Good Questions: Good Dresser for a Changing Table?

A friend of ours is on the hunt for a dresser that will double as the changing table when her baby is born.

I'm looking for something simple and affordable- something that will easily work as a dresser as they grow. But it has to be a comfortable height for changing. Any suggestions?

Well, it's a great idea to use a regular dresser for changing, especially if you're limited in space. A good height would be about 36" tall. A standard table might be 20" wide x 26" long x 36" high. A standard changing pad is 17" x 33".

As far as dressers, Ikea is a good place to start. The Malm 4 drawer has a really clean, simple design, good dimensions, and a great price.

The Mandal might also work and has a very modern look.

If you're willing to spend a little bit more on a quality piece of furniture, we like the Simple 6 Drawer Dress above from Land of Nod. The surface has ample room for both the changing table and a place to put supplies.

Readers- can you recommend a dresser/changing table?
