Guide to Choosing the Perfect Baby Furniture Finish for Your Nursery

By Kim Proulx

Planning for a new baby can feel like a full-time job! There’s so much to shop for and think about as you prepare to adjust your life for the newest member of your family. As you begin to pull the components of your nursery together, you may be wondering what kind of finish is best for all that baby furniture.

Gliders and rocking chairs, cribs, diaper changing tables and dressers should all match for the most complete look, and choosing the finish for the nursery is a great start. Even if the baby furniture isn't all from the same collection, by selecting a coordinating finish, you can still pull the look together quite well.

Here is a guide to help you choose what finish best suits your baby's nursery and your home. While there are dozens of finishes to choose from, the list below pulls together the most commonly offered finishes from leading baby furniture brands.

Oak - A classic, warm finish is a very traditional look in any room of the home. A beautiful woodsy forest comes to mind with this peaceful finish. Have a look at this lovely Combo Tower / Dresser combo with multiple drawers and a cabinet by Storkcraft in a gorgeous, Oak finish.
