Creating a nursery is such a labour of love. Choosing the right colours, furniture, and accessories for your baby’s room is an exciting part of preparing for your new arrival. If you’re looking for something extra special and want to invest in luxury nursery furniture that can be passed down through generations, look no further than British brand TeddyOne.
What to consider when planning your nursery
There’s no right or wrong when it comes to creating a nursery that’s right for you and your family, but it definitely requires some thought to get it just right. Think about the precious moments you’ll spend in the nursing chair, to those endless nappy changes around the clock. You’ll want to create a calm and restful space with room for play, so a safe and secure environment is really important.
With feeding, changing, sleeping and playing in mind, it can be hard to know what you’ll need. In reality, there are only a few staples to consider, from a cot to a changer, to storage (drawers and/or wardrobe) and a nursing chair.
We take a look at TeddyOne’s custom-made, handcrafted collection of luxury nursery furniture to give you some inspiration. Designed to be passed down from your children to theirs, TeddyOne’s nursery furniture is built to last, and can be easily adapted as your baby grows.
Choosing your baby’s cot
Your baby’s cot will be the centrepiece of your nursery, so choosing the right one is an important decision. A cot doesn’t need to be viewed as a temporary or disposable item if you invest in a product that will grow with your child.
All of TeddyOne’s cots offer simple mattress height adjustment, so you can adapt your cot bed accordingly. With the cot bed’s conversion panels you can transform your cot bed into a toddler bed and later on a day bed.
If you’re looking to create a traditional nursery, TeddyOne’s Heritage range is for you. There are four different collections under the ‘heritage’ umbrella, including Aylesbury, Chesterton, Hurlingham, and Roseberry.
Focussed around modern architectural lines, the TeddyOne Contemporary collection encompasses delicate symmetry detailing for an understated elegance that’s truly unrivalled. Choose from four different but equally beautiful collections: Berkley, Carnaby, Chelsea and Pimlico.
Which mattress is best for my baby?
TeddyOne’s range of nursery mattresses are made with nature’s finest materials. We recommend the TeddyOne Coco Mat, the original, award-winning natural fibre baby cot mattress, perfect for newborns up to 5 years of age.
Choosing a baby changing table dresser/wardrobe
You’ll definitely need some storage to house all the clothes, nappies and other paraphernalia which comes with a baby. TeddyOne’s wardrobes and dressers can be mixed and matched with the cot bed and other furniture. They all come with soft close silent runners and hinges so you won’t disturb nap time!
TeddyOne also offer an anti-roll changing matt finished in a plush soft cover. The removable topper is sized to fit their changing matt and changing caddy, later you can use it as a jigsaw tray. The selection of three quarter-sized wardrobes are also fitted with adjustable shelves and hanging rails.
The Nursing Chair:
You’ll spend a lot of time feeding your little one in those first few months, and you’ll appreciate somewhere peaceful and calm to sit when you want to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life. A nursing chair can be the perfect place to do this, especially when put in the sanctity of your baby’s nursery. The TeddyOne Celeste Nursing Chair and Ottoman is a particular favourite of ours due to its sleek design and convertible nature.
Boasting a beautiful design and on-going comfort, the Celeste nursing chair is guaranteed to become a permanent fixture in your home, after feeding and well beyond. Available with its own Ottoman, the chair comes with both rocker and static legs, giving you 2 chairs in 1 so you can adapt it according to your needs.
