There will come a time when junior has grown out of his or her child-themed furniture and it can pay to start out with a more grown-up design from the outset?
White or light-grey painted furniture is neutral enough to blend with any kind of decorating theme, from nursery to adult, and is generally a safe choice for children’s rooms.
The Wilton range of drawers and wardrobes come in a variety of sizes to suit a single child’s space or a shared room. They are solid and well made too, so should last a few years. You’ll also be pleased to learn that the drawer units come fully-assembled too, which is one less thing to worry about.
