When the arrival of a baby is announced, future parents are divided between their joy of welcoming their darling, symbol of their love, and more material considerations like the budget to be expected. The baby room and its price often worry.
How much money to spend on it? Here’s what you need to know.

A variable rate depending on the number of furniture and the quality of the materials

I wouldn't surprise you by telling you that of course, the price of the baby room varies according to the number of pieces of furniture that make it up and the materials used to make them.

Between entry-level furniture from certain major brands and those made from high-end or ecological materials from specialist stores, there is a considerable price difference.

Among the essentials for the baby's room , sleeping. The entry prices for cots with bars start at around €80 and climb to almost a hundred for bassinets and other cradles. The latter will only accommodate babies for a few months and will require the purchase of a mattress and fitted sheets of sometimes fanciful dimensions. It is therefore important to think carefully about the relevance of this purchase before cracking on a bassinet, as lovely as it is, by planning for the longer term.

In addition to the bed, the baby's room must have at least a changing table whether it constitutes a piece of furniture in its own right or whether it is integrated into the top of the chest of drawers and a space to store your little one's clothes wardrobe or chest of drawers. For each of these two pieces of equipment, the budget to be expected is around €80 at the entry level.

Also, the price of a complete baby room starts at around 250 €. But beware, in this case, it can only be furniture without real charm, of poor quality which does not resist frequent use and possible dismantling/reassembly and above all, whose wooden panels contain a harmful carcinogenic substance, formaldehyde, in more or less significant doses. Something to think about...

How to reduce the cost of the nursery?

At a time when future parents are wondering when to prepare the baby's room< /a>, it is wise, to make the right furnishing choices, to have a global and sustainable vision to reduce the cost.

What is the best option?

The purchase of low-cost furniture that must be renewed as soon as the child grows up (even before when it is of poor quality) or the purchase of an evolving baby room built with raw materials of choice and facing the years without showing signs of weakness ?

The key to reducing the price of the baby's room lies in the ability to project and anticipate future needs.

Baby grows fast. The cradle quickly gives way to the bed with bars, which itself gives way to a larger bed: at 3 years old, your child is already on their third bed.

Soon , it is also an office area that must be set up, not to do homework, but well before their time, quite simply to allow him to express his artistic talents.

It is in particular the need to constantly renew the furniture in my children's bedrooms that led me to think about a concept of a complete bedroom that is original and scalable, respectful of the health of the little ones and the environment. Furniture that follows the growth of the child and adapts accordingly, these are key savings and when you are going to be a parent it is an important point, because the bedroom is far from being the only item of expenditure. to be expected…

Rêves de libellule: a mother serving young parents

Rêves de libellule was born from the idea of a mother of two children (me, in this case) who was tired of not finding furniture that met her expectations in the shops.

So I decided to create a French-made baby room in wood, scalable, durable and respectful of the environment. My goal: to offer families a complete and ergonomic ecological baby room that can easily be transformed from a baby's room to a teenager's room, without having to buy additional items.

Ideal to make life easier for parents (especially during the first months of baby's life) and allow, in at the same time, children gain autonomy as they grow.
