If the baby room is rather small or you have a shared nursery, you should buy only indispensable pieces of furniture. These are cot bed, changing table and at least one item for storage. For example a chest of drawers or a small wardrobe. For large nursery you can consider other items and decoration accessories.

Very cheap nursery items could be less durable. If you planning to have more children in the future it is rather recommended to purchase a cot bed that could last longer.
