Fold back the two ‘soft close’ doors to find six individual storage areas with adjustable shelves and a hanging rail – now you can see a place for their clothes, ‘nick nacks’ and other belongings.

Crisp and Scandi – we can’t think of a room theme or style of decor this wouldn’t compliment.

You may even choose a second one for your own bedroom!

7. Label their ‘Treasures’

Vox Tuli Bookcase & Toy Storage

Available in soothing ‘Pastel Green’ or ‘White’, this bookcase and toy storage unit is the place to display – and store – their favourite ‘treasures’.

A beautiful piece of modern storage that can reassure them when you’re not there – simply place it (filled with toys) near their cot and your little darling may drift off whilst looking at their best cuddly animals.

Then, during day times, it allows you to hold a teddy bear’s picnic – with their soft toys lined up in the three upper sections.

We also adore the labels – which are included for organising books, toys and more. These can help you help your toddler sort colours and objects when they’re older.

8. Use the Height of the Room to Create a Focal Point

Kids Concept Star Wall Shelf

Available in ‘Light Green’ or ‘White’ options, this open wall shelf maximises the height of any room.

When styled in a nursery – with string lights and those precious first possessions – it’s sure to become a focal point of the nursery.

Pile up wooden toys and building blocks, stack books sideways and add family photos in a frame – the only limit is your imagination.

There are nine sections full of storage possibilities – but with the option to buy more, you can ensure that all of their nursery breakables are kept safe from arm’s reach.
