The Look for Less: 7 Ways to Save on Kids Home Decor

By babblejillian |

Kids’ home decor is one of the many areas of life in which an unlimited budget would come in handy. You get the slight inclination to nest as soon as baby’s on the way, and suddenly you have 70 Pinterest boards full of incredibly chic, perfectly coordinated nurseries and kids rooms. Unfortunately, no matter how many issues of Dwell we tuck in our magazine rack, how many emails we send to our partner with requests for a $1,000 crib, or how many design blogs we add to our Google reader, it’s difficult to justify a ridiculously expensive piece of furniture when there’s still things like food, kids clothes, or rent (oh, that) to account for. Instead of keeping our fingers permanently crossed for an anonymous benefactor or lotto winnings, we’ve found 10 budget options for some of our favorite looks out there. Grab yourself an issue of Architectural Digest with the money you save on these low-key child-style options — it’s on us (kind of).

With clean lines, shelves for storage, and a huge workspace, this table is both a kid's and mom's dream. Sadly, the price makes it just a dream — unless you can somehow work it as a kitchen table, too?

    I just rearranged mine into more of a Montessori style so my little one has easy access to everything. He deserves a room where everything is on his level and comfortable! I love it so far!
