Whether you are working in a small space or have plenty of room to spare, your nursery needs some basic elements to make baby safe and comfortable, starting with a crib. Once you’ve selected the crib, you will want to add a dresser, comfortable chair such as a glider rocker, and a small table for a lamp. Many baby dressers are designed to be used as changing tables, while others can accept a bookcase or hutch on top.

Mix and match to suit your personal style, or if you prefer a more coordinated look, consider nursery furniture collections that offer accessory pieces such as a hutch or bookcase.
