The best nursery dresser for storing essential baby items

A nursery dresser situated in a grey-neutral toned nursery

by Rosie Floyd |

From the crucial nappies and wipes to the piles of baby grows and sleepsuits, babies have a lot of stuff. It can be overwhelming to think about where you are going to put everything. That's where a nursery dresser comes in. They're fantastic for storing everything you're going to need on a daily basis for your little one.

What's the difference between a nursery dresser and a regular dresser?

The main difference between a nursery dresser and a regular dresser is usually the style. Nursery dressers are made to match the colour palette of a first years nursery. Many nursery dressers come with attachments - so you can use them as a baby changing station. Once your little one no longer needs changing facilities, the attachments can be removed, tranforming it into a regular dresser. This type of furturniture is also designed with features, such as soft-close drawers and recessed handles to make them much safer for little hands.

If you are looking to get your baba's nursery organised, we've put together a list of the best nursery dressers: so you know exactly where everything is once your little bundle of joy has arrived.
