It’s Friday again – yay! I hope you have all had a great week. Ours has been eventful but all’s well that ends well and we are looking forward to a calmer weekend! This week I’m going to talk about my five favourite places to buy furniture for kids. Since having our kiddo’s I don’t want to think about how many hours I have spent researching the best places to buy items for their rooms. I am usually inspired by something I’ve seen in a magazine or on a website and am usually disappointed when I find out how much the item costs. Many times, I’ve had to be reigned in when making purchases for our home and as it turns out, we are usually able to achieve a similar look for (a lot) less. That doesn’t mean I don’t love to buy a higher end item in the sales though!
So, without further ado, here are five of my favourite places to shop for children’s furniture….
Aspace specialise purely in children’s furniture and accessories and the range is nothing short of gorgeous. It’s not cheap but the quality is top notch and they often run a discount of 15 – 20% if you pick your moment. Keep checking into their website for offers and promotions. (There happens to be one running right now so quote ‘PETALS’ at the check out for a 15% spring discount – I’m not sure when it runs out, so get in quick!)
Great Little Trading Company (GLTC) offer amazing and eye catching storage systems for kids. They also have an appealing range of furniture, toys and accessories. I was always particularly drawn by their play tables and wooden toys when my children were younger and their Christmas offering is always worth checking out for pretty decorations and practical seasonal items.
IKEA are always a winner as far as I am concerned. Gorgeous, great quality, practical furniture at un-rivalled prices make IKEA our go-to for items for our home. The only draw-back of course, is that half the world has the same opinion so you are unlikely to find anything unique! However, when you can personalise your items with paint, wallpaper and decorative knobs, why pay more?!
We have always been big fans of Next furniture around here. Their prices are mid-range so they offer a cheaper alternative to the likes of Aspace and John Lewis while they are very much in the thick of the competition when it comes to style. Make sure you buy what you want from any particular range when you see it though as their selections tend to change relatively quickly.
5. John Lewis
British stalwart John Lewis have an impeccable reputation when it comes to quality and their furniture is no exception. They also pride themselves on their customer service so you get some peace of mind when you spend what will undoubtedly be a little bit extra. Their kids furniture range is not huge but it is quality not quantity that will have been at the top of their buyer’s list. Definitely worth checking out the sales for a fantastic quality item that will last.
Does anyone have any other suggestions for favourite places to go for children’s furniture? These are just five of my faves but as always, it was a tough choice! I would love to hear about your preferences in the comments.
