Is little one’s first bedroom more box room than board room? Emma Childs, Nursery Buyer, puts together her favourite space-saver essentials to maximise your space.
Her top tips? “Keep your theme simple and streamlined. A modern scheme with clean lines works best. Make the most of wall space with shelves and get clever with storage – toy tidies, nappy stackers, boxes – anything that minimises clutter.”

“In the small nursery storage is key. Keep all your cuddlies in one place with this handy hammock”.
