Even though you may be feeling the pinch, it doesn’t mean you can’t snag yourself a stylish cot on a budget. Don’t forget, you can always economise on the cot and jazz up with bedding, accessories, or some fab nursery walls. With cots starting from £28.38, Holly has found 7 stylish cot buys to wow your baby nursery:
Yet another fabulous product from one of Sweden’s finest, the well priced Brio Cot is ideal for colour fiends. It will give you high quality style and a colour injection if you opt for it in raspberry, yellow, or even lime, plus you can get it in honey wood or ‘ice’ white. It has a 3 position base plus you can get rockers for the legs too.
John Lewis Luca Cot
Classic and chic on a budget, this is made from rubberwood and foil wrapped MDF, with a two-handed drop side and two position base. Available also in white, you can get a matching Luca Changing Unit if you want to go for the ‘set’ look. £68 at John Lewis.
Ikea Hermelin Cot
If blue is your colour and you want to stretch the use of your cot, go straight to Ikea. When they’re bigger, you can remove one of the sides and turn it into a daybed.
