Which types of nursery shelving are there?

Whether you’re a pro shelfie styler or just need some extra space to keep necessary items, it’s undeniable that shelves are a blessing when square footage comes at a premium. Luckily, there are a variety of wall shelves and other types of shelves out there that do justice to your ultimate goal, be it styling or just storing.

Children’s wall shelving

Children’s bedrooms can have more in terms of the colour of the furniture than other rooms. The key? Choose a chromatic range that generates a certain visual harmony, and place the points of colour strategically to catch the eye. A great option for small rooms that do not have much space to place other types of storage furniture such as floor-standing shelves or chests of drawers.

Children’s shelving with cubes

Another ingenious and fun solution for wall storage is to opt for cube-shaped shelving. This type of modular style shelving will give you a lot of freedom when it comes to customising it, as you can paint and decorate the cubes in your own way.

Wall shelves for children’s books

Encouraging children to read is essential for them to develop their imagination and creativity. Although some parents nowadays opt for digital books or tablets, many others still prefer traditional books, i.e. paper books. But finding a place for their little library is not so easy. Our suggestion? Put a dedicated bookshelf on the wall. In addition to making the most of the space, you will always know where to find your favourite books.

Bookshelves for storybooks

Story shelves are a must for the reading corner. Books arouse the interest of children, especially if they are accessible and easily recognisable. At an early age, when parents want to teach children the habit of reading, they do not yet read. Therefore the spine of the book with an exciting title is invisible to their eyes.

As well as being able to move it around easily for vacuuming, you’ll have plenty of storage for their toys, and if you choose a shelf like the one you see in the photo, you’ll also have a top shelf that you can decorate with cuddly toys and figurines or, why not, add a small cushion and turn this area into an improvised seat for their reading time.

Clouds are another of the most recurrent motifs when it comes to decorating children’s bedrooms (especially for newborns). You’ll find them in rugs, bedding, lamps, or in simple wall shelves.
