5 USEFUL TIPS FOR CHOOSING A SUITABLE WARDROBE
Here are a number of handy tips for choosing the perfect double wardrobe for your little one.
✓ TIP 1: CHECK YOUR AVAILABLE SPACE
A double wardrobe is usually the bulkiest piece of furniture in a nursery room. So, start by checking if you have enough space together with a cot bed and baby changing table. Find the right balance: if you're short on space, opt for a compact closet, while if you still have free space, you won't regret buying a larger double wardrobe, which will be used from the first month and can last for years to come. Also be mindful: If you take a wardrobe with feet at the base, you will lose this bit of extra space and it can get dusty. The positive side is that a piece of nursery furniture looks stylish on feet, you can move the nursery furniture piece more easily and you can clean underneath. You decide what works for you and your home.

✓ TIP 2: CHOOSE A CLOSET WITH ENOUGH SPACE
The more your children grow, the more space they will need for their clothes, coats, jumpsuits, dresses, dress up costumes or accessories. Therefore, choose a spacious double wardrobe that has enough space for their items of clothing.
✓ TIP 3: OPT FOR A SOLID AND DURABLE BABYS WARDROBE
It may have happened to you that you have bought a piece of furniture that has not withstood the ravages of time. There are some pieces of nursery furniture that end up wobbling, doors start to sag off the hinges on the babys wardrobe... This is not the case with Petite Amélie nursery furniture sets! It is therefore essential to focus your attention on the following points of a babys wardrobe: the hinges, hanging rails and soft close drawers must be sturdy and appear to be robust. The thickness of the doors will also come into play: make sure the wood is solid. Materials that are too thin do not age well after years of use, while a solid wooden double wardrobe with well manufactured doors will always mean durability.
For example, the modern BOCCA babys wardrobe or the CERISE babys wardrobe are both great choices for durability yet still being super stylish.

✓ TIP 4: BABY CLOTHES STORAGE - CHOOSE A TIMELESS DESIGN
In general, a solid baby clothes storage piece can last you between 10 and 15 years: this is not a purchase to be taken lightly! This is also why it is best to opt for timeless designs which your little one will continue to appreciate over the years. A classic, Scandinavian or contemporary style baby clothes storage unit will work very well: it can easily be combined with other styles in your home!

WHERE TO INSTALL YOUR DOUBLE WARDROBE?
- leave enough space in front of the doors of the closet so that you can easily access it without knocking anything
- avoid installing the closet near a window so as not to darken the room
- try not to place your wardrobe right next to the entrance or doorway to keep an "unobstructed" impression.
