Traditional styles for a modern nursery

We’re back in the nursery here at the Very Blog, picking out yet more fantastic furniture for the newest member of the family. We’re on the lookout for high quality furniture that will keep our youngsters safe, comfortable and happy during their early years and, once again, we think that we have found the perfect combination.

This week, we’re thinking about furniture that combines modern build quality and features with a traditional look, allowing us to create the perfect environment in any nursery, particularly if you have followed the growing trend for traditional wooden floors.

Of course, the centrepiece of any child’s bedroom is the cot. It is where they will spend most of their time in their early months so it is important to find one that offers the highest possible levels of comfort, safety and value for money.

The Ladybird Sorrento cot bed is a traditional piece of bedroom furniture that can adapt to your growing child’s needs, thanks to its three-position base for a varying cot height.

This cot is designed to grow with your child, converting into a junior bed when your child is ready. That means a longer useable lifespan for your cot and even greater value for money but it also has the advantage of keeping your child’s surroundings as familiar as possible, helping them to feel at ease as they make the step from cot to bed.

Of course, when your newborn arrives, they’re going to need the occasional changing. Now, we all know that this isn’t the easiest of most pleasant job so why not try to make things a little easier with this Ladybird Sorrento changer/dresser?

This traditional piece of bedroom furniture that will look stylish in any nursery, with a changing shelf at the top, so you can change your baby’s nappy without having get down on the floor or risk hurting your back. There are two shelves below that are perfect for storing all your baby’s changing equipment, from nappies to talcum powder to magic wipes, where it’s easily at hand when you need it.

Finally, to complete the set, you’re going to need to store all of your baby’s clothing, toys and anything else that might otherwise clutter their bedroom or nursery. For that reason, we have picked out this sturdy one-door wardrobe, which we think is perfectly designed for all your little ones things. With a shelf and hanging rail, plus a handy drawer at the bottom of the unit, this unit offers both practicality and style.
