Pick the Perfect Nursery Wardrobe with Cuckooland

When a baby is on the way the last thing you’re probably thinking about is storage… but you’ll quickly find that without it, the nursery can soon become total chaos.

Available in a range of sizes and styles – nursery floors and surfaces will be clear of clutter and baby outfits and essentials will be kept organised.

1. Sleep Soundly with Soft Close Doors and Drawers

Vox Canne 2 Door Wardrobe

When your little one finally makes an appearance, finding time to tidy up can feel like a rare thing! When nap time rolls around, this can be the best time to catch up on household chores, but keeping quiet while you clean up can be a task in itself. Vox have thought of that! Their Canne 2 Door Wardrobe has been designed with soft-close doors and drawers, so as you’re organising the clothes washing and hanging outfits on the full-width rail, there’s no chance of slamming doors. Your baby can sleep soundly in the same room, none the wiser!

Soft-close doors and drawers are a great safety feature too, taking care of little hands and preventing tears and trapped fingers once your tot starts gaining independence. With a coordinating dresser available, also with soft-close features, create a stylish, safe and practical set for your newborn.

Available in a choice of colours, the Canne range is practical and easy on the eye… just look at the cane rattan drawer front and gold handle details – we wouldn’t blame you for wanting a Canne Double Wardrobe for your bedroom!

2. Single Wardrobes Squeeze Into Awkward Spaces

Vox Milenne Wardrobe

Not set for space in the nursery? If the nursery room layout is less than kind, you can still utilise those awkward alcoves with a single wardrobe.

Fitting into those hard-to-fill spots, the slimline Vox Milenne Wardrobe opens up to reveal plenty of space for essentials. Clean and crease-free baby clothes can be hung on the full-width rail with shoes and booties lined up below. With 2 additional shelved compartments, hide away extra toys, changing mats, bedding and anything else you’re not yet using.

Available in a choice of colours, each with elegant panelling, carved lines and gold details – not only is this vintage-inspired design incredibly spacious for a single wardrobe, but it’s stylish too!

3. FSC Wooden Wardrobes for Eco-Friendly Families

Not just ticking the storage and style boxes, Oliver Furniture offers eco-conscious alternatives with the Contemporary Wood 3 Door Wardrobe in White & Oak.

Lovingly crafted in Denmark from FSC certified, responsibly sourced solid wood and treated with non-toxic finishes, you have the option to pick out a practical nursery wardrobe that also protects the planet.

From the 8 shelves, hanging rail, handles, hooks and drawers – by using all-natural materials in its design, the Oliver Furniture Contemporary Wood 3 Door Wardrobe is child-friendly too. The simple Scandinavian triple wardrobe also features soft-locking doors and drawers to ensure there’s no risk of trapped fingers!

4. Motion Sensor Lighting for Night-time Nappy Changes

Vox Simple Customisable Corner Wardrobe

As well as being fully customisable, from the unit colour to the handles and feet, the Vox Simple Corner Wardrobe has a hidden feature that you’ll never know you needed… Upon opening the 2 soft-close doors you’ll be greeted with an LED light with motion sensor!

This unique feature is a life-saver, especially when night-time changes are underway. Don’t rush to switch on the main lights (no one appreciates being blinded in the middle of the night), instead open up your Vox Simple Corner Wardrobe and easily gather nappy changing essentials without disturbing you and your baby. Featuring two hanging rails and 4 adjustable shelved compartments, you’ll be able to clearly see everything you need to get your hands on.

5. Store it all with Sectional Wardrobe Space

Vox Concept 3 Door Wardrobe in Grey & Black

When you’re juggling your baby and those never-ending to-do lists, you won’t have time to be endlessly searching for essentials! If time is against you, select a wardrobe with plenty of space, but also with defined sections so you can quickly grab everything you need without having to think about it.

The Vox Concept 3 Door Wardrobes ensure all nursery essentials have a home. The triple wardrobe keeps everything neatly hidden away behind soft-close doors and drawers. Featuring 5 shelved compartments, a main unit with hanging rail, a closed cupboard and 2 drawers, everything can have an assigned spot!

We’d recommend getting the label maker out too – create markers on each of the shelves so you and your partner know where everything belongs. You’ll be able to grab baby bits and bobs in a flash and if your partner offers to help with the tidying up, your ‘system’ won’t be spoiled. The Grey and Black Concept Wardrobe includes a chalkboard; why not leave quick reminders or supportive messages and brighten their day while you tick off those lists together!

6. Select Open Storage When Hands are Full

Holding your baby in one arm and juggling everything else in the other is a situation every parent finds themselves in. This doesn’t have to be a headache if an open wardrobe is available!

The Vox Leaf Wardrobe offers the best of both worlds. Closed storage for things you’re not using as often and open storage for quickly grabbing those everyday essentials! We’re talking nappies, lotions, toys, comforters, muslins. When they’re on hand you won’t need to rummage behind wardrobe doors to quickly see to your newborn – everything is ready and waiting.

With a matching changing unit available, choose from graphite or white and create a baby changing station of dreams!

7. Adapt Your Storage with Adjustable Designs

Vox 4 You Bi Fold 4 Door Wardrobe with Built in Drawers

If you love the look of built-in home storage, but the price tag has you wincing, the Vox 4 You Bi-Fold 4 Door Wardrobe is a great alternative! With home installation available and offering an abundance of storage for you and your baby, the Bi-Fold 4 Door Wardrobe features adjustable storage, perfect for growing youngsters.

The shelved sections are totally interchangeable allowing you to store everything away. Simply adapt the internal design to suit your needs. The separate sections can be used however you please – from clothing to toys, you’ll even have space to split into age ranges if you’re feeling really organised! And once baby clothes have been outgrown, move the shelving around again and continue using the wardrobe from birth to their teens.
