Preparing your bub’s nursery is an exciting time! There's furniture to choose, sheets to pick out and a whole lot of daydreaming to ensue. It is often a busy time, so we’ve developed this guide to help you to create a magical nursery that is welcoming, comfortable, and includes all the essentials in a few easy steps. Whether you’re planning or refreshing your little one’s nursery, this guide touches on everything you need for a functional and stylish space.
As newborns spend so much time sleeping, your cot becomes the focal point, and possibly the most important part of setting up your nursery. Choose something that sets the tone for your nursery décor, like The Arden Cot – timeless, gorgeous and versatile, it suits multiple interior styles.

Close on the heels of the perfect cot, is ensuring your little one has quality bedding. The luxuriously soft textures and natural materials of the Adairs Kids range of bedding promote comfortable and restful sleep for your bub. Opting for natural fibres like bamboo, wool and cotton is an essential as they regulate temperature for a peaceful sleep.

Sheets are among the most important building blocks of any nursery. From plain to printed, novelty and gingham patterned sheets there’s a wide range, great for mixing and matching with the rest of your bedlinen.

The next step in the nursery puzzle is picking your perfect quilt cover. Quilt covers are a great way to add colour and interest to your nursery without a big spend, and they can be easily changed with the season to bring a refreshing feel into your little one’s space.
