Designing and putting together your new nursery is one of the most enjoyable parts of preparing for a new baby. From choosing the colours, layout and furniture to shopping for all the super-cute finishing touches, it’s all part of the nesting process ready for your new arrival.

Furniture should be the first thing you choose for the room. It’s easier and cheaper to match paints, fabric and wallpaper to your favourite furniture, rather than the other way around. You can choose a complete room set – usually a cot or cot bed, dresser and wardrobe – or select your pieces individually, tailoring them to your requirements. Nurseries come in all shapes and sizes, and every family’s needs are different, so one room set won’t always work for every room or every baby.

East Coast Nursery supply a collection of colour-matching furniture pieces in a grey finish, inviting you to ‘Create your perfect nursery’. By ensuring that their furniture colour-matches perfectly, they give you the freedom to put together your own room set to suit your style, space and budget.

Grey has been a growing trend for nursery furniture in the last few years. It’s neutral and unisex, with a modern look.

The East Coast grey collection includes the Anna Cot, featuring a one-handed dropside and two protective teething rails. The open design and curved ends give it an airy, classic feel and the grey finish will complement a wide variety of bedding styles.

If you’re looking for a cot bed, try the Hudson for its simple good looks, or the beautiful Alaska Sleigh which includes a handy underbed drawer. Both designs are great long-lasting pieces as they convert from a cot to a bed as your little one gets older.

For smaller rooms, the Carolina Cot is a space-saving design at 20% smaller than a standard cot. It comes complete with its own mattress and has open sides and ends to maximise the airflow around your sleeping baby.

A matching dresser is a great addition to the room – it gives you plenty of storage space and a safe sturdy surface to change your baby on, without bending down.

The Clara Dresser is one of the choices available in a matching shade of grey. Its open shelves will keep changing essentials close to hand, and the top fits a standard changing mat. There’s even a convenient towel rail on one side.

East Coast Nursery also offer ‘Create your own nursery’ furniture in white and antique finishes, giving flexibility and choice to every new parent, to suit every size, style and budget.
