Nursery Furniture Ideas for Small Rooms

We know that good things come in small packages. Unless of course it’s your baby’s nursery that’s a little on the small side. It can be easy to worry that there’ll not be enough space to house their cot, furniture and all of the other necessities – despite them being the tiniest member of the family.

With so much to fit in, store and display, you need clever, compact and whimsical furniture that’ll make the most of every square metre of floor and wall space.

Shop with Cuckooland for ‘out of the box-room’ solutions to furnishing your space. Here are our suggestions of perfectly-formed furniture that’ll make the first few years of their life a breeze – whilst creating precious memories.

1. Obaby Bantam Space Saver Cot

Obaby Bantam Space Saver Cot

A cot is probably the most important piece of furniture you’ll buy for your nursery. It’s where your newborn will sleep, rest and take in the world – one day at a time.

Slatted sides offer your peace of mind as you look on and imagine their future.

At 56cm width x 104cm length, this space-saving cot is the perfect petite bed for newborns up to 18 months, given its protective teething rails.

Also adjustable to three different base heights, this bed will accommodate them as they reach for the stars. Equally, you’ll appreciate the choice of three neutral colours (white, warm grey and taupe grey) that’ll create a timeless look.

2. Vox 4 You Baby Cot with Storage in White & Oak

Vox 4 You Baby Cot with Storage in White & Oak

This is the cot you need if you’re looking to spend lazy Sundays snuggling up together as a family.

Take down the side panel of this baby cot for feeding times and hugs. Or, leave it in place when in their nursery.

You’ll still be able to access the three handy oak storage sections from the other side and it has wheels – making this a practical as well as stylish two-tone addition when easily moved to your room.

Reach over easily, as its mattress (sold separately) has the same height as the Vox 4You 4 Poster Bed – meaning you can join the beds and keep a close eye on them during those first few months.

3. Tutti Bambini Roma Mini 3 Piece Room Set

Tutti Bambini Roma Mini 3 Piece Room Set

If space is limited, this well-thought-out furniture set by Tutti Bambini will meet – and exceed – you and your little bambini’s needs. Featuring flowing lines in a choice of cool neutral shades, each piece has the looks – and also the storage – to earn its place in any bijoux box room.

Suitable until your little one is approaching their sixth birthday – and beyond – the fixed-sided cot cleverly converts into a junior bed (2-6 years), before becoming a sofa bed; ideal for creating a reading nook.

Then, the traditional dresser has a changing top above three drawers that can house those all-important supplies such as nappies and wet wipes. Whilst the sizable double wardrobe will store all of your child’s clothes neatly away.

Why not save time and secure three coordinating pieces of furniture in one go?

4. Oliver Furniture Wood Mini+ 4 in 1 Cot Bed in White & Oak

Oliver Furniture Wood Mini+ 4 in 1 Cot Bed in White & Oak

Growing alongside your little one up to the age of 9 years old, this adaptable cot bed by Oliver Furniture will accommodate your mini-me through their first years of sleep.

Keeping the same frame, you can adjust the base height and length at a pace that suits them.

Perfect for the planet and your pocket too, you’ll only need to buy this high-quality piece of furniture once. Plus, your little one will feel all grown-up as they move from a cot with safety rails to a sideless cot bed for toddlers. You can then convert it into a junior bed and then a daybed.

Buying the (add-on) low loft bed style conversion kit will raise it up further and give you precious storage space underneath.

5. Vox Stige Modular Wall Shelf

Vox Stige Modular Wall Shelf

This 3 section modular wall shelf is another easy way of adding some much-needed storage.

Keep their toys and books off the floor by placing them in one – or more – of these wall shelves in your nursery. Make full use of awkward spaces under eaves or above stair boxes to meet your needs.

You can decide to hang this Scandi storage ‘workhorse’ vertically or horizontally to suit. Plus, their modular profile enables you to arrange them in different configurations (as seen here).

Soothe the space with the pistachio version or add a bold splash of colour with blue. Maybe, you’ll pick the pine option if you don’t yet know whether you’re having a boy or girl. That’s one special surprise!

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

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

Why sacrifice style because your bundle of joy’s bedroom is smaller than yours?

You don’t need to when you choose the retro Vox tall chest of drawers with desirable vintage accents. At just 50.5cm wide, it’s perfect to keep their clothes and precious belongings organised.

The top surface also offers generous display space for photos. Get ready to showcase their many momentos.

Which of the six colours (white and oak, oak, blue, pink, green and yellow) will you select?

7. Lewis Beach Hut Single Wardrobe in White

As a single size, it’s perfect for placing in smaller nurseries. With four roomy shelves and a depth of 40cm, it offers the perfect balance of slimline storage.
