Now that I am in the second trimester in our twins we have started to talk about their nursery. The first thing on our list was figuring out what furniture pieces we need for their room. One of the biggest things to consider is the size of the room and the fact that two little humans will be sharing it.
This part is so exciting for me, you see it’s the first time I get to create a nursery for my babies. Zoey and I shared a room when she was born since we lived with my parents and Lia shared with us then Zoey due to the lack of space. Getting to create a space for the twins is a total dream come true. Although the final theme will be determined by their gender we wanted to search for pieces that would fit no matter what!
Now the job of choosing furniture is not just walking into a store or looking online and just picking one. There are a few things you want to consider when picking nursery furniture and I am here with my tips and how-to’s to help.
1.Find a Brand You Love
We have been huge fans of the furniture brand Baby Relax, if you are not following them on Instagram you need to check out their page @BabyRelaxOfficial . The nursery inspo is on overload! We consider ourselves to be pretty modern parents, in both our style and approach, which is what we love about Baby Relax Furniture. Baby Relax is all about creating pieces for the modern family that are just B-E-A-U-TIFUL
2.Measure Your Space
This was a huge thing for us! We made some measurements before I let myself wander off into “This would be so pretty” land. With the need for two cribs we quickly became aware that we would not have the space for a dresser to double as a changing table. Thankfully we have a full sized closet to work with so it was not completely heartbreaking. Measuring gave us an idea of the furniture sizes we could fit and came in handy when choose a glider style as well. Because guys- Baby Relax has gliders that make you want one for every room!
By choose growth I mean think about how long you want your crib to live in your home. Some cribs are just cribs, others convert to toddler beds, and nowadays you can find cribs like many of Baby Relax’s 5-in-1 options that grow into a full size bed. By purchasing a 5-in-1 you have purchased your child’s bed for the next 18 years (mattresses are not included). For us and the space allotted a 2-in-1 crib to toddler bed was what we aimed for.
4.Find a Style You Love
One of the amazing things about Baby Relax is that they carry something for everyone. You can find a more rustic crib or a beautifully upholstered one- the choice is completely yours. For us we want to keep it modern and simple. Think modern minimalism with a rustic twist. The Miles 2-in-1 in white was the crib for us! I love the minimalistic design and the gold bits to make it pop. No matter which of the themes we go with it will be a perfect match!
5.Look for Coordinating Pieces
I love how easy Baby Relax makes it to select all your nursery furniture with them. You can find matching dressers and the perfect gliders to go with every one of their cribs. Although fitting a dresser in the room is impossible we definitely picked a glider that made my heart smile. We went with the Raleigh Gliding Recliner in grey. It is the perfect size and the fact that it can also recline is bound to be a hit with my husband.
