Planning your twins nursery is a delicate balance of form and function. You may be tempted to blow your entire baby budget on nursery furniture that is super adorable and perfect for babies (and only babies). Stop right there! We want to make sure you’re getting more for your money. You can still get the twins nursery you always wanted that will last you well beyond the baby years. If you are a smart shopper, you’ll choose quality furniture pieces that will last you through your twins’ entire childhood.
The key is to buy timeless furniture pieces that will last and design your nursery theme around them with trendy accessories and fabrics. Choosing furniture that will stand the test of time with a classic “timeless” look will save you big bucks in the long run. You won’t need to buy new dressers, bookcases, and nightstands every 5 years.
I know it’s hard to do when your babies aren’t even born yet, but try to envision what their room will look like in 5, 10, and 15 years down the line. Will the larger furniture pieces you’re buying for their room NOW, such as dressers, nightstands, and bookcases, still look great when they are teenagers? Make sure you’re choosing pieces that will not only be stylish years from now, but will also hold up against the heavy use from twins.
