Selecting Modern Baby and Kids' Furniture by Room

Go beyond the basics when finding the ideal baby, toddler and kids' furniture when shopping Crate & Kids in-store or online. Not only does selecting new children's furniture, like twin beds, homework desks and kid-friendly dressers help enhance the look of their space, it also means more comfort and practicality for the entire family. Looking for cute baby furniture that makes a seamless transition from the nursery to the big kid bedroom? Peruse our convertible nursery cribs that effortlessly transition from standard baby crib to toddler- or twin-size bed once your little one is old enough. For parents who want kids' furniture that helps with bonding, consider a kids' bookcase, too. It holds all their favorite bedtime stories, and when they start school, their bookcase will also keep textbooks within reach as they sit at their study desk on school days. Still looking for modern baby and kids' furniture ideas from Crate & Barrel Kids? Read on to discover the best options by room.

Nursery Furniture for Baby

Want to bring baby home to a comfortable space that fosters growing and learning? Let Crate & Barrel Baby help with a crib that anchors the nursery. Standard baby cribs are ideal for families that want to keep it simple, while nursery cribs with spindles or curved frames spruce up the space. No matter your family's preferred aesthetic, neutral hues of beige, black and white complement any theme, while bolder shades of red, green and pink add more whimsy. For parents who want their newborn to sleep nearby for the first few months, consider a bedside bassinet instead. Plan on making a lot of trips to Grandma and Grandpa's house? Get a travel crib as well, to help keep naptime on schedule. Don't forget nursery furniture for yourself—a swivel glider chair with matching ottoman helps keep everyone comfortable while nursing, and a dresser with changing table topper makes diaper changes easier.

Toddler Bedroom Furniture:

Has your tyke started walking and talking? It's time to transition them to a toddler bedroom. This move is easiest if you invested in a convertible crib that transforms into a toddler bed but no worries if not. A toddler bed rail can be added to a standard baby crib to help keep your child in place, while also giving them more room to sleep. Tots who have shown an early interest in books might also enjoy a cube bookcase that features favorite fairy tales and other storybooks. If some shelves have extra space, add a couple of storage bins that help keep dolls, stuffed animals, wooden blocks and other popular toys organized.

Kids Furniture for Their Bedroom:

Shopping for your oldest child instead? Find kids' furniture that reflects where they are in life. No matter whether your child loves hitting the books, hanging out with their friends or exploring the world around them, be sure to fit their bedroom with children's furniture that compliments their evolving personality. The ideal twin bed, for instance, depends on your family's preferred style. An upholstered kids' bed or a bed frame with an arched headboard adds a sophisticated touch, while a bed with built-in storage adds more practicality. Don't forget to finish the look with a kids' cotton sheet set and coordinating quilt to help them settle in for the night. A kids' nightstand nearby is the ideal spot for a table lamp so they can read before bed, and a homework desk makes it easy for young ones to read, write and doodle.

Playroom Furniture

Regardless of your kids' ages, they love having their very own place to play and be creative. Want to give them an outlet for their very own brand of genius? Fill this space with playroom furniture that encourages the use of their imaginations. Example: An adjustable kids' table can be used for all their favorite activities, like molding clay, playing board games and setting up their dollhouse. Some kids' tables even feature a paper roll holder that makes arts and crafts more fun. Don't forget to arrange a variety of kids' chairs around the table's edge, too. If the playroom is also where your children catch the latest flicks, situate personalized Nod Chairs or kids' bean bag chairs in front of the TV for premium viewing.
