We leave no stones unturned to choose the perfect furniture for our homes. Right from the kitchen to the bedroom, the living room to the balcony, we carefully pick every item to go with the aesthetics and interiors besides the price factor. Then why not put the same amount of thought while buying a dresser for your baby nursery? That piece of furniture is going to be at your home for a long time and can be used to store all your baby’s belongings. Hence, selecting a perfect dresser is as essential as selecting any other important furniture for your home.

Buying that perfect baby dresser would depend on many important factors. If we sit and keep evaluating every tiny detail, you might never hear the end of it. Hence, narrow down the factors to a few important ones. 

Some of the important factors are mentioned hereunder:

  • Functionality:

This aspect mainly focuses on the different ways your baby dresser could be put to use. Most baby dressers come with a removing changing tray for you to use as a changing table for diapers. Let’s face it, you are going to have to change your baby diapers multiple times in a day.

So, a baby dresser, which can also be used as a changing table is quite a deal. There is no need to spend separately on a changing table, which lies idle at your home after the baby’s diaper changing days are over. Not only would you be saving a few bucks but also some extra space in the room.

Ideal Baby is where your search for that perfect baby dresser comes to an end. We guarantee to provide all functionalities you are looking for.

  • Space

The next important thing to keep in mind is the space. Firstly, consider how much space it has on the inside to store your baby’s clothes, shoes, toys, and other kinds of stuff. A baby has more stuff than any other adult in the home. It is important to keep them all in a safe place so that you can easily find something when the need arises. There is no point spending on a baby dresser if it doesn’t give you enough storage space and you end up storing most of your baby’s belongings in your closet.

Another important thing is to check if the dresser is not taking up a lot of space in your baby’s room. Once your baby grows up and starts crawling/walking, he/she is going to need more space in the room. You do not want to overcrowd the room with an extra-sized dresser. However, if the room has enough space for a big dresser then there is no issue spending on the same. 

  • Aesthetics & Design

Then you need to look at the aesthetics and design aspects. Like any other household furniture, this too shall go well with the color, interior, and other furniture in your baby’s room. You don’t want to mess up the appearance of your baby’s room. It is also recommended to keep the color tone similar to the crib. Hence, make sure that the color of your dresser and crib go well with the color of the room. Also, when your child matures with time, the dresser should be able to perform separately as furniture even without a crib.

Most parents choose a design that works well for a baby but not so much when the baby grows up. So choose a timeless piece that would not lose its charm even when your baby grows up.

  • Durability:

The next thing to look out for in a baby dresser is the quality of the piece to ensure its durability. Give a run check on the drawers to ensure smooth usage for a long time and the ability to hold bulky items. Check if the product is finely constructed and has a perfect finish to resist easy damages. Check how strong is the back of the dresser.

The material also plays a key role in determining the durability of the dresser. Dressers are generally available in solid wood, particleboard, medium-density fiberboard, etc. These materials have their own pros and cons. Though solid wood material has the highest durability, they are comparatively expensive and heavy to transport. The other two materials are lighter in weight and cheaper, but less durable. Hence, it is important to evaluate your options after putting detailed thoughts into it.

  • Cost

There are other baby related-costs, which will be coming your way in the days to come.

It’s always best to spend that extra amount in order to future proof your investment. Especially when you’re shopping for your dear one, invest in quality, rather than thinking about saving some bucks.

At last, it is recommended to do thorough research and select the best piece that comes within your budget.
