A changing table is a wonderful piece of furniture for any home. It not only provides safety and convenience while changing a baby’s diapers, but it also beautifies the room and gives the mom-to-be some privacy. There are several different styles of baby dressers to choose from. One can be purchased as a stand-alone unit that includes the changing table and a drawer or one can be purchased as part of a changing table set. If purchasing a stand-alone unit, be sure that it is big enough to accommodate your child’s diapers and that it is sturdy enough to bear the weight of a growing baby.
A traditional two-drawer dresser with a small drawer is a very popular option for mothers to be. The advantage of this type of dressers is the added convenience of having the drawer next to the diaper area. You do not have to go back and forth to the changing table to change the baby’s diapers. In addition, a small drawer located at the front of the dresser is ideal for keeping additional diapers on hand. Most two-drawer dressers will include a medium or a large drawer depending on how much additional diapers the mother needs to store. This storage option makes it easy to easily locate the necessary items without having to rummage through the various compartments of the changing table.
Some styles of four-drawer baby dressers require an assembly required. These units allow the drawer to be opened completely and have only the four corners assembled into the top of the unit. Although these types of dressers look more rustic yet modern, they are usually quite sturdy and most are quite portable.
There are also styles of baby dressers with a “curved” bottom. This unique style makes it easy to hang on a coat rack or use as an end table. The curved bottom part of this dresser makes it ideal for hanging clothing and provides a very neat appearance. The best baby dressers, however, are the ones that have a smooth bottom. This helps keep clothing from being caught in the gap between the drawer and the wall. Since clothes can become tangled, this makes for a very neat and efficient storage solution.
If you would prefer wooden nursery dressers instead of metal, consider purchasing those with rounded corners. This allows for the drawer to be opened fully and is a safer option than the plastic or metal ones mentioned earlier. The wooden dressers, however, can be prone to collecting dust so it may not be the best choice if your child often has accidents in their room.
One thing to look for when purchasing a new dresser for a baby is whether it comes with an anti-tipping device. Most children can pull down the drawer on their own if they are strong enough. An anti-tipping device can help prevent injury. It can also keep the drawer from shifting, allowing the drawer to slide easily into place after baby puts items in it. A 4-drawer dresser is the perfect choice for a first born, since it can fit easily into any room.
There are also dressers available that are made out of wood but are not fitted with an anti-tip mechanism. These dressers are more versatile and can be used in a variety of ways. The dressers themselves can be moved around as needed. It is important, however, to ensure that the drawers are assembled properly. Most parents find it easier to assemble dressers that are made out of wood since the drawer requires no extra strength from adults to open and close.
A baby’s changing table is an essential piece of furniture for the nursery. It is a place where baby can get out of the stroller and change clothes. Dressing rooms that do not have this piece of furniture will force parents to purchase another changing table or rent one when they need to change baby’s clothes.
