Green + Simple co-founder, Erica Watson, shares her favourite convertible furniture for kids. 

 

Fact; kids grow quickly. And it’s not just clothes and shoes they grow out of at a million miles an hour, it’s furniture too. It can be easy to fall into the trap of buying and updating as you hit each milestone, but if you take the time to consider what they’ll need in the (near) future, investing in quality pieces is not only smart from a sustainability standpoint but a financial one too. Which brings us to convertible kids furniture...

A cot that can turn into a bed? Change mat into a bookshelf? High chair into kids chair? Believe it or not, there are many options that will take you from the newborn stage right up until you’re waving them off on their first day of school and beyond. Although they may seem expensive up front, their multi-function (and high quality) means you’ll save pennies in the long run.
